STIHL MS 461 R Rescue
A powerful and well-balanced saw that is designed exclusively for fire, rescue and emergency work service.
When conducting rescue operations, time is of the essence. Emergency workers need a dependable chainsaw to access trouble spots, provide additional ventilation, or assist with Rapid Intervention Teams (RIT) operations. With the input of professional firefighters, STIHL designed the MS 461 R Rescue specifically for fire, rescue and emergency services work. With features like an extra-large starting handle (for use with fire gloves), an extended chip deflector, a built-in tool holder and muffler, this saw is a valuable asset for first responders from coast to coast. When time matters, this rescue saw matters.
