The Stihl MS201 TC-M chainsaw is an arborist chainsaw that has been designed for the professional. It is a light weight specialised saw for cutting branches and crown reduction.
The Stihl MS201 TC-M has a 35.2 cc engine that produces 1.8 kW / 2.4 hp power output and weighs only 3.7 kg without the bar and chain. The chainsaw features the environmentally friendly Stihl 2-MIX engine. The Stihl 2-stroke engine with 2-MIX provides plenty of torque and yet save around 20 percent on fuel compared to standard Stihl 2-stroke engines. It complies with all current EU emissions regulations.
The MS201 TC-M also features Stihl ElastoStart which is a special shock absorber grip on the starter cord to help ensure jerk-free starting without load peaks. The integrated damping element smoothes the force generated and makes the starting process easier. It has a manual controlled fuel pump and side mounted chain tensioning.
The chainsaw has a 3/8″ P PS3 chain which is a low profile full chisel tooth chain. It has excellent biting characteristics, low kick back and low vibration providing a very clean cutting surface.
You must bring a valid chainsaw license in to store to purchase a top handled saw.
What else will I need to buy with my chainsaw?
- 2-Stroke Oil.
We advise STIHL MotoMix® which is Stihl’s patented premixed fuel, specially blended for ultimate performance. Like a sports drink for your engine, this 50:1 mixture is a combination of premium non-ethanol, high-octane motor fuel and our highest-quality STIHL HP Ultra oil. Clean and convenient, MotoMix® eliminates the hassle of mixing your own 2-stroke engine fuel while providing superior performance and lubrication.

MotoMix® is also made of non-aromatic fuel and fully synthetic, highly biodegradable engine oil.
