Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw My previous saw was a Stihl 028 that was almost 20 yrs old. I sold it when I moved into town and didn't think I needed it anymore. I purchased a MS 170 because of the value and experience I'd had with my previous saw. It's a great saw and starts easily. It's also very efficient. It's a great saw for the average homeowner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little saw I bought this saw to keep in the truck tool box 4 years ago . It small & lite and handles most small tasks well. I've fell cedar and cotton wood up to 24"with it but that's about max for it. I've had a few small problems such as the carburetor came loose causing it to suck air, starting hard and hardly run. Tightened the screws and back to work we went. Its not a big saw but does quite a bit of work for the size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need for yardwork to getting firewood for heating Very happy with this chainsaw. I can cut trees up at least 48" in diameter and that's as thick as I feel comfortable cutting. My dad who has used different chainsaws enjoys this chainsaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the weight factor and the power I great friend had one and I used it quite a lot. I had to get my own so I was not a bother anymore. He taught me how to handle it safely and I am very pleased. I bought it at Clark Devon Hardware, the guy set it up, installed the chain etc, explained it all and started it up, showed the oil flow. Great job at Clark Devon!!!
