MS 193 T is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, easy start, very reliable Great saw. Using it to cut firewood for wood stove and fireplace. Light weight but cuts great! Starts easy and run greats. My previous one, same model lasted for over 20 yrs. Very pleased with all the Stihl products I have.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This Product Has A Recall I purchased 2 of the 193 T Chainsaws for my tree trimming Business.I Live in Scottsdale Arizona and noticed that on Hot Days above 105F these saws were overheating to the point that the FUEL was Boiling inside the gas tank.However the other Saws that we were running were not over heating???We were also Running MS 261cm, MS 310, MS 660 Upon calling the local stihl dealer they called their local stihl rep and I was informed there is an INTAKE, CARB & EXHAUST issue they knew about that solved this overheating problem... Long Story Short make sure yours already has the new equipt on it or this saw is USELESS in the heat !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the versatility of this saw Went to buy another saw and stumbled across this lower priced home owner version top handle. The top handle is what I really wanted and this fit the price range, plus it was a Stihl like my old 029 that has been bulletproof for me. This little saw has been great. I have trimmed and cut small trees all around my house without any problems. I could not have done as much work with a full size or standard saw, so I would say it is an excellent purchase for a home owner saw. It will last as long as I do cutting and trimming. The only downfall is a lack of start up power, but with more power comes more weight, so it is a very good mix, you just have to learn to use it correctly. The top handle saws are overpriced, but this saw is worth the money for the convenience. I don't have any negative comments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw! This saw is a joy to use up in a tree. It is light, well balanced and cuts very fast.Just make sure the chain is moving before touching the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little Saw I bought my saw about 2 years ago and it's still running great with minimal wear. It's super super light and still has enough power to get the job done. If you want something that will cut all the way up too 18" diameter branches really quick I would get the ms201t but I use the ms193t for everything I come up too. Anything I think is too big I just bring up the bigger saw like you should anyway. The saw idles very smoothly with little jerk. Always starts right up. Feels real comfortable in the hand. And it's not too noticeable on the saddle. Only thing I don't like about the little saws is the clutch cover is part of the handle and whole side of the chainsaw making it tough to get back on every once in awhile. But no big deal. I have pruned trees with this saw and I have also cut 20" wood up for firewood with it. Definetly recommend this saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw is lightweight and very dependable. I've used this saw for a year now with no problems. Lightweight and runs just like the day I bought it. Plan on buying another one. I don't go anywhere in my truck without it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Has not oiled, does not oil I bought this saw last summer for a tree job. I found before using it one time that it did not oil. I took it to the dealer and they said it was fixed but it has continued to not oil. Then more recently I was using it on a job, I let my inexperienced helpers use it and they burnt up the bar and chain because the saw did not oil. I took it to the dealer who charged me money and told me it was fixed but when I tried the saw out that same day, it did not oil. This saw seems to have good power and good balance. It is probably a good saw but mine does not oil, has never properly oiled and I suspect may never oil. The dealer has not offered to replace the oil pump or replace the saw. Stihl has made me rewrite this review several times but there is no nice way to say that I think this saw sucks because IT DOES NOT OIL.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What happened to the 192 I owned 4 ms192 for years I really put it to the test loved it. 193 is not even in the same category. This muffler clogged unreliable saw has really given me a run around. Past 6 months I have had 2 brake down out on me. everything brakes on them. From the carb to the off swich, muffler clogs bar oil supply lines just everything on that saw is falling apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the balance of size weight and power Love the balance of size weight and powerI Chain Saw Carve. I was warned away from the top handle for carving. People said it was to awkward.I love the top handle for carving. It’s great for working in tight corners. I was also surprised at how long I can carve on a single tank of gas & bar oil. I rarely use my rear handle 18” saw anymore.This saw can be a fussy starter when it's warm. 3 to 4 Pulls. Maybe I'm the fussy one. 1 pull would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro climber - love it Really like these saw's. own 3 and instead of the muffler mod. I just take the spark arrester off completely (as people always have done). It wakes the saw right up. it cuts good and is light. I dont understand how people can hate it for not having 066 power? lol For removing and trimming with a 14" bar it is fine. If you come down to a bigger trunk THAN GRAB A BIGGER SAW! You should have large designated climb saw for big spars. for a set aside an 039 with 20" bar, 046 28". I guess I'd probably be mad too if I was dumb enough to try'n take on a 3' dia tree with a 14" trim saw. Remove spark arrester and use as intending and It's a great saw!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spent 4 days with it... Love it I was worried at first because of the size, but it makes up for it with power. Great for one handed use. I do wish it had the easy start system, as a climber it made me nervous at times. Other than that I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
Date published: 2016-03-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a ground use saw Bought this saw as a small ground use and brush saw. The brush use while tree is standing is great. However, the balance of the saw using it on the ground, isn't the most desirable. Good all around performance though.After about 10 minutes of use, my right shoulder was in pain. It could be me, but I have used a MS290 for years and it never bothered me.Pros, great for use while topping a tree.Cons, not for ground use.
Date published: 2016-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but good power! Great fuel economy, and very good Cain quality. The saw cuts amazingly fast for its size and weight. I may have been able to get by with the MS170, but my experience has always been that you get what you pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrble I wanted to replace my 192 for this one.Not that I needed to but figured always good to have 2.Worst mistake ever.I don't understand how can a much more powerful saw then the 192 make less power when it comes time to cutting.To start is horrible.With this alone has made me start looking into another brand.If my 200t or 192 dies I will not replace them with these new saws.I understand you have to meet emissions tests but this is just wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great limb saw I wanted to try this saw for small limbs up in a tree or pruning smaller brush. I have other sizes of saws but was looking for a smaller one for smaller work. I run a landscaping business and never know what I will need my saws for. So far this saw has performed as expected. It is more mobile and lightweight and a lot easier to use when you find yourself up in a tree.
Date published: 2015-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light and very good cutting saw for upper tree work. The MS 193 T is a very light saw. Very easy to start and easy to handle while working in the top of trees. Mine is fitted with a 16 inch bar and cuts through limbs up to 10 inches very quickly while not wearing me out. It takes a little longer for bigger branches. I use my MS 660 Magnum for the trunk and have trees on the ground in short order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw!!!! I just bought this saw early this morning to do a job. I was sceptical at first since it is such a small light saw. To my surprise the the saw seems to have great power for the size and price. I used the saw off and on for ten hours todsy and never had any issues what so ever.
Date published: 2015-10-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from A top handle saw is not a ground saw why would you take the easy start system off a saw that is used exclusively in the tree; wear balance for the arborist is imperative. I usually spend 6 to 8 hrs a day trimming and pruning trees and would guess I start a saw close to a hundred times a day, and after using this saw for a week I returned it back to the dealer because the saw was jerking me around in the tree. The easy start system on the 192 was the best thing about the saw . What were you thinking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little beast in the tree's...... Bought this to do pruning, limbing and light cutting. Does all that very well. I got mine with a 14 inch bar, which was perfect for me. Why not go bigger you say? Well, EVERYONE owns big powerful saws. They'll always be someone you know who you can use/borrow one of those for the big stuff. Now a small, super lightweight saw is something everyone wishes they had for all the smaller tasks. For my needs, its perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome little saw Had a bunch of trees in my yard to take down. Called a pro tree sevice and they have me a quote.....way too much. So....I went down to my local stihl dealer and picked up the ms 193 t for a reasonable price. Started taking down the trees that afternoon. it has enough power and weight balance to effectively bring down big branches and top out the canopy. Very fuel efficient average about 1 to 2 tanks per topping tree. Front this we started our own company...have a few 036 and a ms 391 to compliment the 193

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Little Saw The 193 in a nice little saw. I’ve now run about five tanks through it and it’s running great. The power is okay, but remember it is not a saw for big stuff. You need to have the chain moving fast before you touch the branch. I’ve used it at two of my friend’s homes and now both are planning on buying one. It looks like it will replace my MS180 (if I can part with a chainsaw) and team up with my MS290 and MS440.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome saw I was looking for a top handle saw to replace my old ms 210 I was climbing with, and I was chose the ms 193 with a 12" bar over the 201 because of the price. I am very pleased with the quality of it, has plenty of power and it is much more comfortable climbing with it while limbing out a tree. The only drawback to it is the small fuel tank. Having to stop more often to lower the saw down for a refuel does slow us down some, but overall I am very pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not near the saw as the MS 150CE The 193 TCE, even though it has 6.5 more CC it does not hold a candle to the 150 CE. I love my 261 cm but wanted a lighter trim saw and thought the 193 TCE was it. The 193 had a tough time cutting 3" limbs and was very disaponted. I returned it the next day and am perfectly happy with the 150 CE replacement. The 150 CE is the MINI 261. a great combo.
