A feature-packed chainsaw with advanced engine technology at a value price.

MS 211
MS 211 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight with plenty of power for limbing I was specifically looking for a reliable, lightweight saw for limbing trees brought down by storms. The MS211 has enough power and it's light weight reduces fatigue, allowing more energy to be devoted to untangling the brush. I am very pleased with this Stihl product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I really was looking for an 18 in electric, wanted something reliable and easy to use. I didn't want to spend a lot, but in the end decided I would give this a try. I must say I haaaatte primer bulbs.....ultimately that is why I didn't want gas but this only has a choke. starts great every time. Bonus:it is lighter than the electric I was looking at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My oil tank hasnt leaked a drop After reading tons of reviews on this saw i was half scared to buy it because of everyone saying it leaks bar oil when sitting. Well mine has never ever leaked and i dont open the cap to vent pressure when im done either. This saw has cut thru black and honey locust with no problem. If you know how to use a saw right and not try to force it thru the tree itll cut anything. My local dealer didnt have the 18" bar on it as it says in the description because stihl just started putting the 18 on the 211 but i really dont think its have a problem spinnin an 18" chain mine has a 16" bar and i love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best homeowner's saw This is a great homeowner saw. It has great safety features. It is light weight and easy to handle, even in less than ideal conditions. Starts and runs like a dream. As you start to tackle jobs on the upper end of what a homeowner normally would tackle a slight lack of power is evident. But that is ok. Most of the jobs i perform this saw is more than enough for. I am very pleased with the Stilhl 211.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bar oil leak I purchased this chainsaw about 3 years ago and used it occasionally around the cottage. Took proper care of it at all times. Recently bar oil is leaking underneath the saw from the rubber line underneath. I've read recently that this is a very common problem and now the warranty is over. Given how lightly is was used and how well it was taken care of (cleaning, sharpening, etc) this is disappointing as these are premium saws at a premium price. Other than the above the saw performed well but a leak is a major problem.
