Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw This was the third chain saw that I have owned and the first one that would start every time. My inability to start any chainsaw is legendary and had become a family joke. Now I can brag about my new abilities! October 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great easy to use saw This is the second MS 251 C-BE chain saw I own. I had to have one at my lake home and had already purchased one a few years ago for my permanent residence. I know this was a great saw. I used it the day I bought it to cut several downed trees after a bad storm. This saw is very easy to start and operate. It cuts the wood very easy. It is not too heavy but big enough to get job done. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I love my new saw it starts so easy I thought it was a push button start.. It cut likes a hot knife thru soft butter.. More than enough power and it's worth every penny. It makes you want to keep cutting and cutting..It throws so many wood chip a beaver would be in love... I'm definitely a born again stihl man and will spread its gospel. September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best all around saw there is! If you are looking for an all-around saw for multiple uses around the house, property, etc. this saw is for you.Decent weight. Excellent power. Starts like a dream.Typical stihl quality. You can't go wrong with this saw. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start I replaced a 20 year old Stihl model 039 with a MS251-C. The old 039 was a monster to start and the weight of it would quickly wear you down. The MS251-C is so easy to start and seems much lighter and better balanced. The vibes from the 039 would make my hands numb but the new saw is practically vibration free. Overall I think Stihl is the best saw out there. August 2, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by The "Quick Chain Adjuster" doesn't work I bought this saw brand new. After about an hour of use I noticed the chain needed to be adjusted. I tried turning the "Quick Chain Adjuster" but it was absolutely stuck. I brought the saw back to the store and they said it has to go to warranty repair. Too bad I needed the saw to remove several large trees across my yard. I wish I had bought a saw with basic features. July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw for all jobs. It is such a treat to pick up the Stihl saw and have it start on the first pull. I have 2 "brand X" saws sitting in my garage that were used about three times each, then opted for an early retirement. The Stihl was a little more expensive, but good saws ain't cheap, and cheap saws ain't good. In the future, when I buy new small engine machines, it had better have "Stihl" on it prior to coming into my garage. July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Long Overdue After too many years and several cheaper chainsaws from Big Box stores, etc I took my wife's advice: "Spend the money and get a chainsaw that works for you". I went with the Stihl MS251 and love the saw and appreciate the personal attention from the dealer.What do I like about it? Three things mainly:1. It works. All the time. Sounds basic but it's not true with other saws.2. It has perfect combination of power and ease of handling.3. Tool-less adjustment of chain tension. Along with this, it is super easy to replace the chain, or just get in there to clean out all the crud that accumulates while sawing.My initial use was to cut up a pile of old telephone poles in my yard from a previous owner. Over 85 poles. With a carbide blade, I am almost finished today and the Stihl chainsaw has been a champ. July 19, 2014
