    Generally a good saw, with some minor issues


    Problems with new MS 201 T


    Purchased new saw to replace 019T. Saw gradually lost performance and returned to dealer after perhaps 5 hours work. Dealer said replaced spark plug (advised a common issue). Saw working again but after around 10 hours performance dropped to being unusable. Fiddled with settings - no difference. Back to Dealer. Very disappointing after many years using Stihl equipment.

    Nothing on a 200t


    I've blown 2 up so far,they keep getting slop in the crank as the stihl shop tell me, won't hold normal revs. They work hard for about 1 hr but after that you need to take it back to get it re tuned. I have 2 of them 1 is at the shop while the other is working and vise versa. I wouldn't buy one for a few years so they can get rid of all these problems.
    Try and stick with a rebuild on a 200t they were a great saw.
    Good power once up to full rev but takes a bit to get there. Very frustrating
    To much for a still product, I have had at least 20 saws in the 15 years of my tree business, no other still product have had problems

    Have to agree the 201 is garbage, WHY Sthil? Why you change something so perfect for something so bad? A 200t with a thousand hours on it will run all over a fresh 201!
