Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Saw I bought this saw after reading many reviews on the internet and talking to alot of different people. It has very good power and cuts better than any saw I have ever owned or used. The large chain makes quick work of larger trees and will even rip cut when necessary to split extremely large pieces in halves or quarters. I highly recommend this saw to anyone who cuts alot of wood. October 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding power and ease of operation Have used many different chain saws in the past and the MS 311 is one of the best chainsaws that I've ever used. Bought it cut up trees after a storm came through, and it made short work of even the biggest oak (40" in diameter) that fell. Truly enjoy the power of this chainsaw. Got the 20" bar with the saw and it never slows down. I enjoy the compression release that makes it easier to start, the fact it doesn't have a gas primer bulb (which wear out quickly) and it has the older style metal bar adjustment nuts (vice the plastic one). Overall it has been the best money I have spent on a chainsaw. The only thing negative I could say is that it is a little heavy. But considering the engine size and the power associated with it, it is understandable. Will definitely be a Stihl man for life! July 27, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Have used Stihl for many years, saws, weedeaters, blowers, like them all, very pleased June 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good saw Starts easy but only after a few days owning it had to take it back because the rope freyed down to just a few threads... after getting the saw back used it a couple days then while starting it the rope didn`t return sooooo not wanting to have to make another trip to the dealer I took it apart and fixed it myself and so far its been ok. It is a bear to cut with runs great! So hopefully there won`t be any more issues If it wasn`t for the starting rope issues I would give the saw the highest ratings... June 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw, but. . . Love the saw. I love all of my Stihl products. I however hate the flip lock fuel and oil caps. Why would you stop making a simple threaded cap???????? With gloves on it is next to impossible to get the cap on properly. Very sad to have such a great saw be blimished with such a poorly designed fuel cap. May 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's my go-to saw The MS 311 has yet to disappoint. It starts easy and consistently on the first non-priming pull. When it comes to power, it's an easy-to-handle saw that thinks it's much larger than it is. May 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the money I needed a new saw and everyone I talked too couldn't say enough good things about a Sthil. There is no comparison for a few extra dollars of the other saws.After a few initial pulls the saw was primmed and started right up. Once warmed up saw easily started with one pull while holding in hand. Decompression switch is a great feature. I first used it at our place in the mountains to fell 4 trees that were between 60' to 85' and two had a base of just over 30' using the 20' bar. All were dropped and cut in a few hours. I spent more time getting a good footing on the rocky hillside for each cut than I did cutting. I only had to adjust the chain one time and it is still sharp but I will do a quick sharpening any way.
