Rated 5 out of 5 by Great trim saw replaced my MS180 I sold my MS 180 by accident and missed having a handy trim saw. The MS 170 is Stihls entry level saw but, it cuts as good as my old MS 180. Easy to start, light weight, and cuts fast. The traditional chain tensioning system on this saw is actually a great feature holds the bar and chain tight better than the quick tensioning system on other saws. The MS 170 compliments my MS 261CM perfectly and they compliment my 70cc saw. Great small saw for a three saw plan. Hurry up and get one before they stop making them. January 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by More of a workhorse than expected... We used one of these at my farm this summer and fall to cut exotic bush honeysuckle and autumn olive. These can be tough to cut and up to 4" in diameter. We ran the MS 170 all day for many, many days in a row and it never missed a beat. Great saw - - light in weight but not in performance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good saw This saw is easy to start, runs great, and is very good for cutting brush and firewood up to 14''. It's lightweight and the chain brake stops the chain very fast. January 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Still early on, but so far so good Purchased this saw for a winter camping trip. Can't give it all fives so early in the game. Started easy every time even at 10 to 20 degree outside temps. Lots of bang for the buck. Very light weight great saw for the whole family. Nice features for a basic saw. Easy to tighten the chain.
