The Stihl MS 201 TC-M is the most powerful saw that STIHL produces in the top handled category. It is designed for the professional who works at heights and faces unique challenges that operators on the ground often don’t need to consider. STIHL has loaded this technological powerhouse with many advanced features that get you working efficiently and help to keep you safe.
Fold-out hook – Raise, lower and keep your saw secure with this convenient hook. And when you don’t need it, push it in so it won’t get in your way.
Scabbard – Cover the clamp end stop with the scabbard to protect yourself and those around you. It attaches firmly by snapping directly onto the sprocket, and when it’s not in use you can keep it attached it to your harness and out of the way with the two suspension eyelets.
Captive nuts – Never loose sprocket nuts again when changing the cutting attachment with STIHL’s first chainsaw with captive nuts.
Anti-vibration system – Don’t risk permanent damage to the blood vessels of your hands and arms from repeated power tool use. Damaging handle vibration is minimised by reducing machine engine oscillations.
STIHL ElastoStart – Why let your body absorb compression shock when ElastoStart can do it instead? Protect your joints and muscles, and let the rubber element or spring in the starter handle take the strain.
Manual fuel pump (Purger) – Get going with minimal fuss. Fuel is delivered to the carburettor with the simple touch of a button and this reduces the number of starting strokes required.
Single-lever master control – Ease of use figures front and centre with this chainsaw. A single lever gives you access to all the major functions including start and stop, choke and throttle.
STIHL’s electronic engine management system accounts for factors such as temperature and fuel quality as well as altitude to give you constant maximum speed and suburb acceleration every time. Manual carburettor adjustments are unnecessary, and the engine starts with fewer pulls and immediately accelerates to full speed regardless of temperature. M-Tronic remembers settings from your last start to give you optimal, consistent performance.
Achieve efficient performance and save money with thorough fuel-air mixing achieved by STIHL’s four overflow channels. You get optimal combustion, lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range. Get consistent power with advanced carburettor control that automatically detects the quantity of air present and adjusts fuel content accordingly. That way, even as the air filter gets clogged, you still get the optimal fuel-air ratio. And you only need to clean the filter when there’s a noticeable drop in power.
Variable-displacement oil pump – Reduce oil consumption by up to 50 percent when you use the E position. STIHL’s variable-displacement oil pump will precisely distribute oil as it is required. And you can manually add oil for those times when you need to use longer cutting attachments or are cutting dry wood.
Ematic chain lubrication system – This system gives precise application of chainsaw oil, and when it is combined with STIHL OILOMATIC chainsaw oil, not only do you get maximum lubrication, which reduces chain wear, but also a reduction in oil consumption by up to 50 percent.
