Rated 5 out of 5 by Torture tested. Work four days a week. Ontop of work. The saws run hot but never argues. The moter barley growels cutting hedge and oak. New sharpen chain every five to ten trees between my 271 and my 170, no trees is a match. 75 ft and plus. Clean after every use and still runs like the day I bought it. I love my stihl can't wait for my next one. . February 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bar Oil I'm running a MS271 w/ a 20" chain and bar. The saw is great to use, but when you are using it for a long period of time it doesn't seem like it's putting enough bar oil on the chain. There needs to be a bar oil adjuster on it. February 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First real saw I decided to step up to a Stihl saw from several other chain store carried brands. I have not been disappointed yet. The best saw I've ever had in my tool chest. I chose the 20" blade and it slices through the downed hardwood 24+" logs with little gripe and the smaller stuff even better. February 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for hardwood Felt this saw was underpowered for hardwood. Burned up cylinder after 8 hours of cutting even though I swapped out dull chains for sharp ones frequently. Expect better heat transfer / management February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw Got this saw for Christmas and have used it several times. It is easy to start even in cold weather, has plenty of power. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased This saw has done everything we needed on the farm. It always starts even on the coldest days. I would recommend having an extra chain if you are going to cut a lot of wood just to be able to a keep a sharp chain.Thi anti vibration feature is nice when cutting for hours without stopping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Running like a Stihl This is a follow up review to a problem with my 271 chain saw. It appears that it had a coil problem and once fixed the saw cranks and runs like a true Stihl.I also want to think my Stihl repersenitive for stepping in with a parts problem with my dealer.I am back and running now and thanks to all at Stihl.
