Rated 1 out of 5 by Unable to start after sitting for a month I have had this product for about three years and have used it 5 times, I would use it more but each time that I try to use the saw it will not start. I actually have to take it into the dealership and have them keep it for a few weeks, then return home to have the saw start correctly. After a few months, the same thing happens again. I have never been able to get it to start without having the dealer work on it first...even the very first time. I don't know if it is me or the machine but the frustration is overwhelming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect All-around Saw I bought this saw @ 18 months ago. I've used it to clear trees on my property up to 24" in diameter. With a sharp chain this saw works effortlessly. The power of the MS250 is unfailing. I knew that I bought the right saw when a logger showed up to my house to limb up some redwoods and he brought along an MS250 also. He said the same thing I say, "It's the best all around chainsaw you can get." For firewood cutting, brush clearing, and tree thinning, this saw does it all. I would see no reason to ever go with any other multi-purpose chainsaw than this one. I highly recommend this saw. August 22, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not impressed I had always heard Stihl was the best, so I thought I would buy one and quit fighting the cheap brands. I have had my MS250 for less than a year, and it is in the shop right now because it wouldn't start. Not getting any spark, Before that, I would have to say that I could not tell any difference in this chainsaw and my cheapo chainsaw. Both hard to start, and both do the job once you get them started, but the cheapo was 1/3 the price. At this point, I don't think I would ever buy another Stihl. We'll see how it goes when I get it back from repair. July 30, 2015

I have five STIHL saws 027,250m,361m, 440 m and 441 m the 250 will work you down starting it. I have replaced spark plugs trying to find a hotter plug and also replaced coil with OEM coil. going to try a after market coil. cuts like a champ when it's running. July 19, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nearly impossible to start Received as a gift years ago. Followed instructions exactly and would not start for over two hours. Went to pull plug and the wire came apart. Managed to get it back together after cleaning fouled plug. Finally started. Used maybe 10 hours the last few years. Spent probably five hours trying to start it. Have owned MANY 2 stroke engines and this is the worst ever. When it is running it works great but I have probably spent enough energy trying to start it as I would have using an axe to get the work done. July 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good saw Starts well and runs well. It's hard to keep a straight cut on large logs that require a second cut. Also it uses a lot of fuel. July 9, 2015
