    Love the balance of size weight and power
    Love the balance of size weight and power I Chain Saw Carve. I was warned away from the top handle for carving. People said it was to awkward. I love the top handle for carving. It’s great for working in tight corners. I was also surprised at how long I can carve on a single tank of gas & bar oil. I rarely use my rear handle 18” saw anymore. This saw can be a fussy starter when it's warm. 3 to 4 Pulls. Maybe I'm the fussy one. 1 pull would be nice.

    Very light and very good cutting saw for upper tree work.
    The MS 193 T is a very light saw. Very easy to start and easy to handle while working in the top of trees. Mine is fitted with a 16 inch bar and cuts through limbs up to 10 inches very quickly while not wearing me out. It takes a little longer for bigger branches. I use my MS 660 Magnum for the trunk and have trees on the ground in short order.

    Quality, what else can you expect from STIHL?
    I've put about two tanks of fuel through this saw. So far so good. It has good power for it's weight, and compared to my MS180 it is just as fast or faster. I can't say much about the longevity but so far it cuts well, it is light (obviously) and is well built. Only complaint is the handle is very small, with gloves on my hand fill them up and my hands are average sized (M-L glove size).

    A Perfect Carving Saw
    I got my 150 soon after they came out & I absolutely LOVE it. If you're a chainsaw carver and you don't own one, you're missing out. It comes standard with a quarter-tip carving bar (I also run a dime-tip Oregon bar on mine) so it's ready to carver right out of the gate. And it's so light weight you can carve all day. The worst thing about it is that it makes all of my other saws feel like tanks.

    Extremely light
    I've had about every climbing saw there is. This is the easiest to you. So light there is no reason for a pruning saw. Going to get a few more

    Excellent for the occasional in-tree arborist.
    Does the MS 150 have the power of the slightly larger models? No. But its miniscule weight & ease of use more than make up for that. It's so light, I've forgotten it was clipped to my saddle. If all I'm doing is delimbing, this saw is always my first choice. If I'm going to block-down the spar, then I'll take up my MS 192 T. Even if you're not in a tree, I'd recommend the MS 150 T for lots of ground work. Its lighter weight (both in a tree or on the ground) goes a long way in reducing fatigue ... read more ... and that means I get more work done.
