Rated 5 out of 5 by Likely as good as you can get in this class Okay, this is one of only two chainsaws I have owned. The other was also a Stihl, an ancient one I got at a yard sale. I am a homeowner in Maine with a moderate income. This means owning a decent saw is pretty close to mandatory. I use my saw to cut fire wood and sometimes to clean up after storms (I'm on the coast. The first thing I want to say is that it absolutely always starts easily. It took me about 20 min to get the hang of adjusting the chain tension and now I could do it in my sleep. The manual is very clear on maintenance and safety and their are instructional videos on You tbe is saw, produced by the company. Every thing I have required of this saw it has delivered without a hitch. I have even used it to cut up sections of a really big maple, and it performed like a trooper . The only thing I could possibly criticize is that there is nothing to stop you from accelerating the machine while the chain brake is engaged which could overheat the clutch. That said, I think that it stomps all over other options in its price range. March 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A tough little chainsaw This saw handles just about every need a non-pro might encounter. The best features are that it's lightweight, easy to use and easy to maintain. Best chainsaw I've owned. March 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Good while it lasted Used this saw for less than a year when the piston blew apart destroying the engine. Never used anything other than Stihl oil and new gas in it and it didn't make it a year under light to maybe normal usage. Used the saw mostly for trimming and cutting smaller trees. What a shame too, it was a good saw with plenty of power for my use. February 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw but chain smokes Great saw but chain smokes after full cutting. I use winter blend bar oil all year that fixed the problem. Sthil needs to put adj oiler on all saws or an extra oil button like they use to. Quick chain adj is hard to open and use. February 22, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fairly well designed chain saw A good reliable chainsaw. Starts every time(I only use premium, non-alcohol fuel). I especially like the feature of the tool-less, Quick Chain Adjuster. It allows for quick, easy adjustment of chain tension prior to starting(cold bar), loosening of chain after the bar warms up from use and when storing. One recommendation I would make to Stihl would be to include inch markings on the top of plastic body case for firewood length beside the felling line site all ready there. Because the Stihl chainsaws can use different length bars, the inch markings would start at zero at the bar end of the saw and move up toward the handle end. Another suggestion would be to have air filter material above each of the fuel & oil tank vent valves to prevent clogging or vent valves sticking open from wood chips/dust that settles in that area during use. I had a fuel tank leaking, in certain chainsaw positions, at the vent because the vent valve stuck open from a wood chip lodged inside the valve. February 19, 2014
