Rated 4 out of 5 by easy to start. First stihl saw. Not hard to start. Hold with right hand and pull with left. 2 pulls starts right up. Took down 50 foot tree with 15" trunk no problems. Good saw April 11, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard Starting I own the MS290 and it is a bear to start. Just got it back from the dealer and they did a tune up. over 50 pulls later and still no start. Also has a pretty severe kick back when pulling the starter cord. Pulled right out of my hand. Back to the dealer tomorrow. So frustrating. Once started it is a great saw. Powerful and does what I need. Just won't start! March 31, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Heavy and Underpowered This saw is heavy and awkward to use. It is has plastic handles and a plastic crankcase. It has a weak attempt at a copy of a competitors air injection system, the air filter still gets very dirty. All Stihl saws seem to be dirty saws, they accumulate wood chips and grime in every nook and cranny making them difficult to service. The rubber anti-vibe mounts degrade upon contact with oil, unlike the steel springs in competitors models.Of course this saw has the classic 029/290/291 two second delay from when you hit the throttle and something actually happens. Bogs easily in wood and is heavy and bulky for such a small CC saw.Would not recommend to anyone, get a saw designed for professionals from any brand, even if it's used it will be better than a homeowner plastic toy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rough start to owning my first Stihl product Very first time out after purchasing this saw, it would not start. After approx. 7 pulls on the cord, the cord pulled right through the handle leaving the chainsaw useless for the entire weekend. Had to return it to the dealer for repair. March 18, 2015
