Rated 1 out of 5 by Not worth the price I bought this chain saw because I have a home depot chain saw which lasted 12 years before it stop running after a hour of use. But after 6 months following the dealer recommendation it is crashing hard I have to wait 15 - 30 min before it runs again. I took it it in for a tune up, went back to work, and it started again. I have two chains I even rotate them to keep things balanced. This is a big let down. May 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not enough to chain oil going to the chain to keep it from going dull Saw as advertised good quality .. Chain dulls quickly. Oiler does not oil enough to keep the chain sharp. May 20, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Low power I bought this saw as an upgrade to my 23 year old one, but after getting a few inches into a pine log, it would bog down. I brought it back to the dealer, but after a tune up the performance was still poor. To make sure it wasn't me, I pulled out my old, smaller saw and it cut better. I ended up returning it and buying a different brand. May 10, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Designed by someone who doesn't use it The first thing I found puzzling was how the gas and oil caps open and close. In a clean workshop with a bench convenient and an air chuck close at hand you may be able to keep sawdust out of the oil and fuel tanks but out in the woods in the snow it's a near impossibility and the plastic chain tensioner just plain didn't work. Sorry but in the woods crammed with saw dust it won't work and to take it apart and get all hose tiny parts back together? In the cold? Did the designer ever saw. His/her design team? May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw does a great job It works when you need it and like all power equipment, read the manuals before using. May 5, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great saw I just bought my first still chainsaw, the ms251. I am kicking myself for not getting one a long time ago. My other saw took a very long time to fell a tree,the stihl went through a 10 inch red oak like butter.all I could saw when that oak fell was wow. I love this saw. April 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My first Stihl Chainsaw I've had 3 different chainsaws but this is my first Stihl chainsaw. I did purchase a Stihl weed trimmer and absolutely love it. Same with this chainsaw. Easy start, actually everything about it is easy. Light weight, powerful, very little vibration, easy to clean and as a 67 year young guy I feel very comfortable with this saw. I am also a woodworker and recently upgraded to a larger lathe. This thing is just awesome round off rough edges prior to mounting on my lathe. Absolutely recommend for anyone needing a smaller size saw that can do a big job. April 13, 2016
