Rated 5 out of 5 by It has done every task with much more ease than other brands I have used The more I use it the more I love it. If this saw was invented 150 years ago Michigan trees would be extinct. October 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trail Saw This is the best Trail saw I've ever used. I have the 12" bar and carry it in my builders pack.Even riding in on the bicycle ,I can't tell it's there and in a pinch I've cut oak logs over 30" out of the trail.I've used it regularly for over 2 years without any trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product, easy to use. I purchased this saw when I lost a large limb from one of my trees. The dealer walked me through the workings of the saw. Took it home and it fired up and worked as designed. I have since used it a couple other times for similar work and it has worked great. I am very pleased with this saw and will recommend it to anyone who asks. October 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good chainsaw, but leaks chain oil. The first MS 170 I bought, all the chain oil leaked out in three days. The dealer happily exchanged it. The second MS 170 also leaks chain oil, but at a slower rate. I like the saw. It handles well and has good balance. When not in use, what a mess it leaves! September 23, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good saw for around the backyard Find the saw hard to start from cold...even the dealer I bought it from, had to tune it up a little. It still is not easy to get it idling from cold.Good saw for power on smaller trees. Bigger hardwood trees it doesn't have the mustard. September 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well designed and very reliable This is a very well made chain saw. It is very easy to adjust the bar/chain tension and has never once failed to start or continuously run. I opted to also purchase the carrying case, which keeps the saw in good running condition. September 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw This saw is great. I've been cutting oak and eucalyptus and it buzzes right through. The saw starts very easily, and is very light. One handing is no problem. I am very happy with the MS 170. It is loud, so I'm happy with ear protection. September 12, 2014
