Rated 5 out of 5 by Speedy saw I am a carver and due to my Christmas tree carvings suddenly becoming in demand this year I needed a saw that would speed up the initial shaping process my small ms 150 that I use for detailing just couldn't handle doing long angled rip cuts at any kind of speed but the ms 362 absolutely flys through anything rip cut or not I'm chuffed it has easily halved the initial shaping process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My go to saw I own a small east Texas tree service and own 13 stihl saws ranging from the ms192tc to the ms660 and this is my favorite. Pound for pound easily the best i own. Saw starts 2nd pull every time. It's even better light enough to climb with for bigger jobs where a top handle just won't do. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Multi-purpose Saw Ever! I have used this saw for over a year now with both the 20" and 25" bars. I have used Husky saws and Stihl saws for over 30 years now and hands down the MS362CM is the best all around saw I have put in my hands---fast cutting, light for the power, starts so easy, balance is very nice, and just flat fun to run. I am also a big fan of the MS241CM.Anyway, happy cutting folks! November 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by plenty of power, easy to start, runs great, 20" bar is perfect Got a great deal from salida true value on this saw. The build quality is very good and the anti vibe features work well. My saw is very powerful and cuts through the pine and aspen I use for firewood incredibly fast. I did have a problem after about two tanks of fuel, however. There was a problem with the m-tronic carb. I took the saw back to my dealer and it was repaired the next day no questions. The dealer replaced the carb with a new one and problem solved. A friend of mine has a similar husky and is jealous of my stihl. High quality tool I'll have for years. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid product I've loved my MS361 for years, and I recently had an experience that made me realize how staunchly Stihl stands behind their products. After multiple repetitions of the same problem, I contacted the company, and they paid for a full root-cause analysis of the oil system and all necessary repairs. Before this, I had been considering purchasing a new saw from another company, but after this, I'll stick with Stihl for the long haul. October 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 362 Great saw for what 95% of us out there need. I have owned 3 stihl saw's, so far. 290 farm boss, 192t, and 362 c-m. it is just a tad lighter than the 290 farm boss but with my 25 inch bar, it keeps the weight balanced. This saw needs at least 3 good hours of low/mid/high rpm break in. I noticed my oiler wasn't giving me what i wanted to see on my chain, so i cranked it up to the max. I now am able to run a 25 inch bar and turn the chain by hand and see drops, (tiny) but still visible drops of oil on each cutter. Yellow chain. I am unsure if the "Green label" chain has different oiling properties. If the dealer you get it from doesn't tell you, make sure you run through 2 good logs then re adjust chain. When it comes to starting, it's almost as fun as running the saw. Very easy saw to start. Just remember you don't need to give these saws gas when starting, Ever. Love the power, it rips through everything 12-15 inch wide. hard, or soft wood. I've cross-planned 35 inch rounds with this saw. If you're looking for a "advanced user" limbing saw. If you will be moving around a lot while cutting big logs, this is the one. If you're going to be cutting big logs and staying mainly in one spot, get yourself the 660. The air cleaner is very easy to clean on the newer saws as well. High flow paper mesh type, high quality. October 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best saw I have ever owned! This was a step up from my MS 250 - which is also a great saw. I like how easy the MS 362C-M is to start. I'm able to do anything needed with this saw on my 5 acre (mostly all hardwood) property. I particularly like the way it is constructed with metal covers on both sides vice the plastic on other models. The weight to power ratio is excellent. This is truly an all day saw. Well worth the investment! October 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by The product is a great saw for moderate use The saw has decent power for its size and cuts well. The problems that we have encountered with it, is that it needs to be warmed up very well to keep running. If not, it will keep dying on you. Also, not being able to adjust the carb without taking it into a dealer is very cumbersome and very inconvenient. After about 25-30 hours on it, we had to take it in and have the dealer reset the tuning adjustments. We have another 40-50 hours on it again, and it is starting to need adjusting again. When it is adjusted right and working it does great though. October 2, 2015
