Battery Saws

Battery-powered chainsaws that deliver strong performance

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.

    Workhorse Cordless Compact Chainsaw
    Excellent cordless compact chainsaw. Has worked great for hours of continuous use for land clearing. Two AP180 batteries provide more than enough continuous use before I am ready for a break. With the new AP300 batteries I suspect by time the second one is ready for a charge one will be exhausted while the MAS 160 can keep on going. The only thing to slow down the chain saw is the need for chain sharpening.

    This battery powered saw is a great product.
    I recently purchased the Stihl MSA 160C battery powered chainsaw from a local dealer. I was interested in finding out if anyone could produce a chainsaw that could operate effectively without having to mix and use gas and/or oil, and without having to drag an electric cord around with you. Well, Stihl definitely has done it. This is a great saw for clearing small to medium size brush and tree limbs. It is very quiet, and starts up at the push of a button. When idle, of course, it makes no sound ... read more at all! Your neighbors will love this! Using the AP 180 battery, I was able to cut for over an hour, and still had 50% battery power left. This is an ideal piece of equipment for those who want convenience and easy operation.

    Good tool!
    A dependable small chainsaw without the noise and stench. Well balanced, light enough for one hand stretch work. No cord to pull, easy on elbow and shoulder. It taught me its own trigger dance: You want to speed it up all the way before the cut and keep it fast for all the cuts you have lined up. Not the squeeze-squeeze for every cut. It tends to choke up on fine twiggy stuff wrapping around the sprocket which seriously eats power . Maybe some baffle or cover redesign might help. I love ... read more it. Stealth chainsawing made real!

    One outstanding chainsaw
    I purchased this item along with 5 other lithium ion battery tools about 1 month ago. We had a severe thunderstorm hit our area the other night and the tree damage was worse than when Hurricane Sandy hit. The msa 200 worked flawlessly. It cut thru various size branches as big as 6 to 8 inches in seconds. Not only was the saw outstanding, but the battery life of the 180 was awesome. I was outside all day without going thru one battery. I purchased this saw with a 12 inch blade. I wish I had time ... read more to make a video to show how well the lithium powered saw worked. Kudos to stihl.

    Great for the homeowner
    I previously owned a gas stihl chainsaw for years. I made the switch to all the battery powered stihl tools so that my wife felt more comfortable using them. She refused to use the gas powered tools. After purchasing the chainsaw I was completely blown away. I have already used the saw for about 15 hours cutting down 7 dead trees on my property. The saw works very well and has handled everything thrown at it. This saw has all the power that a homeowner would ever need. The only regret you ... read more will have is that you didn't buy it sooner.

    Buy this saw and you will never go back to gasoline
    Never in a million years did I think I would ever give up my gas-powered chain saw for an electric one. Now, after only a couple of months of ownership - I will never go back to gas. I am telling all my friends to make the switch. I'm going around the neighborhood asking people if I can do some tree work in their yard, just for the heck of it - this thing is so easy and fun to use. Lightweight but PLENTY OF POWER, and soooo quiet...you have to see it (and NOT hear it) to believe it. Now I'm ... read more looking to switch out all of my other lawn and garden equipment......!!!

    Best battery- powered chainsaw we have ever owned.
    A bit pricey but the compact size and the fact there is no rope to pull to start it makes this ideal for my wife. No gasoline engine hassles, of course. Pretty quiet. The battery is 36 volt and will do a lot of work before needing to be recharged. It recharges fully in less than 2 hours. We are very happy with it.

    Exceeded expectations.
    I needed a light weight, strong, easy to start chainsaw. This saw is that and so much more. I do not need tools to tighten the chain and the battery charges very quickly should you need to do more than 40 or so minutes of cutting. It is very safe to use and cuts exceptionally well for residential smaller trees and lager branches. Everything bigger should be done by a pro.

    Perfect for homeowner.
    Really good for homeowner use. Battery lasts a surprisingly long time. Enough power for any 12"-18" cut. This is an expensive tool, but you save the aggrevations of mixing fuel and balky starts, earsplitting noise and toxic fumes. A fair trade to me. Recommended highly.
