Model Features
  • Zoom
    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.
  • Zoom
    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.
  • Zoom
    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.
  • 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.

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 chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) additional chain braking feature, 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 chainsaws.
* 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 4.3 out of 5 by 15reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by It has preformed great for what I got it for. Got the saw to cut down big cotton wood trees that have caught on fire do to lightning. Im on a volunteer fire department. Never falles a storm comes through and caches a trees on fire. I got tired of late nights watching to make sure the trees don't start a grass fire. Now I can get the tree down and out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The big timber champ I've been a professional timber faller for over 35 years. I specialize in jacking big timber. I love the MS880. I run 3/8, .063 full skip chisel chain with an 8 tooth sprocket and this saw will comfortably pull a 60" bar. One of my favorite features of this saw is the flat sided starter cover. It is much easier to sight in my lay with this flat cover as compared to the rounded cover on the 660's. I normally run a 42" bar on the 880 but when the wood gets big or difficult (like really steep ground), I'll pull a 50" or 60" bar. I do the falling with the 880 and buck the big 16's off the butt with it then finish out the top of the trees with a 660. This saw was made for people like me. It's powerful, smooth, quiet, light weight and reliable. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a good saw but it is a handful I just bought a ms 660 and a MS 880 some of my older saws was stolen the 880 is powerful it runs beautifully with it I purchased a skip chain a 41 and 60 inch bar I cut oak wood this monster goes through it like butter I had steel products for 10 years never had manufacturer defects but like anything else you have to maintain them if you want the least amount of trouble in the field if I had to replace them again I would do it the same choice May 26, 2014
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
