Rated 5 out of 5 by Best homeowner saw ever! Worth double the money! Worth every penny, have been using stihl saws over 12 years best ground saw, Palm saw, chunking saw on the market. A few pesky minor issues easy solved with the slightest mechanical ability. The ms 250 is tough enough to be used every day by tree industry professionals! October 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by i dont know if i got a bad batch or what This thing ...every time i go to use it theres something wrong. Oiler is weak and clogs easily. Had to switch to winter mix year round. Hard starts so i did all the maintenance ...air filter , plug and fuel filter. Cleaned religiously ...sprocket cover comes off after every use to remove debris. Even bought the carbide chain. Started it today after 3 pulls..ok im not complaining... 1 hours use last weekend and 2 before that and the chain nearly walks off. Probably 20 hours total. Didnt have my scrench...didnt figure id need it. Cant cut a thing on a 58 degree day. I have 4 other stihls....041..045...015...090... and two that are in need of work..030 and 031... spent thousands on this brand...if it fell off my truck on the highway id let it go. Sorry stihl this thing is awful. Also your air filter design is terrible. Im going in for a pro saw for the added expense just because i cant depend on this one...thanks a bunch. October 4, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by horrible saw and even worse customer service Bought this saw two days ago, took it 80 miles into the woods yesterday. Chain stalled after three cuts into a standing dead pine, engine ran, chain stalled. Tried the chain brake, checked full , oil, everything, engine run but chain still stalled, repeatedly tried brake. Put it back into trunk of car, drove 80 miles back into Great Falls, Montana. Stopped at Ace hardware service center on south 10th. WORST customer service around. They dismissed that anything was wrong, reset brake handle again and said that was my problem, refused to swap it for a new one, even though it was less than 24 hours in my possesion. Now I am stuck with a chain saw that freezes after 10 minutes of use and has to cool down before the chain will release. Worthless, DO NOT buy this saw, or any Stihl product if this is the way they allow their "certified" customer service centers to treat their customers September 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Equipment. I have this and another Stihl chain saw that is 34 years old. It has cut at least 8 cords of logs every year and still impresses anyone I go out to to cut wood with. Stihl equipment cannot be outdone. Good to know there are yet equipment manufacturers that make quality tools.The only thing I don't care for are the tool-less fuel and oil caps… September 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I would not recommend this saw I just purchased the MS 250 since Stihl has it on sale. Big mistake! I had a difficult time getting it started for the first time. Finally fired up after a bit of a struggle. I ran it for a few to get the chain broke in but noticed the oiler was not working real well. The chain and bar were very dry. I went ahead and cut down a tree thinking maybe it need to run a bit more for the oiler to dispense. Nothing helped. The next day I removed the cover and bar to make sure nothing was blocking the oil hole. Everything looked good so I made another attempt. This time I could not get it to start. Here I am with a brand new saw that is less than 24 hours old and completely worthless. I tried everything I could think of. I followed the instructions in the manual exactly how they recommend. Nothing worked. I was never able to get it started. After multiple attempts and yanking repeatedly, sweating, cussing and becoming more furious with each pull, the saw went airborne. They don't hold up real well against a tree trunk. I felt like an idiot after calming down, but the damage was done. Brand new saw is now worthless.I definitely will not be purchasing another MS 250. Did I just happen to have a lemon? If I decide to stick with Stihl and try another model, will I run into issues with it starting and the oiler not working? Maybe I should try a different brand and give up on Stihl. I know that I would not recommend this model of saw. September 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl is the best saw out there This morning I went down to my local Stihl dealer and I bought this beast of a saw. (Ms250) I ran the cheaper saws over the years this saw is hands down the best. Stihl you have a great distributor at my location. The went over the saw with me on how to start it and made sure it ran before it went out the door. Starts up great ,light weight and reliable. I'm a Stihl customer forever. Plus it's made in the USA!
