The STIHL MS 881 Petrol Chainsaw, currently the world’s most powerful production chainsaw, is the ideal tool for professional foresters and loggers. This high-performance saw has the highest displacement (121.6 cc) and engine power (6.4 kW) in the market, making it suitable for the most demanding forestry jobs. Excellent for working in extreme conditions and for harvesting big timber, this chainsaw can also be fitted to a saw frame for additional versatility. The MS 881 features a 2-MIX engine to comply with EU5 emission regulation and an HD2 filter to ensure a long-service life.

Equipped with STIHL’s cutting-edge technologies, this chainsaw ensures an easy and safe operation. The anti-vibration system effectively dampens the oscillations from the machine’s engine, reducing vibrations at the handles and mitigating long-term effects on the user’s hands and arms. The decompression valve, as part of the easy starting system, reduces the compression pressure when starting and lessens the effort needed to pull the starter rope. In addition, the compensator in the carburettor maintains the fuel/air ratio constant, thus ensuring a constant engine power, even as the air filter becomes clogged.

The MS 881 chainsaw is available in three bar lengths options of 30″, 36″, and 41″ with a .404″ Rapid Super chain, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs. Its built-in carburettor heating ensures the chainsaw’s optimum operation even in freezing temperatures, while the Ematic chain lubrication system provides pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails for maximum lubrication and less oil consumption.
