Rated 5 out of 5 by Love My Stihl Saw My wife bought me a Yellow colored 20 inch saw from a big box store..I had nothing but trouble.. I felt bad because it was a gift.. I eventually returned it after a year or so of fighting with it not starting,throwing chains, stalling..etc,...To their credit Lowes gave me a full refund.. 30 years ago I had a Stihl 056 AV model.. Thinking back about what a great saw that was I decided to check out Stihl again. I went to Hartsville Outdoor Equip. and bought a MS250 saw,, What a difference..I have had this saw since October of 2013 and it has run flawlessly ! January 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent saw, only problem is that I didn't buy a Stihl sooner Had other brands of chain saws but none compare to this MS250. Plenty of power, chain remains sharp longer than the others, and it starts eaasier in the cold weather. I wish I had paid the higher price a long time ago. It would have saved me a lot of trouble. Admit it, you get what you pay for..... January 16, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by great saw I did a ton of research before investing in any saw. When it came down to it this was the best brand. This was my first chainsaw and I bought it from an ace hardware. They treated me right. I was going to tget an even bigger chainsaw and explained I have huge fallen logs on my property to cut and will be mostly used for firewood. They said this is the biggest one I would need saving me some money instead of going bigger. They explained all the safety features along with starting and maintenance. It was about a week or two later that I used it. Of course first time I tried starting it I flooded it. They told me to bring it in. Dropped it off and picked it back up in the morning because the mechanic was out. They reshowed me how to properly start it again. Now that I have this thing going its amazing and cuts wood like cake. I'm incredibly happy with my purchase and have a feeling this thing is going to last. Great product and great service. Not heavy at all and I'm not a big guy so that helps. December 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Starts 3rd pull every time! If you follow the correct cold start procedure this saw starts 3rd pull every time. Quality costs a little more-well worth the difference!I don't have to throw it away and get a new one every 2 years. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is the reason I just purchased a new ms271 chain saw My MS250 is 8 years old and has cut approximatley 40 cords of firewood. My favorite feature of this chainsaw is that it "sits idle" during the summer months as I only cut in the cooler/winter weather. This saw has never failed to start...ever. Past saws that I have owned have always failed to start, not this one. When I cut with this saw, its usually several hours and thanks to itw weight/power ratio, it is perfectly balanced therefore you will not get fatigued using it for long periods.. I do use a gas conditioner to fight the effects of ethanol. My hope is that my new 271 will serve me as well as this 250. I highly recommend the MS 250. I am giving the 250 to my son.

Rated 1 out of 5 by If I trained a beaver it would have been less time consuming I bought a ms 250c from my local dealer that I don't care to deal with at all. I was told from a friend that the quick chain tensioner worked great. "Remember mine is a ms 250c not a ms 250" I was skeptical of this but it truly does work great. It starts ever time like a saw should and the power to weight is real good. I run a 18inch bar with a full chisel chain and it works well. It came with a 16inch bar. When I bought the saw it leaked bar oil everywhere and did not oil the chain worth a dam. I took it back to the dealer and was told the quick bar oil caps on the saw leak all the time. So after buying two new caps And the problem was no different I was told there is a new style cap out and bought that with no difference. I noticed bar oil leaking out from under the exhaust so I took the muffler off and there was a uncapped hole leaking bar oil from day one. After online research I found it was a oil air vacuum valve that was never in there. I was trying to buy one online only to find stihl will not let anyone post parts or part diagrams online. "Crazy" so back to my local dealer and explained the problem and was told all yea that happens once in a while just tread a screw in there that's what we do. I said what about venting the oil tank? Was told air will vent around the screw threads. "Yea right" So do I drive all over to have the privilege of purchasing parts for my new saw or do I jam a wood screw in my new saw? " hear is what I'm going to do, throw this saw away and go buy a different orange colored saw! November 18, 2014
