The same great MS 261, but with advanced STIHL M-Tronic™ and STIHL Quickstop® Plus technologies.
The MS 261 C-MQ has all the same great features as the MS 261 – low emissions, high fuel efficiency and performance – for professional users and homeowners with large jobs with the added benefit of advanced STIHL® M-Tronic™ engine management system. With STIHL M-Tronic an onboard microprocessor digitally monitors and automatically compensates for changes in your work conditions including elevation, temperature, fuel quality, varying octane levels and dirty air filters. The end result is maximum performance across a wide range of cutting conditions without making any manual adjustments. The saw also features STIHL Quickstop® Plus, an additional chain braking feature designed to stop the chain in less than one second when you completely release the rear handle.
