Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything You'll Need in a Saw Purchased this saw from Hope Mills Saw and Mower after Hurricane Matthew for downed trees. This saw tackled a large (45') White Pine tree like it was a small scrub oak. I used this saw to limb the tree and to cut the tree into sections to load onto a front end loader. The saw never slowed down. It did everything I needed it to do and ran forever on a tank of gas.At the end of the day, I was completely satisfied with my purchase of this saw for all the above items, quality, dependability, power and value.I would recommend the Stihl MS 271 Farm Boss to anyone needing a chain saw.It's a good size saw that isn't too heavy by the end of the day and it provides all the power you need to cut.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Go Bigger!! If your looking to buy a chain saw like myself as a lifetime investment. Go Bigger!!This is a good saw for your average Joe/Homeowner!! But for some like myself thatlives in the rural area. This was my first purchase of a chain saw. Going on the advice of others was a Big Mistake!! Go ahead and spend the money and buy at least the commercial brand!! Go Bigger!! October 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw, would buy again It pulls a little harder than I thought it would, that's the only reason for not getting 5 stars. I like the saw and would buy it again.Now I just wish it would stay sharp longer. October 21, 2016

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not worth a plugged nickel Purchased new from robertsdale stihl dealer, a lot of internal parts missing, used less than a week and have it in another stihl dealers shop, informed that it is either rebuild or parts have been taken off to put on other chainsaws, beware when purchasing the last one the dealer has ms271 has been good but this one Will not cut a two inch saplings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Owned a farm boss for 10 years I've had a farm boss for ten years now. It was my first chainsaw. Family has a 560 acre farm and we heat 2 houses with wood furnaces in each one. Every spring I cut approx 20 cords of firewood. The saw is what it should be. Quality made and there when you need it! Been in the shop once. One new sprocket & 2 new bars in ten years. Will even give my fathers 460 with 20" bar a run for its money just not as powerful. Went with the 18" bar and cut limbs to 24" logs. It's been dropped in the creek, pinched in a falling tree, dropped off the back of the side by side at 25 mph and works like new. Stihl should keep making quality products! Buy it and be done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by All the power I needed Purchased after having an older commercialGrade saw with a larger motor. It performsGreat, Starts great, very fuel efficient, andI have had no need for more power yet ,and seems just as durable, "Love it"! October 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Power, but won't idle I've only used for one day. I used the Stihl fuel and bar oil. My only other Stihl is the MS171.From the first cut it was evident that the MS271 is built for power. It cut with ease through deadfall that was very hard and thick. While it wasn't fuel efficient on the first day, I assume it is like my MS171 and that it will improve with use. My issue with the MS271 is that it won't idle. Once off the trigger, what feels like a brake slowly engages to stop the chain, but then it pulls the motor all the way down to a stall. it is so frustrating to constantly need to pull the trigger and engage the chain between cuts. It reminds me of driving an old Mopar with a carburetor issue and having to shift into neutral an rev the engine at every stop. I'm going to have my dealer look at it, but that will put me down and out for a week.I will follow up with what I learn. October 17, 2016
