No emissions, so the Stihl MSA 120 C-BQ can be used indoors.
Felling small trees, sectioning logs and even sculpting wood has never been so easy since the introduction of the MSA120 C-BQ. This cordless chainsaw from Stihl can be operated anywhere at any time, indoors or outdoors. How you may ask?
Secondly, with no combustion engine means there are no fumes. So you can work in enclosed areas such as a warehouse or log cabin without the worry of emissions.
Thirdly, the Stihl electric motor that powers the MSA 120 C-BQ is extremely quiet, therefore, you can work in noise-sensitive areas or unsociable hours. The motor is also very efficient and requires less maintenance compared to petrol models.
Finally, electrically powered motors do not vibrate as much as an engine powered power tools, meaning you can use the machine for longer without hand fatigue.
Stunning power, with cordless technology
Compared to a petrol chainsaw, the MSA120C-BQ offers huge advantages being cordless powered but still operates as a professional chainsaw should.
For example, you still get to use a ¼ P low profile chain to achieve that precise and smooth finish, whilst reducing chain chatter. There’s also a side chain tensioner, and a handguard to promote safety. And it still delivers the same level of high power as some similar sized chainsaws from the brand.
