Rated 1 out of 5 by Steer clear Saw leaked oil from day one. More importantly the handle is a very poor design. After a drop to the ground from less than two feet, the handle broke in two on the underside of the saw. The saw is now completely unusable and the entire handle has to be replaced which requires a near total disassembly and reassembly of the saw. It's cheaper for me to buy a new saw that get the repairs. Needless to say, my new saw will NOT be a STIHL. May 11, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Do not buy This is the worst saw I've owned it leaked bar oil from day 1 then it started 2 not want to run well after 2 years of cussing it I smashed it it's junk do not buy it April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The 211 is a fine homeowner saw, recommended. My larger older Stihl 290 got the ethanol blues half way through limbing a 64' spruce tree i had felled. Took it to the dealer and it needs a new carburetor which has to be ordered. Meanwhile, I wanted to finish limbing, bucking and trucking the tree to the dump. Being 70 , a smaller saw seemed appropriate so got the 211 on the dealer's recommendation. It cut through the spruce's trunk like butter and is easy to use for limbing since it is relatively light. Mine starts 3rd pull every time when cold and usually 1st pull when warm. An impressive small saw. April 25, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pass on this one Wouldn't waist your money. Leaks chain bar oil while just sitting and will very difficult to start. Buyer Beware.. April 18, 2016
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
