  • STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) - an additional chain braking feature

  • STIHL Electric Motor
    Lightweight and compact, STIHL electric motors require minimal maintenance and feature low noise levels and reduced vibration.
  • 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%.

MSA 200 C-BQ is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOMEOWNERS NEED THIS SAW This saw works just as good as the Stihl gas saw, I really could not believe it when I actually tried it. Runs about 40 minutes on one battery charge and the battery recharges in about 20 minutes with the fast charger. I guess in about 10 years all chain saws will be battery operated. In the long run, it will actually save you money as you do not have the buy gas or oil for this saw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed review The quality and reliability of this saw is0 excellent, well it is a Stihl so that goes without question. :-)I have a few Stihl saws because I cut no less than half the day. So my only problem is with the battery life. And I would love if someone could please answer this question: as the battery is gettin low does the saw start to lack power??? Or does it run-full-fun till the charge is depleted.Thanks, Erik

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More power than I expected. Pricey This chainsaw is ideal for light/medium duty homeowner chores. I have a 3 acre lot with oak trees and scrub brush in the Texas hill country and this tool is excellent for the routine maintenance chores on the lot.I've been very pleased with the power provided by the battery. This tool is lightweight, reliable, and very suitable for its intended use.The retail price is high, but I expect to use the chainsaw for many years and I was willing to pay for the Stihl durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated MSA 200 Has Real Power Just bought my second MSA 200, first thing I noticed, Stihl switched from a 6 to 7 tooth sprocket, more chain speed, then I tried it, a Hugh Power Increase, it literally Screams. The MSA Chainsaws,-Bars-Chain-Accessories have no equal. I Love Them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the homeowner I previously owned a gas stihl chainsaw for years. I made the switch to all the battery powered stihl tools so that my wife felt more comfortable using them. She refused to use the gas powered tools.After purchasing the chainsaw I was completely blown away. I have already used the saw for about 15 hours cutting down 7 dead trees on my property. The saw works very well and has handled everything thrown at it. This saw has all the power that a homeowner would ever need. The only regret you will have is that you didn't buy it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power, especially for occasional use I don't need a saw for everyday use, but want one that runs when I need it. I use a saw for downed limbs, or taking down dead limbs, not for taking down trees. So far this saw is perfect for that, with lots of power, enough run time for the projects I have tried so far, and the ability to turn it on and off when needed - no idling a gas saw, no restarting a gas saw because it died while I moved something. I wasn't sure a battery powered saw would have the guts needed, but I have not been disappointed. Start up cost was helped by already having other tools using the charger, but I still think total startup cost for saw, battery and charger is worth it for the performance.
