Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely love this saw. Never have problems with it I have a large house 3600+ sq ft and I use wood to suppliment my propane heating costs. This saw is an absolute power house. The only issue I have is it seems a little shy on power when cutting with the full length of the bar ( I have a 20"). I am considering picking up a full skip chain to see if that helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I own one saw Weight and vibration reduction is very impressive. When the dealer handed me this saw I thought i may have made a mistake and purchased a smaller saw. After cutting for a short time, hard and soft wood, I found out how much power this saw can deliver. I'm very happy. April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw!! I had been in the market for a new saw for about a year. I explored all options of pro saws in a variety of different colors. I have owned a Stihl MS290 Farm Boss for over 10 years and have never had any issues. That kind of reliability kept screaming at me to stay with Stihl. I always felt that I just needed a little more power. This of course was after using my cousins Stihl 064 for a few days and then going back to my saw. I knew I needed to step up to a pro saw The reviews on the saws with the m-tronic were really positive. I decided on looking at the Stihl MS 362CM. I stopped in to a dealer in the town I had grown up in and asked if he had any in stock. He said he didn't but if I had 15 minutes he would go to distribution center and grab one so that I could check it out. He returned in about 10 minutes with the saw. It felt great and was really well balanced with the 20 inch bar. I was surprised at how light it felt. I ended up purchasing the saw pretty much on the spot. I took the saw home and started it up. It started on the 5th pull with the compression release. It is a nice option but not necessary with this saw. I let the saw warm up and had a 15 inch diameter log about 20 feet long to lay some cuts into. I started cutting and the saw bogged and seemed like it was losing power under load. I kept it full throttle under load in the log and little by little it came to life. I was actually shocked by the amount of power this saw has. I ended up bucking that log into 14 inch pieces in no time. I have used the saw several times since then and it feels like it keeps gaining power. Overall I am extremely happy with this saw and like the fact it can run a 25 inch bar if the need arises. This saw was exactly what I was looking for and definitely exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by best power to weight ratio ever Best saw I've ever owned. I'm a tree climber and this is by far my favorite tool on a day to day basis. Had a 261 c-m and it was awesome as well but its worth it to go up a size. An extra horse, bigger bar, duel dog and wrap handle option make it the best light pro saw on the market. With the 25" bar and RS chain I out cut my buddies husky 372 all day. And that's a 70cc. With a 20" I'd smoke that saw! Stihl smashes all competition! April 3, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by What a nice product I've been running stihl saws since 1977. The 362 as i have gotten older is a perfect fit on weight, balance and cutting ability.I look forward to running this saw every time I take it out.Don't get me wrong a younger man will love it to. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great saw I bought this saw to cut firewood on the farm and it has never let me down. I run a 18 inch bar on it and it will cut through all I put it though the other guy on the farm runs a ms391 and this saw will out cut it any time March 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far, So good This was not a split second decision. I have invested many, many hours for months researching all saws before making an educated decision on what to buy. I stopped at numerous dealers and talked with numerous people who work with chainsaws routinely...landscapers, construction, loggers, etc. The first conclusion I came to was that I would be buying a Stihl product. At first i was considering the MS290, 291, 311, and 391. Then further research pushed me into Pro models 261 and 362. After careful consideration and review I picked the MS362, which I purchased January of 14'. First lesson learned, it is well worth the few extra dollars to get yourself into the "Pro" model saws. I have put about 10 tanks of gas, Stihls MotoMix only, through my 362 since purchased. Ive cut 30"dia oak, elm, cherry and poplar. I have ran a 20" and 25" bar on my saw pending on the tree. I have recently used my saw attached to a "JIG" for ripping oak boards. My 362 running both bars works like a dream and picked up praise from seasoned veterans. Second lesson learned, this saw DOES gain noticeably more power as you go through tanks of fuel. The only knock i have on this saw is the decompression valve button for easier starting. When I bought at dealer, filled with fluids and it fired up no problems using this feature. Ever since then, the times iv'e pushed it, it seems harder to start and floods easy when i do. This has not been a big deal since the saw starts very easy without using it anyway, so i never push it-no need. The amount of time invested in researching this saw should be shared with others who are considering. Overall, the 362 has been awesome. It has tackled all the wood I have thrown at it like a champ. I look forward to my weekends with my 362 and letting it "eat". I am a firm believer this is a saw for life. My ratings would be all 5stars except I just haven't used it enough yet. Other than that, Im happy happy happy with the 362. March 2, 2014
