Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad EZ Start System I had this saw for 1 year and 1 month, but only used it for a total of about 16 hours. I was using it cutting up wood in my yard after hurricane Mathew it ran out of gas and after refueling I attempted to crank it but all I got was an EASY pull on the starter cord and a clicking noise and it would not engage the motor. So now I'm off to a dealer to see IF it is covered under warranty. After talking to some other Stihl owners, it was stated that this product has a lot of problems.I use this saw from my wheel chair and my wife bought it as a present thinking it would be easier to work with because of the same. I am a firm believer in Stihl products but this one is a big let down. October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow I recently purchased this saw from a young man that said it just was not a good saw. after taking it home I noticed the chain was on backwards. After turning the chain around this saw cut like a million dollars.I really like the easy chain adjust and tool less feature. A nice lightweight saw that really cuts. I have owned several other saws this one is my favorite. October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent saw for the price I needed a light weight chainsaw to use around the home and our small pine trees and birch trees. this saw is everything and more of what I wanted. powerful, easy to start, light weight. love it!! October 13, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by not satisfied Looked good, ran good. First cut was to fell a 10 inch tree. As soon as I started to notch, the chain brake activated as it was close to my big hands. The chain stopped immediately as it should, but it also locked up. Engaging and disengaging the chain brake had no effect. Still locked up. I shut the engine down so as to not damage the saw. I am taking it back to the dealer where I bought it. October 12, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by My fav lightweight saw!! The Stihl MS180 is a fantastic value and a hard working little machine. I have two of them and use this model to cut 90% of my firewood for home heat. Some people laugh at my little saw but for me a light weight saw lets me keep working all day without user fatigue. I have several larger saws but only use them for felling large trees and for big jobs. Never under estimate the value of small, lightweight equipment. In the right hands they can do a ton of work! I do however wish Stihl would avoid some of the newer additions to this model like the easy start and tool-less chain adjustment features. In my experience they just add weight and reduce long term reliability. Keep em simple, strong, and light!! October 4, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by It needed fixed after two starts I put the new chain saw together and started it twice. Then it would no start. I had to take it in. The starter was bad. But they fixed it quickly and free. October 4, 2016
