Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat a stihl! After purchasing this chainsaw and using It the very next day to cut 3 cord's of wood I was very pleased with this product. Still running good with no problems whatsoever.even the chain is still sharp! I'll never purchase anything other than a stihl again, and the seller at Cal Ranch,where I purchased the saw were extremely helpful and great. 5 Star rating to stihl!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish the saw had more power I was interested in a larger saw, but the salesman talked me into the smaller one... I regret the decision. It stalls out more than it should. Love the easy start capability and the easy chain adjust feature though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great choice for a rookie female! I love this saw! I was attracted to the light weight and easy-start features and haven't been disappointed. As a woman inexperienced with chain saws, I didn't want to fight with a big, heavy saw that's hard to start. I use the saw for cutting brush, cutting tree limbs, and other small chores. Guys who have LOTS of experience love the saw for bigger jobs, too. The dealer was very helpful and gave me good advice on basic use of the saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts easy, quick chain adjust is simple, love it I have struggled for years with another brand. I thought all chain saws were the same. Big mistake. I wasted more time and money on inferior products. I should have bought Stihl a long time ago. And the cost wasn't even any more than the other brands. I wont make that mistake again. I'm a Stihl customer for life. Thanks for making a quality product, and making here in the U.S.A.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from cheap parts hard to start and cover keeps falling off. cheaply made cover had a piece of pressed metal to hold down cover and it fell off the first day it was used. I wish that it had a primer bulb on it. At least 50 pulls to get it started. It's no husky

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and very reliable This MS 180 C-BE saw is powerful beyond it's size. Plenty of power and lightweight. It has been a workhorse for over 3 years. Two things should be known about this saw: 1) On the Easy-Start system, DO NOT pull the cord as you would on a regular recoil type system. You run the risk of pulling the rope out of it's housing. This system was not designed for hard pull recoil ... hence the Easy-Start system. 2) Occasionally check the fuel line inside the gas tank for pinching of the line. As the internal fuel line become older, it tends to soften and may, at times, form a crimp and cut off the fuel supply. Two minor issues worth mentioning. Still an excellent product. And keep the saw chain sharp!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like the spring-assist for starting ! Best saw I have ever owned. Easy starting. Plenty of power. Hardly any of the usual saw vibration. Light weight. Don't get tired out using this one. Chain adjustment is very easy to do. No tools needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from broken after 2.5 years I bought this MS180 about 2.5 years ago by knowing Stihl brand name for long time. It is a little sad that the saw is broken now. I have been doing some tree/branch cutting works after building a new house in a 2 acres lot. Don't believe that I am a heavy duty user, although been using this saw many time a year. I don't regret for buying/using this saw. It worked pretty good, easy to start and rather light. However, I wish it can last longer. As I still need a chainsaw to continue my yard work and don't really trusting Stihl now, my next chain saw would be a different brand.
