Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw The ms 251 is a great saw. I received it from my father as a graduation gift from the 8th grade as I often used an axe to buck limbs to proper logs. It does a great job cutting through all types of wood, like a hot knife through butter. It has a whole lot o' power. I use it at least twice a week and it fires right up every time. The saw Is light enough I could use it all day to cut firewood. I highly recommend it to any young sawyer or anyone who wants a quality saw. April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Second Saw Have a 10 year old MS290 and needed a second saw for my son to use. I have used this one more than he has. Its lighter and faster. Easier to limb with and easier on my back. March 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what I expected from Stihl Bought the 251 chainsaw to replace a 20 year old Woodboss 024. The Woodboss would start on second pull at -30 degrees or 90 degrees. Ran like a champ. Cut everything from pine to black ash to oak. This 251 is hard to start, floods easily, doesn't have the power. I've purchased several Stihl products over many years and this is the only one I can't recommend. March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all around saw I bought this saw for my wife to use, it's light weight and power are perfect. I tried it myself, and compared to my 390, this would make anyone a great saw for the size and money. It will keep up with the big saw and you don't get tired by the end of the day carrying around a portable sawmill. March 11, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great first saw I recently bought this saw due to me needing a new saw. After research of different sizes, and brands I decided to go with the ms251, and what a good choiceI made. AnythingI need cut, can easily be cut with this saw, and the power is awesome. I recommend this to anyone February 18, 2014
