Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw Muffler screws becoming loose all the time, aluminum gasket gets ruined. I do own 5 of them, ALL have same problem, even better tread gets damaged, ripped out from cylinder.(I do retread and put 1mm bigger screw with high heat and vibration resistant tread lock) and think will have to put tread lock on new saw muffler screws before first use.Other ways it's a GREAT saw, compare to TS400(I had around 20) it's holding up really great. All of them still runs, no mechanical breaks like TS400 had with piston rings, axle bearings.We do masonry and it gets its beating dry or wet cutting. April 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by saws work well we have 8 ts400+7 ts420s i freshen them up in the winter all very good saws.the last one we got does not use a decompression valve! I question that. but i trust stihl.they are the best we can find February 23, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Muffler issues I own a few of these 420 saws, i have had problems with all of them. mufflers come off within a matter of a month or two. I have tried Loctite on the bolts, also had them worked on by stihl dealers and they break off again. I have been using stihl equip for years but am more than likely done buying these cut-off saws if this flaw continues to be a problem. January 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Two thumbs up. This is a great tool. We wish we would have bought it years ago. Starts easy, runs great, has lots of power, blades last a long time. We are cutting a lot of 2 7/8 inch pipe and some 4 inch makes quick work of it. If you are thinking about one get one you will not be sorry. December 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Saw Except for exhaust problems I have had my 420 cut of saw for 4 years now and the past year i have had problems with the muffler coming off. Bolts come loose from the head. Im not sure if this is new or what. But it cost me money for the down time. Really like the saw except for this. I hope they can fix this issue. September 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by problem with the TS 420 i own about 15 TS 420 chop saws . i have been having issues of the exhaust coming lose and doing damage to our saws . love the saws but hate the problem costing my company extra money and time while the saw is down. all i say is if you buy a TS 420 take the screws out of the muffler and locktite them .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice saw Im a 20 year mason contractor and have used Stihl saws for ever. This saw performs very well.A couple nit picks about the saw though, to compliment an already great saw.The start mechanism is clunky on this generation. It is hard to tell if the throttle is on or not when setting the switch.I really like the choke, although the smoothness of the lever could be greatly improved. It is to rigid IMO. I would also like to have a definitive choke ON choke OFF. I am writing it on the machine with marker for my guys. Were not engineers, so which way does what? It is easy to flood these machines if people get the choke "wrong".The stock pull cord is too short. I almost ripped the machine in half when first starting my new saw.The hose attachment rides low to the ground and I have already noticed it could be taking abuse.I like how high the blade sits at a resting position as compared to my old trusty TS400.As compared to the TS 400 the distance from the two hand grip positions has been shortened. I prefer the TS400 gripping positions, although im sure I wont notice in a matter of days.I have been looking at the spring that is mounted on the sides and question its durability. I mentioned to the salesman that it probably wont make it a year. The people who use these tools are animals. Switches that don't move smoothly will get snapped off, pull cords that are short will get ripped apart and springs that are mounted to the outside could possibly get knocked off.Don't get me wrong, I love this saw, just some areas I would like to see an improvement :) April 28, 2013
