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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BUZZ SAW Man, this saw has power. Especially coming from a smaller competitor saw.I had a large pine tree fall and my original saw would not cut thru the tree without bogging. I purchased the MS 311 just for this tree and was totally amazed at the power. It cut thru like butter and I had the tree cut into small pieces in a matter of minutes. May 11, 2014
