MS 193 T is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start. Easy to handle. Cut all my downed trees after our Santa Ana wind storm. Glad I bought the Stijl 193. It was very well balanced and cut all my down trees from our recent Santa Ana wind storm. Looked at all the chainsaws at the Big stores but wasn’t happy till I saw the Stihl 193 and the quality. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oil Leak from factory I purchased this chainsaw and brought it back the next day. Chainsaw would not idle and it was leaking oil from the bottom. did not even cut with it yet..I called the Dealer to check in on it after the weekend and was told that it would be 2 weeks before my saw gets diag. I Explained that the saw was purchased brand new and was brought in the next day.. 2 weeks later i got a call saying the chainsaw is fixed. I understand that defects happen and but the customer service on this is horrible. Out of 3/4 service techs did not know how to start this saw. I was warned that you would flood the engine after 5 attempts but they went ahead and flooded the engine when trying to start for the first time...Do not purchase from ACE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let your wife use this saw I bought this saw for use in trees as a climbing saw with a 12 inch bar. My wife looked at it and said 'What are you going to cut with that? I have yet to use it, she has limbed oak, hickory and pines and dropped oaks 10 inches thick. The best part is that she has yet to complain about hard starting or any other problems sfter it was broken in. I'm going to have to buy another for myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not impressed with this saw I have had several stihl saws over the years and this one is the most frustrating one yet. It's doesn't always start easy like my others and it just dies randomly I feel that it was not a quality product for the price I paid.
Date published: 2017-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the weight and manuverability Easy starting, light and easy to use in a tree. Also very powerful on large limbs.
Date published: 2017-08-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw for the Money This is a great little saw for the average person. I have used it a lot and it is a good running saw. It doesn't like to sit and idle for long periods of time though. Over all unless you are going to use this thing every day all day this will be a good saw and do whatever you need it to do.
Date published: 2017-08-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use this instead of my large chainsaw for cutting smaller branches. I have a large Stihl Chainsaw that I use for cutting downed trees up to 36 inches in diameter. I wanted a smaller, light weight chainsaw for cutting branches up to 6 inches in diameter so I got this chainsaw with a 12 inch cutting bar. Works great for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, but Mighty! I've used this in tree and to branch trees on the ground. Plenty of power and with it being light weight, its easy to work with for hours, if it takes that long.
Date published: 2017-05-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little saw Seems to be an ok saw so far, it is a bit underpowered for a 14" saw compared to some other saws I have run. I do not like the low kickback chains that Stihl makes for this particular saw and I cant find any other brand or type of chain for this saw.
Date published: 2017-05-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile saw I used this saw to clear a stand of cedar trees and was surprised by it's ability to move through up to 8" of wood with ease. The light weight meant I wasn't exhausted after 2 hour of almost constant cutting and fuel consumption was minimal
Date published: 2017-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect trim saw The saw is light, easy to start, has plenty of power and is very manoverable. Also have a farm boss, works great but was too heavy and combersome to drag around for trimming duty. I use the trim saw to clean up field edges for farming, around the house and buildings, at 7lbs, you can do a lot without getting worn out. Cut around a 5 acre field in no time flat on day number 1. Can see this will get a lot of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eats wood better than a beaver I have 2 of these I use professionally. I've got one with a .050 bar and one with a .043 bar on it (numbers might be off, but you get the idea). They are great, light and cut pretty darn good. I swapped the 16 inch bar it came with for a 12 inch and it pulls pretty solidly. The position of the handle makes cutting easy, it's light so you can one hand cut things without it barking back and flipping up towards you if you're not careful. the only downside to it is there is a screw in the handle next to the power switch that comes out very rarely. It's not hard to replace, but if this is your main saw, and that happens, it renders the saw useless until you get a replacement screw in. I suggest lock tight on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice saw love this saw works great can stand on ladder and cut limbs one handed. did have small carb issue but my stihl guy fixed it easily he said the little diaphragm in carb will crack and that makes it want to sputter when you go to rev it up. but all in all great little saw DON'T RUN ETHANOL IN IT

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Under powered bogs while cutting. the 193 T is light, starts easily, and. That's where it ends. I find this saw is way. Under powered. I hoped it was only because it needed to go through its break in process, however. It never improved. The saw bogs down while cutting, you would swear the chain was on backwards, however even when I put a new chain on it, there was no improvement. On a last ditch effort I removed the spark arrestor, which helped a lot with the performance of this saw.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from carburetor/intake issues Would be a decent saw however it has been plagued with carb/intake issues from day one. Had it serviced four times for the same problem. Use of only non-ethinol fuel. Chokes completely off when you throttle the saw up and raise rpms. Idles fine and starting can be good to fair, but when you are ready to cut, it stalls out. Stihl Customer service claims no such history problem for this saw, so I'm stuck with an 'anomaly saw'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimming saw! Been cutting with an 011, Would be wore out by the end of the day. Bought the 093, fantastic little saw, easy to start, very light, not tired at the end of the day. If you do a lot of tree trimming a highly recommend this saw.
Date published: 2017-03-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as desired Not being familiar with Stihl, it took a little front end trial and error to get the sequence of starting the saw but after that it was smooth sailing, light weight but strong cutting power
Date published: 2017-03-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight handy fuel efficient Great little saw. Should have bought it years ago. This makes pruning those larger limbs quite easy. The saw is light and cuts a long time on a tank of fuel. Only needed a minor carb adjustment as it was idling to slow and dying after finishing a cut and decelerating. I've run it about 20+ hours and very satisfied with what it can do. Just a little tricky to r and r the chain (taking the cover plate off).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw, use it all day with minimal wear I have owned and managed two large hardwood tree farms and have relied on Stihl products for many years. I finally wore out a small saw after 15 years of use and decided to buy another smaller saw for limbing and small branches as well as some in tree work. I decided on the MS 193T and it's amazing. I did have the standard chain and bar replaced from the .043 Picco to .3/8 .050 to run the Rapid Super but the saw runs and cuts great. You can use it with one hand when necessary and it will tackle larger limbs rather than hauling up a larger saw. It starts quick and with little effort on the first or second pull. I've only been using it for about 3 weeks and about a dozen tanks of fuel but it seems like a good small work saw. I used it all day on a job and wasn't overly tired from use. I still use my 044 and 661 for the bigger stuff but this is a great little in tree and brush saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for cutting in the tree Very high quality. Easy to use. Very light saw. Use this saw to trim my own trees and I have many, many trees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice all around saw This is a very nice saw. It is easy to control and has very good power for a small saw. The only thing to improve on is weight. I use for in tree and limbing on the ground. The oiler works decent after the bar and chain are broken in.
