Rated 5 out of 5 by Small Powerhouse I own the MS180C with a 16" bar. It's my first saw. I purchased it to clean up storm damage or go after some firewood if i ever need to. Recently I had been doing some volunteer work for a bike path. I ran it hard for a week. 3 hours worth of work with the 180 will keep a 4 man crew with a 3pt tractor PTO chipper busy for an 8hr day. Its powerful enough to do a good plunge cut, regardless if the tree is 5" or 15". Stihl is used by alot of construction companies and after using this saw, frankly i wont own anything other then a stihl chainsaw. This particular model will go above and beyond what a homeowner would need. Its well worth every dime. The best advice i can give to future owners is to not run the saw out of gas, it takes some time for the gas to pick up, but once it does you will be back cutting like there is no tomorrow once again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MS180 vs my 30yr old yellow saw This is my 1st Stihl chainsaw.I have used my yellow saws now for over 30 years, a 20in bar 61CC. Good saws, I was cutting 6-8 cords of wood per year for heating in Michigan and Alaska. I now live in Georgia and don't heat with wood but I still cut a tree a year for firewood. I'm 62 and my 30 yr old chainsaws and I just don't have the energy we use too. I was looking for a replacement for those heavy cantankerous saws. I went on the internet for reviews and Stihl seemed to have the least bad reviews. This past weekend I cut down a 70yr old 24 inch oak tree with my MS180 with 16in bar. It did the job. The easy start system was great. An 18in bar or longer would have been a little easier felling the tree but would have been awkward cutting up the limbs. I was impressed with this little saw. I hope that it will last me 30yr like my yellow saw. The MS180 used very little gas. It was very easy to handle. It was a little cantankerous starting when hot but I'll figure out it's trick to start it before too long. Very easy to pull with the Easy Start system, it really saves my arm.. As a fisherman would say...It's a Keeper. March 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by A good saw when it runs but it has a flaw in my opinion I bought this saw a couple of years ago and it worked great until the carb filled with saw dust. Took the carb off tried in vane to get the air cleaner, which is just a piece of felt, to stay put and it filled the carb with saw dust again. Took it to the dealer and was told the air cleaner was revamped and stiffened up on this model so it would stay in place. After several hours of running this winter cutting firewood, the carb filled with saw dust again. The saw runs great as long as the carb is clean but I'm really tired of taking it off to clean it. The air filter is just a poor design. March 1, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Weight to power ratio very good. Replaced a larger saw with this model. Love the saw and the way you can keep the chain tight without wrenches. Starts easy and runs great. Use for firewood and cleaning fence rows or downed trees. It des a great job. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product; easy to start, runs smoothly. I have owned many chainsaws in the last fifty years, but this is the most efficient, smooth running and fast cutting chainsaw of any I have ever owned. It is light weight enough for me to handle at age 80 February 12, 2015
