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 1 out of 5 by Hard Starting Have numerous Stihl products and find this to be an anomaly. Has always been hard to start. When it does run, it has gobs of power and makes you the MAN in the neighborhood for that day. However, I still prefer to use my 25 years old 028 Super because I can get it starts easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw Great saw, had it about a year, full time logging and cordwood, saws seen well over 200 cord now and never had an issue with it. February 1, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Mid Range Saw I own many chainsaws and I am completely happy with this saw. The time between refueling is longer than my MS 291. That alone make s it my first choice of saws to grab. Stock options only provide for a 16 or 20 inch bar length. But you can get after market bars and chains up to 36" I have not gotten one yet but I believe it would have enough power to push it. December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extreme Versatility! I have had my MS311 for a few months now. I have used it for a felling saw, to a limber, and everything in between with zero fight. Best saw I have owned! I intend to have many more Stihl additions to my tools. December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 100% an excellent chainsaw I bought the Stihl MS 311 for my lawn and landscape business it does the job just fine I found a lot of Stihl products they're always very good at their job I've used lots of brands and I recommend Stink 100%. Please ignore the negative reviews nine times out of ten they are misusing the product the other time maybe there's a factory defect which if you're buying from an authorized dealer with the warranty by the pack of oil and get 4 years instead of 2 and you won't have any problems December 9, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very powerful saw the 25% of the time that it actually will start. Since new, purchased in 2011, will not reliably start. Have had it in for service at least yearly without relief. December 2, 2015
