Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw Have head mine awhile. Always starts easily. The saw just chews through wood with it's own weight. I carry a file I bought from my Stihl dealer with me. A touch up every now and then keeps the cutters working. This saw cuts all kinds of woods with ease. I've cut dead wood with with no issues. It may be heavy for some but I find the weight helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly champion. I've been using chainsaws for many decades, and I have never seen one that was as "user friendly" as the Farm Boss! It is by far the easiest, well built, comfortable chainsaw I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had my saw for a year. I’ve cut my wood a couple of cords and a couple for a friend. I cut down a huge oak tree for my son that was 40” around so I used all of my bar. It was the only time I thought I need more power but it got it done. I also like the new Stihl chain file. It is so easy to keep my saw sharp. Always runs no matter how cold or hot it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good chainsaw, not easy to start. Have had the saw for about a month. Using Stihl fuel but it’s getting harder to start. Once it’s running, it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw This started right up and it buzzes through the wood. I bought up a little and don’t regret it. Can’t wait to put it to the test of a days work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I expect from Stihl Works well. Starts easy. Handles the bigger jobs with ease. I like the flip up levers on the fuel and oil caps for easier removal and tightening. I have no complaints so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power to spare I bought this saw following a severe storm in the area. I had many trees down. This saw is a littl eheavy to do limbing all day but it cuts like a knife in warm butter through the big oak, pine and sycamore tree trunks. It was still going strong when I ran our of steam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw! I was hesitant to buy this saw because of its weight. I have smaller, lighter ones, but they just won’t do the job on bigger trees. After purchasing this saw I am glad I bought it. It is a little heavier but with the power it has, it shortens the time you have to hold it, and the weight actually helps cut. Would definitely recommend this saw for anyone cutting larger trees.
