Cutting edge innovation from STIHL

STIHL has introduced the MS 261 C-M chainsaw, designed for felling small to medium sized trees, as well as snedding.

Light and well balanced, the MS 261 C-M can also be used with a range of bar lengths depending on the application.

The chainsaw features STIHL’s M-Tronic engine management system that offers users fast acceleration, easy starting and optimum power when needed most. Fuel supply is electronically controlled and the machine automatically adapts to operating in ambient conditions for optimal engine performance. All this information is stored in the system and allows operators to restart quickly after extended breaks.

Other features include 2-MIX technology which increases performance whilst significantly reducing fuel consumption, says STIHL. The MS 261 C-M reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% and emissions by up to 50%.

The HD2 filter is made from polyethylene filter material that offers up to 70% finer pores than fleece and polyamide filters, helping to trap very fine dust. Maintenance of the filter is kept simple due to its oil and water-repellent qualities.

A controlled delivery oil pump allows for precise delivery of chain oil based on the demand of the application. The volume of oil can be easily increased if the MS 261 C-M is being used with longer bar or on very dry wood.

The MS 261 C-M is the first STIHL chainsaw to be equipped with captive nuts, ensuring the operator will not risk losing the nuts on the sprocket when changing the cutting attachment.
