Rated 4 out of 5 by Cheap Work Horse I have spent a lot of time with this little saw and it may be the smallest and cheapest for the occasional use but let me tell you I have abused this little saw on some very big limbs and some trunks. Some limbs were over 20 inches in diameter and I just took my time and let the saw work. On the big stuff it will not be a speed demon but it you use a smaller saw on large timber it will make you a better operator because you have think what the best way to complete the cut is. This saw is light; I can use it overhead safely while reaching out for smaller branches while in a bucket or ladder. I can carry this saw by foot way out in the field on fence lines and deep into the timber to hang tree stands and not worry about it getting heavy and wearing me out. Is a bigger more powerful saw needed? Sure! But for those smaller jobs why lug around a giant when you can easily use this little work horse to prune, de-brush, trim, etc… don’t get more wrong I love my 044 for the biggest wood but 80% of the time I use the MS170, lighter and cheaper to operate. Plus this saw is a great one to teach a new person to use without much fear of intimidation and kickbacks. If it gets stolen or lost your only out a couple hundred bucks instead of a $1000 like some other saws. I’m sure the pro model in this size is better yet but the MS170 has proven to be durable enough for what I use it for. Since 2007 I have only had to have it fixed twice at the dealer and one of those was only a tune up. April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great saw this chain saw is the best saw I ever bought .it has power cuts great and you cant beat the price.very easy to use April 7, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Starts as easy as I've ever seen, but performance is poor. The chain on this item is way too fragile. Also, nobody seems to stock a .043 inch replacement - for obvious reasons. This saw should not be sold with the narrow chain - I can't imagine what the "thinking" was behind this. My chain became so dull it was unusable after about half an hour cutting soft wood (willow).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough little chainsaw I just bought a MS170 to do some fairly major cleanup on my property. Sure, you can get a bigger, more powerful saw but if all you need is a saw to take care of fallen limbs a couple of times a year....this is it. It went through a truckload of 6" to 8" hardwood without a hitch. I highly recommend this little monster. April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great First Saw Let me start by saying that I do not claim to be an expert on chain saws. I'm an occasional user who uses a chain saw to clear fence line, cut up storm damage, and cut through roofs and walls at work (I'm a firefighter). So I do know how to use a saw. My only reference have been Stihl, E**o, and Hus*****a. All good saws. This is the first chain saw that I've owned and I am very pleased. I spent the entire day clearing fence line on my family's property. Mostly trees 4-8" thick with the occasional 10 inch tree. This saw cut through them like a hot knife through butter. I cannot say enough good things about the saw, it did exactly as it was supposed to. I am a Stihl fan for life. I plan on making this saw last forever. Don't let the small size fool you. It will do everything you ask of it and ask for more. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Stihl Chainsaw, very happy with the purchase This is the best chainsaw I have ever own, it is lightweigh and yet more than enough power to cut most of the trees and logs around my backyard. I've previously owned a McCulloch chainsaw, the MS-170 performs better in terms of ease of use, design, cutting performance and build quality. I have no hesitate to recommend this chainsaw to anyone, it is very good value. I also own a BG-56 blower, can't fault the build quality and performance from Sthil. March 30, 2014
