MS 271 FARM  BOSS®
MS 271 FARM BOSS® is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 427.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mid range saw that keeps up the Stihl and farm boss reputation Had this saw for about a year and I put it threw its paces last fire wood season.i cut about 11 cords of hard wood with it and it's never slowed down or gave me any difficulty what so ever with general maintenance.it runs a 18" bar with ease and a 16" inch bar turns it into a beast.i have four Stihl saws ,the 271 is the most used out of all of them.from felling to limbing this is the saw that does it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the farm boss! I am impressed with the saw so far. I completed the engine break in as instructed and the saw runs better and better every time I use it. It cuts through 16in oak logs at half throttle with ease. The saw is great on fuel also, it took lots of cutting to go through the first 3 tanks of fuel. My only disappointment is that it did not come with a 20" bar on it. Mine came with an 18" bar but almost all other ms271 farm boss saws I have seen come with a factory 20" bar. I am very pleased with the saw and I would definitely recommend it to anyone seeking a good all around saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is one get it done machine. This 271 Farm Boss kicksbottom. Sorry if you cant use my review but it does kick bottom, be proud Stihl you produced a modern tool worthy of you name. The plastic housings......ask me next year about them, I will tell you how they held up. I am an Aviation, Jet Turbine Mechanic...I am hard to please and I hold no quarter in telling you exactly how I feel about your product. I have owned some of your failures....now I own a chainsaw that seems, so far, to hold to your claims of performance. I have recently purchased one of your FS 38 weed trimmers.....the power to weight ratio is superb.....let ya know what i think of it next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chainsaw I was able to obtain the MS271 Farm Boss in a sale and the chainsaw is great. Stihl has not let me done in the quality and reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great saw I grew up on a farm and have cut wood all my life, have used all kinds of saws over the years. My wife bought me the MS271 Farm Boss with a 20" bar for Christmas. First thing I did was drop a big thirty five foot locust tree. It ate it up! Starts fine - oils great-no issues. I bought a second chain for it and cut all kinds of fire wood with it, that size is a little big for small trimming but just right for most jobs...I couldn't be happier with it.
