Rated 1 out of 5 by Computer makes it unreliable I bought a bunch of these saws for highly demanding, production-mode cutting. Initially I was very impressed by the torque - I'd compare it to a 441! Our people run these saws at least 7 hours per day, varying in elevations and temps. After a month or so most of the saws got real finicky, requiring resets of carb, etc. We took them in last fall to have them looked at and the local dealer was great - adjusting the carb as I've read online. They worked well for a month or so, but even resetting the comp. it still gets to the point they won't run worth a darn. I love the brand and have used them for over 20 years, but this model is a disappointment, at least with the computer controlled aspect of it. May 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new MS 362 C-M I had been looking at this saw for a couple years but couldn't justify the purchase until I was about 1/2 way through a grapple load and my trusty 029 had problems, major problems. My 029 was in for at least a clutch, oil pump, hoses, worm gear just to see if I could get it working again. While the parts were on order I pulled the trigger and came home with a new toy. Wow! I've had my 029 for 19 years and couldn't be happier with it. With Stihl quality I expect to get at least 19 out of the 362. Slightly heavier than the 029 but it creates wood chips in no time. It tears through the wood. I cut mainly oak and maple and was a breeze to finish cutting up my grapple load. I haven't had it for very long but so happy I made the purchase. I did get my 029 back together with Stihl parts so now I'm on the fence about selling and keeping only the 362. I've had one saw for 19 years not sure I need two.. The 362 has great balance. I love the toolless fills for gas/oil and the nuts embedded in the side cover is a good idea. A tank of gas took me a lot farther than the 029 so I would say the 362 is pretty efficient compared to my old saw. I think I'll take the recommendation from the Stihl dealer and put the premix stuff in for storage but run fuel from the pump while I'm working it. Saw is very pricey but as long as it provides me with years of dependable service I don't mind spending the extra for a pro quality saw. When you compare the specs, hard to beat this saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by very poor oiler I am not at all pleased with this saw, got it new an cranked the oiler to the max cuz of reviews I read an the dealer assured me that wasnt a problem. Took the saw out an filled it with fluids an checked to make sure it was oiling. An then proceeded to use it an I didn't even finish a tank of gas An the oiler didn't oil as it should for a saw this expensive. An the bar is starting to burn due to lack of oil. I deff wouldn't recommend this saw. Spend the extra 200 an get the ms 441then u will have a real saw April 15, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Its great! It makes the cut" The saw cuts 20 inch oak like butter. It's a good saw, lightweight and my hands don't hurt after use of it. Strongly recommend it. April 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome saw insane power This saw was bought to be a replacement and step up from my old 029 that had been turned into a 039-390 and this thing is a lot more powerful and a fair amount lighter I got a great deal on it with a 16" bar which is a bit small for this saw but with that thing it will cut as fast as you can push it. Tons of power had a fellow farmer run it and he went and got one a few days later. I have run about 12 tanks in it so far and wounded why I waited so long to get a pro saw. April 6, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Invictus I recently upgraded saws from a 391 to the 362. I can say that the quality of the product can be identified immediately. Less weight and more power than the 391. The 362 was a no brainer. The blade cover on the 362 is aluminum in contrast to the 391's plastic. A three position switch; choke, run and off for the 362 that is directly related to the m-tronic engine management system. The 391 relies on the old school adjustment screws on the side of the engine; as a result, a four position control switch is needed for full choke, half choke, run and stop. Doesn't seem like an issue just a different starting system. The m-tronic system is like a really nice improvement over the 391, simple and easy to use. With a 25 inch bar the 362 can tackle all the pine and white oak on my 10 acres and then beg for more. Excellent product, I cannot say enough good things about this saw. April 2, 2015
