Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a very hard working tool. I love my saw. It is just the right size for the kind of work I do. Not too big, but with plenty of power. Always easy to start. I work this tool very hard every weekend. As with all my Stihl products, I've had very good luck. April 8, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by would not recommend this product I bought my Stihl MS 250 chain saw in 2011, and have had a problem for over two years getting it to crank. Seems the engine will flood 4 times out 5. I have tried all the various modes - choke closed, choke open, ignition, etc., and nothing seems to work. Take it to the dealer and always same story - engine is flooded. Follow the booklet and dealer instructions on proper cranking procedure to no avail. Definitely would not recommend this product to anyone!! April 6, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Saw is "ok" I bought this saw for ranch use cutting staves. It took a few days for the saw to gain full power which is normal but afterwards I was not impressed. Firstly the saw has little power and I am only cutting 2 to 3 inch limbs and bucking them at 5 foot. This saw struggles with that and I see no reason why. Secondly it is made from useless material, the clutch cover is plastic and so is the case and I have already seen melting near the dawg drill holes. I would not recommend this saw I would rather buy an older pro saw like an 036. April 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Extremely difficult to start! I bought the Stihl MS 250 to replace my 35+year old E*** because it had gotten difficult to start and I had heard the Stihl was a good brand. That was money wasted as the old chainsaw still starts better and cuts as well as the Stihl. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! April 2, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard Starting I have been VERY disappointed with this saw; supposed to be "so easy, even a child can run it" ?REALLY This is the biggest waste of money ever. I had trouble from the first day; took it back, the dealer mad some adjustments...and it still starts MAYBE 1 in 10 times. I have had many saws and worked for the Forest Service as a faller, never had trouble like this. I would NOT RECOMMEND this SAW to ANYONE, not even a child March 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hits above its weight very impressed with the lite weight and power this saw has. I was contemplating buying cheaper brands but having owned a few of them over the years I knew they just don't last long term, plus so many of the chainsaws in this class weigh in the 17 to 20 lb range. I bought it for limbing and felting trees in the 12 to 14 inch range and it has been the equal of any task I have ask of it. it was bought at heplers hardware in youngwood pa, folks that I have delt with and trusted for many years now and this purchase has only justified my confidence in the products I purchase from them. great saw for anyone. highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little saw I only owned the saw a few days, but I was very impressed at the power to weight ratio of this saw. I bought this saw for a lightweight around the house saw and I think it could handle much more. I am happy with my purchase so far. March 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by All around good chainsaw. I have had my MS250 for almost 2months now. It is hands down the best chainsaw I have ever had. I am glad I decided to purchase the MS250 over the cheap "use it and throw it away" chainsaws you get at major chain stores. My only complaint would be when I first got it, I spent some time breaking off the melted excess plastic inside the fuel tank and bar oil tank that is a result of the molding process of the plastic tanks. It's not a big deal but I didn't want those pieces breaking off and floating in the 2 tanks. It's a small task to remove the melted excess before assembly and wish Stihl took the time to do it. Other than that I am very pleased with the product and do recommend it. March 22, 2014
