Rated 5 out of 5 by MS193T Bad To The Bone. Don't be afraid to buy the MS193T vs MS201T. I was very hesitant but as a home owner I really couldn't see spending another $320 for the 201. I was really hoping it would not constantly bog down or be miserably slow. With the 14" factory bar, this saw is nothing short of incredible. I have a MS310 (4.0 hp) with a 20", 3/8 chain and this saw is equally impressive in cut speed and rpms. October 22, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great for light use. Not for everyday heavy use Good for light/medium use. Tendency to get very hot really fast. Burns the clutch plate. After one year of heavy in the tree use, it blew the spark plug out of the cylinder head by completely striping the threads. October 17, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 193T - Decent I got the 16 inch bar .050 with a yellow chain on it...dont go any smaller its just a waste of a saw to do that. So after about 5-10 tanks of fuel it has really came around to becoming a nice saw. Its like the saw needs an excessive amount of break-in time, which I read the proper break in process as well in the manual and followed that. I have many other Stihl saws up to 660 Mag and have loved them all...This is just decent... October 12, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not the saw for everyday use Upon starting my own small business, I purchased a number of Stihl saws. My first top handle saw was the 192 TC which I still use almost daily today, 3 years after purchase. When I took the saw in for repair (my fault) I purchased a 193 to use while the other saw was in for repair. After less than a week, and approximate 8 hours of use, the saw would not run.I took the saw in for repair under warranty, but the issue was not resolved. A refund was refused, and I still needed a saw, so I purchased another one in good faith that the first was simply a defective product. I have had the second 193 in for repair due to a throttle linkage issue numerous times, as it happens almost weekly. The saw lacks severely in power compared to my 192, and has given me problems regularily.My advice to anyone in the industry is to pay more initially and save money in the long run. Since the issues, I have purchased a 201 which has been an amazing product. The 193 may be the product for someone who doesn't do much cutting and is looking for a lightweight, easy to use saw for around the yard, but for daily repetitive use, the 193 is not a dependable product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features. So far this saw is great! Its very light and easy to handle with 1 hand or 2. It cuts like a much larger saw. Easy to start and restart. Easy to dismantle and clean. September 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw This saw is very light weight and maneuverable to prune with, but also has the power to cut through larger limbs and smaller trunks without getting bogged down. I use Stihls' oil mix and haven't had any troubles starting this saw for nearly a year of use. I hardly ever use my other chainsaws because it's just so much easier to grab this saw and go knock out a job. September 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Throttle linkage problem Throttle linkage has disconnected twice since i have bought my 193t whats the deal? I would like a video to repair it. is this a poor design or just a problem with my saw? September 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My go to saw I was watching my tree guys use this saw one day when they were trimming an old pine and bringing it down. I borrowed one that wasn't being used from the crew to help cut the dropped limbs into smaller sections...I was hooked. This is a great little saw. Light, super powerful easy to use. I bought one to use around the property on smaller jobs. Great design. Top mounted handle is perfect to use and requires less strain. I still have my big Stihl but now I don't have to drag it out for the smaller jobs.Great saw!! August 26, 2016
