Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very very very unsatisfied!!!!!! I would not and will not recommend this product for anyone. I purchased this product in May to cut down 13 trees in my back yard with the understanding that the chainsaw is of high quality, but to my surprise it would not start the first time I tried to use it. I then carried it back to the retailer where they worked on it and got it to run, but wait, once I returned home it ran for less than 30 seconds. Yep, another trip back to the retailer ( Jevins Ace Hardware) where the dealer could not get it started either. Was told that this would need to be left there for warranty work. Lol. On a NEW Stihl chainsaw. Seriously??? Told them to keep it if that’s the kind of junk they sell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good saw for the money This model is very lightweight which is great for users with a bad back, or bad shoulders. The power is just a bit less than what I'm used to, but my last chainsaw was a larger one. The price was excellent as was the experience at the dealership. My saw starts easily, and runs like a dream. All in all, I'm very pleased with my Stihl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good little chainsaw This chainsaw, although harder to start than my previous Stihls, is a very good little saw for the money. I needed it to cut small trees and limbs and it does a very good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great working product With all of the windy weather we have been having this chainsaw came in handy. Two big limbs came off of some trees and it was like cutting butter with a hot knife. Glad we bought it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One week and two cuts Had it one week and made two cuts on a pecan tree limb then I bogged down on the next cut. Bogged bad!! Took it back and the place I got it tested it and said it need a new carb. At least it was covered under warranty this time. Like how light it is and when it was running had some power so we will see bit now after one issue I’m worried they won’t cover anything under warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First chainsaw purchase. MS 170 gets the job done! This was my first chainsaw purchase. Based on my experience using my other Stihl products I own, I knew that the quality and dependability would be great. The same day I purchased the chainsaw I came home to find a tree in the yard had broken off a major part of the tree from the storms earlier that day. The tree was laying against my camper and boat unfortunately. Being challenged with no experience using a chainsaw and now having many pressure points to deal with on the tree, I took on the challenge! I was very impressed with the chainsaws performance and user friendly options. Got the tree cut up and had no trouble using it. Perfect timing and great purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ms170 I got this on sale. As my husband was always a huge fan and supporter of stihl. I bought this so I have something I could handle a little easier on my back. The handle seems loose and weak. I feel like it’s going to break apart. The saw doesn’t like to start right away even if I have been running it for a while and just stop to put more fuel in it. Overall the weight is nice and it cuts well. The price was perfect. Now. The quality was made a little higher rather than feel like cheap plastic I would give it higher reviews.
