The MS 201 TC-M is STIHL’s most powerful top handle chainsaw.
Comes as standard with M-Tronic and 2-MIX technology, providing optimum engine performance from the start.
The captive nut on the sprocket cover allows for quick changing of the chain.
The lightweight guide bar reduces the overall weight and keeps the saw perfectly balanced. Featuring our innovative STIHL anti-vibration system, the saw is comfortable to use over longer periods.
Top handle saws are specially designed for working in an aerial environment and can only be used by trained professionals.
The MS 201 TC-M top handle chainsaw is available in various bar lengths and is ideal for all the tasks an arborist faces on a daily basis.
