Rated 1 out of 5 This saw is not reliable and high maintenance! Starting gets harder and harder after every use. Leaks oil while working or while sitting idle between jobs. The chain tensioner does not work properly and you have to constantly adjust it or reset the chain and bar. I am now under the impression that this saw was made from spare parts from other saws.

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.
