The Stihl MSA 300 C-O is comparable in performance to the popular MS 261 C-M, one of our all-rounder petrol chainsaws. The STIHL MSA 300 C-O comes standard with the 16” Light 04 guide bar but it’s also available with a 18″ or 20” bar too. The RS Pro chain cuts 20% faster than the standard Rapid Super (RS) chainsaw chain due to the narrower kerf of the teeth, maximising the amount of work achievable on each charge. The new STIHL AP 500 S battery is one of five batteries in the AP system, was designed specifically to power the MSA 300 C-O. It’s the first battery in the AP System to use laminated battery cells capable of delivering an impressible high-power output of 3 kW. While it was designed especially for use with the MSA 300 C-O, it is also compatible will all models in STIHL’s growing AP Battery System with around 20% longer working times compared to the AP 300 S. The AP 500 S has STIHL Connected integrated into the battery housing too, so regardless of which machine you’re using it with, you’ll always be able to see how much work it has done.
