Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Saw This is my first Chain Saw. I am amazed. The biggest tree I cut down was about 10" diameter. It cut the tree like a hot knife through butter. Light-weight and easy to handle. Starting the saw is amazingly easy. May 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent little saw I owned one of these saws for about 2 years. I used it as my lightweight saw in combo with a larger 60cc saw.Crazy easy to start and once the carb was adjusted (after a little break-in period) it had pretty decent power. Note: The 211 has an adjustable carb.I'll be buying one of the 211's again for sure. April 21, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw EZ Start is not so easy. I purchased this saw 2 years ago for small clean-up jobs. The power and quick chain adjustment tool are awesome. The EZ start on the other hand is a pain. I have had to replace my pull cord due to people using the saw and pulling on it like a normal pull string. The amount of force needed to "wind" the ez start system IMO is not much less than it would take to pull this small saw in the first place. Maybe this would be good for someone very elderly. My 70 year old father used this saw last week and wanted to throw it away because he was not used to the ez start system. Everything else about this saw is awesome. March 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw!!!! I have had my saw for over a year. It's the ms-211c. I had my property logged and had 55 acres of tops to clean up. The saw has had no issues and has probably over 250 hrs on it. Have only ran Stihl brand bar oil and mix in it. Chains hold up well too. Bought three chains and all have plenty of life left. I only use the saw on stuff about 6" in diameter and smaller. I like the quick caps and the tool less adjustment of the chain. I clean the saw after each session. March 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Chainsaw I'm a novice at cutting trees and needed something to thin out the trees on my property. Many of the trees are less than 15 inches in diameter; thus, I did not need a larger chainsaw. I chose this because it's lightweight and the Easy2Start technology seemed intriguing. I also selected the dealer (Henry Co Co-Op - TN) because they are extremely knowledgeable and can perform service. The Easy2Start is a godsend. Although I've only had this chainsaw two months, there have been NO problems with starting and cutting. It does well with mid-size trees up to 15 inches. I even dropped at 21 inch tree; however, it took a lot of work. This is a perfect chainsaw for someone like me that needs a cord of firewood, or for occasional clearing. I have a torn rotator cuff on one shoulder and recovering from rotator cuff surgery on the other; yet, have been able to easily use this chainsaw. Stihl is a great brand, and the Co-Op is a superb dealer. February 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good chainsaw with some quibbles This chainsaw starts and runs reliably. However, I have had issues with the oiling mechanism. It seems to not oil the chain very much at all, which contributes to chain wear, bar wear and engine wear. When I sharpen the chain, I also clean up the entire saw as well as the grooves in the chain bar and the oil holes in the bar. When I run the saw without the chain/bar oil comes out slowly but not in very great quantities. On the positive side, the anti-vibration mechanisms on this chainsaw are extremely effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this saw I have run 6 tanks of gas through this saw in the short time I have owned it. I can only say good things about it. This is the first Good chain saw I have ever owned and I have owned a lot of bad ones. Makes cutting fun. November 27, 2015
