MS 311
MS 311 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 191.
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 5 out of 5 by from This saw is very dependable and is a workhorse. I have purchased two MS-311's by Stihl, and I have nothing but good to say about them. I recommend this product to everyone I associate with. When it comes to chainsaws, Stihl is, by far, the best saw I ever used. The company seems concerned about user safety, and have done good things to reduce kickback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Saw - A+ I purchased this saw about a year ago when I bought wooded property. I use the 20" bar for most everything and the 25" for stumps. It eats anything you put in its path! I give it a 99 out of 100 - it's a little hard to start after a month without use. This saw and a 193T saw is all you need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw! Very dependable and has great power I've had the MS311 for a year now. I love it! This saw always starts when I use it, and it chews up trees quicker than a starving beaver. The power is great. I would definitely buy another one, but as dependable as it is, I won't need one for a long time. I would definitely recommend this saw for anyone who uses this saw for around the house farm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast!!!! This saw is a beast!!!!! This thing eats logs, with any chain. I have a 18" bar and it goes through a tree without a problem. I've used a green chain and a yellow,doesn't matter it will cut through it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw I bought this saw to do storm damage clean up around Iowa. I've used it in the aftermath of 5 storms and the saw is great.I got the 25" bar and the saw has the power to cut full length.This saw is heavy but not against peer saws. This is one of two I use on such jobs. The other is a Stihl 211 I use for limbing. Much lighter and easier to handle for the small stuff.I would buy this saw again.
