Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value I have owned the farm boss for a few years now and all I can say is that it performs every time. By no means am I a professional, cutting a couple cords of firewood per year along with property cleanup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for its size! Just picked one of these up yesterday and put it thru its paces today 2/14/17.Wanted a bit smaller saw for the "light" work but this saw thinks it a "big boy".Was cutting white oak, a very dense hard wood, I had the dealer put a 16" bar and chain on this saw and it cuts great. Even when you bury the bar!. I have a MS311 for the heavy stuff but may sell it and pick up another 271!Great job Stihl! Another fine product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from an owner and a servicing technician's view. I purchased this saw soon after being hired at my local STIHL dealer. I have used this saw extensively and it has never let me down. Starts on the third pull every time. I still havent had one come into my shop for repairs. Overall a very sturdy, lightweight, beast of a saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable Needed a dependable saw since buying new home on acreage. Farm Boss has plenty of power for knocking down unwanted trees and cutting up firewood. Saw starts every time, a nice change of pace from some others I've had. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "What a Stihl " Just installed a new 18 inch bar and chain, the saw cuts great, lots of power and easy to start. I had a 20 inch bar on it previously, cuts and handles bunch better with an 18 inch bar and chain.
