  • Quiet
    The STIHL Cordless tools are so quiet you don't even need to wear ear protection. They are ideal to use in noise sensitive areas like schools, hotels and parks.

    Tension the chain easily without using tools or coming into contact with the sharp chain. Just release the sprocket cover and turn the adjusting wheel until the optimum tension is reached.
  • STIHL Electric Motor (EC)
    STIHL Electric Motor (EC)
    The STIHL brushless electric motor (EC) is extremely energy efficient and does not require any maintenance. It ensures the tool has the optimum power output at all times. The motor runs quietly and generates very low vibrations.
  • Ematic Chain Lubrication System
    Ematic Chain Lubrication System
    A reservoir holds bar oil until it is picked up by the passing chain. This achieves maximum lubrication resulting in longer wear and less oil consumption.
  • QuickStop Super Brake (Q)
    QuickStop Super Brake (Q)
    An additional braking system for increased safety, designed by STIHL. The Chain is stopped within a second, helping to protect the user.
  • Neutral Battery Position
    Neutral Battery Position
    The Battery can be inserted into the tool in 2 steps. In the first position, the Battery does not connect with the contacts, in this position it is secure but the tool will not operate allowing for safe transport. In the second position the battery is completely inserted ready for operation of the tool.
  • Clear Chain Oil Tank
    Clear Chain Oil Tank
    The clear viewing window in the tank allows you to check the chain oil level easily without having to remove the oil filler cap.

Q: What Type of Property is Suitable for?

A: This saw is designed for garden maintenance and cutting smaller diameter firewood.

Q: What size branches can I cut?

A: Small diameter branches up to 12 inch

Q: What should I wear when using this Chainsaw?

A: We recommend that you wear snug-fitting clothes with Chainsaw protective legwear, glasses, gloves and sturdy boots or shoes, and tie back long hair.

Q: How long will the Battery last?

A: The recommended AK 30 Battery will last up to 45 minutes or 180 cuts, this does depend on what is being cut and how the tool is being used.

Q: Are the Batteries Interchangeable?

A: There are three different batteries in the COMPACT range, which all have different capacities. However for the MSA 140, we only recommend the high capacity AK 30 battery as it is provides enough power to operate the tool to it's potential. We do not recommend the AK 10 or AK 20 batteries for this tool.

Q: How long does it take to charge?

A: To fully charge an AK 30 Battery it takes 205 minutes, or to charge it up to 80%, it takes 160 minutes with the AL 101 charger.

Q: Does the performance of the Battery reduce as it depletes?

A: No there is no gradual drop in performance – the battery runs at full power until it is fully depleted.
