I guess this is old news for most here, but this MS201T on the scale is 11 lbs full of fuel ,bar oil and b/c. Without the b/c and fully fueled and oiled it weighs 9.4. Why didn't the guy weigh it empty and no b/c???

And it appears this saw with the upside bar is a stolen test model prototype and is being shipped back to Stihl. One other prototype 201 is missing in the Baltimore area. :o

Test saw shows primer bulb in US.

Guys in UK feedback.

Had a play with one of the two MS201t's today and It doesnt have a primer, it is however an excellent saw. Slightly bigger than the old 200 due to the new EU engine standards. Bigger handle, bigger air filter. A little heavier than the 200 but not much and its still really well balanced. But pretty much the same as the 200.



although it's slightly heaver with an empty fuel tank, with a full tank it's lighter. It has a smaller tank than the 200T, but with a 20% better fuel consumption it should run for longer.

It is on the German Stihl web-site, and the specs show just a marginal increase over the 200T. Power specs are up by .1 kW.
