MS 311

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 Great Chainsaw Starts great - runs great - plenty of power. Even for small cleanup it is my "go to" saw because it works so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Been using a 36cc 16" saw for years. Finally ran into a tree it just couldn't seem to make it thru (not enough power, kept bogging down). Went to the local Stihl dealer and picked up a brand new MS 311. WOW! I know it's only 25cc's (or there about), but this thing ate thru a wet and partially rotten/partially petrified cottonwood tree like a hot knife thru butter (sorry about the cliche, BUT IT DID!). Very happy with the purchase and if I only had more trees that needed cutting... I'm having just too much fun with this thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible machine! My second Stihl chainsaw and I couldn't be happier. My first one was stolen and I tried to sneak by with a cheaper competitor. Big mistake! When I put this MS 311 to work it was incredible; I had forgotten how dependable they were. Don't compromise, get a Stihl

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is as strong as its name I just used this saw i bought a year ago. One blade and three tank refills filled my 18' trailer 3' high. So happy with my purchase I'm looking at buying another. For the size of the saw it was well balance which made cutting wood extremely easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This saw has a flaw I am usually a fan of Stihl, having owned Stihl saws for the last 30 years. I bought this saw 2 years ago and kept it proper fuel and oil. Last week I started cutting a log and the saw died, something not normal for this saw. I restarted it thinking it was just cold, since I had just started cutting, it then popped and died again. Now there was no compression or spark. I checked decompression valve, it was fine, when I got home I pulled off the muffler and inside of piston was was badly scarred in one place, so a bearing or ring has broke and ruined the cylinder. The saw was not hot and had never ran hot so know not caused by fuel. I have looked online and this is a common problem it seems with this saw. Not sure if I will replace with another Stihl.
