Stihl ms193t

Recommended Posts

I got myself a 193 as I'd just started up contracting and took a punt on the in-between saw. I wanted a saw that was light for pruning but big enough for removals so that I didn't have to buy 2 saws. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and it has enough grunt for me. I all ways find myself trying to do to much with a 201 when a rear handled should have been sent up ages ago. As long as the 193 is kept sharp, cutting timber is no problem but a fraction slower. Just send up for a bigger saw when cutting the heavy.

On a local site here in the ROI a guy is selling a 193t ,he has it up for 200 euro ( 170 sterling). He says it was working when left in the shed about 3 years ago but he can't get it to start now. I asked him if he'd take 140 for it( about 120 sterling) after much banter he has agreed, I'm to pick it up over the next few days. I'll check for compression before any cash changes hands and hope its just a gunked up carburettor. My question is does this seem like a good or bad deal to anyone.  ..... advice please

Oh, by the way I've used a few of these top handled saws. I have to say my favourite one to pull a chain is a vintage 020 av super, it's about 38cc of raw power, however ita all metal and gets heave in the hand. Sounds like music when it's running though.

193 were good saw, i had one and certainly couldnt fault it. Worse thing is if he left crap fuel in it then tried to start it 😣  but then that aint a bad price fr one. K

Loss of compression or a faulty ignition unit would be the biggest issues....loss of compression being the worst.
