Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mistake Stihl has many great saws until the ms 201 Tcm. Why change the formula whn you done figured it out long ago. Whn I bought it I told the salesman I just don’t know about this ideal with this saw. So it sits ,now I use 355 no problems .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SAW. I waited a year or longer for Stihl to work the bugs out of it and started talking to climbers for a few large tree company's in my area.Asked them if Stihl got the bugs out of this saw.The answer's were all positive they said this is the only saw they use for climbing.They love the power and fuel economy.So that was what I was waiting for bought one and love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BUY 2, Starting Issues The saw always started first or second pull, and worked beyond expectation, however if I turned the saw off, there was no chance at re-starting the saw. After waiting a unknown amount of time - overnight - the saw would once again start flawlessly, and perform beyond expectation. However, if I turned it off for any reason, I would have to wait overnight to use it again, or an hour or two.I kicked the saw in after owning it for a year. I liked the saw so much for in tree use, that I am tempted to buy it again to see if I have the same problem.This was my first saw, ever, and I am not sure if the 3 tank break in period was the cause, or if I ran the chain too tight the first couple of tanks. What ever the cause, the saw is in my garage with the handle all kicked in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good climbing saw, would like a bit more power. A very good climbing saw. Has been very reliable starting and running but doesn't have quite as much power as I was hoping for. A good saw that is, for the most part, worth the investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My third saw of this make. I have owned the last 3 generations of this saw. My last 020 just started having problems and it is 11 years old. The new saw has the power and weight ratio nailed. It is comfortable to use for hours. I preferred the twist on fuel and oil caps but not a big deal. The only minor issue I have from the saw after 2 weeks of working with it is that I have to choke it almost every start. It may be due to a break in period. I don't remember if that was the case with my previous saws. Once they were running for a couple minutes, there was no need to choke and they would typically start on the first pull.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good saw but those carbs suck So I have three of these saws with 16" barsThey are used daily and year round. They are powerful and smooth. After less than a year I had to put a new carb in one. The technician I talked to says that he's replaced more than 10 carbs in the ms201tc this year and that the computer is useless to get information from. Some things that need improvement -the air filter cover sucks. It's brittle-the m tronic carb is prone to failure and needs replacement These problems shouldn't be happening with stihl products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One handed greatness Bought this little guy for in-tree use and small around the house stuff but find my self using it for big stuff i would normally use my 362 cm for. Tiny saw with boat loads of torque. You cant beet it when it come to a small saw. you will not be disappointed.
