Rated 5 out of 5 by MS192CE stands strong in the Stihl tradition of great saws My first Stihl over forty years ago was an 041, then an 041AV (which I used for thirty years). I bought a 026 Pro thirteen years ago, which is a great saw. Needed something lighter and that would start more easily, settling on the MS192CE (purchased July 2014). I recommend the 14" bar and the slightly larger chain. This will likely be a tool that I will hand off to my children when it's time.If you want quality, then plan on paying a bit more. Back in the day we burned wood for heat, now not. With 20 acres of woods out back there's always something to do. I've used Stihl saws all of my adult life, and I did that because they are well-designed and they hold up.. Enough said. July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw I recently purchased my first chainsaw. Ive always borrrowed my dads. Before I bought my saw I asked dad why not buy a saw from one of these other guys. I could get one for half the price. He looked at me and said go ahead if you only want half the saw. My dads had his stihls for years and never had one in the shop. Thats all I needed to know. Great products. Dependable. Thank you for making reliable tools. June 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Had it for a month...happy so far! Bought this to fell some smaller trees and trim up existing trees on my 84 acre property. Very happy with the way it starts and it runs like a champ. Burns fuel a little faster than I thought, but didn't know what to expect. Light enough to carry around and use for hours at a time. Looking forward to using it more this summer. June 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by just the thing I own a small farm and most of it is woods so i bought this saw to do most of the limbing .I also own a ms290 that i use for most of the bigger work.With most of the property being wooded there are always trees to be cut or trimmed. My wife does most of the smaller work and i do the big stuff.She really loves this saw because it is light weight,easy to start, and has good power for it`s size.I have owned stihl products for 4 years now and they have never let me down.They always start and perform well.With proper maintenance they should last a long time.I am looking at a pole saw that i will purchase next year, and possibly a ms362 saw. I am a true believer in stihl products.Keep up the good work stihl,you make a quality product. December 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great timber felling saw Second Stihl. First is a 280 and this is a MS192 C-E. I use the 192 to thin the stands of young Ponderosa pines. The 280 was just to heavy and became dangerous if I got the least bit tired. The new 192 allows me to go for at least an hour at a stretch, then I rest. I cut between 200-225 small (4" - 5" on the butt) pines in an hour. Then the real job - dragging them to a pile for spring time chipping. November 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great limbing saw I use an MS362 for felling and bucking large trees, and was using a Poulan Pro 42cc for limbing and small stuff. The Poulan weighs about the same as the MS362, and gets heavy after a long day of cutting. I researched the lightweight Stihl offerings and decided on the 192, and am amazed at how much cutting power Stihl put in such a light weight package.The saw is pricey, but if it holds up I'd say it's worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works just great I do many hours each week volunteer cutting up and burning in forest preserves. I drop and cut up trees from one inch to 16 inches. My big saw is a pro 261, but I was getting tired after 3 hours of swinging it around. So I got a 192 with lightweight polymer bar in April 2013. Works fabulously and I can go all day long without getting tired. Yes, the reduced weight does make a big difference. I work as cold as 20 degrees and as hot as 95 degrees. No problem starting and running in any temperature. Never had to move the adjustment screws. I restrict the cooling airflow at cold temperatures. My average cut is a 3" branch, which takes about 4 seconds, and so any saw is equally fast. The anti-vibration spring suspension is necessary for hours of cutting and it works great on the 192. My 14" bar length is just fine; maybe 16" would save me a little stooping down to limb a felled tree. The air filter is on the cheap side, but I've had no problems. The clutch is on the OUTSIDE of the sprocket - it looks weird but it works flawlessly. The easy-start is not necessary, but has no drawbacks either. Like any small saw, the 192 uses less gas and oil per cut because the chain is narrower. I haven't used my 261 since I got my 192. August 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better then expected I bought a 251 C BE and found it incredibly easy to use with plenty of power. I wanted a back up saw as it's good to have a second one in case you get yours wedged. Recently used the 192 for F3 tornado damage. Had both saws going but used the 192 more due to weight. What a saw. Performed great for topping fallen trees and cutting stumps. You can do most jobs with this light saw unless you are a Professional landscaper, then go with heavy duty Stihl. The gas and oil caps can be a challenge. Look at how they are placed before you take them off, line them up and you will be good to go. Ran several tanks of gas through the saw on this job. Cut for about four hours. The neighbor I was helping had a cheap saw, didn't perform. I pulled up with my two Stihl saws and we got busy. He is bigger then me but will be buying the 192 soon. He was impressed at how well it ran. Great saw for casual user. I use mine 4 or 5 times a year for bigger jobs. Use it on my recreational farm for clean up as needed too. June 3, 2013
