MS 211
MS 211 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a beast. I bought a competitor's chainsaw with a 46cc engine and a 20" bar, what a joke. Had to tighten chain every 2 cuts on cut number 8 the chain came off and slapped my thigh. Took it back and got the MS211, I have cut 4 truck loads of wood in 2 days. 6" to 40" diameter logs so far and cutting about 6 more truck loads this weekend. Original blade getting a little dull, but it has been cutting like crazy. Buying a spare chain today, never hurts to have 2 chains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MS-211 nice light saw I have only bought Stihl for last 40 years This saw has ran well and starting has not been a issue. Bought last year and used it from April through November. I cut mainly smaller Pines now. I don't drop my own trees anymore as I leave that to the younger folks. It limbs well and has no issues cutting up to 20 inches if I cut from both sides. I put it away in November, had back surgery the last of December and just got the saw out yesterday for the first time this year. I gassed it up and pulled the start rope and it took off after the third pull.I was told by the man that I bought it from that if I open the chain oil lid and release the tank pressure before putting it away, I would not have leaky oil messes. I have had no trouble with oil leaks as of yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for two times, then not so good. Worked like a dream the first two times I used it. The third time it wouldn't start, regardless of what I tried. Would have given it a 5 initially, but rating has dropped drastically. Spent extra money for the easy-to-start model, apparently I got the "won't start after the second session" model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for small to intermediate use... Use this saw to cut cedars to make cedar fence posts, ideal power , easy start, idols for as long as you want, never failed me . Have cut over 500 posts in the past month and still on the original chain which is as sharp as new still. Light weight, easy to manouver for branching. Would highly recommend this saw for this type of jobs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Don't waste your time or $ with this saw. Had for 6 months. Used less than 6 times on small branches around the house. While using this week it all of the sudden stopped and would not restart. Took to store where I purchased it. It's under warranty but not sure what's wrong with it. Don't buy this model in my opinion it's nothing but headaches

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent small chain saw This chain saw completely meets my needs for general use. It handles the limbs and smaller trees that break due to winter weather. The only drawback I've found that occasionally it is a little finicky about starting after used one tank of gas and immediately want to start it again after refilling the fuel and oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw! great price! I purchased this saw brand new in October of 2012.Since my purchase I have had no issues with it. I did proper break in on it, then tuned it leaner. It always starts on 3rd pull. It is not a saw for cutting big trees. I use my 041AV for felling trees and use my 211 for cutting the limbs and cutting smaller oak and pecan for firewood. Super lightweight allows you to get into the thick brush and clear out messes. Wish it held a bit more fuel but, it's been a great addition to my arsenal. Love this saw. Must do proper break in procedure. Speak to your local stihl dealer for info.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ms-211 light and agile Bar wears well, except I have a small kink at bottom end of bar 4 o'clock from sprocket Noticed it in sunlight. Looks like factory flaw. After noticing it I inspected chain. I see wear that will shorten life of bar. I have had many saws and never seen this problem. I can not believe its from use, unless chain pulled a weak bar to the side.
