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 One nice farm grade saw I bought my MS311 a couple months ago, and have put several tanks through it, cutting things bigger around than my bar is long. While I can stall it out with the whole bar buried, it is by far the most powerful saw I have ever run extensively. I recently got a logosol timberjig and figured it would be rather hard work for it and while it was a workout it surprised me how quickly it ripped even without the ripping chain (although it was full skip) that I have ordered, I have cut all sorts of wood with the saw but mostly hardwoods and it cut way faster than my dad's ms 170 of course, I wish they would shop them with hd2 filters but I plan to upgrade mine soon, I also wish they would equip them with the quarter turn shroud locks from the pro saws, but overall I love it, it is also heavy but for a young person like me it's no problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing saw for what I needed I don’t do a lot when it comes to running saw all the time but it’s nice to have a saw that is very reliable, starts on the first pulls and I can trust to do what I need to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw I have had mine for several years. I do not get to use it all that much. But when I do, man does it get the job done fast. With the new 2n1 Sharpener, it is unstoppable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What else? This saw is an excellent choice for those of us who are looking for enough snap without the price and bulk of the commercial saws. Stihl is a great product period.Go Stihl!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very very hard to start The saw cuts great and has plenty of power. Definitely cuts like butter. The only issue I really have is that it is extremly hard to get started. I'm a 30 year old guy with a physical job and starting this saw wears me out. It may be because it's not broke in yet, I've only used it 3 times, but I don't think it should be that hard. Even with the decompression valve pushed and their recommended gas/oil being used it's a lot harder to start than my last Husqvarna and my father's older stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful, dependable, fuel efficient saw Bought this saw to clear several acres of pine, oak, and popcorn trees. Some of the pine and oaks were anywhere from 16 to 24 inches wide. I started using the MS250 but some of these trees were too thick for it. Using the MS311 for felling was like night and day from the 250. All together Ive fell about 60 trees. Went through around 5 tanks of fuel and bar oil. The only problems I have had were it flooding once, it has tossed the chain once, and a limb fell on it and popped the trigger guard off, which was about a 10 minute fix. The best things about it are that its easy to start, VERY light on the fuel, and lots and lots of power.
