Stihl has replaced the MS-193 T with an updated version simply called the MS-194 T.
The new saw has a larger 31.8cc 2-MIX engine and boasts 9% more power and 7% more torque than the previous model. It does all this without increasing the overall weight of the saw (3.3kg or 7.28 pounds).
The MS-194 T comes standard with STIHL 1/4 ” Picco Micro full chisel saw chain and a guide bar length of 30cm. This chain is specially designed to ensure less kickback, lower vibration levels, and a smooth and efficient cut.
Aside from the larger engine, it has a new intake baffle, a new cylinder with a larger bore and a new piston.
There is also a diagnostic port for easy and simple diagnosis. This saw is well-suited to deadwood removal, reductions and crown lifts as well as taking down medium-sized trees.
The MSRP is $339.95 with the 14-inch guide bar.
