Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl continues to build the best saws. I just bought the Ms250 and I love it.I used to have a 031 until it was stolen and it was truly a great saw .I feel this 250 is a great fire wood saw and I will always own Stihl products. November 22, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hard to start- continuous problems Have had this saw for 2 years. 250 chain saw.Very hard to start, have had this saw to several different shops with no avail. Large percentage of the time will not start when most needed. Time to junk or trade for one that WORKS. November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect home owner saw Purchased this saw to do a few trees around the house as well as a couple side jobs. It has performed great! Took down 14" cedar, 12" palm, and 12" mango tree all today and it performed flawlessly. Plenty of power for take-down, limbing and bucking. Highly recommended! November 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw. Just right size and weight for homeowners. I have had this saw for about 6 years and like it. It has great power and is lightweight. It starts easily and runs smooth. I used Homelites for many years and they were a great saw and tried many other brands over the years and now I am really impressed with this Stihl. I would buy again if I ever need to. I have never had any problems with the oiler to date. November 8, 2015

Rated 3 out of 5 by Not impressed with overall function Have always bought stihl chainsaw and this is the first time I've bought one and have had numerous problems. Have taken it to get fixed and still keep having problems with it. Chain oiler constantly clogs and now the engine seized and had to get it repaired again. I don't recommend this model. Other models I've bought and used have worked fine. November 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw, I am getting a collection I currently have one and am getting another and my dad has one as well they work great and the power to weight ratio is amazing and has very fast revving engine so it cuts very fast! I log as a side job, in the summer we do it by water and about 6 times in one day I dropped it in and it was completely submerged and I could get it running within about five minutes! (I'm only 14 so that is pretty good!) October 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My most used saw. I own several saws. The ms250 is used for felling small trees and limbing (Once commercially, now for fire wood). It has a narrow body and is light. I usually grab this saw for small work and if I bring the 55cc or larger saws, this one comes along for limbing. For it's weight it has good power. It can run the 18" bar buried in oak or maple, but if that is the target size, I would go towards a larger saw. It has always started well, and has had only one issue with the plug on the chain oil port once popping out in below zero temps. The anti-vibe is not as good compared to my higher end saws, but I have had no issues with it cutting all day long (I run my saws with basic gloves that have no padding). The minimal chain oiling had always been sufficient when running an 18" bar in sappy or dry wood. It seems to be on par for price with offerings from other manufacturers for similar equipment. Maintenance is also on par with my other saws. Tool free and quick access to the air filter, plug, and warm air plugs. October 20, 2015
