Rated 5 out of 5 Above a homeowner saw ! Great chain speed ! great torque ! We are a tree outfit and these 251 saws are my best for the price low mid range saws... Great for ground work, great for tree work, Easy to clean ! Recommend cutting up to 16 inch trees.. Not enough power to handle above 16 inch... Very light !!!Stapert Tree & Forestry September 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like Butter!!! This is the first STIHL product that I have purchased and have decided that I will not buy any other brand. I have had an awesome experience with this chainsaw. I am a novice chainsaw user and found it is easy to use, and it cuts everything in its path. AMERICAN made!! September 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall nice saw! This is overall a nice saw and cuts well on smaller trees and cleaning up downed trees and small to medium size trees. So far my experience is the larger trees it will struggle with it is not enough power to cut 14 or so inch trees. Especially if you are use to a larger saw and using the teeth to hold the saw and let it cut. This saw cuts better with no pressure pushing down on the log and not using the teeth and pivoting up and down with the bar.It is a great in between saw if you are using a larger saw to cut down the big trees and then use this to cut them up. I will say I used it for 5 hours off and on and it cuts on and off effortlessly. My old Husky Rancher 55 would out cut but this saw is smooth and does well for its smaller size and CC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by plenty of power, easy to handle I owned an 025 for over 25 years, and never had any issues with it, so when I decided to get a new saw, I went with the comparable MS251, ans was blown away with how much it had improved, ease of use and power behind the saw. July 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good, dependable saw I use the MS 251 to cut firewood for our Adirondak cabin in northern NY. We heat solely with wood and burn about 5 cords a winter. The 251 has plenty of power for this purpose, is light and dependable. I am very happy with the 251. July 25, 2014
