Use the Stihl MSA 200 C-BQ anywhere, even noise-sensitive locations.
Felling small trees, sectioning logs and even sculpting wood has never been so easy since the introduction of the MSA200 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 200 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.
This machine has fantastic performance when used in conjunction with the AP 300 S. With a chain speed of 24 m/s, the EC Motor allows for fast acceleration of the saw so chain speed can be quickly picked up when needed. This machine can be used in the rain so it is ideal for the British climate throughout the year. Tensioning the chain is easy and can be done without the need for a tool. The MSA 220 uses a full chisel 3/8” PS3 chain and 35cm/14”.
Safer than petrol models, the cordless technology comes with QuickStop
Compared to a petrol chainsaw, the MSA200C-BQ offers huge advantages being cordless powered but still operates as a professional chainsaw should.
For example, you still get to use a ¼ P3 low profile chain to achieve that precise, high-performance cutting power 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.
Additionally, this machine also features a QuickStop Super Chain Brake so the chain stops immediately when the user let’s go of the rear handle, throttle or when the front guard is activated. As a consequence, when there be a strong kick-back the chain shuts off automatically, offering further protection.
The STIHL Ematic chain lubrication system provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. The oil consumption can, therefore, be reduced by up to 50%.
Features We Like
QuickStop Super Chain Brake (Q)
The additional braking system for extra safety. Users can trigger the chain brake directly at the rear handle. The chain stops in seconds whenever the user lets go of the rear handle and whenever there is sufficiently strong kickback or when the front hand guard is activated. This unique safety feature ensures even more user protection in all working positions.
STIHL Quick Chain Tensioning (B)
The STIHL chain quick tensioning system (B) makes it very easy to tension the chain. Just release the sprocket cover and turn the knob to set the optimum tension. No tools needed.
Ematic chain lubrication system
The STIHL Ematic chain lubrication system provides maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption that conventional methods of chain lubrication. The oil consumption can therefore be reduced by up to 50%.
The ergonomically shaped handle and rear control handle with comfortable soft-grip component ensure safe working in all operating positions.
The black soft component on the rear handle provides a secure and firm grip in all working positions.
