Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start, very dependable. I have been using Stihl saws for years. My bigger saws were the O46 and the O66. Both are great saws. I recently purchased the 880 with a 41 inch bar, thinking it would have around 1/5 more power than my O66 for cutting through bigger logs. I was disappointed in the power with the longer bar. I ordered a 30 inch bar and chain to try and get the cutting speed where I had expected it. It did cut faster, but for the money I would stick with the O66 (now the 660). January 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome saw and a dream to operate! I bought this saw about six months ago and have ripped through hundreds if not thousands of board feet of storm damaged red oak, white oak, hickory and poplar. it is not amazingly hard to start once you get a feel for it. usually takes two or three pulls in the all the way down throttle position and then move one up and another two or three pulls and it fires right up! i have found that warming it up a bit at say half throttle keeps it from cutting off numerous times. i do run high octane fuel and the new two cycle engine oil for all three of my Stihl saws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A great saw for big wood A big powerful saw that will cut large wood with no problems. My 880 is equiped with a 47 inch bar and full comp chain when I cut up large oak trees here. Never have had a time where the saw was not able to do the job I ased it to do. I change to a 24" bar when I need to cut rounds into pieces small enough to move around and load onto my trailer. It cuts a good bit faster than my 066, doing the same job. Would not want to lug it around all day, but for the uses I have for it, the 880 is a perfict choice. It is also great to see the look on peoples faces when they get to run this big of a saw for the first time. December 20, 2013

Rated 3 out of 5 by my died after 6 months? I am a stihl fan I buy everything stihl I am lately becoming unhappy with there products. The 404 grinder wheels are not lasting long at all they break off after sharpening half a chain.. I bought a ms880 in very good used condition 2years ago it was the older model 880 with the massize muffler that saw was amazing I retired it because I rolled s big tree over it. Even after that it still ran like a monster. I bought a brand new 880 6 months ago it had problems from the beginning I felt much less power and weaker compression. Today it died I took it to Stihl they are telling me the piston and cylinder are bad . I always run St IHL 2 cycle oil. ? Over all not happy with this saw. Stihl needs to design a better air intake filter . I have the 660 and 880 there is far to much dust getting past the air filter and burning up my saws!!!!! However I have 6 bars for this saw so I will buy another 880. And hope for a longer lasting saw with no factory defects!! July 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by One Heck of a Saw I have two MS880's one with a 32" bar and one with a 41" bar. I use the 41" to fell and the other for bucking, stumpage, or "just in case". You don't want to be felling a huge tree near structures and not have a backup saw of equal size. I have to say it is a HUGE jump in weight from the 660, however, the ease of which it pulls a .404 standard sequence chain over a 32"+ bar through extremely dense grain Texas Live Oak is really remarkable. I wouldn't worry much about the size getting you hurt unless you are climbing over limbs with the saw still running. It's so heavy that the power doesn't throw the saw back at you like the smaller saws. The only reason to have a saw like this is to fell or buck trees that are at least 40" diameter. Don't expect to cut firewood with this thing without taking a couple breaks. April 23, 2013
