Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have found this saw to be very temperamental I'm not impressed with this saw what so ever. It is very temperamental. I have had it n the shop and it does run better but it is still the worst saw I have ever owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to start I spend 30-45 minutes before I get frustrated and grab a hand saw to go the work. I have bought it back to where I purchased it and they say nothing is wrong. Find another brand that will start in less than 10 minutes

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in this saw. Small Chain makes paper thin cuts. I was severely disappointed in the performance of this saw. I thought I was making a step up from my MS 250 since the 211 has a little larger displacement and was the first saw on Stihl's list that showed an 18" bar as standard size. Boy was I wrong. 211 has a small narrow chain with no bite at all.I put a 250 sprocket on it and a 3/8" pitch aggressive chain and matching bar on it and made a decent saw out of It.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Saw I purchased this saw just prior to Hurricane Irma and I'm glad I did! Trees were down everywhere after the storm in Florida. This saw is absolutely great. I pushed this saw to its limits. I probably cut larger trees than it was meant to be used for, but the saw preformed flawlessly! I cut up a large oak tree that had fallen across our road and the MS211 cut through the hard oak like butter!The saw was also pretty easy on the fuel--which surprised me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from MS 211 It leaks oil because oil pump hose is in bottom of tank and oil seeps around grommet and fills case. when you get done drain oil out of saw or pay 100 bucks for dealer to change it. I just did it myself but not everybody is a saw mechanic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MS 211 Good saw but tough to start This saw runs great once you get it started. It will kick your butt while you mess with starting it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't start I have never been able to start this chainsaw without first having to take it to the shop. It floods with only three pulls, but the shop does not know what to do, as three different people have told me three different methods to get it started. Extremely frustrating to say the least. The manual says "so easy a child can start it" but that is the furthest thing from the truth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight with plenty of power for limbing I was specifically looking for a reliable, lightweight saw for limbing trees brought down by storms. The MS211 has enough power and it's light weight reduces fatigue, allowing more energy to be devoted to untangling the brush. I am very pleased with this Stihl product.
