Rated 4 out of 5 by Great small saw If you need a big saw, buy a big saw. This is great for small jobs. the 170 is light, nimble and fast for its size. I have never seen this level of quality in this size saw at this price in any of the big box brands. The best part is it is a Stihl so I know that the dealer and the manufacturer stand behind it.My only complaints are the front tensioner, small fuel tank and the non adjustable carb. That being said, it is worth every penny. May 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Went in to buy this little saw, I was greeted with the owner of the still dealer. Told him I wanted to purchase this 170 stilhl, he asked the size of the wood I would be cutting. I had a tree that fell down, it was 16 in wide at the base. He tried to sell me the 271, because the 170 would not be big enough. Well I am glad I didn't waste my money on the bigger saw, it buzzed through that big tree with no problems. Do not buy a bigger saw than you need, it's just a waste of money. Highly recommend this saw if you are not cutting anything bigger. Check out you tube before you buy, you will see for yourself what this little saw is capable of. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Starts every time...and lightweight This is a great entry level saw that that packs a punch. Much more reliable than any other saw I've owned. Starts every time, and extremely lightweight and easy to handle. Perfect for 'blow down' trees at the hunting camp. Super dependable and perfect for trimming any tree in my yard. If the commercial yard folks in my neighborhood all use Stihl....suspect it's good enough for me. May 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good saw for around the house. This saw is a great saw for home use. I am use this saw for cutting up almond trees. Very good saw. It came with a 16 inch bar, I but a 14 inch bar and thicker chain. I found that the saw is a little underpowered for the 16 inch bar (for what I'm doing). This saw works great for cutting smaller limbs off of trees. Limbs greater than 8 inches and it has to work. For the price, you just can't beat it. May 13, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Thought it would be better Poor quality...I bought this saw brand new and after two week it wouldn't start. I took it into the dealer for repair and haven't got it back yet. This was a disappointment because I always heard stihl made a quality saw. Maybe I got a lemon but it won't happen again. May 11, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I haveowned Stihl Saws for 40 years I bought this saw so I could have a light weight saw for trimming and sawing smaller limbs and trees as I have gotten older.Since I have bought this saw, I have found it to be the worst Stihl saw by far. Every time I go to use it, is seems not to work right. It does not start or has a problem. The other stihl saws and trimmers I have have been excellent, but not this one. It is almost like it is made by a different company. I have NEVER been happy with it. I have used it so little because it never works right that it is as new. I hate this saw. May 11, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by its my 3rd Stihl and it's just as powerful as my older ones I have 2 older Stihl saws, one that is at least 20 years old. They both still get the job done. When I saw this new 170 model for the price I paid, i thought maybe they were cheapening up the saw and its integity. Not a chance. I used it today around the farm and it's every bit the saw as the others. There isn't another saw on the market that I would choose over the Stihl brand. April 24, 2015
