For greater maneuverability when felling large trees, turn to the impressive performance of the MS 661 R C-M. Its wrap-around handle also provides greater operator comfort when cutting. Just like the MS 661 C-M, the saw includes STIHL M-Tronic™ engine management technology and delivers less vibration and 20% greater fuel efficiency than the MS 660. Other features include long-life filter system using HD-2 filter elements to provide longer run times between maintenance, an ElastoStart™ handle and a high output adjustable oiler. (Wrap-handle version is available in select areas only).
When it comes to logging, farming, land clearing, tree service and big firewood cutting jobs, professionals trust the unique features that make STIHL the #1 selling brand of gasoline-powered handheld outdoor power equipment in America*. And at STIHL, we have a particular fondness for our professional category chainsaws. It’s where we built our reputation in the first place. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™, Q = an additional chain braking system, R = wrap handle, and M = STIHL M-Tronic™.
Andreas Stihl developed the first electric chainsaw in 1926 and our first gasoline-powered saw in 1929. And not unlike the early automobiles of the Roaring 20’s, our chainsaws’ essential components – engine, bar and chain – remain familiar, though very much advanced, elements of our original chainsaw. Today, STIHL continues to put a high value on engineering and performance. That is why we custom design and manufacture our own guide bars and saw chains for all our machines in-house. This ensures optimal chainsaw performance in the field.
