Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost unbelievable easy starting I am 78 years old and so have owned many chainsaws and we won't go into brand names, but this is the first Stihl for me. I have owned saws that did a lot of work well, after getting started. That is the main problem I've had with any small 2 cycle engine, getting it going. If you don't dump the gas tank and run it dry and leave it for any period of time without using it, it will usually give you much misery and get you out of the mood of even using it. This MS251 with the easy start feature is amazing, especially if you use the premix fuel. No jerking and testing your patience, just a good steady pull and usually 2-4 pulls and you are on your way, if you follow directions of use of controls. I only wish I had spent the few dollars more years ago and it would have saved me many hours of anguish and I would have gotten more work done instead of spending time working on the saw. The thumb adjust chain tensioner is a really neat feature on this saw too. Saves time and don't have to have screwdriver with you to tighten chain. March 19, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Start feature is so great, you can crank this saw with broken ribs!!! I have always wanted a Stihl because of the quality and performance, but little did I know the best feature was the Easy Start! Due to poor planning on my part, I misjudged where a limb I was cutting would land and it actually knocked me off of a ladder. When I landed (didn't know it at the time) I broke 2 ribs over my heart. I got up, cranked the saw back up and continued cutting until I was finished. Fantastic saw, a real joy to use!!! Wish I had bought one sooner!!! February 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, easy, fast. This battery saw is wonderful. For small pruning, cleaning up branches, even cutting some firewood, it's all a person needs. Lightweight, easy to take along. No fuel to mess with. It's great.Small battery could have more life, but the big one costs a fortune. It's a balance.So far, it has handled every job with ease. I can even trim early on Sunday and the neighbors don't complain. February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this saw! I researched saws for about 6 months before I chose the ms 251 C-BEI have owned tons of non sthil saws in the past and I kept hearing how amazing Sthil products were. I researched and researched and decided to finally pay more for a sthil. I went with this saw bc of the easy start feature and the 18 inch bar. It is awesome! I have been using it all week and I love it. It starts really easily and I really like the simple chain adjustor. it runs great and doesn't suck up to much gas. I give it five stars! What really helped me is that the southern states sthil rep showed me how to use use it when I bought it. Otherwise I think it would have taken me forever to figure out the start and stop features.Also so far it was well worth paying a extra $40 to have the quick start feature. February 5, 2015
