    The much improved 201T is great !
    This new 201T with the M-Tronic carb set up is a much improved version over the original 201T , which was lacking in many aspects. I have the original 200T also and this 201T CM is ready to make chips really fly right out of the box, leaves the original 201T in the dust. Starts easily, throttle is instant, no lag at all, keeps revs in the cut, super fuel economy compared to 200T, but with the 200T's power plus some more. If you were blind folded, I am not sure you could tell the difference ... read more between the 200T and 201T CM saws, yes 200T is louder, other than that, the 201T CM is the Arborists new king of the hill top handle saw.

    Light weight
    This Chainsaw is perfect for cut up a lot of branches. It cuts like a full size saw without the weight.

    Excellent complement to bigger saw
    Bought this for limbing downed trees and for up in the trees. It goes well when I'm tired of swinging my MS440 around. So easy to pull start and saws threw good sized limbs with ease. Easy to use from a ladder too. Haven't climbed with it yet.

    Awesome saw
    I was looking for a top handle saw to replace my old ms 210 I was climbing with, and I was chose the ms 193 with a 12" bar over the 201 because of the price. I am very pleased with the quality of it, has plenty of power and it is much more comfortable climbing with it while limbing out a tree. The only drawback to it is the small fuel tank. Having to stop more often to lower the saw down for a refuel does slow us down some, but overall I am very pleased.

    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.

    Nice Little Saw
    The 193 in a nice little saw. I’ve now run about five tanks through it and it’s running great. The power is okay, but remember it is not a saw for big stuff. You need to have the chain moving fast before you touch the branch. I’ve used it at two of my friend’s homes and now both are planning on buying one. It looks like it will replace my MS180 (if I can part with a chainsaw) and team up with my MS290 and MS440.
