Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed in Stihl, this was my first It is very difficult to start and the chain jumps the drive sprocket. I don’t like it and would not recommend it. July 28, 2014

Rated 1 out of 5 by Issues from first start I started the saw and was able to cut throw one small tree and then it would stop running whenever it was idling. I returned it to the ACE Hardware and Stihl worked on it and adjusted the carborator. I picked it up from the store and was told it was now running fine and that I need to make sure to clean it prior to every use even though it was never even used prior. I was unable to start it at the store but was promised it is running fine. I took it home and continually tried to start it but couldn't even get it to start after the modification. I'm going to take it back to the store again. I was advised from the ACE store owner that it is non-returnable and non refundable. I'm hoping Stihl will come through on this and back up the reputation of their product that I thought they had! July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best light saw ever I have had my MS170 16" for about six months now. Much nice to use than the farm boss on small things and easier to maneuver than the HT65.USE 92 octane. DON'T buy cheap oil. 10% ethanol isn't great, 20% does not allow the oil to stay mixed in the fuel, it will settle out.Decibel level is good (I still wear ear plugs), power is great, weight is perfect, balance is great, fuel consumption good. Starting is easy, typical Stihl, two pulls on full choke, third burps, move to half and it fires up on fourth pull.It is such a great general purpose saw two friends that borrowed it bought one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by One thing missing I just wish it would of come with the log grabber teeth by the chain July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little chainsaw Bought this chainsaw about a month ago. Used it a few times in my backyard to bring down 5-6 small trees but loaned it to a friend, who works for a landscaper. He's used it on a couple of jobs and loved it. He told me that the saw ran all day without any problems what so ever. It was the most dependable saw he used.Considering what a similar amount of money buys you at the "big stores", this chainsaw is a bargain. July 17, 2014
