Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw! Bought this on the recommendation of my son, who works for a tree/landscape service, to go with a Stihl saw. I love it, he loves it, enough said! February 18, 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Research Normally I will research products and spend days reading reviews. BUT this purchase was a bit of an impulse buy. The Ace hardware store owner was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in choosing the right saw.I've been using it for a week straight about 5 hours a day. EZ start really is....power was impressive. I cut trees from 6"-24", without any problems. Chain does need to get tightened from time to time, but it was quick and didn't require any tools. I did have to change the chain and have the first one sharpened due to the fact some of my work was clean up and trunks were laying in dit which dulls a blade quickly.Very happy so far and actually look forward to using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great starting feature I first bought the straight 251 and found the high compression engine to take more muscle to start than I wanted to use. So I exchanged it for the 251 C-BE. What a relief. It works best at higher rpm's. This saw tackled 80% of clearing out big fallen trees (24" diameter) and all firewood cuts. A bigger saw could do everything but the lighter weight of the 251 keeps me cutting for longer periods. The EZ tension adjuster takes getting used to. January 16, 2015
