Rated 5 out of 5 by Chain All Stihl chainsaws come equipped with a anti kick back chain. However the overall quality of this chain has issues. The biggest is the chain requires frequent sharpening after two to three hours use. I like to keep the chain sharp to optimism cutting. However the frequent sharpening will cause a shorter life and more frequent replacement. October 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy on the arms Bought this saw to supplement the 036 I bought back in 1998, what a difference in weight. I have been burning orchard wood and needed something a little easier to swing around........ this saw fits the bill on features and starting ease. Ran about 5 tankful's of 100LL aviation fuel w. 2 cycle oil and runs like my other Stihl, good. (ps. if you dont want your fuel to go stale run aviation fuel in small carburated engine equipment).I hit some twigs or vines or something and the chain jammed so had to mess with that out in the field to get it going again. Pulled the chain cover completely off to remedy and found the bar adjustment wheel with the gear teeth fell off the bar? After some research i think there is supposed to be a screw holding it on so might have to get that now.....don't think it was ever put on but don't know for sure. All in all very happy with the purchase. October 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Waiting to see.. I bought this saw to replace my old 16" Jonsreds that was made in 1982. What sold me on this Stihl model was the anti-vibration springs that support the body of the saw. I do not want long term nerve damage, and my hands had been feeling numb after an hour of using my 34 year old Jonsreds.I really like the vibration dampening, but my old saw, which is nearly the same size motor, was stronger. Maybe the piston rings haven't seated in the Stihl yet, or maybe I should have played with the air fuel mixture screws before writing this review...Also, having no grease lube port on the bar's tip suggests it wasn't meant to last long. Am I wrong? September 28, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Love the features. Hate the amount of problems I've had. I bought the saw on June 17th. I used it one afternoon with my son. I had a tree fall in my back yard August 7th. It ran for one tank of gas and would not start. Took it to the dealer, the carburetor was stuck. That was one week in the shop. I used it for a several weeks. Next, the ez start malfunctioned. Another week in the shop. The day after I got it out of the shop there was no compression. Scored cylinder (air leak in the crankcase). Three weeks in the shop. After I got it out of the shop it started to bog down under load and shutdown after 10 minutes. Took it into the shop where it is now (another week). I have only used stihl oils and cleaned the air filter. All work has been covered by warranty. I would rather be using it than driving it back and forth to the shop. September 25, 2016

Rated 1 out of 5 by I must have got the lemon Bought me a STIHL MS 211 C-BE chainsaw, never owned a STIHL before all my neighbors and friends swear by them so I needed a good dependable saw so I got me one. After 3 tanks of the high dollar fuel my saw stopped, it will run as long as you keep the choke on full but as soon as you take the choke off it dies. I took it back to where I purchased it and they tried to start it to no avail. Now the weather has started to cool down enough to get back into the woods my new chain saw is still in the shop, been there longer than I had it at home, and I am using the same old wore out saw that made me want the Stihl to begin with.
