Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Light weight and easy to use, lots of power Love this chain saw. Easy to use, light enough, but lots of cutting power..Make sure you read the manual and know how to start this saw. That willfrustrate you if you do not know what you are doing. It is a wonderfulproduct. June 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very low power. Regular construction. Its not better than any low power electric chainsaws. Chain has to be sharpen withing a single use. First time I use it to cut a 10 inch log I found oil in the air filter and the bolt that hold the bar got loose from the body of the saw. I had to take it out, and hold it with pliers to release the nut that holds the bar. June 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall great saw! Very happy with puchase! Used the saw right after I got home from purchasing it. Started with one pull and was off and running! Very reliable and the easy start is a plus! Seems very well built and reliable (as with all Stihl products I've used). The 16" bar is perfect for small trimming and cutting down medium sized trees. I decided on the MS 171 vs the MS 170 due to the upgraded features and was well worth the extra $20. Light, easy to control and enough power to get the job done. June 15, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Saw I almost didn't buy this saw because of some of the reviews I read. It would have been a big mistake I absolutely love this saw. May 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome A great step up from the "big home center" stuff. Light weight, easy to use, and cuts like a pro. For around the house and barn, this saw is perfect. #I don't cut firewood# It's amazing how much more quality you get for just a few more dollars! You will not regret purchasing this one. Best saw I have ever used. April 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Little Saw I really like the MS171. It is light and cuts fast for such a small saw. I cut firewood for myself and people in the neighborhood when they need help. The MS171 is the best saw for limbs I have ever used. I run Stihl MotoMix in it (jet fuel for saws) and let it fly. I also have a MS261, MS362CM, and the MS441 Magnum---all great saws. Awesome job Stihl! March 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price & power What a great saw, works great for small jobs and after I use my MS362 for a take down for cleaning off branches and small logs. Put a 12" bar and go up in size of chain and this saw really rips!Also the side chain adjust is worth the upgrade alone over the MS170 February 12, 2015
