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
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good when it runs Don't let this saw set more than 6 months because it won't start. Followed the book no go. I think I am going to take to dealer and let them get it started than trade not another Stihl I want something that will start when needed. June 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great chain saw I have 4 chainsaws of the 4 I have never had a problem with the Stihl chainsaw. I do use nonbio fuel. And always "lay it up" along with my other power tools at the end of year. I do use Stihl fuel when I "lay them up" for the winter. June 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw Have bought it used. After tuning the carburetor exactly, it starts always after 3 - 5 pulls. I'm fueling it with Stihl Motomix. But it is very important to run the exact starting procedure (about 3 pulls full choke, then 1 or two pulls half choke). Otherwise it will flood. Great for firewood and cleaning around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine for about any cutting need. Bought this about 4 years ago and have had little to no trouble. Once you figure out the starting process, which is easy, I have had no problems. It is lightweight and very powerful for it's size. June 14, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Floods easily Bought this saw two years ago.I followed the cranking instructions exactly.Runs ok if you can ever get the thing started. June 13, 2016
