Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this saw! This is the 4th Stihl saw that I own. My first is an 032AV that I bought 33 years ago when I was just finishing high school. The second one is a little 009L that I won in a raffle. I bought an MS290 Farm Boss 3 years ago, when my 032 start having carb problems, which I eventually got fixed.I bought the MS 362C-M 3 weeks ago. When I first started running it, I was under impressed! It bogged down, was very under powered. I got the manual back out and read it again it talked about the computer learning. Wow, did it learn! Tonight I went out for an hour and cut on a giant Ponderosa Pine that I have been working on for a while. This was the first time with this saw. I have a 25" bar and yellow chain. The small end of the log is about 35" and the bigger end is still about 4' . I cut for an hour with a 5 minute fuel stop.I cut 35 rounds of this tree in that time. I couldn't believe how much wood it cut, in such a short time, and how little fuel it used! This tree has supplied my home for 3 years of firewood. It was 5 1/2' on the butt and 189' on the ground. We burn about 4 1/2 cord per year. June 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect saw for the serious woodsman I purchased this saw a year ago after a recommendation from a friend who owned one. I was concerned it would become too heavy overtime. I was wrong. This saw has made my wood cutting so much more efficient. I cut 7-10 cords per season. This saw is well balanced and powerful. Another great product from Stihl!!! I can cut twice the wood in half the time. I never use a limb saw now. I don't want to take the 362 out of my hands. June 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all around saw I am an average 6' 200 Lb male and this saw just fits me perfect. I can work with it all day and love to work with it all day. It isn't too large or too small. It is easy to start and I am proud to have it as a friend June 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw for the money I would recommend this saw for everyone that cuts firewood, best saw for your money . June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by i would buy it again I have had this MS362c for almost a year. I had an 044 which was a good saw but now is tired. I don't regret getting the smaller saw for fire wood and the occasional falling. I really appreciate the isolated hand holds. they really cut down on the felt vibration. when you are into a log whit one of these just reach down with your finger and touch the saw and you will see what i mean. I was reluctant to get into a saw with electronics but has operated flawless so far and i appreciate the auto altitude adjust.I also appreciate the air filter system compared to my 044. it stays much cleaner.I opted for the 28" bar which is comfortable and i don't need to bend over much but i would say the 28" maxes out this saw. I sure it would run stronger with a 24" May 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hot rod of mid size chainsaws! First ever purchase of a Stihl and now I know that the saying is true: You get what you pay for.The 362cm is a powerful saw that is a great all around saw. It may be a bit heavy for those only doing trimming, but for anything more is will rip through wood. I have never experienced such a fast saw. It had a 25" bar on it at the dealer, but I had them switch it out for a 20" bar with a yellow chain. Talk about fast cutting. And with the power of this saw, its definitely a Hot Rod saw!Also, the antivibration works very well.I can assure you, I will only buy Stihl products from now on!! May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great power I bought a 362 about 2 months ago ..used it to cut down 4 large poplar trees 20-24 inches in diameter...cut through these trees like hot butter.never seen anything like this saw...25 inch bar.... all kinds of power. April 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is my second 362. The first one got stolen after 6 months of use and nicely broken in. My second 362 had what I occasionally see in these reviews a problem with quitting when hot and not wanting to start until it cools down. I called my dealer and talked to a service tech about the problem and he gave me the reset procedure for the M tronic module and the saw runs perfect. It's seen a lot of heavy use since and is the smoothest running saw I've ever owned. Guys and gals, give the carbide chains a try. Been running carbide on all my saws for a couple of years now and will never go back to steel! April 18, 2016
