Rated 1 out of 5 by No power Never will I buy another stihl. I have owned 6 saws from this company that's it. January 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw but leaks chain oil Great saw all around BUT leaks all the oil out of the reservoir when sitting. Had it back to dealer 3x and he couldn't fix it - claims it is normal. Would not by any product from Wes Stauffer in Ephrata again as he had a real attitude about it December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome little saw anyone who uses it wants to buy it I have had my 211 for 4 years now and use it for everything, because as nice as it is to have a big saw I just hate lugging it around all day. My 211 did have the oil leak but it was fixed under warranty never leaked a drop since. As for the hard starts mine starts every time no matter what but my dealer told me these steps to get it to start every time.1-full throttle/full choke pull till it hits2- once it hits move it to half throttle/ usually within the next two pullsWith that method I have never pulled more than 5 or 6 times to start my saw hope that helps September 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cant beat the price. Some people may not know how to store saws with caps on properly etc, this saw has not leaked ounces in storage, it runs great, cranks first few pulls (factory rich for break in) I mean come on. Actually has decent power on the stock power head with a 18" bar September 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Leaks Like a Sieve We bought the MS211 as a second chainsaw based on the dealer's recommendation. After three uses, couldn't get it started. But the worst part is the thing LEAKS ALL THE OIL OUT OF IT AS IT SETS IN STORAGE! I don't mean a few drops from the chain. The whole oil reservoir leaks out onto the floor in a couple of weeks. Others have complained about this problem, so beware. July 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible saw and not dependable I got this chainsaw brand new and it isn't wort the plastic box it came in. Will not start unless pulled 20 times. Barely runs when working. Stalls on logs bigger then 8 inches. My first Stihl product and my last. Bought a $120 chainsaw and it is much better and reliable. June 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by best saw for the size Purchased this saw at the age of 11 years old for my first saw until i was big enough for a larger saw. I'm 16 now and i can say that this saw has been absolutely AWESOME, its cut everything I have put in front of it and never once given up on me. I cut about 4 cords of wood a year to heat my house and sense i was 11 this thing has cut all 4 cords for 5 years and probably keep it going for another 5 April 29, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by MS 211 long time owner Good light little saw,Made cheap and if you leave oil in saw it will leak all out in case. Other than being little cold blooded it does the little jobs. April 12, 2015
