Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought it for light use... until wind storm hit, thats when this saw cut wood like a bigger model Bought this saw for lighter use. A week after purchase.. a wind storm came through and tore up the forest behind our property. Took the MS 180 out and cut wood for 3 days straight and it performed like a much bigger saw!!! Some of my friends had a "competitors" brand, the Stihl simply blew them away!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Throttle linkage issues Throttle freezes up after it warms up. Linkage to carb faulty. It's been to the dealer now twice in 3 tanks of gas. First Stihl saw and last. Waiting for a reply from the dealer like I'm not squeezing the trigger right.My 600 blower rocks though, and pole saw.No reason Stihl should embarrass themselves selling junk, just discontinue the model already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features. Like any and all Stihl products, this unit is dependable and has enough power to handle a lot around a medium wooded lot. Price is right for homeowners series and comes with Stihl quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Chain Saw Ever This is the worst product I have ever spent money on. And I do mean EVER! It wouldn't start the first time I needed to use it. Had to take it back to the dealership to get it working. By then it was too late to work on my project.The next time I needed to use it, it only worked for three minutes before the blade seized up. Once again, I had to give up on my project. The dealership is not open on the weekend, which is the only time I have for these projects.I was able to get the chain saw started recently, but the blade doesn't turn. I thought it was too tight, but the mechanism for loosing and tightening the blade stopped working. I tried to reseat the blade without success. Now it hangs loose with no way to tighten it.I will need to take it back to the dealership again. I don't have confidence it will work the next time I need to use it though, since it hasn't worked the last three times. Wish I could have returned it before the warranty, but I didn't need to use it for a while after I bought it.Since I bought this chain saw I have only been able to cut about an inch into the trunk of a tree before it stopped working. I had another chain saw that worked fine for 15 years. I was always able to do routine maintenance, sharpening and changing blades, etc. I always heard Stihl products were great. I am extremely disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall saw for home use Saw runs well after a year, have done quite a bit of work with it. Runs well, light, easy handling & cuts nice. Two issues, one oil leaks out when sitting, second is after refilling hot saw it sometimes keeps stalling out when trying to cut. Just in case you think it is me stalling it out due to inexperience, I am a professional forester with 35 years experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beats all other brands to the ground Easy to start, easy to handle, easy to maneuver in tight places, great for limbs and basses up to 16" would buy another one but I don't need to. This saw can take it.
