Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lid to chain oil reservoir It never wants to go back on. Ready to throw many times to hot outside to stand and mess with it for 10-15 minutes when there's work to be done

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very dependable saw I've used Stihl saws for over 40 years. When I needed a smaller lighter saw for general maintenance on our property I selected the MS 211 C- BE. The light weight, easy start and dependability where at the top of the list for my needs. Like my other Stihl saws, there is no disappointment here. Very happy that I stayed with a Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw, used it a ton I love this chainsaw. I purchased it 9 months ago and have run it hard. I thought by now I would have been testing the warranty but no problems. Anti kick is nice and vibration damping is something special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Bought this chainsaw awhile back and my father and I have used it extensively. We've cleared many areas and cut many, many trees down. Not one problem out of it what so ever. Always used STIHL fuel mix, and used 100% gas as well. Only thing I've ever done for it is get it another chain because we wore out the original.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS SAW PERIOD The MS 211 is a dog. I've tried several brand chains, several different cut chains and 93 octane gas. Nothing works, saw bogs down under load, hence wears chain faster. On 4 different occasions I started with fresh chain and after 20 to 30 minutes put it down and picked up my 20 year old other manufacture saw of same size and HP. It will literally cut circles around this Stihl. I am a homeowner that started with 95 trees on my lot. I have removed 31. Most work, except for the 4 occasions, was performed with the other manufacturer's saw. Stihl required 2 edits of this review before they would post it.
