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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw! I have wasted money buying toy saws in the past. Stihl's are tools. They work and work very very well (period). The MS 311 equipped with a 20" bar is flawless. Easy start, runs strong, controllably makes short work of anything you tackle with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from awesome power for any type of job. I love this saw. my second stihl saw now and it's been great. all the power you could need and easy to use. only complaint is have is that I get a lot of oil coming from bottom of muffler and behind it too. I think it may just be bar oil but not that big of a deal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds Expectations I was told by multiple people to go with a STIHL after having had another companies chainsaw and had nothing but trouble basically from the beginning. I have USED my new STIHL in some pretty tricky and tight spots with cutting a lot of small to medium trees and a few larger ones. Whatever I set the saw to no matter how thick the wood or pile of wood it cuts through it like a knife through warm butter. It is effortless to use and starts and runs like a dream! One of my favorite things I have ever bought! STIHL lives up to its reputation!!!It does get heavy after awhile but hey I'm building more muscles!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome now the motor is broken in This was a very hard starter for the first month I had it working on the weekends cutting down a forest of locust trees, even when following the choke recs noted on here. Finally broke in and starts like a champ now, even after sitting a couple months unused this winter. Love it now.
