Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great limbing and brush Excellent dependable saw, starts every time even after stored over a AZ summer. I’ve used it in 100 degree weather and in freezing conditions in mountains (7500). Perfectly balanced and easy to start. I’d limit firewood cutting to 10-12” depending on hardness it will not pull the 18” bar buried in anything but maybe green soft pine. Buy a wood boss or farm boss if you want to cut firewood or fall trees. Buy this saw for cutting brush and limbing all day. I have other brands of saws and this one starts easier. My 17 year old 125 pound niece started and ran this saw just fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This saw is hard to start & we can't figure out why!! Hard to start. No obvious reason. When it runs it is very good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The STHIL MS211 chainsaw I purchased was a lemon! The MS211 chainsaw I purchased at Ace Hardware was a complete failure. I’m thinking it either came off of the assembly line bad or Ace Hardware’s Service Department poorly refurbished the chainsaw and placed it back on the self and sold it as new. I purchase this chainsaw to do work around the house cutting down some small trees to clear an area for starters and would gradually progress my projects from there. I read the owner’s like always and familiarized myself with the chain saw. Once I felt good, I started to tackle the first small tree. The saw started right up no problems and as I just started to cut the tree, the chain stopped cutting. The chain just stopped moving. I turned the saw off and checked the chain and it moved just fine by hand. Not to tight, not to loose. And this sequences of events played out over and over again. At one point, the saw just started smoking! It was crazy! Just a bad experience! I then rewatched the Stihl YouTube videos again and some other videos troubleshooting to see if I was doing something wrong but couldn’t find nothing. This Stihl Saw should have cut these small trees down with ease, like a hot knife through butter, but didn’t live up to the task. I took the saw back to Ace Hardware’s Service Department and explained what occurred. They couldn’t figure out the problem either, only that the chainsaw had issues. I returned the saw and got a refund. I went back home and completed my project by cutting 6 small trees down in 15 minutes with my trusted Milwaukee Super Sawzall without any problems whatsoever. I believe STIHL makes excellent chainsaws. Unfortunately, the one I purchased, for whatever reason, was a lemon!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is fine for very small jobs. Bar bends very easy, 3 inch diameter limb may be pushing it. Motor will also need to have screen cleaned after a short time of use, today’s gas mixed with oil tends to cause carb problems on this unit. Price is good, will have to size up going forward

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Saw is a workhorse... First the Taylor's Hardware staff at Nimmo PKWY are awesome, and second, this is my second STIHL, and although my other saw is still running like a champ, it was a little big for the kind of cutting i have been doing lately. When i took it in for some routine pre-wood cutting season tune up the boys at Taylor's sold me a MS211 with the easy start, and well the rest is history.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good occasional use saw Finally decided to step up to higher quality saw from my electric saw used mostly for firewood (although I have taken down a few trees with it). Bought the saw prior to going to my parents to clean up after a storm knocked down a couple trees. Product is definitely well built. Power is decent, I will admit I expected a little more from this. Cut fine as long as I did not try to rush it. Can be a hassle to start. Choke control does not seem ergonomically friendly, and if you happen to stall is takes a lot to restart.
