    Ematic™ Lubrication System
    The Ematic™ guide bar, when used with STIHL OILOMATIC® saw chain, will provide proper lubrication and less oil consumption than conventional methods. The system works because two ramps, strategically placed in the guide bar rail, help contain the flow of oil and direct all lubrication to the sliding faces of the bar and chain links as well as the rivets and driver holes, which in turn can reduce bar oil consumption up to 50%.

Are You Ready for a STIHL?

MSA 200 C-BQ is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product from a Sceptic First off. I have owned several Stihl products and have loved the quality and performance of all of them. Now for the good stuff. This is my first electric battery powered chainsaw. I was a huge sceptic at first, knowing that I needed a new chainsaw, but was afraid to venture out to something with new technology. The weight is fabulous! Very light and very nimble. I opted for a 14" blade which does all of my yard work and most of my 4-Wheeling downed trees across the trail. The power is something considerable to a 300 series gas when in altitude except there is no loss of HP even at 11,000 ft! The batteries tend to last about 30-40 mins when constantly cutting but will last me all day when working outside. I carry 2 batteries and charges take a little over an hour each from dead. I would recommend 3 batteries if your going to cut non-stop all day so they each have time to charge. One note on the batteries though, is that 3 or 4 bars equals full power but 1-2 has limited torque and can only be used for cutting small branches, etc. The best part of the saw is the ability to just pick it up and cut...then set right back down...no starting or yanking the cord constantly and shutting off or waiting to warm up. My only real complaint is that I wish they made a slightly bigger saw for larger trees with a 16" or 18" bar but so far...I have only ran into needing a larger blade once. I also wish I had a better selection of chains to choose from as there is only one. If does cut very fine and sometimes I need a chipper.Overall. I would say, buy this saw if you want to carry on your ATV or Jeep or need a small saw for working around your property.(No keeping extra fuel onboard and risk of leakage). I would not buy this for a primary wood cutting saw but everything else. Ill leave those days to my 460!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful little saw I've had this only for a little while. So far done trimming of saplings in the yard. Easy to get down close to the ground. I think that it will be essential to have the 300 battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Chain Saw. First off, It's a really great saw. I use the ap300 battery with it. I've used it on small and big projects. Recently helped build a fence with this saw. Cut 36 6x6 fence post tops and about 30 1x6 boards and it still had 50% charge! No, it's not gonna cut down 3 or 4-foot wide trees all day. Yet it's 'still' a really good saw for trimming and felling anything under 25-30 inches. The only thing that I wish was better is the bar length. 14 inches is the maximum length for Stihl. If it was maybe say, 18in, then it would be the perfect saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from reliability and performance I have always been hesitant with new things or ideas, but once in awhile there is actually a product that is worthy of its claims and this one is it. I am totally happy and very satisfied with this saw. The ease of operation and the performance of this saw is a testament to your companies on going desire to make our job easier and safer to perform. I would and have recommended this product to family and friends alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw It's small and light, no mixing fuel or pulling a rope. The torque of the electric motor feels stronger than a similar sized gas saw. Each battery lasts about as long as a tank of gas. I am a Land Surveyor and occasionally have to cut a sight line. This way I can be much more stealthy about it. Sometimes carry it on my trailbike for downed trees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grab it and go reliability. I've had this saw for a little more than 2 years I guess. I was interested in buying the 160 c-bq, when asking my dealer Eric what he thought of it ...he said they just came out with a little bigger one u might b interested in...I have been very impressed! I initially thought I'd use it for cutting buzz poles for my atv trailer that's 4x8' ; With the 300 battery I fill this trailer with 3" to6" dia. hardwood poles and still have 3 outa the 4 battery lights left. So I started using it to fill my full size pickup bed with similar size poles...I still have 1 or 2lights left when it's full to above the side panels. Yeah, you can bogg the saw down if you push it to hard or the chains dull...let it cut it's plenty fast and the nicest thing is no pulling a rope or fooling with gas or best of all no ear plugs or head phones to wear when it's hot outdoors. The saw sharpens quick but you will go thru chains quicker cause the teeth are small...also be aware the files are small too and they are easy to bend if u push to hard on em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, capable saw Perfect saw for limbing. Has plenty of power for big logs too. I was a little apprehensive about buying a battery powered chain saw, but this saw does not disappoint in any way. It is expensive and hard to pay so much more than the cost of the equivalent gas saw, but no gas, fumes, and always ready to run make it worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More saw than I expected considering it is battery powered. This is a great little saw that is a real performer. Don't expect it to be equivalent to a gas engine powered saw but it has its own advantages. Working off a ladder or platform lift is easier. NO noise to annoy nearby neighbors. No gasoline smell in the back of my Jeep when I take it with me 4 wheeling. Small chain size ideal for carving logs for decorative architectural trim. Long lasting battery life is good for back woods trail maintenance where noise is an annoyance to others. Overall a good purchase and I just bought bar oil that is environmentally friendly for use around streams and wet lands.
