Two new chain saws will provide a huge boost to arborists and forestry professionals, who will be eager to get their hands on the new STIHL MS 201 T C-M and the MS 201 C-M. Both machines are lightweight powerhouses for anyone wanting full power from the start.

"Whether you're working in the tree tops or on the ground, the compact design, optimal handling and low weight make these chain saws very easy to use," said Greg Quigg, President of STIHL Limited. "Time and effort is also saved thanks to the STIHL M-Tronic™ technology. There's no manual carburetor adjustment needed and electronic fuel metering delivers fast and responsive acceleration even from a cold start."

STIHL M-Tronic™ technology offers the following benefits:

An easy start
Thanks to electronic cold/warm start recognition there is now only one start position on the Master Control Lever™. M-Tronic™ calculates electronically the exact fuel dosage. The engine starts after fewer pulls and with no change of position, the chain saws immediately accelerate up to speed – for strength-saving, faster work.

No manual carburetor adjustments
M-Tronic™ electronically adjusts the fuel dosage in the carburetor: whatever the operating status, whether starting, idling, partial or full-load. And it always takes account of external conditions. Saving you time and energy.

Optimal engine performance at all times
The control unit uses engine temperature and speed to continually monitor the operating status of the chain saws, feeding in the correct amount of fuel so that you always benefit from optimal engine performance.

Superb acceleration
Electronic ignition timing management and fuel dosage ensure fast and responsive acceleration – even from a cold start.

Memory function
M-Tronic™ remembers your previous settings indefinitely and restores them when you restart the chain saw. So when external conditions are the same, full engine performance is immediately at your disposal every time you start.

Only available at STIHL Authorized Dealers, the MSRP for the MS 201 T C-M is $749.95 and the MS 201C-M is $789.95 (with 16" bar).
