Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight and balanced, easy pull rope I was having so much trouble with my lower back when I was cutting up the smaller stuff when I would drop a tree with my 039 . I carried the weight of the saw out in front of me. I would cut for fifteen minutes then lay on the ground for five minutes with lower back pain . With this saw being so light and balanced with the top handle I can cut till I am done with the tops and have not been on the ground resting my back sense I bought it. I always find my self smile when I pull the rope, pulls so easy , I do not have to stand on it or get it in a choke hold to start it, I am sure there is safety concerns about using chainsaws in one hand only, but if you are going to anyway you have to try one of these, the top handle is the difference, the back of the saw is holding up the front of the saw, it does not want to nose down. Plenty of power, low vibrations,With the newer smaller wood stoves there is a need for the one to two inch diameter wood, it is not brush anymore. August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw. Longer break-in period required. There is nothing I don't like about this saw. It does take a while longer for it to be entirely broke-in. People need to have patience with the break-in period of this particular Stihl offering,...... but once it's broke-in,.... WOW. August 25, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Happy I love the 200t, just bought the 201t and its a let down. Heaver not as balanced as I'm used to with the 200. The first time I used it I thought I would adjust and get comfortable with it, has not happened. The saw was purchased new and I'm the first to use it. At high RPM the saw sounds like it is on a rev limiter. The run time on fuel and bar oil is less than the 200. Simply put, its not the saw I'll reach for first, and it's a lot of money to be the back up saw. August 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great in tree saw Have had this little guy for about 9 months and it has made me so much money in the tree. Starts every time in the tree have had no issues whatsoever. The chain that came with the saw is still going strong after about 20 trees from soft maple, ash, white pine to white oaks. cuts fast and clean. Cant say anything bad about this saw. July 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointed I have 2, 260 pro , 361,460 stihl saws....then their the 201. I wish I had my money back. Looking into echo June 27, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sorry I purchased this saw. I work with cedar a lot. I have 3 other Stihl saws but was looking for a nice light saw easy to manuver around in fallen cedar trees trimming branches from main trunk. I had been looking at this saw over a few months at the local dealer. Finally broke down and made the purchase. Saw takes forever to ref up, after taking into dealer to see if there was a problem, its worse now than before. Just does not the quality of saw I expect out of Stihl. Not worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what you expect from STIHL The 201 is not half what the ms200 was. Save your money and buy something else. Constantly acts like its bogging and has no power at all. I own 23 stihl saws and run a tree business this is the worst saw I have have ever had and this is the 3rd one I have tried. April 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A top handle with some power First off this is my first pro top handle saw but I have used the 200t thats all the rave many times and been using 009s for years as a top handle. Overall I love this saw! It handles very well, has a lot of torque (more than the 200t) for a small saw, great on fuel, and the new chain for these are the best safety chain I have ever used!The only things I would change at first were: ONE, it takes a second to rev up. SECOND, the rpm's dont seem to be as quite as fast compared the the 200T.But I like the extra torque and better fuel consumption over the 200 so I can live with these two things. And if I cant I will port and tune it when that day comes. April 21, 2014
