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 good power I do chainsaw carvings and I needed a saw with a little more power to do blocking before I do the more detail work. This saw does the job and is relatively light weight for its size. February 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Added to 038 Super I've run an 038 Super for 25 years. I started with a 24" bar and wore it out. By then I realized a smaller bar would meet my needs as I no longer was bucking 36" oaks. I went for an 18" bar and wore out 2 chains and almost 2 more. It quit oiling the bar properly and I needed to cut a pecan and several oaks. So I purchased the MS 311 with a 20" bar with the RS chain (yellow). I was amazed and pleased as I sped thru the oaks and while the 311 has slightly less horsepower it has quickly cut thru anything I have put it to. The 038 is being repaired but will be relegated to backup status as the 311 is faster until I reexamine the bar & chain on the 25 year old. February 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough and dependable I live out in the country and often have trees come down. This saw has handled all of them. Cuts great and has a lot of power. Paid for its self in one season of cutting. February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LIKE PUTTING A HOT KNIFE THOUGH WARM BUTTER I got my saw about 8 months ago when my last "homeowner" saw blew up. I was interested in the 291 but our local store was out of stock. came home with the 311 due to winter approaching I was not going to wait. I was most pleased. dropped 5 trees the first day. plenty of power easy maintenance, I even let it sit for 3 months and it fired no problem and ran like a champ. only down side I noticed was the weight, I did have to get used to that. but I love it. great saw great price looking at a 250 for the branches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Saw I have had this saw about 2 months now. It makes me want to cut wood for a living. Unfortunately, my wife demands I keep my day job because I wear out before the saw even gets warmed up and she like to spend a lot of money. This saw is so much fun to use, I can't wait for the weekend to get here so I can cut more firewood. It's easy to maintain, and has plenty of power. I love it! I've learned the hard way and bought 3 less expensive cheaper branded saws that didn't last or work as well. If you are in the market for a quality chainsaw, don't bother with other brands. This will be the last saw you ever need. February 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw! I bought my 311 two years ago and, because I sell firewood year-round, the saw is used 2-3 days per week. I love the power and dependability. Regardless of weather temp the saw starts. With a sharp chain, it cuts through large diameter logs like butter.My one and only complaint and the reason I gave the overall rating a four, is that the oil hole on the bar will clog with sawdust during use causing the chain to become dry. It is somewhat of a nuisance to have to stop work, remove the bar, and clean the oiler hole. January 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by cuts anything I bought this saw thing it was a bit pricey but I went for it any way. Now I wouldn't buy anything else. Well worth the money starts easy even when it's 10below. All the power you will need. I put a chisel chain on mine and you will cut some wood. I was also told buy the dealer it takes a 100hrs of run time to break it in so I don't think. I've even see the best of this saw yet. January 18, 2015
