    Default What saw should I get to replace the Stihl 200T?

    I lost my 200T in the Santa Rosa fires. What's the best replacement nowadays? I've heard bad things about the 201T...

    Those are a thing of the past.
    Stihl fucked up. Dealt with it really badly.
    It'll never quite go away, too many pissed off people for good reason, but the T201 is a fine saw today.

    I've seen about 4 201t's used for a while and all were good. I don't know about the new 201t C though

    Yep, welcome.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    I've heard the mtronic 201tc is a good saw. The earlier 201t was a dud.
    Hearing good stuff about Echo 355T too.

    Yep, they sure did... At first I was hearing bad things about the 201T. But, now they're okay? Are they using Zama carbs? I much prefer Walbro.
