Rated 5 out of 5 by stihl rocks This was my 3rd chain saw, the way and has been taking me how good it still was, as soon as I got it to my backyard I had 4hrs worth of cutting done in about less than 1 hr, everything seemed to cut so effortlessly, never thought using a chanisaw can be this much fun. trimmed all the branches over my 2.5acre backyard in no time, had to get a pole saw afterward and i kept going back over and over again for one tool after another made by Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best bang for my buck I have owned many chain saws in the past and this MS 170 is by far the best saw I have owned. Price and weight were the drawing factors in buying this saw.. Plus having a local dealer close with a great service department is great. Would I buy again, yes.. to anyone needing a great saw.. May 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fraction more for a superior saw Thinking about a cheap saw? for a fraction more, this saw is the way to go. Cheap electric saw lack power. More expensive big box store brand is nice for the first few use. MS170? Small, compact, enough power for most around the house job.I have used a few different chainsaw in the past, this one is by far the best compact saw I have used. Use the Stihl fuel mix, read the instruction thoroughly, this guy starts right up. Used it to cut up a bunch of hard oak for 3 hrs, never missed a beat.Take advantage of the dealer day, get one of these. Must have! May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by alsome chain saw for small money this is a wonderful beginner saw. It can do what most home need to maintain there property, you can cut fire wood, trim trees, fell trees, great all around saw one think it could use a little tiny bit more power but it does fine the way it is May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Second MS 170 Also Great! In 2012, I wrote the first review on the MS170 as Yolod46. After four years of very good service it had reached the end of its life. I bought a new MS170 two weeks ago. It is like the first one being a strong "work horse" here on the farm and helping out at rural cemeteries. May 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Impressive .. I just purchased the MS170. I needed a smaller saw, and order mine with 14 in bar. Gone thru two tanks of fuel cutting 1 to 8 in dia wood.This machine is incredible ! Don' tlet the small engine and chain teeth be deceiving.Hate to use this term but it 'cut like butter' ! Time will tell on reliability. May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, ample power, starts well I had a larger saw before of a different brand. That thing was driving me nuts! Chain always loose or falling off. I use a saw occasionally for tree trunks up to 16" and branches. I saw a friend with a Stihl and admired how it started and cut. I was concerned when the dealer showed me the smallest saw in the line, a 170. I have used it now for 2 days and the saw is everything I want. Light, enough power, a good starter. I doubt the chain mechanism is going to cause me problems because it is made differently and better. Satisfied now and hoping for many years of use. May 3, 2016
