    Good Saw for the Money
    P&K Equipment in Hiawatha, Iowa was a very good dealer to purchase the Ms170 from. They were very helpful, and the service dept. took the saw into their shop and made sure it was setup and running right.

    Stronger than gas
    I can’t believe the amount of power in these little saws. Much more simply made than the gas versions we all love. I have built an entire coped log home with one of these without any problem. No matter how hard I uses these they never seem to die. Most useful is indoor work I usually don’t put oil in it as to not make a mess. No gas burning and the same power inside doing log/ hand hewn beam work. Amazing!!!!! Anyone that says these saws are not good are nuts! I have owned three of them ... read more all different sizes and I have put hundreds of hours on them and they are indestructible. If you have a plug-in socket near by these are great. Otherwise outdoors I’m still a gas saw man.

    Good "Little" Saw
    If you start looking around for an electric chainsaw you will quickly see two things. They look cheap and use special chains that may only have a cutting link every 10 links or so. NOT this saw it is a very legitimate saw. It uses the same bar and chain as the Stihl gas models. I do not do much cutting but I don't like dealing with cheap tools. This saw is basically the same as a gas 181 C-BE with an electric motor on it, and that is a good thing! Tool-less chain tensioning, automatic oiler, ... read more potential for longer bars and yellow chains. You get what you pay for, it is not as cheap as some electric saws but it is not a toy saw. I trimmed up an oak tree today (3/28/2015) and the wood was literately dripping wet and up to 10 inches in diameter and the saw had no trouble going through it. I just cleaned it up after cutting and I know it will be ready to go years from now whenever I need it again. This saw is oozing the typical Stihl quality that I have built the rest of my homeowner power tools around, gas and electric. If you want an electric saw for a homeowner look no further. I would buy it again but I will probably not have too as it will last a long time.

    Great light saw for trimming
    I really like this saw for light duty around the home. The only downside is that the battery takes a long time to charge. Could you design a fast quick rate charger?

    Really powerful
    I was surprised at how powerful the saw was. Very high quality. It cut through the limbs like there were butter. I usually use a heavy duty Stihl gas saw but after 10 years of service I gave it to my son.

    16" Electric Chainsaw: A Sturdy, Quiet, Tree and limb eater.
    The MSE 210 C-BQ has been great! I have run this saw with my 2,000 watt rated super-quiet inverter generator and from the house and barn electric. I like the nice handling and ergonomics plus all its safety features. The list price may seem high, but if you buy it, you will not regret it. The performance is way ahead of any other electric chainsaw I have used. Built to last, and let you do the job safe, yet fast.

    Everything I could want in an electric chainsaw.
    I am a full time woodturner. I use a chain saw virtually 360 days a year. My shop is at my home in town and the neighbors have called the police on me when I used my gas engine Stihl ms290 too much. It has the power to handle a 18" log if necessary. Not quite up to my gas saws on bigger logs ... but it can easily handle them without the police showing up. I've had this saw for about 18 months and did have one problem that put the saw down for a few days. Stihl bent over backwards and did ... read more somersaults to get me back in business because they realized my need for daily use. I have never written a review for a product before, but felt that I should share my great experience with this saw. I use Stihl gas saws for my heavier work away from the house, but if necessary the ms250e would do most of that as well. I hate commercials on television because most of them are exaggerated bs. But, when the Stihl commercials come on it makes me feel like I'm part of something because I am proud of the saws that I own. Also, kudos to my dealer.

    Cut instantly, my take on the saw
    Purchased for the need to have a saw ready to go instantly . Must have 20 amp outlet . Purchased with a 20" bar and yellow chain. Experienced with stihl gas saws so I can share my experience with this comparatively. It's lighter and doesn't have that natural downward weight of the big gas saws. It feels extremely light . after several cuts non stop it did trip the red button on the saw. Just waited 30 seconds and started again. I find that if I cut a few cuts then move the wood to give it a ... read more minute break it doesn't trip off. It's only cut off once . I rate it to do the same work as the gas saws but without the need to fuel up. It has a window on the side for bar oil and the chain adjusts easily. This saw compliments my collection and is my first choice for use at home. I feel good about using the saw due to it being so quiet and non emissive . Great for use in the neighborhood and not disruptive . I have about 10 hours use so far and wanted to share my experience .
