Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Saw I bought this saw after reading many reviews on the internet and talking to alot of different people. It has very good power and cuts better than any saw I have ever owned or used. The large chain makes quick work of larger trees and will even rip cut when necessary to split extremely large pieces in halves or quarters. I highly recommend this saw to anyone who cuts alot of wood. October 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw is a monster My brother and I went into a Stihl shop and both walked out with brand new saws. He bought the 391, and I bought the 311. Mine keeps up with his just fine. There is very little noticeable difference between the two. This saw is a monster! October 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by simply the best saw the average outdoors man My grandpa bought the MS 311 I have now. It became mine after he passed. I had the MS 290 farmboss which it to was a great saw. The 290 doesnt hold a candle to the snappy throttle on the 311. I bought a piece of property that needed cleared with a bunch of different trees on it. This saw didn't flinch once at any kind of wood. From maple to hedge it cut it all. My uncle has bought 2 sense he used mine and heats with wood mostly hedge. I cant say enough about it just a great all around saw October 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovin it so far Bought this saw because of the reviews I read elsewhere. I already know that Stihl is the best, but this saw has some anti-vibration technology built in to it I was told, sure seems to be the case. I read several of these reviews where people have trouble starting them. Stihls always start if you use the right technique, Set the choke and give it 1 or 2 pulls and you will hear it pop, then release the choke and give it a yank. Same with all the stihl saws I ever owned or used, weed eaters too. This is a great saw, cant go wrong with it. October 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of power great product Originally this was more saw than I wanted. But after using I'm glad I purchased . Use it falling and firewood Has yet to let me down . Always starts and never bogs down! October 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the investment I bought a stihl 311 and of course it cost me but it was an investment. We burn wood for heat so i needed a machine that could do it. I tried other brands that were cheaper but i discovered that a lot of them are "weekend warrior" saws. For those who burn wood Stihl is the way to go. It is an investment, meaning they are expensive, but it is worth it, trust me.I am a stihl man now. My weed eater is sthil, and going forward, all my eauiptment will ve stihl. The quality is there forsure.The 311 is a mean a@# saw to say the least.Chad. Kentucky September 19, 2015
