Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease if use I bought this chainsaw after doing lots of research and reviews. I am a disabled 50+ woman. I had to remove a tree causing structural damage. For less than what it cost to hire a tree service, I bought the saw. It cut my 12 inch thick eucalyptus like a warm knife through butter. I was able to fell the tree within inches of my projected target landing spot. July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw Awesome saw. Light weight easy to start no primer bulb to deal with very responsive with plenty of power. Cut up a mountain pile of mesquit and oak like it was nothing. Highly recommended July 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's a light weight saw. I run this saw 1 and a half 2 2 tanks of gas and let it sit for 30 minutes and it will not keep running it will start and idle but when you give it the throttle it just dies I've had it in once and they couldn't find nothing wrong I'm taking it back in again the second time I'm not happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw- Super Dependable My MS170 saw is always reliable. It starts easy everytime, is lightweight and tough. I have owned and used other saws over the years but after using a Stihl for a year now, I am sold. These saws live up to their solid customer reviews. Highly recommend. July 12, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by great saw but ! saw does not run when it warms up, took it in to a deal for repair and they claim that the cylinder damaged from saw dust very expensive to repair. the auir filter was and has always been on the saw don't understand how a brand name saw would end up with this problem. anyway saw is no good to me and I am just a homeowner doing light cutting around the yard. seems like a design fault but its the buyers problem. plan to go with another brand liked the saw but the out come is now the saw is junk, not happy July 11, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by More power and performance than expected at entry level Since buying my 1st Stihl (MS 250) saw I have been happily impressed with the brand and have purchased other items. The MS 170 has been on my radar to replace an aging big box store smaller saw that has become unreliable. Recent wind storms dropped a large maple in my yard with a large amount of limbs and I had the perfect excuse to get a new smaller saw.Chain speed is high and the stock bar/chain is pretty narrow. This allows a high cutting rate without bogging down and overall impressive performance. Light weight makes the task of cleaning up a large tree much easier. By the time I was done cleaning up the yard it was clear that I made the right choice.Its not often you get any deals from Stihl but the recent $20.00 price drop made this a great buy. June 28, 2016
