Standard Features

STIHL M-Tronic (M) engine management

This fully electronic engine management system adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering in all operating modes. It also takes external conditions such as temperature, altitude and fuel quality into account. It ensures consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. M-Tronic makes manual carburettor adjustments unnecessary. Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition, now there is only one start position on the combi-lever. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, and can immediately accelerate up to speed – even after a cold start. M-Tronic also remembers the settings from the last time the tool was used. So when external conditions are the same, optimal engine performance is available every time you start up again.

Combi-lever with a stop button function

Thanks to the M-Tronic’s ability to electronically distinguish between a cold or warm start, there is only one start position (▲)  on the combi-lever. The exact amount of fuel needed for each kind of start-up is provided automatically. So you don’t have to worry about what operational mode your chain saw is in – with this little beauty you can power up to full speed straight away, even after a cold start.

Anti-vibration system

Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

Compact dimensions – excellent handling

A solid casing, smooth surfaces and compact dimensions prevent the tool from snagging or getting caught on clothes or twigs.

Decompression valve and ElastoStart

The decompression valve in conjunction with ElastoStart reduces the tractive force on the starter cord, making it easier to start the engine. This is due to the fact that the decompression valve reduces the compression when the tool is started

Captive nuts

It’s impossible to lose the sprocket cover nuts when you’re swapping cutting attachments, as they are attached to the actual sprocket cover.

STIHL side-mounted chain tensioning

The saw chain can be tightened effortlessly using the side-mounted chain tensioner while avoiding contact with the sharp saw chain.

STIHL filling system

Both the fuel and oil tanks have large openings, making them easy to cleanly refill. The fuel tank is transparent, so the fuel level is always visible. The patented STIHL special caps on the tanks can be easily opened and closed without the need for tools.

Long-life air filter system with air routing and HD2 filter

The MS 261 C-M chain saw will win you over with its long filter life. It comes equipped with a long-life air filter system which uses air routing to remove larger particles of dirt, meaning the actual filter has less to do. The HD2 filter is made of polyethylene and its pores are up to 70% finer than those made of polyamide so it can stop even the most minute particles of dust.

STIHL Ematic chain lubrication system

The oil pump can be adjusted to deliver just the right amount of oil to suit the cutting attachment you’re using or the kind of wood with which you are working. A precisely measured amount of chain lubricant is delivered to exactly where it’s needed. This reduces the amount of chain lubricant used by up to 50%, depending on the type of wood and the cutting attachment used.
