Rated 5 out of 5 by MS250, from C&L Mower Service The saws reputation doesn't do it justice. I've got about 20 hours on my little saw and without fail starts every time on the 4th pull. The trick is full choke for the first 3 pulls, switch to 1/2 choke for the 4th pull and she starts up. (Every time!) The saw really gets the job done, my brother has had one for about 6 years and it still runs like a champ. If you invest in this saw, it will put a smile on your face every time you get it out of the case! March 2, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by MS 250 Chainsaw is excellent Purchased a Stihl MS 250 Chainsaw right after Christmas. Starts excellent and runs great. This is a very strong saw and makes light work of cutting wood. February 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by impossible to crank When I first purchase this saw it worked great, then it started to get really hard to crank, now almost impossible to crank. I had service people look at it and they would just smile and shake their head. I was talking to a friend of mine who has the same saw and the same problem. I might try another Stihl but never a ms250.Also leaked oil when sitting for a time.I agree with another reviewer, that one must have been made of scrap parts or on Monday morning. February 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Chain saw I had bought other brands of chain saws and even before the warranty was up the chain saw would break down. I was spending between $250 to $350 dollars every time a got a new saw. they just kept breaking down. Then my girlfriend of 8 years surprised me with a STIHL chain saw MS 250 home version . Even the appearance was of good quality. I have used it on just about every kind of wood and have not had one problem with it. This will be my only brand from now on. Cuts great and is very durable and dependable. Starts ever time and the power just blows these other brands out of the park. I feel with all the cutting I do (we heat with wood) you can not ask for a better value. I has saved me a lot of time and money because I'm not struggling to keep it running. Thanks for a great product! February 12, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by This saw is not reliable and high maintenance! Starting gets harder and harder after every use. Leaks oil while working or while sitting idle between jobs. The chain tensioner does not work properly and you have to constantly adjust it or reset the chain and bar. I am now under the impression that this saw was made from spare parts from other saws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love My Stihl Saw My wife bought me a Yellow colored 20 inch saw from a big box store..I had nothing but trouble.. I felt bad because it was a gift.. I eventually returned it after a year or so of fighting with it not starting,throwing chains, stalling..etc,...To their credit Lowes gave me a full refund.. 30 years ago I had a Stihl 056 AV model.. Thinking back about what a great saw that was I decided to check out Stihl again. I went to Hartsville Outdoor Equip. and bought a MS250 saw,, What a difference..I have had this saw since October of 2013 and it has run flawlessly ! January 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent saw, only problem is that I didn't buy a Stihl sooner Had other brands of chain saws but none compare to this MS250. Plenty of power, chain remains sharp longer than the others, and it starts eaasier in the cold weather. I wish I had paid the higher price a long time ago. It would have saved me a lot of trouble. Admit it, you get what you pay for..... January 16, 2015
