Rated 5 out of 5 by Great chainsaw I've had a Polar for a few years, but this Stihl 180 is great. I used it for a few hours (for the first time) and it was so easy to handle. Starting was a breeze as well. I would definitely recommend it. Keith H. April 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Pull cord is week Cut wood for a day at my Father in laws.The next time I go to use it the pull cord is broke. Put a stronger cord on. Just fell like it should last longer than a day. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best saw I've ever owned Have cut firewood most of my life and thought all saws were pretty much the same. Not so! April 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Burnt up after 4 months In 4 months, the clutch burnt up....as you can guess, I was disappointed as I was under the impression Stihl chainsaws were the best. I didn't even use it that much, I probably cut down less than 20 3" to 12" diameter trees. And I take care of my stuff. Anyways, its in the shop and we will see how long it lasts after it gets back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by First Chain Saw This is my first chain saw and rather than go to a big box store to buy one off the shelf (with little or no assistance), I gave my local lawn and garden equipment dealer a try and boy am I glad I did. I thought I knew what I wanted but the sales person quickly guided me to the STIHL 180 for a lightweight, easy to use and maintain solution to help me manage a heavily wooded quarter acre lot behind my house. The 180 has been very well suited for removing dead or fallen trees and performing maintenance on the live trees. I've used it weekly for a couple of months with no problems. The easy start is fantastic. I had no experience with chain saws before this purchase and will definitely look to STIHL when I look to make future purchases of outdoor equipment. April 16, 2014

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
