The Stihl MS 201 T takes over as Stihl’s top arborist saw. Designed for tree trimming professionals looking for fuel-efficient, reduced-emission equipment, the top-handle Stihl MS 201 T chain saw uses advanced engine technology to reduce engine emissions to a remarkable 70 percent less than the previous model. In addition, the MS 201 T delivers 20 percent better fuel economy, providing longer run times between refueling, and an improved filtration system allows for 30 percent longer operation between filter maintenance. All this plus additional power.
“When I am at work climbing tree after tree, I need a chain saw with the most aggressive power,” said Mark Chisholm, certified arborist with Aspen Tree Expert Company in New Jersey and three-time International Society of Arboriculture Tree Climbing Champion. “If I can add 20 percent more fuel efficiency and lose 70 percent emissions and not compromise any performance – it’s a no brainer.”
The MS 201 T chain saw is designed with user comfort in mind, featuring improved ergonomics to reduce operator fatigue, including reduced vibration. For “in-tree” cutting, the top-handle design provides good balance and is ideal for use in the confined conditions of “in the tree” work. The Master Control Lever provides easier starting, operating and stopping.
