MS 193 T is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 50.
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.
Date published: 2017-02-28
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design for in tree work Purchased this model specifically expecting lightweight handling with good power and got that. Has even more power and speed than I expected. Cuts all size limbs with no struggle. But light enough it doesn't wear you down. It is well balanced too so no unexpected shifting or awkwardness while suspended in my harness or positioning for a cut. Easy and dependable starting, runs fine and restarts each time after first warm up. Can only think of one preference - the bar oil reservoir could be larger. I compensate by not throttling any more than necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw just wish it had a wrap handle like my old saw i have a 019t that i just got tuned up and decided to get this new saw anyway just to have extra one around for my guys to use. So far it's a really great saw just wish it had a wrap handle like my old one. stihl if you see this review go back to a wrap handle thanks Around The Ground Landscaping

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic light saw I use this saw every day for both in-tree work as well as light ground work. Never had a real problem with any aspect of this saw. Very lightweight, extremely fuel efficient, and more than enough power to push a 12" bar. Really can't think of any drawbacks other than very slightly difficult to disassemble to replace chain, but that is such a minuscule problem it's barely worth mentioning. Love it.
