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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent small saw I've had this saw for 4 years and couldn't ask for a better, more reliable piece of equipment. I've cut larger trees than it is intended to, but if you don't force the saw it will cut its way through no problem. I cut 5 to 6 cord of firewood a year and this saw has never had an issue. Always starts and and still has plenty of years left in it. Trust me buy Stihl saws. They are built to last if you maintain them properly and are worth the little bit extra they cost. Love my Stihl products. July 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pull, Pull, Pull Without a doubt, this is the MOST difficult power tool to start that I have ever owned. All my other Stihl products, trimmer, pole saw start easily but not this boy. By the time I get it started, I am too worn out from pulling that I am unable to use it. Had to three different shops plus dealer's service, use premixed fuel, and replaced pull cord three times. It is light which makes carrying back and forth to the shop easy to do. June 30, 2015
