Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cutting power in a compact package. The perfect tool for home use on a small wooded lot for limbing and general cleanup. Easy start, smooth running, well balanced, decent cutting capacit - all in a compact, easy to maintain package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One awesome saw I have three other larger Stihl saws but I wanted a smaller saw to limb and cut smaller wood. Now I find I use the MS211 over half the time for everything since it is so easy to use and cuts awesome. I don't understand the hard starting mentioned by some. The saw when cold starts on about the third pull and after warm starts on the first pull every time. Once the saw pops the first time turn the choke off and it will start easily. The saw will sit and idle forever, never dies. Excellent power for a small saw. Its amazing how it cuts fairly large stock even hardwood like oak. I am very pleased with this saw and would buy again. Excellent product as with all Stihl saws that I have owned. Stihl beats them all. Thank you for such a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stout little saw Already have an 031AV, MS290, and MS362CM. Needed something small for some brush and limbing. Couldn't believe the power in this little saw. And just for you reviewers who have starting issues with any of these saws I have to say that the issues aren't with the saws but with the inexperienced or uneducated users. My experience has been that if you have problems starting a Stihl, you probably should be paying someone more qualified to use it for you

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Half-Decent, but too, too difficult to start I've had this saw for a few years, for general use around the few acres of property I live on. In that time I've only used it a few times because of it's extreme difficulty in starting. I'm 35, in good shape, and this thing will sap me to nothing in endless attempts to start over 35-45 minutes. Last night I needed to use the saw in an emergency, with a tree in my woods half-fallen and leaning precariously where it could fall on a shed. Well, 45 minutes later I had to give up after fighting the darn thing to even start again. It's at that point I went back inside and took some pictures of the saw to sell it. I realized that I never use the saw because of the hassle in starting it, and I always find another way to cut what needs to be cut down. I'm done fighting with something that won't work, and I'll definitely not be buying a Stihl saw to replace this one. The persistent oil leak doesn't help matters either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw Hurricane Irma had blown through our area. I was in need of a chainsaw. I went to my local Ace hardware store and they recommended this model to me. This saw was so easy to start. Most of the time it was only a half of a pull and it would start. I worked with this saw for 6 days straight and only had one time that it wouldn't start and that was because the air filter was clogged. Obtained a new one and it started right up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cuts very well for a small saw i like the no tools required for the chain adjustment and the oil and fuel filling and the easy start is great.
