Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent little saw I find this saw a little beauty starting not a problem I think the people who can't start this saw maybe a little soft they should stick to electric maybe ..Plenty of power really well balanced too. . July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite saw!!! This saw starts great! It goes and goes! To all the reviews complaining about flooding a problem. A saw can't flood itself!!!! Pull two times full choke, go half choke, pull again and it starts everytime even after sitting for weeks if not months. Learn to use your tool and not blame it for user error. July 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by I wish Honda made a chainsaw When it is hot and muggy it would be fast to use a hand saw than try and start a Stihl.I have 2 like new ones a 250 and 290 can't start either one after 50 pulls following the instruction for each I am exhausted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start Yes the cord is harder to pull than cheaper saws but for me it cold starts in 3 pulls after sitting up over night. The harder the cord id to pull the better the engine is. If your reading these reveiws before you buy get the ms251 woodboss im pretty sure it has easy2 start this saw has do much low emd torque i almost never full throttle it unlike my cheaper saw July 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by When it runs it runs like a Stihl should... This saw has been a true pain to own. The main problem I have is getting it started. After reading the other reviews it seems other folks have the same issue. I don't want to hear "bad gas" issues either. This saw has a flooding issue, plain and simple. There is no room for error on starting this saw. You must follow the directions to the letter. When in full choke don't pull more than twice! The saw will flood, and you will be breaking it down to clear it out. The guy at the shop got it to fire right up, didn't tell me about the flooding issue though, had to figure that out on my own.Would I buy it again? Yes, I would.Would I recommend it to my friends? Yes, with the caveat this saw has flooding issues. To the point it affects its dependability, value and overall quality.I expect these issues from lesser brands but not from Stihl. July 3, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poorly engineered I don't like fuel and oil cap design. It is very hard to start I have used it twice, noticed hairline crack in the zytel just below chain sprocketThe saw runs great if you can get it startedIt was an impulse buy, should have looked at reverb saws, this brand does not live up to hype June 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great product This saw will start every time I need it to .I have had this saw for about 2 years now and have never had a days worth of problem out of it .. June 23, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too difficult to get started. Have followed the mfgr's starting proceduresand those posted on line and it is still impossible to start. This purchase was a mistake. June 19, 2016
