New, Professional STIHL Chain Saw…the ultimate in cutting performance

Professionals in forestry and agriculture will be able to rely on the smooth power
of the new STIHL MS 461.

The STIHL MS 461 is the latest addition to the chain saw family. It is a great all-around professional forestry and tree care chain saw, featuring a modern, low emission stratified charge engine with delayed stratified scavenging. It is compliant with the most stringent emission standards.

With the same power and weight as the MS 460, it offers up to 20% less fuel consumption, meaning you can spend less time re-fueling and less money on fuel. This durable chain saw also features high torque over a broad RPM range to deliver professional performance. The heavy duty HD2 filter element provides longer run times between air filter maintenance.

The raised rib on the fan housing assists with direction control during plunge cutting. Excellent straight line control and extremely low vibration levels provide for operator comfort. Additional features include toolless tank filler caps, as well as, filter and spark plug access.

Available in the following configurations: MS 461, MS 461 VW Arctic™, MS 461 R (Wrap), MS 461 VW R (Arctic™ Wrap).
