Rated 1 out of 5 Junkfault I bought this saw, followed all the direction to the T and after 4 saw failures I say this saw is junk. When I made the purchase I told them that I was going to be cutting some large wire oak and needed a saw with a 20'' cut. They showed me the MS271. I got it and the piston had melted down 4 times during use.I am calling this one "JUNK" and do not buy this saw. May 21, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw I bought my Ms 271 about 2 months ago. Its been a great saw and ive never had any problems with it except that it doesnt get enough oil on the guide bar and chain. Its gotten hot enough to where the paint is chipping off the bar and the metal is turning a bronzy blackish color from getting so hot. Other than this i would definitely recommend this saw to anyone that just needs to cut wood for the winter and clean up around the house. May 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Christmas present for a new homeowner My wife purchased this chainsaw for me over the holidays. I had an issue at first with the chain oil system, but after some playing around I was able to get it working correctly. It sat on the shelf from December until April because of the winter this year in NY. She started immediately after reading the directions and this thing is an animal. Stihl products are phenominal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value Purchased this chainsaw over 3 years ago for the heavier cutting that needs to be done on our 2+ acres. Even with infrequent use, it starts up in less than 10 tries after sitting in its case for a year or more. Just had some trees pruned, and kept the branches and trunks to cut up for splitting firewood. I lightly sharpened it between each tank of gas, and it continued to cut like new through a cord and a half of wood. The vibration on this saw is the mildest I've ever used. I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands and this saw enabled me to cut for 15 minutes before having to stop! It was a little pricey, but delivers what Stihl claims! May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw is just great It cuts thru wood like a knife thru butter lol. This is by far the best chain saw I have ever owned. And trust me I have owned alot of them over the years. April 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard Working Saw I bought my MS271 a couple of months ago before they had it as the "Farm Boss" again on the website. I have only put around 4 tanks through it so it is still breaking in and I am starting to notice the power increase and motor smoothing out.Even during this break in it made short work of a 2ft diameter green hackberry. With a freshly sharpened blade it didn't flinch in this rock hard wood. It starts within 3 cranks every time and never fails to cut. I love the vibration reduction since it helps reduce fatigue. This is an all around great saw that fits in with the other Stihls on the farm that have been around for years. I am expecting my Stihl will last just as long. Keep making great products and making them in the USA! April 27, 2015
