    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%.

MSA 200 C-BQ is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool, needs better chain. I bought 6 different Stihl battery powered tools (push mower-RMA 510, chainsaw MSA200c, hedge trimmer HAS 66, line trimmer FSA 90R, pole saw-HTA 85 and blower BGA 85) plus three batteries and one charger, to maintain about an acre of land with grass, bushes and trees. The chainsaw MSA200c has been a good tool. Light weight, well balanced and plenty of power. The downside has been the chain. It's a very light weight chain and loses its edge fairly quickly. It only takes about 8-10 cuts of 10'-12" diameter size pine tree logs to lose its edge. Each chain is expensive and I now have keep about 5 around to cycle through to have sharpened. The battery last much longer than the chain.Over all a good tool and would recommend it, but needs a better quality chain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chainsaw has plenty of power. With 2 batteries I never run out of battery life. I bought this chainsaw and an extra battery and file set to keep the chain in sharp condition before I start and it Wears me out on a continuous basis before the batteries go down. I love the narrow width of the blade. It flies through all types of wood that I've gone through with amazing speed. I don't think a combustion-engined chainsaw could outperform this Battery machine. I don't have to mix gas or worry about old gas or any of the negative problems of a gas engine. I put in a fully charged battery in and go until I'm finished or tired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The MSA-200-C is an all around great product! We have a small farm and lots of trees. I thought when I bought this saw that I would use it just for incidental, quick clean-up jobs, but the MSA-200-C has the power to do real work! I can use it in the morning, put the battery on the charger while I'm in for lunch and then use it again in the afternoon. It is great to be able to set it down while I pick up what I've cut and then just pick it up and start cutting again. I should mention here that not listening to a saw idle while I'm picking up is a bonus! I would recommend this saw to anyone looking to buy an electric saw. I am amazed at the power and battery life and am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing can beat this saw for performance or ease of use. Have cut small diameter trees, large limbs off of a ladder and trees on the ground and could not find 1 negative about this saw.
