Rated 5 out of 5 by My 1st STIHL saw I bought the MS 271 with an 18" bar & chain one week later it was the soul saw I used it to take down and cut up an pecan tree that was 85' high and 41" in diameter. So as you can imagine I put it through it's paces, the only thing that went less than perfect was one chain derailment, and that was my fault when I got the saw in a slightly twisted high speed bind. It was easy and intuitive to re-install the chain and adjust the bar. I do have 16' of tree trunk laying on the ground that this 18" bar just will not reach through so I'll have to borrow my neighbor's MS 660 with his 30" bar.The power and performance of my MS 271 saw was superior to any saw in this size range I have used to date, it appears well engineered.One thing to pass onto you if you are considering this saw, I always ran out of fuel before I ran out of bar & chain oil, this is a GOOD THING. I would hate to ruin a chain or bar because it ran out of lube, It actually seemed that I could have run two tanks of fuel per chain lube refill, but I didn't try I filled both fuel and chain lube every tank of gas, as you should.I could only be more pleased if the saw was less expensive, but I know if I want a high quality saw that is well engineered I will pay a higher price... I would buy it again it's worth it! September 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1ST Stihl product This is my first Stihl product. I have owned other chainsaws in the past. I like the fact that the dealer preps the saw so it wont be a dud like some of the big box store saws.I was looking for a new saw and everyone I asked said get a STIHL.I picked the saw based on the dealers recommendation on my needs.I do run the premix STIHL non ethanol gas and oil so there shouldn't be any problems down the road from ethanol.The saw starts as it should, and has a nice sound to it.(LOVE 2 stroke engines sound and smell). I have felled and bucked a few medium trees on my property and it just works as it should.A little heavy (18"bar) but plenty of power. The anti vibration works very well!!A great saw and am looking forward to when it breaks in.This will NOT be my last STIHL product. September 4, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by All the saw I need Great product a little pricy but worth the money. Stop replacing your outdoor machines every few years.Stihl chainsaws blowers and trimmers last many years longer than any other product. Absolutely worth what you paid for them August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Where have you been all my life! I live in the northeast and our area is chocked full of sycamore trees, and i mean big house crusher ones. Through the years i've always been a little cheap when it comes to buying outdoor equipment, buying the cheapest lawn mower, cheapest weed wacker, etc. I've owned 2 homelites 16" and 20" and have done battle with many sycamores over the years. It would take those saws a long time to get through those trunks, slice after slice. NOW i have a chainsaw with a REAL POWERBAND with the MS271, and man do you get what you pay for, let me tell you.No more boggy overheated underpowered saws for me anymore. It's like going from a go-cart to an indy race car. I'll be replacing all of my outdoor equipment with Stihl products from now on. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Third Generation My grandfather bought one of the first farm bosses, leading my dad to buy one a decade later, they both still have these saws and both still use them. When it came time for me to buy a saw, I knew there was no other choice but to buy a Farm Boss. It has been even better than I expected. The only problem I have had so far in 5 years is that the August 18, 2015
