Model Features

    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 based on which powerhead it is installed on.
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…

MS 880 MAGNUM® is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for large trees Not for general use. Same shape as a 660 but bigger in all dimensions. A bit heavier but not like the older large saws. Great for bucking large logs or several logs at once when they are in a deck. I like how it pulls in the midrange and does not have to be wound up like the 660.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can make some changes I have an Alaskan sawmill! The chainsaw is pretty strong but has met it's match. I wished Stihl would get in the market to outfit their saws with aftermarket companies idea's. Could definitely rethink the chain tightening process. I have been a Stihl user since 1997and have witnessed some amazing changes in the products they offer. But would love to see Stihl get into Alaskan sawmill configuration with their overall industry leading technology and techniques. Because we all know how German engineering is

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scary Powerful This saw has been a dream of mine. And now I own it! All I can say is the wait was well worth it. This saw is so powerful it's scary. The saw encourages a good challenge this saw will laugh whatever is in front. Just begs for more wood to cut! You will NEVER wanna put this sexy saw down once you start it! I bought this with a 41 on it and never looked back just always so happy I can say and proudly tell people I own the Stihl 880ms

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great powerhead Another great saw right out of the box. I use this saw to power my turbosawmill. Plenty of power right out of the box, no need for mods. Its expensive, but your not buying it for the price point, your buying it because you need guaranteed dependable power right from the start, and that's what you get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, why did I wait so long!! I don't write very many reviews about anything, but I now own 5 Stihl saws! A few weeks ago I picked up my MS 880 for milling trees for lumber. I already have a MS 660 and two smaller pro saws and a pro pole saw- all that I use for cutting firewood, lumber for furniture making and for bowl turning. Now, while I'm not bad at throwing these saws around cutting trees and milling some wood, it's not my full time job-I am a weekend cutter. My wife thought the 660 was way to big for me. After I brought home the 880, she gave up.The MS 880 is simply the finest saw made....period. I have said before in a review that I learned about stihl saws many years ago when I joined the fire department; Stihl was all we used and after all these years, they are all I own. The 880 makes all the saws I have ever used look and cut like mediocre tools-including my smaller pro Stihl saws!The 880 is well balanced but very heavy, especially with bars 40" and longer. The 880 is also a powerhouse, professional saw. You have to pull the cord yourself and use it to fully appreciate and respect this saws unbelievable power-scary. If you don't have a lot of experience with using chain saws, this is not the saw for you. There are so many reasons why they say this saw is made for professionals only (not weekend worriers like me!). While, for fun, I have done some bucking with this saw (with a square skip-chain, it literally cuts large hardwoods like a sharp knife through butter), I really bought it to mill wood with an Alaskan Mill. I don't have the experience needed to be plunge-cutting with a saw this powerful. I cannot say enough about all my Stihl saws, but the 880 has become my favorite. You can keep your Husky's and all your cheap big box-store saws.....I have learned over the years, you just cannot beat a Stihl chain saw! I am a proud and thankful Stihl owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.
