Rated 4 out of 5 by Bar Oil I'm running a MS271 w/ a 20" chain and bar. The saw is great to use, but when you are using it for a long period of time it doesn't seem like it's putting enough bar oil on the chain. There needs to be a bar oil adjuster on it. February 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First real saw I decided to step up to a Stihl saw from several other chain store carried brands. I have not been disappointed yet. The best saw I've ever had in my tool chest. I chose the 20" blade and it slices through the downed hardwood 24+" logs with little gripe and the smaller stuff even better. February 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for hardwood Felt this saw was underpowered for hardwood. Burned up cylinder after 8 hours of cutting even though I swapped out dull chains for sharp ones frequently. Expect better heat transfer / management February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw Got this saw for Christmas and have used it several times. It is easy to start even in cold weather, has plenty of power. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased This saw has done everything we needed on the farm. It always starts even on the coldest days. I would recommend having an extra chain if you are going to cut a lot of wood just to be able to a keep a sharp chain.Thi anti vibration feature is nice when cutting for hours without stopping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Running like a Stihl This is a follow up review to a problem with my 271 chain saw. It appears that it had a coil problem and once fixed the saw cranks and runs like a true Stihl.I also want to think my Stihl repersenitive for stepping in with a parts problem with my dealer.I am back and running now and thanks to all at Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Bought land that needed to be cleared for a new home to be built. This saw cut every tree it was put up against with ease. Very happy I made the choice to buy a Stihl saw. February 12, 2015
