Light, agile and designed for precision, the STIHL MS 201 is ideal for harvesting thin wood, limbing and tending young stands. With its compact construction, extremely low weight and fantastic manoeuvrability, it is great to handle while offering impressively high lugging power despite its low weight. Designed for use in agriculture, forestry, gardening and landscaping operations, this light pro saw provides a high cutting and plunging performance, 20% improved fuel consumption, 30% longer filter life and 70% fewer exhaust emissions compared to previous STIHL two-stroke engines without the 2-MIX technology. It also has noticeably lower vibrations, reducing to 2.6 / 2.7 m/s2. A super light powerhouse giving great comfort at work.

Available with a 12″ or 14″ Bar and Chain – please select below

Standard Features

Reduced-emission engine technology

2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions

Advanced combustion technology

Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range

Anti-vibration system

Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

Carburettor heating (V)

By changing the chain saw from summer to winter operation, the intake air is pre-heated over the engine fins. This ensures that the carburettor does not ice up and you can continue working in freezing temperatures

STIHL ElastoStart

STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user’s joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.

Tool free filler caps

Special catches on the fuel and oil tanks for easy opening and locking without the need for tools.

Compensator

This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn’t need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.

Ematic chain lubrication system

The Ematic chain lubrication system ensures pinpoint lubrication of the saw chain links and guide bar rails. When used with STIHL OILOMATIC saw chain, it will provide maximum lubrication, longer wear and less oil consumption than conventional methods of chain lubrication. The Ematic system can reduce bar oil consumption by up to 50%.

Side chain tensioner

The tensioning screw can be found on the side of the chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain.

Single-lever master control

All important functions such as start, choke, throttle and stop are operated via a single lever.
