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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for me Bought me a 170, keep using factory parts & Ez start I let run about 30 second without throttle not a problem,,works awsome for what I need done... November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice saw for limbing I have a 60cc saw for blocking but needed something smaller and lighter for the small stuff. My local dealer tuned it, I live at 10,000ft, and swapped out the chain for something more aggressive (Pico) and all works fine.Not something I would use for cutting up logs but it is not sold to do that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Failed after 10 to 15 hours. My MS170 failed after 10 to 15 hours of usage. After owning this saw for 14 months it stopped running. Piston sized due to seal leaking, creating a too lean condition.This is the second time I have tried to post this. November 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product for intended use, at great price point I recently purchased the MS-170 and put it to work for a full day of tree felling and bucking. This is my first chainsaw purchase and use it primarily for around the house maintence and a couple days a year cutting up firewood for use in my woodburner stove. I burn less than a cord a year, so the saw is not used heavily and was looking for a saw that could do most things pretty well. I burned through about 5 tanks of gas and the saw performed very well. It started well (following the dealers starting instructions), it ran well, and cut great. A few times it was cutting large dense trees and bogged down slightly, but that is to be expected whn pushing the limits of the saw. For a lot more money you could get a more powerful one, but for the price and a quality name like Stihl I dont hink you can go wrong with this model. I am more than satisfied with the performance and cost of the MS-170. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start, light weight Best tool I have ever bought. Light weight, easy to start and cuts big or small trees with ease! November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good lightweight saw. I've had mine for three years, it has never failed to start (you need to follow the instructions), needs minimal maintenance and does a fine job as a homeowner saw. I like that local dealers provide service and have parts in stock. November 1, 2015
