Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeds my expectations.... I bought this MS 170 for small limbs and cleanup as well as smaller firewood. I have a Stihl MS 362 that will cut anything and a Husky 346 that is also a good big saw. Thinking I could only cut small firewood, I took along my 362. As I began cutting with the little 170, I could not believe how well it cut for such a small saw. I did not need the 362 at all and really enjoyed the cutting power of such a small saw . It performed way above my expectations and was easy on my old muscles..... August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Percfect size saw for my needs. Very great saw for the money. Just what I need for the amount of cutting I do. Plus I LIKE that it's made in America. August 12, 2016

Rated 2 out of 5 by no power Just bought this saw a couple of weeks ago and got to finally try it out today... it started right up with no problems... made my first cut and it worked great... but every cut after that it just bogs down and smoke comes off of the chain like it's not getting enough oil.I think I will be taking it back and getting a bigger saw... very disappointed with the 170.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Saw for the Price I've used Stihl products for years both as a professional and a homeowner. They are always reliable and good quality. This saw is no exception, a great value for the money. I didn't need a commercial grade saw so I purchased this 170 model to cut up a small tree that came down in a storm. It handled the job with ease.My only complaint is that it doesn't start as easy as my other Stihl equipment but still not bad with just 3-4 pulls. August 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Change the chain! The standard chain seemed to dull too quickly. 2 small trees and fine dust chips started. August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 have bought 5 now I buy a new 170 stihl every year 1/2. I cut wood from 3" to over 30" in diameter. I should also mention that I cut about 70 face cord a year mostly oak to sell. I abuse this saw cutting that big of wood and except for filing the chain, adding gas and bar oil it starts and cuts fine.That is why I keep buying the 170. I should get a bigger one to cut that size wood but when you have something that works great why change.... August 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good little saw Had this saw for a few weeks now and have cut approx 2 cords of wood with it. It is lighter than my previous little saw, which makes me less sore at the end of the day. It has good power for having such a small engine; this is my third Stihl chain saw that I believe will last my son after I'm long gone. Thank you to Stihl for such great engineering! August 1, 2016
