Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, powerfull and reliable. Wood is our only source of heat. I need reliability. Stihl delivers. September 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I can't believe the difference in The Stihl and the other saws I own 10X better I never thought there would be this much difference in chainsaws. I have two other saws by different manufactures my 16" actually work real well but it was no longer made since 2006 it started good but can't get parts like a air cleaner etc. My 18" another manufacture is very temperamental hard to start runs for awhile and quits. It has to sit for 20 to 30 minutes in the shade to restart. And it bogs down even on small logs. Since we are using wood to heat now. When I go up to the mountains to cut large trees my saws wouldn't cut it. My buddy that lets me cut on his land has a Stihl Farm Boss and he would have to get it out so I could load my large gooseneck trailer. I bought this and cut up two loads of logs which average 20 to 25 feet long and the saw starts easy cuts like I'm cutting butter no bogging down and very comfortable to use. I have had 3 back operations 2 of them fusions, so I know what feels good. The MS271 Farm Boss Stihl 20" is worth every penny it costs. Don't waste your money on anything less than a Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Farm Boss knocks it out of the park.. I would like to first of all recommend to read the manual before operation. I cannot stress enough to read the MANUAL...Had a dead line to move trees for a container being shipped. The first day one old saw and a small 009L Stihl. Well I got worked to death on the old saw until I grabbed the 009. Already worn out and cutting trees. Decided to contact local Stihl dealer. Only one open on Sunday was Fishers in LaPorte. Read all the specs and looked hard at the Farm Boss. Purchased the Farm Boss and got to the site and had severe issues starting. OK now read the starting instructions. These units flood easy. Talk about a beast cutting trees. Cut 4 trees in 2 hours and one had a nail in the tree. Not so worn out. As being a mechanic for 30 years you use the right tool for the job.. The Farm Boss is the right tool. September 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable tool that never dissapoints This is the third Farm Boss that I have bought. The first one got borrowed and never returned. The second was stolen out of my work shed. I quickly replaced this saw. We are into hurricane season here in SC.I use this saw mainly at our 2500 acre hunt club. it has taken care of storm damage and fire wood.If you follow the correct starting procedures, it will start right up. It has plenty of power to tackle anything . September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good power for home use. Had a 610 McCullough for 30 plus years. Great power but heavy. 710 Stihl not quit as powerfull but lighter and therefore easier to use for long periods of time. I highly recommend for homeowner use. Great saw. September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Saw I've had this saw for a few years now and with care it runs every time without any issues. September 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight saw I love this saw!! Starts with no issues and runs like a champ. It cuts with ease. I said it was light because I am bigger and stronger than most who write reviews so for me it is light and I will run it for at least three hours. I am glad I bought this saw and I will only buy Stihl period. September 15, 2016
