Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Only complaint I have is it's weight. It's an excellent saw otherwise. Great everyday professional tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw I really like this saw. A little bit tricky and difficult to start but once it's running for a bit and stops, much easier to start after that. It's lightweight and it meets my cutting needs. I am able to store it in a 22" toolbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good saw in the right hands I like my 193T. That being said, I work for a tree service in SW Oregon. We put some serious hours on our saws. I'm accustomed to the 200T, so the 193 took some time to get to know. The only bad thing about this saw, is the spark arrestor screen. In 2 months time, my saw was bogging in cut. No power. Tweaked the carb to no avail. Turned out the screen was totally gummed up with 2mm of unburnt material. On non ethanol 93 octane, husky xp oil, at 50:1. So yeah, if you don't need the screen, save it for fire season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome light saw I reclaim barn wood and coral planks, and install new lumber. I'm cutting full dimensional green Western doug fir, and greyed pine, cottonwood, doug fir, lodge pole pine. Love this saw. O and I run the yellow chain and not a low kickback with 12inch bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No guts. No glory I wish I had gone to a better dealer who knew the Stihl product line. The MS 193T was not really the saw I was looking for and a better dealer would have told me that. Instead I talked to a salesman who was flippant and poorly informed. Don't get me wrong it is a good saw, but not the one I should have bought. I wanted a saw with better power for bigger jobs. I was clearing hurricane debris and needed a saw with some guts to it for the big job I had ahead of me. Instead I got a saw that is designed for lighter work up in a tree taking out branches. That is what this saw is good for. It is a light weight saw you can use with one arm, but don't expect it to take on bigger jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small saw Great saw.. first time owner of Stihl.. bought the 193 and 362 cm both really reliable saws compared to previous saws I've owned..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Please someone tell me the numbers on the chain i know its a 14 inch i’ve got two chains and both are to big to fit in groove on the bar the teeth are to wide

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light weight, but plenty power . I am using this saw to trim branches on fallen trees. Very easy on the body, because of its light weight and it is well balanced. The oiler works very well. The chain never went dry. Great chain saw for light work on ground or aloft.
