Rated 5 out of 5 by light weight fun trimming saw. Ive used many saws for many years. This 211 is my favorite as a small tree or trimming saw.Its easy on your back. It feels good in your hands. It runs & sounds good. It makes the work fun. The only annoyance is the fussy oil filler cap to aline.If you want to cut faster get a larger saw. I like my 441 as a fast big wood saw. Ms221 is spring mounted like my 441 pro saw & runs similar! July 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great saw.....except I've used the MS211 for about two years now. I hate it. It leaves a puddle of chain oil every where it sets for any length of time. The no-tool caps for oil and gas are also irritating because they are difficult to get properly aligned and sealed. An unnecessary complication to a system that worked fine. Too much plastic and doo-dads and not enough common sense engineering and metal. Very disappointed as I had years of great service from the previous Stihl saw. It starts, runs and cuts good. Problems above ruin the experience of the good points. April 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard working saw. Used the saw to drop 4 150 ft. trees with the trunks 16" wide. The saw worked perfect, started every time...never stalled. The saw is a work horse, well worth the money! March 18, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by pretty average saw, overpriced for what it is Only cuts softwood okay if the chain is freshly sharpened. After one tree the chain is dull rendering it useless, struggle to cut butter. Chain is prone to jamming and cannot be pushed hard, underpowered. Will not handle hard wood, the chain is always dry, poor oil pump. And very overpriced for what it is. Wouldn't recommend March 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by starts easy I think this saw ms 211 is overrated. 12 to 14" max blade on this saw . Wish I'd have bought the 18". February 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw for the money I recently purchased the MS 211 a month ago and since then have cut up several trees for firewood. I have a very tender back and have great difficulty starting another brand saw. This one has the auto assist feature and makes it a dream to start. It runs smoothly and the chain adjust is a welcome change to screw drivers and wrenches. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating was that its a little under powered. However with a little finesse and proper application it seems to cut through anything a 16" bar can handle. This is one great little saw. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by just awell put together saw very well put together saw price wise and preformance February 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Under Power I bought this saw as opposed to 250 mainly because of price. I bought the saw wanting to cut firewood for personal use and could get away with only needing a 16" bar. After reading reviews I thought this would suffice for occasional personal cutting and I would save some money.The saw does really well for starting but if you are used to the old fashion hard cranking saws it takes some getting used to and I felt like I was going to break it when I began. However, being a STIHL this of course didn't happen.On smaller logs 14" or smaller the saw performs great. However once you begin to use up the entire cutting length the saw begins to bog down. I also switched out the low kickback chain for a regular chain and this makes the saw even less enthusiastic to work full bore.I think that if you are cutting small wood, 14" or less, this saw is fantastic. I do NOT think that this saw should be marketed as a 16" bar as you cannot use the entire bar and expect the saw to keep up with the demand. February 12, 2015
