MSA 200 C-BQ is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Chain Saw. First off, It's a really great saw. I use the ap300 battery with it. I've used it on small and big projects. Recently helped build a fence with this saw. Cut 36 6x6 fence post tops and about 30 1x6 boards and it still had 50% charge! No, it's not gonna cut down 3 or 4-foot wide trees all day. Yet it's 'still' a really good saw for trimming and felling anything under 25-30 inches. The only thing that I wish was better is the bar length. 14 inches is the maximum length for Stihl. If it was maybe say, 18in, then it would be the perfect saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw It's small and light, no mixing fuel or pulling a rope. The torque of the electric motor feels stronger than a similar sized gas saw. Each battery lasts about as long as a tank of gas. I am a Land Surveyor and occasionally have to cut a sight line. This way I can be much more stealthy about it. Sometimes carry it on my trailbike for downed trees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grab it and go reliability. I've had this saw for a little more than 2 years I guess. I was interested in buying the 160 c-bq, when asking my dealer Eric what he thought of it ...he said they just came out with a little bigger one u might b interested in...I have been very impressed! I initially thought I'd use it for cutting buzz poles for my atv trailer that's 4x8' ; With the 300 battery I fill this trailer with 3" to6" dia. hardwood poles and still have 3 outa the 4 battery lights left. So I started using it to fill my full size pickup bed with similar size poles...I still have 1 or 2lights left when it's full to above the side panels. Yeah, you can bogg the saw down if you push it to hard or the chains dull...let it cut it's plenty fast and the nicest thing is no pulling a rope or fooling with gas or best of all no ear plugs or head phones to wear when it's hot outdoors. The saw sharpens quick but you will go thru chains quicker cause the teeth are small...also be aware the files are small too and they are easy to bend if u push to hard on em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, capable saw Perfect saw for limbing. Has plenty of power for big logs too. I was a little apprehensive about buying a battery powered chain saw, but this saw does not disappoint in any way. It is expensive and hard to pay so much more than the cost of the equivalent gas saw, but no gas, fumes, and always ready to run make it worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More saw than I expected considering it is battery powered. This is a great little saw that is a real performer. Don't expect it to be equivalent to a gas engine powered saw but it has its own advantages. Working off a ladder or platform lift is easier. NO noise to annoy nearby neighbors. No gasoline smell in the back of my Jeep when I take it with me 4 wheeling. Small chain size ideal for carving logs for decorative architectural trim. Long lasting battery life is good for back woods trail maintenance where noise is an annoyance to others. Overall a good purchase and I just bought bar oil that is environmentally friendly for use around streams and wet lands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save yourself the time I admit that I tried to save some money before buying this saw. I read a whole host of comparison reviews and it suggested that a "big box store" was fairly close to the Stihl in performance. After two weeks of the "other" I was not thrilled with the performance as compared to my friend's description of the Stihl. The biggest concern is that the "other" needs for the battery to cool down after it is depleted (about 45 minutes) prior to charging. Whereas the Stihl is 20-25 minutes. No waiting. After borrowing a Stihl from my local dealer for a day I was truly impressed. Dropped a 45 yo swamp cedar, pruned it , chopped it up for firewood and still had half a battery left. As a homeowner that is more than enough for me. Bought the saw the next day and can't recommend the saw or Mayer Power Equipment enough. These guys are top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it all the time, as a professional landscaper- I love it Silent cutting- it makes a contentious branch cut a non issue, the crazy neighbor doesn't freak out, the cops or county officials aren't called in- it makes everything seem small and basic. It is a great chainsaw- no doubt- but the best is working without the smell and noise that attracts biased interference from the public . Buying another soon, have 3 already.
