Rated 5 out of 5 Great Saw I bought my MS 170 today, took it home and knocked down two trees. The saw performed perfectly! It's easy to start, cuts through the tree like a hot knife through butter. I'm impressed, and very satisfied with my purchase. February 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great saw. I use firewood to heat two homes. I use my two 170s to cut up anything under about 12 inches. I like using the small saws to do most of my cutting because they are lighter, use less fuel and if I hit an old nail or barbed wire it's not a big deal. Just grab the other saw or grab a file. Less teeth that are quicker to sharpen. If I hit a nail with my big saws I cry a little. They are very reliable and I have had no issues with them other than one leaks a little oil when not in use. I can say that I don't baby them either. Toss them around and have had them fall off the truck going down the trails more than once. So even under a lot of abuse they still perform. Great saws. Good price. February 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good saw for small prjects The saw performs well for clearing overburden around my 20 acres. I would recommend this for anyone who needs an easy to use small project saw. My only complaint is that the chain does not keep an edge for very long so I recommend having at least two extra chains when working with it. February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by one awsome saw well worth the amount I paid, I have had cheap saws and you definitely get what you pay for. February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw for the value I bought the MS 170 because I needed a chainsaw but I don't have the need or the money to spare to by a MS 291 or bigger. I wanted a Stihl chainsaw because they work well and last forever. The MS 170 is a great saw for the person on a budget but still needs to get things done! I have taken 3 trees down that were 18" to 30" in diameter. The MS 170 did awesome for only being 1.7HP! This saw makes you work smart not hard. Plan your cuts and let the saw do the work and you won't have any issues. With that being said, If I was going to cut firewood every year or down trees on a regular basis then you should save up and get a 291 or bigger, but if your a home owner that needs a saw to use once in awhile then the MS 170 is for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Great saw once you get it started. I bought a Stihl because I wanted a saw I could depend on to get the job done. The first time I tried to cold start the saw it took me 30 minutes of yanking the cord to get it going. I want a saw that starts easily. Once it was up and going it cut through small trees and logs with ease. Great saw once it is running. Warm or hot it starts on first pull. Otherwise, well, plan on spending some serious time yanking that cord. What a pain. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Very handy saw. This is not my first (or only) chain saw. I've been trimming trees with branches up to nine inch without a problem. I appreciate the light weight. It runs like a Stihl, and starts like a Stihl. A great value at the price you can pick this up for. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lawnman1963 I needed a small saw for small jobs around the house. This saw is perfect and starts very good for a Stihl chainsaw. February 12, 2015
