Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for residential homeowner with wood stove. I purchased the saw because I had 16 face cord of logs delivered to get the wood cut and split for next year. My son and I decided this year we would do the work ourselves vs having it cut and split. The saw has worked great and in just a few weeks after work, we have gotten more than half of it done. The saw has started easy and runs smooth. Cuts through various hardwoods with ease. Would recommend this saw to regular wood burners!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bar run's dry / Have To Prime the engine to start The 271 run's great once it's running. BUT when the engine is cold { outside temp is in the 60s} I Have to prime the engine by taking the spark plug out and spray WD40 into the chamber to start it. But when it's running it's run's great and stay's running tell you shut it off. Lot's of power, fell's good in your hands and it's a dream working with it. But the chain run's to dry for my liking, I first noticed it after the first 5 min of using it. So I took it back to the dealer [ where I got it ]. And he said it's works just fine and I said this is not good. I still use it, and I like it a lot, but I wish it had a manual oiler, not a auto oiler. Sill on the first bar & chain after 16 cords so i guess it's ok. On that starting thing, When it's hot and run's out of gas and I fill the tank, with in the first 15 min it will start first pull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Power We were so used to using the Stihl MS 025 for everything when we purchased the MS 271 it felt almost too powerful. This saw made things so much easier and quicker. More power saves time and gets the job done more efficiently. Even though the MS 271 is larger than the MS 025 there isn't a huge difference in weight, which is a plus. This was a great purchase and I would definitely recommend this to anyone that needs an upgrade to their current chainsaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Dependable I've owned this saw for 3 years now and for the last 18 months i've used it nearly everyday as a tree service company. Never quit on me, adjusted carb only once, never had to change the air filter. I trust stihl products now and will continue to buy them in the future, in fact now i'm upgrading to the 661.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Farm Boss is very useful and works very well. I have used the Stihl Farm Boss chainsaw on dead ash trees quite a lot and am very pleased with the chainsaw performance.
