    Anti-Vibration System
    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.

    STIHL ElastoStart™
    The ElastoStart™ starter handle is an exclusive feature of STIHL. It is a starting grip with a built-in shock absorber that helps reduce the effort when pulling on the starter cord. The ElastoStart™ starter grip noticeably reduces the sudden peak forces (compression) normally felt during cranking. The forces which occur at the grip after the first compression stroke are smoothed out.

    IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
    The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.

    Side-Access Chain Tensioner
    The 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 Quickstop®
    STIHL chain saws are equipped with a chain stopping system designed to reduce the risk of injury in certain kickback situations. It is called a STIHL Quickstop® chain brake. The STIHL Quickstop® chain brake is designed to stop the rotation of the chain if activated by the operator’s hand or by inertia if the saw kicks back with sufficient force. In some working positions, the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake can be activated by inertia, stopping the chain within fractions of a second.

    Ematic™ Lubrication System
    The Ematic™ guide bar when used with STIHL OILOMATIC® saw chain will provide proper lubrication and less oil consumption than conventional methods. The system works because two ramps, strategically placed in the guide bar rail, help contain the flow of oil and direct all lubrication to the sliding faces of the bar and chain links as well as the rivets and driver holes, which in turn can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50%.
  • Zoom
    Master Control Lever™
    The Master Control Lever™ is an easy to use single lever, operating the choke, starting throttle lock and on-off switch. The operator must pull the throttle trigger before moving the Master Control Lever™ to the choke position.
  • Zoom
    Decompression Valve
    The decompression valve, also referred to as '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.

    Winter/Summer Shutter
    The Winter/Summer Shutter allows the carburetor to operate at optimum temperature year-round and helps to prevent carburetor icing when working below 50°F (10°C).

Important Information
WARNING! The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chain saws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus additional chain braking feature (Q), STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.

STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chain saws.
* The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length depending upon which power head it is installed.
Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% Ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% Ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start, very dependable. I have been using Stihl saws for years. My bigger saws were the O46 and the O66. Both are great saws. I recently purchased the 880 with a 41 inch bar, thinking it would have around 1/5 more power than my O66 for cutting through bigger logs. I was disappointed in the power with the longer bar. I ordered a 30 inch bar and chain to try and get the cutting speed where I had expected it. It did cut faster, but for the money I would stick with the O66 (now the 660). January 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome saw and a dream to operate! I bought this saw about six months ago and have ripped through hundreds if not thousands of board feet of storm damaged red oak, white oak, hickory and poplar. it is not amazingly hard to start once you get a feel for it. usually takes two or three pulls in the all the way down throttle position and then move one up and another two or three pulls and it fires right up! i have found that warming it up a bit at say half throttle keeps it from cutting off numerous times. i do run high octane fuel and the new two cycle engine oil for all three of my Stihl saws. January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great saw for big wood A big powerful saw that will cut large wood with no problems. My 880 is equiped with a 47 inch bar and full comp chain when I cut up large oak trees here. Never have had a time where the saw was not able to do the job I ased it to do. I change to a 24" bar when I need to cut rounds into pieces small enough to move around and load onto my trailer. It cuts a good bit faster than my 066, doing the same job. Would not want to lug it around all day, but for the uses I have for it, the 880 is a perfict choice. It is also great to see the look on peoples faces when they get to run this big of a saw for the first time. December 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by this saw has alot more power than any other saw out there i log for a living and im allways runnning my 880 and great has a ton of power to turn a 50" bar and chain and i highly recommend this product its the best on the market November 4, 2013

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not to happy I just bought 880 brand new and only 7 cuts with it and done for. The dealer said it needs new power head.I owen 30 stihl saw never seen anything like this before. October 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by my died after 6 months? I am a stihl fan I buy everything stihl I am lately becoming unhappy with there products. The 404 grinder wheels are not lasting long at all they break off after sharpening half a chain.. I bought a ms880 in very good used condition 2years ago it was the older model 880 with the massize muffler that saw was amazing I retired it because I rolled s big tree over it. Even after that it still ran like a monster. I bought a brand new 880 6 months ago it had problems from the beginning I felt much less power and weaker compression. Today it died I took it to Stihl they are telling me the piston and cylinder are bad . I always run St IHL 2 cycle oil. ? Over all not happy with this saw. Stihl needs to design a better air intake filter . I have the 660 and 880 there is far to much dust getting past the air filter and burning up my saws!!!!! However I have 6 bars for this saw so I will buy another 880. And hope for a longer lasting saw with no factory defects!! July 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by One Heck of a Saw I have two MS880's one with a 32" bar and one with a 41" bar. I use the 41" to fell and the other for bucking, stumpage, or "just in case". You don't want to be felling a huge tree near structures and not have a backup saw of equal size. I have to say it is a HUGE jump in weight from the 660, however, the ease of which it pulls a .404 standard sequence chain over a 32"+ bar through extremely dense grain Texas Live Oak is really remarkable. I wouldn't worry much about the size getting you hurt unless you are climbing over limbs with the saw still running. It's so heavy that the power doesn't throw the saw back at you like the smaller saws. The only reason to have a saw like this is to fell or buck trees that are at least 40" diameter. Don't expect to cut firewood with this thing without taking a couple breaks. April 23, 2013
