    Love the balance of size weight and power
    Love the balance of size weight and power I Chain Saw Carve. I was warned away from the top handle for carving. People said it was to awkward. I love the top handle for carving. It’s great for working in tight corners. I was also surprised at how long I can carve on a single tank of gas & bar oil. I rarely use my rear handle 18” saw anymore. This saw can be a fussy starter when it's warm. 3 to 4 Pulls. Maybe I'm the fussy one. 1 pull would be nice.

    Awesome saw
    I was looking for a top handle saw to replace my old ms 210 I was climbing with, and I was chose the ms 193 with a 12" bar over the 201 because of the price. I am very pleased with the quality of it, has plenty of power and it is much more comfortable climbing with it while limbing out a tree. The only drawback to it is the small fuel tank. Having to stop more often to lower the saw down for a refuel does slow us down some, but overall I am very pleased.

    Great Saw
    This saw is very light weight and maneuverable to prune with, but also has the power to cut through larger limbs and smaller trunks without getting bogged down. I use Stihls' oil mix and haven't had any troubles starting this saw for nearly a year of use. I hardly ever use my other chainsaws because it's just so much easier to grab this saw and go knock out a job.

    This saw is great
    Love this light weight saw...Will handle anything.. I have cut trees down 8 inches thick. it's suppose to be a limb saw, but is way more than that... I have to watch my self or I won't pick up my big saw at all... Wife loves how light weight it is and I do aswell.. save your back.. Its a bit pricey, but the first time you use it , you forget how much it was... I love it.

    Love this chain saw!!!!
    As a female I've been looking for a light weight chain saw that I could use when my husband & myself are cutting wood. I still can't start this saw. But with it weighing under 6 pounds I can use it for a long time. I love, love this saw it is exactly what I've been looking for. If anyone has shoulder problems or is older & has lost some strength. This saw is perfect for you. With it's 12 inch blade it is perfect for me to take off the limbs & cut up small to med size wood. You will be able to ... read more tell when you are trying to cut something to large for this saw.. That's when I stop. Its perfect for tree trimmers.

    Good saw
    Bought the saw for climbing...needless to say every time we have felled a tree one of us grabs it for limbing. A 6-8 inch limb is a piece of cake for this thing it's capable of more, one will have patience to let it cut the larger limbs...very easy to use with very little stress to the operator easy to start beautiful little saw. It's a spendy little saw but after you use it you'll find that it's worth it.
