Rated 5 out of 5 by A true working tool Though I am a suburban homeowner, i live next to a county park and also have lots of trees. This saw blows right through them and has been a great starter saw. This product is so good I plan on buying an in tree saw as well as a farm/ranch class saw for my hunting land. Very very very pleased at reliability, power, and consistency! Thanks Stihl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent saw, used for trimming, felling. I've owned this saw for more than 10 years and have never had a problem with it. The saw is used several times a year, may sit in the case for months, but always starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull, and can and will work all day. I have felled up to 24" diameter trees with this saw (14" bar). The light weight and balance are excellent and I've had this saw high up in a tree many times. April 16, 2014

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).
