Reducing emissions by 50% and increasing fuel efficiency up to 20% as compared to previous models, the STIHL MS 261 C-Q chainsaw can minimize environmental impact and allow longer periods of use between refueling. Ideal for felling, thinning, firewood cutting and clearing, the MS 261 C-Q chainsaw features several operator-friendly components, including an advanced anti-vibration system that reduces user fatigue, a side-access chain tensioner, a translucent fuel tank, and toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers. The MS 261 C-Q also includes STIHL Quickstop® Plus, an additional chain braking feature designed to stop the chain in less than one second of releasing the rear handle.
