The NEW MS 201 T top-handled chainsaw is here!

Available now, the new STIHL MS 201 T top-handled chainsaw.

Successor to the renowned STIHL MS 200 T, the new MS 201 T certainly upholds the status of STIHL's top-handled specialist. In fact we believe it's even better. For a start it delivers more power and greater cutting performance. Its new engine reduces fuel consumption and cuts running costs. And vibrations are reduced, making it even more pleasant and comfortable to use. It also feels reassuringly familiar, so arborists can be assured of the same well-balanced machine and a top-performing chainsaw that is reliable, robust and truly designed for its task. 

Designed for its task. Built to last.
Compact and neat, the new MS 201 T is designed with smooth, rounded contours to ensure it will not get caught up as it is hoisted through trees. The materials used are specifically selected to be lightweight and very tough, and when the chainsaw is fuelled it weighs less than its predecessor.

Improved performance. More cost-efficient to run.
Set to impress, the new model's advanced STIHL 2-MIX engine reduces emissions by a significant 70% whilst delivering increased power output. Reduced emissions mean the MS 201 T already complies with strict EU II emissions standards due to come into force in 2014, and make it kinder on the environment as well as more pleasant in use. 

Cost-conscious as well as eco-efficient, the new engine's improved fuel economy will be welcomed by users, with fuel consumption cut by up to 20% compared to its predecessor. And the highly efficient new air filter system offers further cost savings; air filter life is extended by as much as 100% - efficiently doubling the interval between filter cleaning or replacement.
Impressive cutting performance. Another world-first saw chain.
A key factor in the MS 200 T's popularity is its great cutting performance, and users will not be left disappointed with the new model here either, particularly as it boasts a 15% improvement. The new 2-MIX engine drives consistent power to the saw chain, which is a new full chisel tooth design for a fast and clean cut. Another world first from STIHL, the Picco Super 3 (PS3) chain has been designed specifically for professional tree maintenance use; combining exceptionally powerful cutting performance with low-vibration and low-kickback qualities, its bite is quick so it cuts clean and smooth.

With all these improvements and added attention to detail – like the patented captive nut on the sprocket cover which means it will not come off (or get lost in the woods), the new MS 201 T chainsaw is certainly set to be another hit with arborists.
