Overview

Description

New lightweight power pack for professional arborists



The MS 201, STIHL’s newest professional rear-handled chain saw, is the ultimate companion for arborists, road maintenance crews and landscapers. It comes equipped with a low kickback 3/8” extended pitch Picco™ Super 3 (PS3) saw chain, patented captive bar nut on the chain sprocket cover, stainless steel muffler, diecast magnesium engine casing and a digital ignition system that ensures a smooth start every time. Designed with a stratified charge engine to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, and to double the service life of the air filter compared to its predecessor, this chain saw is the right tool for the demanding professional.

Technical Data
  • Displacement (cc): 35.2
  • Power output (kW/bhp): 1.8/2.4
  • Weight (kg / lbs): 3.9 / 8.6
  • Bar options (in): 16
Features
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 carburetor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburetor 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 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.
  • Variable-displacement oil pump: The exact chain oil output can be adjusted manually for varying conditions, allowing for a reduction of up to 50%.
