Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light weight saw. I bought this saw because I'm getting older and I wanted a lighter weight saw than my 310. This saw is much lighter yet still has plenty of power for cutting small to medium diameter fire wood. I did have just a little trouble starting it during my first day using it but it is fine now. I definitely recommend it to others with similar needs as mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw Bought this saw for doing lighter cutting. It's amazed me with how well it works. It starts easy, and is easy to handle. The weight is great when working around brush. The power is better than I expected. The only thing I wish this saw had was metal bumper spikes. That being said the plastic ones on it have good grip.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stihl MS170 Chaninsaw This MS170 saw was a huge disappointment coming from a trusted name like Stihl. I had a MS170 before and it was the best saw I had ever owned but this new one was an unreliable joke. Every time I needed it most for 4 of the 10 months I owned the saw it would die and not restart leaving me stranded without a saw. This saw was very frustrating and caused problems between me and my dealer. This is a decent local dealer that that had always treated my family right where we had done a lot of business and purchased several Stihl saws. The dealer voluntarily gave my money back which was above and beyond what he they had to do but now our relationship is strained so I have to settle for a lesser dealer or buy a different brand saw. I would far prefer that Stihl had made the saw right and I could have bought it and used it with service from the dealer I liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good saw Bought this for cleaning up my back yard, ended up helping cut fallen trees at neighbors, and friends houses, after hurricane Mathew 3 giant oaks, and several pine trees later no problems just a dull chain, and a tired me. And still cleaned up some small trees, saplings, and bamboo, yes bamboo in my back yard. Perfect size weight, and power for home owners there should be one in every house hold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STIHL MS170 ..... Awesome ! Purchased my new Stihl MS170 from our local dealer in Klamath Falls, OR. (Stukel Saw Shop), and man what a great buying experience all around. Nice guys at the shop, and my MS170 works like a dream. Just a great sized saw for around the property, and best of all it's pretty light. Thanks again Stihl :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw To really appreciate this fine tool, you need to have a history with less expensiveexpense saws. This Mod 180 is far, far superior to the other brands I have owned or used. From the time you buy and use it for the first time, you realize the Quality of parts and engineering that went into making such a fine product. And by the way, the price difference between this saw and the lower priced competitiion was very little. Have you noticed when you see the news about fires in the FarWest or news of a large apartment fire...the saws being used by the professionals....STIHL !Jim Hinson
