Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I owned one of these in 2003, used it for years. It always started right up and ran perfectly. When I sold my house and moved to an apartment I sold it.Now I needed another one, so bought the same thing, and it is every bit as good if not better than the first!Stihl is the best you can buy, and costs no more than the junk out there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy start very nice. chain requires tightening often and quick chain tensioner features difficult to use with gloves. chain slipped off the bar 4-5 times in first couple of hrs of use. checked tension periodically but still came off. Quick chain tensioner a nice option but can't pull out hinged clip with gloves on. adjusting wheel is small with not much gripping surface showing making it also difficult to work with gloves. love the easy start features which is why I went with this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels good in the hands This saw does exactly what I purchased it for. Around the property management and cutting logs for firewood. Easy to start, enough power to get the jobs done, simple maintenance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cutting power from such a lightweight and easy to use saw I received an MS 180 CB-E "Mini Boss" as a gift from an older relative who could no longer use it. What a great saw, just a pleasure to use, starts immediately and with very little effort. Perfect for cutting up windfalls for firewood, and felling 12-16" diameter snags. Light and balanced enough to work aloft. Perfect for clearing brush all day long. The only time the bigger MS 360 leaves the shed anymore is for the truly heavy jobs, but the 180 always comes along for bucking and clearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the easy start and the chain adjuster. Nice starting strong running saw. I've been cutting up a 24" red oak. The narrow kerf saves a lot of wood.

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.
