Rated 1 out of 5 by Poorly designed My saw has broke more times than it should for a one year old saw! I have replaced the brake band 4 times and its broke now! I have replaced the spool for the pull rope 2 ! The choke has never work right from the time I got it! The top cover crack the first month ! November 19, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by nice saw but under powered Overall I like this saw. I was disappointed in how often the saw bogged down while making a cut. A neighbor suggested I go with the 16" bar versus the 18 that Stihl recommends. Also the off switch will randomly stop working. there is a metal connection that vibrates loose so the switch doesn't make contact to ground out the motor. I took it back to the dealer thinking something broke off but they said it was "fine" with no missing parts. I used it a couple times and the metal piece came off again. i may try super gluing it to make it stay. Either poor design or lousy dealer help. November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw At 63 my old saw was too hard to start, I tried a battery saw, waste of time and money. Finally went down the street a mile to my local Stihl dealer and bought this the other day. Starts like a dream once you know how to, plenty of power, light, easy2start works great. November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super easy to maneuver saw This chain saw is very light and easy to maneuver around. It is not the fastest cutting or most powerful but for the weight and ease of use it is great for every job except cutting 5 cords of wood a day or cutting really big trees. You can't go wrong with this saw. It's great for everything around the house and firewood cutting. November 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by don't buy I have had this saw for about a year and it has spent more time in the shop then in my possesion.The dealer I bought the saw from are incompetent and have yet to fix the problem with the linkage system and the throttle.You either can't get it to start or you can't turn it off or it will not idle.Because my local dealer has turned my saw into there own little science experiment by bending linkages at odd angles instead of fixing the problem parts I'm now stuck with them for warranty because no other dealer wants to work on a saw that has been manipulated like mine has. Basically i have a expensive paper weight that I have never gotten to truly use. I will never buy another stihl and I definitely will never recommend any stihl product to anyone that is not a hated enemy October 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this saw I had used popular saw brands in the past. When necessity insisted that I have a dependable saw, Stihl was the brand that continuously came up. This has been an amazing saw. Always starts, always works. Thank you very much!!!!'n October 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good home-line saw I just bought a new property with lots of trees/wooded acrage.I had probably 30-40 trees ranging from 8"-20" in diameter and 50+ feet tall that needed to be cut down.I was concerned to have a big enough saw to do the task. After the first couple cuts, I was sure I made the right choice. Granted, my friend has a Stihl Farm Boss and cuts noticeably faster than mine, however, mine handles the task very very well!If you are budget consious and are a home owner with lots of sawing needs, but still want a saw that can handle 99% of what you throw at it, this is an excellent match!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by This Product is Great for those older persons with phyiscal limitations on starting and refilling I am 69 years old and the old brisk crank rope is just to much for my shoulders and arms. I have an 028 Stilh saw that is still a hoss but it is heavy and the cranking really gets me. The MS 251 C-BE is a dream and gets the job done. I can run it a full day without any issues. It has allowed me to continue cutting my firewood. This is something I enjoy. October 23, 2015
