MS 201 C-EM
MS 201 C-EM is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight saw This is a great power to weight ratio saw. The M-tronic works much better than expected. I've buried the bar in a huge ash and it buzzed right through it. The saw is actually a pleasure to cut with and is a great compliment to my MS 270. It is expensive, but the power to weight ratio is unrivaled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent light weight saw!!!!!!!! I worked the saw all day. I used it for limbing up of about 40 trees I dropped using my ms 261 CEM(another great saw). This saw has very sharp chain and was very maneuverable in some thick clutter from the dropping of the trees. Features I like:1. Light and very compact2. very very easy to start3. no vibration feature doesn't shake and jar you4. easy to handle in tight quarters.5. cuts without wanting to back downI haven't tried it on the large stuff yet up to about 1 to 10 inches.This saw is probably how the new saws will be coming out in the future. Little saw with a powerful punch. Throws large chips never had problems with oiling.highly reccommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb for my specific needs! My Stihl MS201-C was a purchase I researched for some time. Being a relatively new model, there were not many reviews to help me in the decision process and those I did read were not all super but detailed enough that I could tell those who felt the 201-C didn't meet their expectations were really used to or comparing to a previously owned model. My requirements were that the chainsaw would be easy to start (Easy2Start System), rugged yet light, dependable, and manageable maintenance needs. The additional (Anti-Vibration) feature really does make this saw a pleasure to use as it minimizes the fatigue brought on by muscles and bones being stressed. Think smooth operation for the hands, arms and shoulders. The other features (Read the Manual) were additional bonuses. I never thought I would find a chainsaw that made cutting cedar almost fun but I do enjoy the work more now with this saw. I do clearing of property and trimming every week and this saw fits my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from starting it up I like how you don't have to struggle to start it I think it kicks back a lot more than my other saw
