Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts as good as a 200t Very nice running saw. I have been running it with a 16" bar. Throttle response on the newer m tronic model is much more snappy. Even though on paper it weighs the same as the standard carb version its lighter. With a 16 its lighter then the standard carb saw with 14". Both saws fully topped off. It may have to do with the diagnostic port cut out in the front off the case. I also had one of my 200ts out to compare weight and balance. Might even be lighter then the 200. I may have to break out same scales. This saw is a Grand Slam. Good job stihl. I have been waiting on a 200t replacement and its finally happened. Fyi it is the most fuel efficient Pro climbing saw stihl has ever offered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome saw except for This saw is absolutely an awesome saw the only problem is the case design on the bar and chain oil tank side. The problem is that after a few months of putting it in and out of the bucket truck scabbard it ruins the gasket where the cases meet and starts leaking the bar and chain oil substantially. The way the cases are designed it hits the gasket every time it goes in the bucket scabbard. Hope stihl redesigns it. Also I prefer the older stihl 200 kill switch that wasn't spring loaded because sometimes it is very awkward to shut off the saw because of how far you have to push it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back the ms200 I have an amazing 7 year old ms200 and to this day is still running perfectly!I bought this new 201tcm as a backup saw and I have had nothing but problems with it since day 1. After the dealer finally admitted it was wasnt running as it should with all the hesitating and stalling they replaced the electronic controlled carb. It ran great for about 2 weeks and again started to repeat with hesitating and stalling. The ms 200 is the perfect climbing saw imo it would be nice if they could make these new saws as reliable as the old ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only saw I want in the tree As full time climber I am completely satisfied with this saw. Once it's broken in it honestly cut like a 200. Easy to start stays running great balance to it. Mostly I remove pines, this saw will handle a 22-24in log with out any problems.Also (this is probably just me) but it seems like the fuel consumption is extremely low.Can go up a 130ft ponderosa pine, limb, top and piece down the small wood all on one tank of gas with fuel to spare!The price tags sucks but the performance and reliability are worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great lightweight saw with plenty of power. I bought this saw as a replacement for the 200 T. I do volunteer work for a large disaster relief organization. This saw is very dependable and can run for many hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect In-Tree Powerhouse The 201 T M-C is an awesome saw, with excellent power, and maneuverability. The saw is easy to start, cold or hot, and usually starts with just a couple of pulls. I highly recommend this saw as it has totally lived up to my demanding expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Arborist Climbing Saw Ever!! I bought this saw about two years ago. And everyday it's like new. So much power for a climbing saw of its size. I'll definitely be buying another one this year. But there is nothing this saw can't take on When climbing. It's completely so simple to clean and maintain. I have no idea why anybody disrespects this saw? The only conclusion I can ever figure out is this: they don't care and take care of it like a treasure like I do! Lol. To end: This is probably one of the best climbing saws ever but one of the most powerful climbing saws ever too! No regrets buying it! I'll be buying another.Go STIHL or go home;)
