Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad experience I purchase the MS 180 C-BE on Sunday because I always heard great things about Stihl and had a small tree that needed to come down in my yard. After 30 minutes of use the saw stopped and would not start again. We returned it to Germantown Hardware in Germantown, TN and they said they could not give us a refund. The Manager called on Monday and said I used it incorrectly and that I was cutting with the chain brake on, which I wasn't. I asked him how it was possible to cut with the chain brake on and he said it happens. I just got a call from them and said I could pick it up but I would be charged for the repair. I used this saw for a total of 30 minutes. I will never buy a Stihl product again or anything from Germantown Hardware. . May 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good saw! 100%recomended! Very light! I have owned my ms 180 for about a year now and it has been a good looking reliable saw no matter what conditions. The easy-2-start is handy....sometimes. I found out that when you pull the cord about 5 times(not letting the saw turn over) it's like starting a regular one! Starts up every time weather it's cold, snowy, raining.....always. The way they designed the chain tightener is awesome, you just turn that flap thing and turn the little black knob with your finger and whalla your chain is tight! Great saw greatly recomended love it. May 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the easy start. I purchased the easy start technology chain saw. It always starts, no pulling my shoulder out. I am a 55 year old woman and love having my own saw I can handle and I don't have to call someone for help. Then I went back and got an easy start trimmer. May 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw is a pleasure to run. I own 3 Stihl Chainsaws, mainly for cutting oak firewood. I use the MS 180 C-BE at least 2/3rds of the time. I run a 14 inch bar on it and it rips while limbing, cutting up branches and cutting small to medium logs. The weight to power makes it a pleasure to use and doesn't wear me out as much as my bigger saws. My 660 still gets used as needed but the 180 can do most of what's required to fill the wood shed without the workout. April 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by More powerful than I expected This saw works great for cutting small trees down and trimming . Keep the chain sharp and it will cut through anything. April 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW this saw cuts like butter! I am a first time user of Still and of a chainsaw. My husband has MS and is in a wheelchair so all the upkeep of our property has gone to me. We needed a new saw and decided on a Stihl. The easy strategy made it great for me, I had no problems starting or using my saw, it was so much fun.I now know why men never tell their wives how fun it is because they would never get to use their saws again. Thank you Stihl for making this awesome chainsaw. April 16, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by its good machine the product is good. I bought it at ACE Hardware store I use it about an hour then I know its does not have enough power. I take it back to exchange for the one that have more power. the manager said they cannot change it, because it been use the manager attitude are really ugly . I think I never go to that place any more April 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lighter saw I started my relationship w/Stihl about twenty years ago , I purchased the farm boss 20 inch bar ,working as a firefighter we had many opportunities to use chain saws !I quickly realized they are not all created equal . My father had one ,my brother had one Stihl that is but me i was going to use the cheaper brands what a mistake . like other reviews said we would be replacing those other saws more often than not .When i finally got my Stihl it was a ta da moment never owned another brand since !! this year i decided to sell my Farm boss and buy a new model . long hours of bending over with my big saw was getting to be a pain in my lower back . S o i opted for a shorter bar in the 180 c 16 inch bar . What a pleasure this saw is light and just as tough as my old one . Stihl has always been and will always be the best chain saw made and ive tried them all KUDOS thank you for twenty plus years of my life of easy cutting ! ! firefighter Craig Curtis April 6, 2016
