Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best available for anything short of daily professional use Had it for a couple months. Already been through about 5 gallons of fuel and it is not a fuel hog at all. Just heavy use. Followed the instructions and have had no loosening of the chain to date. Taken down several large trees and made firewood for next year and then some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts right up and has plenty of power I have no problem getting this saw started even with a weak a weak right arm. Once started there isn't a job that it can't handle. It is light enough to trim branches and yet has plenty of power for trees as wide as the bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money I love my new farm boss. The power is under rated. It will do all you ask of it and more. Only one problem was after only 4 starts the pull cord frayed out, but I noticed it before it broke. Took it back to the dealer and they replaced it in about 10 min. I believe it was a faulty cord and no reflection of the quality of the saw. I wouldn't trade my saw for anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What you would expect from Stihl I purchased the MS271 Farm Boss with the 20" bar. I only have 1-1/2 hours on it so far, but I'm familiar with Stihl saws and trimmers. If you're looking for a saw that will do all of the work you ask of it, short of being a professional lumber jack, this is it. Plenty of power. You don't even have to go full throttle to get through most logs. The Stihl engineers build these things to work hard. I was pleased to see that after 1-1/2 hours straight of cutting, I still didn't need to adjust chain tension, or add fuel, or chain oil yet. Nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right tool for almost every job I bought this saw to cut up a bunch of hard wood logs I acquired and "hot knife through butter" is an understatement. As Stihl is known for very easy to start, manipulate and very little fatigue. I cut for two hours and then went looking for more things to trim up. Great workhorse saw.
