Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprised me I burned up my 20in. Brand x saw and was forced to use my MS170 for a large project. I had resigned myself that I would run this little saw into the ground. After a week of industrial work and about 8 cords of oak she still runs like the day I bought the saw. Really shocked me! I had several hands using the saw and expected the worst. Great saw and great price, out worked my commercial saw! January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome saw for the money I needed a saw for trimming trees amd cutting some firewood. I haven't had to cut anything more than 8" in diameter, but I'm sure it would. It's nevsr failed to start. I was cleaning up my fs45 trimmer earlier and decided to run the chainsaw since I hadn't even started it in a year. It took 4 or 5 pulls and it roared to life. I let it warm up and turned it off. Pulled the rope and started up on first pull. January 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little saw I have stihl 041 and just bought ms 461 but use my ms170 a lot for small jobs, I have had it for several years and no problems. For the money you can't go wrong December 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LIGHT AND VERY CAPABLE! I now own 2 of these units, and I can tell you first hand, they are powerful little saws, and a insanely great price. Perfect for clean up jobs and I've even used them to cut down some pretty good size oak trees. Perfect all around saw. I HIGHLY RECOMMEMD THIS! December 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for what it is. For what it is (a lightweight limber) for homeowners, this is an excellent saw. It has plenty of power for the job. The fuel mix ratio could be on the unit as well as starting instructions to make it more homeowner friendly. The filter is my only design concern. For a few cents more, a better filter could have been used that would better protect the engine. December 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good power for a light saw Great light saw for the price . I do feel the 16" bar is a little much for the power but does give the saw a good balance feel . Purchased it to replace an old 015 with no av. Av on this model is spring mounted not rubber appears well built. Only short coming is the new 1/4 turn fuel and oil caps the theary is nice no screw driver needed but saw dust accumulates in groove around the cap and falls in tank when opened. My solution is, I keep a can of carb cleaner in my saw tool box a couple quick blasts and were good. Other than that first month started on 2-3 pulls now it takes sometimes 10 but better than the old 015 sometimes 30 pulls but for the price I don't think you can find a nicer saw. November 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good cutting I bought thid for a extra saw because I'm 66 years old, and it's hard for me to handle a 20" bar saw or a 24" bar saw. this is perfect for weight and value. November 21, 2015
