MSA 140 C-BQ
MSA 140 C-BQ is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very versatile saw Light weight, easy access under bushes/brush, operating time on battery is pretty good and can make quite a lot of cuts on a charge. Happy with unit in clearing off a acre plus of heavy/thick brush. It is on the pricey side for a small saw, in comparison to the much bigger/powerful gas powered saws. C.D. Zook

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underpowered Nice saw that is easy to use and muck quieter than a gas saw. Enough power to cut small branches up to about twp inches. Not enough power for much else. Expensive for what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw. I knew it was a great product. It exceeded my expectations and then some. Even cuts seasoned Walnut with ease. Makes my tree care and cleanup a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient chainsaw This saw has a surprising amount of oomph when you cut into a branch. I use it mainly for pruning up overgrown trees and shrubs. Very convenient no-tools adjustment for chain tension - wish my gas chainsaws had same feature. Saw is quite strong for the weight, and size makes it work great in tight spots. It's comfortable to hold and doesn't vibrate at all. Haven't used it a lot, yet, but very impressed so far.And it is soooo nice not to have to worry with getting a gas chainsaw to crank, which, as any homeowner can tell you, can be a pain. Especially if it is not used regularly. Now, just plug in the battery, and it's ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mini saw This saw very under rated! I have cut & trimmed trees & limbs up to 20” in diameter! Did have to recharge battery every 45 min of use. Also since I only have 1battery would have to put in freezer for about 10 min after use before I could charge! Just finished cutting down full size tree 30’ high x 20”+ trunk! Not recommended but possible! I had to recharge 6 times! And no issues with chain!! FYI for all you very skilled operators just KEEP chain out of dirt!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More like a pole saw than a chain saw I thought I had read up enough on this saw before buying it, but obviously I bought the wrong saw. It seems much like a souped up pole chainsaw for light branch work than a chainsaw that can do any real work. The chain is so small that it dulls easily when trying to cut into a 12" oak branch. Battery life is never an issue, The chain gives out long before the battery. Unfortunately the MSA 140 has only one bar/chain option. If you are just trying to replace a bow saw, this model will work. If you actually need a chainsaw, go with something bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for around the yard I love this little bad boy! Lots of cutting power relative to it's weight, quiet effortless operation, and very light weight. I was just a tiny bit disappointed that it bogged down as quickly as it did when cutting through a 14" piece of oak... but my expectations of Stihl products are high for a reason! All in all I imagine I'll be grabbing this one a lot more often than my gas powered Stihl because of the convenience and ease of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw! I bought the MSA 140 for my wife and she loves it! She can take care of everything herself. NO FUEL TO MIX! Just charge the battery. So far, she hasn't run out of battery. I mean she's not cutting a cord of wood.Although I love my gas big-boy Stihl, I have found myself using hers for trimming and for cutting smaller pieces of firewood to fit in our wood stove.A great purchase! We love it!
