Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing chainsaw. Amazing chainsaw. I was in the market for a new chainsaw. I had so many problems with my old one, that I had enough with it. So I researched brands, as I did when buying my weedeater. I picked Stihl then for a reason, as I did this time too. However, I really wasn't sure which one to get. I had narrowed the choices down to the 250/251, 271, and 291. I really didn't need the power of the 291, nor the weight of it. The 250/251 were cheaper and weighed less, but they're only 5 cc larger than my old saw. So I picked the 271, and boy am I glad I did. It practically weighs the same as my old saw, but can cut stuff more than twice as fast. Love the fuel and chain oil caps, and the fact I don't have to use a scrench or the strength of 10 men to tighten or loosen them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent saw It starts easily, has plenty of power, cuts dry oak very fast. We heat our house with a wood burning stove so a good saw is a must. The Farm Boss is not heavy and is a pleasure to use. I am looking forward to many years of service from this fine saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth, powerful and easy to start Mine has the 18" bar. It has more than enough power to make short work of everything ive used it on. My only issue now is finding more work to use it on. Highly recommened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to start and easy to continue starting after stopping I bought this Farm Boss in Avalon Ace hardware in Orlando, FL. The instruction to start/operate at Ace was excellent and the product is fantastic, reliable quality. It has power and very easy to start again after putting it down after several minutes. Delighted with this new machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again The only issues I have had were on the first tank of gas it took several pulls to start. On about the 8th tank of gas, the saw is well broken in, and starts like a champ easily every time. I have not owned a chain saw in almost 30 years of living in the city, but when I bought my ranch, I did research and settled on the Stihl 271 with a 20 inch bar. I am very happy for the purchase, and I know that this saw is going to last. I mainly cut central Texas yaupon and post oak, and while I may not be pushing the saw too much, I have had to cut a couple larger oaks. I regularly use the saw in very hot and dry conditions and have had no spark issues. The weight is fine for the size of the saw, and really after a while it's a reasonable weight for the size of the saw

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect amount of torque for a light saw that can handle a 20" bar with no issue at all Awesome saw that not only starts on the first pull but can cut threw wood like a hot knife threw butter
