The MS 261 C-M has all the same great features as the MS 261 —low exhaust emissions, high fuel efficiency and robust performance— but also features the advanced STIHL M-Tronic engine management system. The STIHL M-Tronic onboard microprocessor digitally monitors and automatically compensates for changes in your work conditions, including elevation, temperature, fuel quality, varying octane levels, and dirty filters. The end result is maximum performance across a wide range of cutting conditions without making any manual adjustments. The MS 261 C-M also features redesigned cylinders and a slimmer, ergonomic housing for an impressive power-to-weight ratio.

  • STIHL M-Tronic - This product features M-Tronic (M) - a new generation of Intelligent Engine Management that eliminates the low and high-speed carburetor adjustment screws, compensates for the dirty air filters and changes in elevation and fuel quality for optimum engine power at all times.
  • The decompression valve, also called 'deco' or 'deco valve,' vents compression in the cylinder for easier starting. The decompression valve temporarily reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope. It is opened manually and closes automatically as soon as the engine fires.
  • Pre-Separation Air Filtration System time-saving technology boosts the efficiency of the engine’s filter system, doubling the time between air filter cleanings. Air drawn into the engine is first separated via centrifugal force, ejecting the heavier dirt particles before being routed to the air filter. This pre-separation means less dirt to be captured by the air filter, resulting in less frequent cleaning and maintenance.
  • Side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.
  • STIHL has developed a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products as more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.
