Reviews

MS 193 T is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start. Easy to handle. Cut all my downed trees after our Santa Ana wind storm. Glad I bought the Stijl 193. It was very well balanced and cut all my down trees from our recent Santa Ana wind storm. Looked at all the chainsaws at the Big stores but wasn’t happy till I saw the Stihl 193 and the quality. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oil Leak from factory I purchased this chainsaw and brought it back the next day. Chainsaw would not idle and it was leaking oil from the bottom. did not even cut with it yet..I called the Dealer to check in on it after the weekend and was told that it would be 2 weeks before my saw gets diag. I Explained that the saw was purchased brand new and was brought in the next day.. 2 weeks later i got a call saying the chainsaw is fixed. I understand that defects happen and but the customer service on this is horrible. Out of 3/4 service techs did not know how to start this saw. I was warned that you would flood the engine after 5 attempts but they went ahead and flooded the engine when trying to start for the first time...Do not purchase from ACE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let your wife use this saw I bought this saw for use in trees as a climbing saw with a 12 inch bar. My wife looked at it and said 'What are you going to cut with that? I have yet to use it, she has limbed oak, hickory and pines and dropped oaks 10 inches thick. The best part is that she has yet to complain about hard starting or any other problems sfter it was broken in. I'm going to have to buy another for myself.
