    a very surprised first time user
    My first time using this saw was simply amazing. I had a bunch of pecan wood to work up that will eventually end up in my smoker cooker. This saw went through all of it like butter and it was so easy to handle. I really liked the idea of no more filling it with fuel and when I was done with the job I just cleaned it up, put it in its case knowing that it would be there and ready to go for the next job. I no longer go out in the woods and cut several cords of wood and my saws no longer get the ... read more use that they used to.Now I leave them sit for long periods of time with out using them and when I do its always a hassle to get the gas ones going again no matter how much care I took in putting them away. ( my other saws are not Stihl ) maybe thats the problem with the gas ones. Although I have other Stihl equipment this is my first chainsaw.and I simply love it. It has more power than you would believe for an electric. Uses the same chain thats on a gas model the automatic oiler seemed to hardly use any oil, the tool less chain adjuster, and the fact when you let off the trigger the chain stops instantly are some really good features of this saw. There is not one con I could say about this saw except maybe for the price. It is expensive but when you get this saw in your hands and start using it you wont care that you had to put out the big bucks for it. The old saying you get what you pay for stands true for this saw. Hey, its THAT GOOD!! Thanks Stihl for a simply great saw!!!!

    The preferred saw of professionals
    I'm a professional ice sculptor who relies on a chainsaw on average over 32 hours a week. As a career sculptor for the past 36 years, I've tried all kinds of electric brand chainsaws and none can hold a candle to STIHL They've always been the most reliable, and needed the least amount of repair. Other saws were either too weak, or were constantly breaking down; needing new on/off switches or major internal part. By far the STIHL is the best, All I have to do is maintenance, replacing the bar, ... read more brushes or drive sprocket for the chain. Hats off to STIHL....The brand name well earns the capitalized letters!

    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.

    The MSE-250 is great if you have electric power access
    I picked up my MSE-250 a few weeks ago and have used it on a downed tree in my back yard. The saw is awesome in that it has great power and gets the job done quickly and is a dream to handle.

    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.

    Great for Average Homeowner
    I use a chainsaw primarily to cut firewood and fell the occasional dead tree on our 1/3 acre homesite. Although I have long experience with gas-powered chainsaws, I sometimes went six months without using mine, and consequently it would be hard to start and require more time nurturing it than using it. I traded in my gas-powered Stihl for this one and have been amazed at its power, cutting speed, light weight, maneuverability, and durability. I only need a 25' extension cord to reach our ... read more firewood stack, and with the 100' cord I use for my electric lawnmower I can reach all corners of our lot. I bought the 16" bar and have cut oak logs two feet in diameter with no problem. I maintain chain sharpness with a manual file and don't have to worry about fuel mixtures or winter storage. I've been using it for over a year and believe its superior construction and my infrequent usage ensures that it will give me many years of trouble-free service. I recommend this model strongly.

    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.

    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?
