Third generation Stihl MS 261 C-M available in Q1 of 2020

The third generation of the STIHL MS 261 C-M gasoline chainsaw will be available at the beginning of 2020.

The saw offers 20 percent more cutting capacity at a reduced weight. STIHL achieved this by shaving weight from the cylinder and slimming down the sprocket cover and bumper spikes.

The 261 received a comprehensive makeover with an optimized engine as well as a new cutting attachment.

According to STIHL the saw has an extra 0.1 kW engine performance making it the best power to weight ratio in its displacement class.
