Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easiest starting saw ever. I'm a long time Stihl customer widh many good years of service our to my 029. I wanted a little lighter trim saw, a little easier to handle, for some "lighter" work. This little MS180 is a breeze to start, runs great, and very frankly has performed every bit as well as my larger saw. I've cut about 3 cords of oak firewood with it in the past couple of weekends and it did not disappoint. So far, great saw, easy start is a joy, and a workhorse to boot. Could not be more satisfied at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice lightweight saw for chores around the yard based on operating an MS 180 for only an afternoon's work, I'm impressed - was hesitant about owning a small saw, thinking power would disappoint; however, wanted something lighter and, properly handled, power was not an issue - considered the alphabet soup version; however, much prefer the normal pull cord, screw-on gas/oil caps, and bolt-on sprocket cover available on the plain vanilla MS 180 - it started reliably multiple times, hot and cold - idled steadily between cuts - felled, logged, and limbed a 20" dbh tree with relative ease - wish I had one like this years ago

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Lightweight, very powerful. For the size and weight, you are getting a very powerful chainsaw. I have cut pine, palm, live oak, scrub oak and thin brush. This saw with a 16" bar holds up well to any tree with 16" diameter or less. However, this saw is more designed for limbing and does a superior job of it. I do not get tired carrying this around all day.This was my first Stihl and has completely convinced me to exclusively buy Stihl. Starts with only a few pulls. I have never had an issue getting this saw started. The only issue this saw struggled with was a 24" palm. Honestly, most saws would struggle with this wet, fibrous wood. We use it at the house and East Texas acreage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chainsaw The chainsaw runs great and has plenty of power. I cut down two trees last weekend as well as numerous smaller trees. Because of the overgrown brush, I would cut one tree and have to stop and remove the brush, limbs, etc. The best part about this chainsaw is that it cranks back up everytime with one pull, regardless of how long it sat while I moved brush and limbs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't get 3 hours of use I bought the ms180 in August 2017. I ran it for approximately 1 hour the weekend I bought it and was satisfied. I used it a couple other times just a few minutes each time. I used it lastly in February 2018. It started great ran great up until it coughed and stalled. It would not refire after that. I will be taking it in for service under warranty. I guess I had hire expectations from what others claimed of your products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Live on 4 acres and plan on buying more acreage up north. Needed a really good chainsaw, and after looking around for awhile, settled on a STIHL. Glad i did... outstanding chainsaw. Couldn’t be happier!!! I can see this chainsaw sticking around a long time, all the while handling my abuse. Thank you STIHL for a quality “ MADE IN USA “ product.
