MS 170
MS 170 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 701.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and manageable for just about anyone. Ive owned comparable size saws but the convince and reliability is hands down the best on the market! When it comes down to price you get what you pay for. After the last hurricane we had the city government had enough of the competitors saws and purchase over 65 stihl saws that says something! When a few dollars extra is on your mind just remember it will be a saw you invest in not buy to get you by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great entry level saw I needed a lightweight economical saw for a tree removal project. The MS 170 was perfect for this. I have only had this a month but have run it thru its paces and it has preformed well. Keep in mind that this is not a power house but a lightweight entry level saw. This is the saw I would recommend for a beginner. It is easy to start and handles almost to well. I have also had a MS 390 and a FS 90 for several years and they have always been reliable so the MS 170 was an easy choice for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth the money I bought this saw to do light trimming around the house, I haven't used it a whole lot but it ran great and did everything as expected. I own other Stihl products that are great and this saw is no exception. Very happy with it so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased brand new would not run Purchased brand new MS170 would not start, I took it back to the dealership they could not get it running. They wanted to hold the chainsaw so they could service it, I just wanted to exchange it but the dealership stated Stihl would not honor it due to having gas in it. This all took place within 2 hours I ended up getting my money back. This would have been my 3rd Stihl and still would consider BUT.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic chainsaw for females This light weight (under 9 pound) chainsaw is perfect for a woman. It is as easy to use as a hair dryer !! Starts every time with a single trigger press, no mess with gasoline, no yanking on start-cords, no power cord to trip over, no need to remember to pump the oil onto the bar. Works for over two hours cutting trash fir trees before the battery needs recharging. What a dream. This is my favorite tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best.....chainsaw.....EVER! I bought this chainsaw about a year ago, and could not be happier with it. It always fires up without fail, and cuts like butter. I like how light it is, and how well it cuts through our solid oak trees with ease. I'm so please to finally have a chainsaw worth it's weight in gold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MS 170 is an excellent tool I have had this saw for a year with no issues. I needed a lightweight smaller saw for trimming limbs, shrubs, etc and this saw fills the space perfectly. It is light and easy to handle, compact size, and easy starting. It has plenty of power to cut larger limbs and trees, but it really shines as a carry around saw for smaller jobs. I even carry it on my tractor when I'm mowing to trim overhanging limbs that interfere with the job. The quality is great and the price was reasonable. This was a good value purchase.
