Reviews

MS 193 T is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic light saw I use this saw every day for both in-tree work as well as light ground work. Never had a real problem with any aspect of this saw. Very lightweight, extremely fuel efficient, and more than enough power to push a 12" bar. Really can't think of any drawbacks other than very slightly difficult to disassemble to replace chain, but that is such a minuscule problem it's barely worth mentioning. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for this saw Had a devil of time starting it until it was broken in, and now it starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull every time. Had a 201 and loved it, but was too heavy in the tree for long periods. For any limb up to 8 inches thick, this 193-T slices right through it. It will cut larger limbs and small trees, but the reliable start and easy maintenance make this a real winner at this price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, what else can you expect from STIHL? I've put about two tanks of fuel through this saw. So far so good. It has good power for it's weight, and compared to my MS180 it is just as fast or faster. I can't say much about the longevity but so far it cuts well, it is light (obviously) and is well built. Only complaint is the handle is very small, with gloves on my hand fill them up and my hands are average sized (M-L glove size).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I had my doubts about this saw, but they've been silenced. I put 5 or 6 hours first time out, It worked perfect. Didn't have to go through a 5 tank break-in phase. Its light, powerful and balanced. a real pleasure to have at your side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance First few tankfuls of fuel the saw seemed to load up and wanted to die. After about 4-5 tankfuls it has come around and runs much better. Spent nearly eight hours cutting nothing but mesquite of various sizes with no issues and much less fatigue than I would have with my bigger saws. Mesquite is a true test for me as to what a saw can handle, it is brutal on equipment. Keep a sharp chain on this unit and it does the work as designed. I keep this saw in my jeep for clearing trails around ranch and deer lease, It has proven itself exceptionally versatile for its size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MS193T Bad To The Bone. Don't be afraid to buy the MS193T vs MS201T. I was very hesitant but as a home owner I really couldn't see spending another $320 for the 201. I was really hoping it would not constantly bog down or be miserably slow. With the 14" factory bar, this saw is nothing short of incredible. I have a MS310 (4.0 hp) with a 20", 3/8 chain and this saw is equally impressive in cut speed and rpms.
