VIRGINIA BEACH , VA – With advanced reduced-emission engine technology, the STIHL MS 201 C-E chainsaw cuts engine emissions by a remarkable 70 percent over previous models. Plus, improved fuel efficiency delivers longer runtimes and helps reduce fuel costs. An improved air filtration system allows for 30 percent longer operation between filter maintenance as compared to previous models.

Innovative design and reliable performance make the MS 201 C-E ideal for those needing a lightweight saw for cleanup and firewood cutting tasks and it still packs plenty of power for professional applications. Low vibration and improved ergonomics make the chainsaw comfortable to operate longer. The STIHL Easy2Start™ system provides a simplified startup while the Master Control Lever™ gives operators convenient control over starting, operating and stopping.
