Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rookie User Purchase I am a rookie saw user, my dealer Dunn Hardware helped me understand my needs and directd me to a couple of options. I chose this saw because of my intermittent use , that benefits from its multiple features. I am confident that my purchase of a higher featured Stihl prevented me from needing to purchase two inexpensive / inferior lesser brands to last me a lifetime. Stihl keeps their local dealers educated and equipped....buy local ....its good for everyone....unapologetic business plug: Stihl Dealer Dunn Hardware Trafalgar, Indiana Rocks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comparing to Poulan - Struggles with Power & Tool-less Chain Tightening So-So I'm comparing this to a Poulan Pro 16" at less than half the cost. This Stihl struggles to go full throttle. Took it back the day I bought it and "tech" says that's all you'll get from it at full throttle. It basically sounds like it is grunting/lightly sputtering and that's what the tech said is normal. Therefore, it lacks what I'd expect to be full power. Also, I took a chance and bought the model with the "tool-less" chain tightening. Poulan model I have is terrible, won't hold chain tight. The Stihl system is much better, but the chain loosens sooner than I'd expect and not due to the chain stretching. Not as solid as the (slower) old-school tightening system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best little chainsaw I have yet to find. Bought the saw 8-23-2017 just before Hurricane Harvey knocked down 6 trees in my yard and numerous large limbs. So far it has made short work of 4 of the trees and about half the limbs. The only thing scary about this saw is that it has Bigger Brothers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts like butter I bought this chainsaw for my home use. I selected this particular model because of the lightweight and for the quick, tool-less chain adjustment. I was able to trim my oak trees with branches diameters up to 12 inches.Super easy to start. Just make sure to set it on choke, give it a couple of pull and then set it to half choke and it'll start at the next pull or two. It doesn't come with a prime button so that doesn't pose a problem at all. I had researched on other brands and they seem to have so many toggles, buttons, etc...so this stihl only has a throttle lever and choke/run toggle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs well, needs more power. This saw it's great for saplings and that's about it, for the cost, I think you should get something with more power behind it. It likes to bog down when you cut through anything bigger than 6-8inches in diameter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is an excellent product I bought this chainsaw because it is easy enough for my wife to start.It cranks on the first pull ,and does'nt take as much pull as i'm used to.
