Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet machine I've been using Homelite saws for 20 years.... now that I bought a Stihl, I would never buy anything but Stihl. They are the Cadillac of chainsaws. They are expensive, but worth every penny. I bought one last week, my first Stihl.... the Farm Boss. And bought another one this week. Best saw you can buy!!!! If your gonna buy a saw... buy a Stihl. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!! April 28, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuttin Fool Bought this for my wife's birthday. I know what you all are thinking but that's what she wanted. SHE LOVE'S IT. Light weight, starts easy and is a cuttin fool. I even like to run it over my heavier chain saw. April 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ok saw This saw seems to work ok for the size. The main problem with this saw is the electronic carburetor. Being a smaller saw used for small jobs you never have the throttle continuously maxed out, this the carburetor electronically adjust when it's not needed. Can make it hard for restarting after refueling and sometimes keeping running. When you do get it started try to keep the RPM s at a constant. Kind of a pain in the butt I know trust me. In my opinion they should stick with how they were before, less issues and better fuel economy if you ask me. April 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good first saw for firewood This is a pretty good little saw. The power & size are what they need to be to cut firewood for a bbq pit & firepit plus yard maintenance. Fill a saw toolbox in your garage and a go box with tools, toss some camping-type fuel bottles / oil / second chain in your go box, and you are good to go. Hate the scrench, went with dedicated tools instead. Replaced front chain tensioner with side tensioner from MS250. April 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and reliable Tis is the first saw I utilize, and reach for. Capable of cuttung its full 16 inches, I bought my first one five years ago, cut a ton of firewood by clearing around the fields. Excellent power to weight ratio. Use 90 octane straight unleaded gas, and the synthetic Stihl 2 cycle oil. April 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw When it comes time to use it there's no doubt it's going to be ready. Nobody wants to have to work on something before using it and Stihl gives you quality products. April 13, 2016
