A host of additional features make the MS-201 TC-M a fantastic tool for use in an aerial environment. With a choice of 12 inch / 30 cm and 14 inch / 35 cm bar lengths.
Ideal for arborists
The primary feature of the MS-201 TC-M that marks it out is the top-handled control, combined with its exceptional power. In fact, this is STIHL's most powerful top-handled chainsaw. The handle location means it is designed for working in an aerial environment, and only for use by trained professionals. It also features a fold-out hook, which serves as a carrying rope attachment for lowering the saw and for security, as well as a scabbard with two suspension eyelets so it can be secured to a harness, and the ability to snap it directly onto the sprocket.
Exceptionally comfortable operation
STIHL's ElastoStart technology reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during start-up, while their anti-vibration system dampens engine oscillations to significantly reduce vibrations at the unit's handles. The chain tensioner is helpfully located at the side of the saw, removing the need for contact with the saw chain, and a manual fuel pump is on hand to reduce the number of starting strokes following extended breaks in operation. A weight of only 3.7 kg excluding fuel, bar and chain, mean this is a perfectly balanced saw that is comfortable to use.
An excellent feature of this particular model is STIHL's M-Tronic electronic engine management system, which adjusts ignition timing and fuel metering to ensure consistent engine performance, a constant maximum speed and superb acceleration. The engine itself uses STIHL's efficient 2-MIX technology, and the Ematic chain lubrication system is used to provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods.
