Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best chain saw I have ever used! The saw starts easily and runs well. It is lightweight, well-balanced, and has plenty of power for trimming and also for cutting small trees.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Motor failed prematurely I took my MS 180 C-BE into the dealer because it was getting very hard to start when warm and they informed me that the motor is shot. There is slop in the bearings and scoring/chips in the piston and cylinder. The saw has only been used to get firewood on camping trips and does not have many hours on it. I take excellent care of everything I own and this saw was no exception. Only quality premium gas and Stihl oil were ever used in it. It should have lasted much longer than it did. I have found several other reviews on this saw from others who have reported this same type of premature engine failure. Stihl would not stand behind their product and do anything about it when I contacted them. I will never buy another Stihl product again, ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from definately recommend, a great saw for the homeowner lightweight, powerful, and well balanced. It's a lot stronger than what i expected out of a compact saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Purchased a competitor's chain saw and had to send it back because I had trouble starting it due to a back back. I then visited my neighborhood Stihl dealer and he introduced me to the ME 180 CB-E model. Easy to start, easy to tighten the chain, and cuts great. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy cutting, hard cold start, impressive power, small reservoirs. I like this saw a lot even though it takes several pulls to get it started when cold. Once it's been warmed up it restarts on the first or second pull everytime. My MS180 C-BE made quick work of dozens of 4-6 inch thick volunteers along my fence row. And then a storm blew down a 25 foot long 16 inch thick upper trunk from my elm tree. It took a bit of patience, and there was some wood burn, but this little baby cut that trunk into 5 pieces. I was impressed by its perseverance. The saw is lightweight and easy to use. I wish it held a little more fuel and chain oil but then it would need to be a bigger saw.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked for an hour and then stopped I bought the chainsaw and used it for the first time a week later. It ran really well and I was incredibly pleased for an hour. It then started sputtering and loosing power. It eventually stopped running and wouldn't restart. I figured maybe I ran it to hard and it was hot so I sat it aside for about an hour while I cleaned up the stuff that I cut. It still wouldn't start so I called the store that inbought it from and they told me to bring it back in and they weren't able to start it either. There was no one to work on it so I had to wait a week. The store first tried to tell me that it was bad gas and that wasn't true because the gas was fresh because I was told to use premium gas instead what I use for all other 2 stroke machines I have. When I pressed they called the technician that worked on it he said it was flooded and it ruined the spark plug. Never heard of a running chaninsaw somehow becoming flooded, hmmm!I am incredibly concerned that I bought an incredibly fragile and finicky top of the line chainsaw!!
