Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Experience Don’t Buy!!! Bought my chainsaw from a Homebase in Copperas Cove, TX. After about a month of light use the saw began to lockup. Took it in for warranty repair and Homebase said STHIL wouldn’t cover it because the damage must have been my fault. I will never buy another STHIL product. Both my weed eater and chainsaw are nothing more than paperweights sitting in my shop. Luckily my ‘other brand’ Chainsaw and ’other brand’ weed eater are still going strong. (Put other brand because STHIL wouldn't post my review with other competitors names!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw for the money I needed something small to cut the smaller logs and basic limb trimming work. This saw came with a 16" bar and chain but I bought the 12" bar and chain. The saw is powerful and lightweight. Just what the doctor ordered. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw I have worked with chainsaws for over 50 years, firefighting and felling. This saw is my first Stihl, I have always used Homelites, I still have two that are well over 40 years old. The Still is light dependable and great for what I do now, trim and thin junipers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great homeowners saw Very reliable lightweight chainsaw. Cranks easily which is very important to an older person such as myself. Even though it is a lightweight saw designed for homeowners use, I have cut down some large trees with it and as long as you let it work and don’t try to force it , then it has plenty of power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Starter chainsaw and can get the job done This puppy is light weight, reasonably priced, and powerful enough to get the job done. I recently moved into a place that is primarily powered by wood heat. Luckily we live on some land with timber but I didn't have a chainsaw. I believe in buying the best tool you can afford, so if you are in need of quality /power/reliability but also on a budget than snag one of these. I was able to fell trees, and get a chord stacked for winter without a single issue or questioning my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw I bought this for a camp saw and around the house. Ended up with a truck load of wood. Saw performed flawlessly and fires up with just a couple pulls everytime warm or sat for a week. Its a little under powered for bigger pieces of oak but just don't push it hard.
