Battery Saws

STIHL battery-powered chainsaws bring the best of both worlds to your property. First, they deliver strong, consistent power thanks to their 36-volt Lithium-Ion technology. They’re also significantly quieter than gasoline-powered chainsaws and start instantly with the squeeze of a trigger. It’s big performance in a small, cordless package.

    reliable chainsaw for small jobs, excellent product!
    We purchased this battery-powered chainsaw after having purchased a battery-powered Stihl trimmer. Both my wife and I have found it to be a superior addition to our battery of tools to remove vegetation along our fence rows. It is lightweight and sufficiently powerful for the small trees along the fences. Its operation is quiet and without the annoying fumes that accompany our other chainsaws. We also purchased the AP 300 Lithium-Ion battery that provides approximately 45 minutes of continuous ... read more operating time with the chainsaw. We recommend it without any reservations.

    I love my chainsaw.
    I am a 55 year old girl (at heart anyway). I love my little chainsaw. I have the small battery to keep the weight down and it lasts plenty long for the amount of work I want to do at one time. Cuts through 6" trees easily making cleanup and trimming a breeze. Thank you Stihl for making a battery operated chainsaw.

    Does Amazing Job
    I purchased this saw as an early birthday present for myself! Picked up on Saturday, charged the battery and took it out to my wood pile on Sunday. Wow! This cuts through wood like a hot knife through butter. I was amazed. Did a whole rack of logs quickly and used less than half the charge. The smaller chain size make a smooth almost "finished" cut like a fine circular saw blade. I'm getting up there in years, so my Stihl Farm Boss which I got about ten years ago is getting a little heavy for ... read more the smaller everyday stuff. So when I got it serviced and the lady showed me the MSA 160 I wanted one! Did my research and everything came back to this little beauty. Very impressed. Got the 12" bar and I think this will do it all! Happy to recommend!

    Use it all the time, as a professional landscaper- I love it
    Silent cutting- it makes a contentious branch cut a non issue, the crazy neighbor doesn't freak out, the cops or county officials aren't called in- it makes everything seem small and basic. It is a great chainsaw- no doubt- but the best is working without the smell and noise that attracts biased interference from the public . Buying another soon, have 3 already.

    This saw is amazing
    I had to see this to believe it so there was a demo at a local shop I was cutting 12" red oak logs I made a lot of cuts then took the battery and installed it in the lawn mower and mowed high grass with leaves for 10 mins and they battery still was not dead I have ran over 15 other stihl chain saws works great has lots of power its amazing for what it is. I sold my gas lawnmower, gas trimmer and 2 gas chain saws and bought 2 180 Batteries fast charger, the trimmer, lawnmower and 200 chain saw.

    More saw than I expected considering it is battery powered.
    This is a great little saw that is a real performer. Don't expect it to be equivalent to a gas engine powered saw but it has its own advantages. Working off a ladder or platform lift is easier. NO noise to annoy nearby neighbors. No gasoline smell in the back of my Jeep when I take it with me 4 wheeling. Small chain size ideal for carving logs for decorative architectural trim. Long lasting battery life is good for back woods trail maintenance where noise is an annoyance to others. Overall a ... read more good purchase and I just bought bar oil that is environmentally friendly for use around streams and wet lands.

    See my review
    I am a 64 yr old grandmother who lives on a Colorado ranch. I bought this saw to help with limbing trees and brush as well as various projects around the ranch. I love the light weight and maneuverability as well as the fast and clean cutting. The size and design are excellent for the jobs I have. The battery recharges very quickly. This saw eliminates the pull start, exhaust odors, leaks, weight, and noise of a gas chain saw. The kids call it my "chick-saw".

    Great for trail maintenance
    I just got this yesterday and spend over an hour clearing paths in the woods. It's light easy to use. I wouldn't use it to get firewood, but for small stuff it's great.

    Safest Chain Saw Ever
    Yes, this chain saw cuts very well, is light and the battery lasts and lasts. But I love the safety feature. When you cut down a tree, you trim off the limbs, but the limbs have many branches that need to be trimmed. So you walk up, over, and between felled limbs and branches, all the time with a live chain saw in your hands, (and hope you don't trip). No more. This chain saw comes alive only when you use it. After each cut, you release the trigger and turn it off. To me, this is a huge, huge ... read more factor. And it will cut through some good sized limbs quite easily. Among my 6 Stihl products I have an MS 250, MS 361, etc. But this little chain saw makes tree work (I have 5 acres, fully wooded) so much easier. You don't have to start and re-start your gas-powered saws...this little booger will instantly come alive and cut.
