Rated 1 out of 5 by Garbage I am a huge stihl fan, they are the only products I buy and will continue to do so. That being said this saw is garbage, had used it one once needed to take back and get s new clutch. NO POWER NONPOWER NO POWER NO power cheap chain tightening system, and the easy start system is the stupidest and hardest thing to use. This is not a homeowner or professional saw this is a waste of time and money. I recommend all and any other of MY stihl equipment just not this chainsaw!! Luckily I have a great Stihl dealer and he took it back and I got another one! June 15, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use and Dependable I bought this saw almost a year ago I have used it a lot cutting trees down for wood burning and little things around the house. The saw has been fantastic and has never given me a problem. Being in upstate NYI have used it in 10 degree weather and 100 degree weather. There is little to no vibration, it is light enough for me to use it all day without an issue. It has plenty of power for what I need. I will never buy anything other than Stihl products again! Most definitely recommend this saw! June 1, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed Very disappointed. Purchased because of the Stihl reputation and I needed a reliable saw. I have owned this saw for less than 1 year and it's been nothing but problematic. Easy adjustment equals doesn't work; the adjustment wheel broke twice in 1 year. Easy start equals floods often and unreliable. I was told there was a problem with the fuel system and the cost to repair was greater than the cost of the chainsaw. Don't waste your money on this saw. May 31, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality piece of equipment I bought this saw after helping a friend cut firewood using their saw. I was really impressed with the easy start system. Its a tough and reliable saw. May 24, 2016
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
