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
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good saw I have had this saw over 15 years, and it still works well. When it becomes hard to start, I have changed out the spark plug. I always use ethanol-free gasoline. I've been quite pleased with the performance. July 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great wood saw Mainly use this for wood to heat my home. Have it set up with an 18 inch bar and it can handle some of the hardwood in our area like a champ. Love the durability of the saw, I can just throw it in the back of the gator and go cut for the day. Thinking about upgrading to a 261 or into the 300 series mainly because most of the smaller diameter trees cut on our property but other than that I probably would not make a change! An awesome saw overall. July 5, 2015
