Strong, robust and flexible – the product advantages

Consistently rapid progress in your work

Smart motor electronics

The STIHL EC motor works extremely efficiently. This is due to smart motor electronics that select the ideal output based on the battery in use – throughout the battery discharge process. So the saw delivers consistently high cutting performance, regardless of the battery charge status.

Full cordless power

Teamed with the new AP 300 S battery from the PRO cordless power system, this device achieves extraordinary performance. Output and energy density have been even further improved from the level of the AP 300 battery. The result is full machine power and significantly faster progress in your work.

Strong cutting performance

High chain speed

Strong cutting performance comes down to more than just the motor – the cutting attachment also plays a key role. In the MSA 220 C the developers have upped the ante, with a chain speed of up to 24 m/s.

High-performance saw chains

In STIHL chainsaws, the saw chain and guide bar are always precisely coordinated with the tool. The STIHL MSA 220 C is equipped with the extremely powerful full-chisel 3/8” PS3 saw chain.

Tool-free Quick Chain Tensioning system

Chain changing made easy: Unscrew the sprocket cover, secure the new cutting attachment, reattach the sprocket cover, and easily and quickly tension the chain using the adjusting wheel. Securely re-tighten the wingnut. Done.

Precise and comfortable operation

A practical felling guide

The raised, printed felling guide on the fan housing enables you to precisely determine the tree’s direction of fall.


The unrestricted working radius of a cordless power tool in combination with a powerful drive makes the STIHL MSA 220 an all-purpose machine that can be considered for almost any application.
