Everything professional woodworkers want:
The new STIHL electric chain saw MSE 250 C-Q

Stihl Chainsaw

The STIHL MSE 250 C-Q electric chain saw can do everything that counts in professional use. It delivers excellent cutting performance combined with ergonomic operation, easy servicing and low noise emission.

STIHL has developed a new and very powerful electric chain saw specifically for professionals with high expectations in terms of cutting performance and handling - the STIHL MSE 250 C-Q. Efficient, lightweight and quiet, this is the ergonomic high-end machine for demanding woodwork applications. The MSE 250 C-Q scores with a comfortable 2.5 kW power consumption and completes the top end of the new generation of high quality electric chain saws recently presented by STIHL.

The STIHL MSE 250 C-Q delivers excellent performance for applications like demanding interior carpentry or timber dressing at saw mills. This versatile electric saw is also a convincing tool for cutting firewood and for building and renovation in wood. As the saw is comparably quiet (sound pressure level 96 db(A)) despite its high power, it is also ideal for woodwork in noise-sensitive areas.

Ergonomic design

The high level of operator convenience and remarkably low weight of approximately 5 kg give the newly developed STIHL MSE 250 C-Q excellent ergonomics. The saw is perfectly balanced to sit very well in the hand. It has a non-slip soft handle for secure, precise control. The gently rounded handlebar provides an easy grip. Servicing is also straightforward and speedy. Opening and closing the patented filler cap to top up with chain oil is easy and no tools are needed. The viewing window on the tank allows the user to check the lubricant level at any time. The chain is very easy to access for rapid, straightforward changing. The proven STIHL side chain tensioner also enables it to be tightened up in no time at all, without coming into contact with the sharp teeth. Another practical feature is the captive nut on the chain sprocket cover.

Easy starting, reliable operation

With the MSE 250 C-Q the user can get to work straight away. Simply plug into a power socket and press a button to start the machine. Like all STIHL electric saws, this model is fitted with the proven STIHL QuickStop Super braking system, which brings the saw to a stop in seconds when the operator lets go of the rear handle. An overload cutout automatically protects the motor from damage due to overheating and a red LED will light up if the motor gets too hot. It only takes about one minute for it to cool down before the saw is ready for use again.

Perfect combination of motor and cutting attachment

Professionals will be impressed by the MSE 250 C-Q's high cutting power and good feed pressure behavior. The power needed is delivered by the recently developed 2.5 kW electric motor. When fitted with the recommended STIHL Rollomatic E guide bar and the low-kickback, fast-cutting Rapid Super 3 chain, the MSE 250 C-Q provides optimum plunge-cutting and cutting performance. A rugged aluminum bumper spike engages firmly with the wood for precision control of the saw. A second bumper spike can be mounted on the chain sprocket cover if necessary.

The STIHL MSE 250 C-Q is now available from authorized STIHL dealers.
