A compact professional chainsaw with a powerfully efficient engine.

MS 193 T
MS 193 T is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice all around saw This is a very nice saw. It is easy to control and has very good power for a small saw. The only thing to improve on is weight. I use for in tree and limbing on the ground. The oiler works decent after the bar and chain are broken in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design for in tree work Purchased this model specifically expecting lightweight handling with good power and got that. Has even more power and speed than I expected. Cuts all size limbs with no struggle. But light enough it doesn't wear you down. It is well balanced too so no unexpected shifting or awkwardness while suspended in my harness or positioning for a cut. Easy and dependable starting, runs fine and restarts each time after first warm up. Can only think of one preference - the bar oil reservoir could be larger. I compensate by not throttling any more than necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw just wish it had a wrap handle like my old saw i have a 019t that i just got tuned up and decided to get this new saw anyway just to have extra one around for my guys to use. So far it's a really great saw just wish it had a wrap handle like my old one. stihl if you see this review go back to a wrap handle thanks Around The Ground Landscaping

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic light saw I use this saw every day for both in-tree work as well as light ground work. Never had a real problem with any aspect of this saw. Very lightweight, extremely fuel efficient, and more than enough power to push a 12" bar. Really can't think of any drawbacks other than very slightly difficult to disassemble to replace chain, but that is such a minuscule problem it's barely worth mentioning. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for this saw Had a devil of time starting it until it was broken in, and now it starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull every time. Had a 201 and loved it, but was too heavy in the tree for long periods. For any limb up to 8 inches thick, this 193-T slices right through it. It will cut larger limbs and small trees, but the reliable start and easy maintenance make this a real winner at this price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I had my doubts about this saw, but they've been silenced. I put 5 or 6 hours first time out, It worked perfect. Didn't have to go through a 5 tank break-in phase. Its light, powerful and balanced. a real pleasure to have at your side.
