Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little saw for the money I have owned 2 of these saws since 2011.This model saw is a little light for cutting firewood or cleaning up our substantial yard. I usually cut about 5 to 7 cords of firewood per year and clear about 1/2 acre of spruce, birch and pine per year. Trees range in size from 4 inches to 16 inches in diameter. This model is OK for bucking and minor yard cleanup, but if you have heavier jobs consider a MS250 or a pro model. I own and operator a seasonal fishing and aurora viewing lodge and the MS 180 CBE is good for the ladies who work here. (Yellow Dog Lodge) Ambient air temperatures at the lodge range from -40C to + 30C; cold starts take a little more time to start and warm up for operations. Problems with the oiler - had to replace the oil pump and the hose.Problems with the clutch - have to replace the springs each season. My staff seem to like breaking the springs on taking down too large a tree and using the brake.Problems starting - use 92 octane fuel with stihl oil, I used 87 octane with generic oil and had issues with the carb, but after cleaning the carb and changed the fuel the saw works just fine. Take the time to do regular maintenance and replace chains when needed. No real problems with cutting, just keep the saw clean and the chain sharp and you will be good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable and powerful for its size I have owned this saw for 3-4years. Yes I had to replace starter rope due to my ignorance. I also have had a little problem starting by flooding it out. I learned that it will start every time if one follows starting instructions. I have an 025 that I have had for many years. Stihl is the only saw I will purchase. The 180 CBE cuts as well as most larger saws that I have been around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like this saw. I've had limited past exposure to chainsaws. Have used this one to remove two dead trees. Like the balance, starts easily, not too heavy. Could use a little more power - but this could keep me from getting in trouble.
