MS 180 C-BE
MS 180 C-BE is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 296.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from light but tough little saw Had this ms180 c for over two years and honestly can say it's the best light saw I've ever owned. Have used it for general brush clearing, and for felling and limbing some very large Leyland Cypress. It will handle 12" logs with ease and even used it to close cut a 24" stump, albeit carefully. Never fails to start and love the easy start feature. Just don't try to start it like you did your "old" chain saw with a "throw" pull or other hard pull. Just securely hold saw and slowly pull up handle. Once she's warmed up and running, she'll start on first pull every time.. I always run it out of gas when I put her up and fill with fresh gas when I take it out to use it. Also love the easy chain adjustment. This is really a well designed and well thoughtout product for home and small farm use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a great product for what it cost compared to others that I have owned. I have had two other brands of chain saws this size, and this one out performs the others in all arias, easy starting, easy to handle, light weight. My young adult daughter likes helping me cut up trees in our yard, and she prefers the Stihl over the other brand that I currently own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start makes this saw!!! Love it. I have asked everyone I know with experience and Stihl is their #1 or 2 choice for quality and reliability. I haven't had the saw long but it looks well made. The easy start function is outstanding. That has been my biggest issue with a real chainsaw. It's a breeze. The weight of this model is just right for me as a 125 lb woman. It's easy to maneuver and I don't feel like it owns me. Highly recommend this saw .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw. Bought this saw for an elderly female neighbor who has a lot full of trees to cut. She loves it's light weight, easy-to-adjust chain tension, and easy start features. Powerful enough for the 8-12" trees she's cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product I'm 65 years old and have been cutting fire wood since high school. This saw is easy to start, good weight and power. It will take care of anything I'll come across for firewood for many years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually starts relatively easy Cranks out surprising cutting speed for a home version, even in thicker or sap heavy trees (like Palm trees). Relatively light weight and good balance for the arms. We will see how it lasts but so far takes about 2/3 the time and effort of my previous saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features and very reliable The MS 180 C-BE is very reliable and extremely easy to start. I use the STIHL premixed fuel, so there isn't any concern of bad fuel or an incorrect mix. I highly recommend this chainsaw for many reasons. This saw is reliable, easy to start, easy chain adjustment, easy access to the air filter and spark plug. Looking forward to many years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chainsaw gets the job done. I have a bigger saw, but this one does what I need at a much lighter weight. I can get more done because I can work longer without "giving out". It starts smoothly and the tension control makes adjustment easy.
