MS 311
MS 311 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 184.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw I bought this saw after reading many reviews on the internet and talking to alot of different people. It has very good power and cuts better than any saw I have ever owned or used. The large chain makes quick work of larger trees and will even rip cut when necessary to split extremely large pieces in halves or quarters. I highly recommend this saw to anyone who cuts alot of wood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is VERY Over Rated Hard to start from day one, saw doesn't want to run when first cranked unless it runs open throttle for a minute or two. If you idle it down sooner, every time I hit the trigger it bogs out dead. If the engine is cold many time it does not want to idle. Even when the engine is warm it can be difficult to crank. Boggs down on 12' mesquite, saw lacks power badly! No where close to satisfied with the performance or lack thereof, of this saw. I have never been this disappointed in any Stihl saw and I've been running them over 34 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start, powerfull, good controls and easy refill. Great saw. Easy starts (use Stihl fuel), adjustments are straightforward and easy to do in the field. Primary use is cut logs down to size, and resaw. All good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best chainsaw I've ever owned! I've always heard how good the Stihl products are. I own 2 other chain saws but they let me down in one way or another. The MS 311 is an absolute beast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MS311 gets the job done The Stihl MS311 chain saw is a real pleasure to use and it has many excellent safety features. I also bought the Stihl safety chaps, and safety helmet with the face shield and hearing protection. All are quality products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for the price Saw is exactly what I needed to cut all types of firewood. The 24 inch bar was a perfect length even when I was cutting 48 inch diameter madrone. This saw has plenty of power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EATS WOOD I bought the MS311 debated between that and the MS291. I went for more power because it was only $30 more, I was concerned about the weight, of the MS311 but it was very easy to handle, did not get tired overtime. The extra weight helps cut through big trees faster, just let the saw do the work. This saw probable cuts a 20 inch diameter tree in 15-20 seconds, UNREAL EATS WOOD.
