Iíve had a couple 192ís , theyíre ridiculously light but not strong runners. Iíll never own one again as long as I can keep my MS200ís going.

I was so frustrated with my last rear handle 192 I tossed it from a tree at better than 50í...childish , yes..but also very rewarding!

Find a 200 or 201.

This was a easy way to get fired Big companies say to use the hand saw, but that's not always happening.
If you canít hand control with a handsaw how could you with a chainsaw?

I didn't say you could use a chain saw where you couldn't use a hand saw. I meant it as, a lot of guys will just use the saw one handed as long as safety isn't watching.

I honestly think they would love a Cordless hackzall with a pruning blade for that type of stuff.

This post makes me chuckle! When I bought my mobile home park years ago. There was a three acre section that was vacant land over grown with Chinese elms and russian olives. Nasty damn trees. I set out to clear cut the nasty shit. I had my dads old 032. Heavy ass old saw but a cutting beast. I needed a saw to limb after cutting them down so I bought a huskivarna (sp) I hated that thing so much I took it to the local saw shop and told them they could have the piece of shit as long as I never had to see it again. I’m sure their commercial saws are better. Buy the regular joe models are piles of shit!

I've owned a 191T for years.
a decade maybe?

14" bar IIRC?
little guy.
handy AF when you're on a ladder, or just whacking off low limbs in the field that you smack your head on while mowing. beats carrying a "real" saw out there for light work.

still way lighter than any of the battery powered saws.

Oh, I know.

My point in this thread was just that top handled saws were not designed to be used one handed. Much like a angle grinder isnít designed to be used without its guard.

Is it done all day? Yes.
Is it a smart work practice? No.

That Looks like a good little saw in a lot better class than the 170. I had to look it up and they have that listed as a pro saw. Iíd say good score. Iíd have no problem using that for what you intend. Maybe put on a good chain if that one is fubared and go to town.

well I beat the piss out of it yesterday and it ran amazing after I got the carb tuned properly, was very surprised how well it cuts for its size. sips fuel too very good on gas. broke the pull cable but ordered a whole new side cover that has metal parts instead of the factory plastic bits.

did some research and the engine is designed very well and has some huge transfer ports for the size and has some spicy timing.

I have the husky version of the 193 now. Its pretty handy.

I used to have a MS200T. That thing would really go like stink. They are getting hard to come by.

Battery sawzalls, used to use them. Then I was shown some of the silky hand saws. Those things are ungodly sharp and make the small stuff super easy. So much easier to carry around the battery saw has been put away for years. Then I bought a silky pole saw. I’m not sure if I fired up the gas stihl pole saw in the past year. It certainly still has a place but the hand silkies cut so fast I’d rather not carry it around.

You paid $125 for your Stihl? Is buying a super deal a fair comparison? A new stihl pole saw is $600 IIRC. I hardly seen them used for half that.

I love my 200t. I have a 2100xp, and a mid size husky pro saw, model escapes me. The 200 gets 80% of the use. Top handle saws are awesome.

Nice saw, I think you'll love it. I've got a little Husky 435T, seems to be a great tool so far and perfect for when I'm hanging sideways off an extension ladder

I really want to pick one up, but have not come across the right deal. My boss tells me he has one he would part with, but not sure what he wants for it.

I use my MS025 when I am in the bucket truck, but even then sometimes I feel I put myself in precarious situations where it is too big to over power if I had to.

I have used my sawzall and it can work well, but sometimes you need to make a quick cut and it is not ideal for that.
