Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw. We have a couple Stihl pieces and they're awesome. Had a different brand of saw that I had nothing but trouble with. Got the MS211C for Christmas. Great piece. Runs like a top, easy to handle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Update to my earlier 3 year review I just got my saw back from my local dealer. They did a wonderful job and replaced the bar oil reservoir and piston under warranty. Saw runs good now and I have turned it over to the wife for her use. I am a little disappointed that it needed major repairs after only three years but give kudos to Stihl and my dealer for standing by the extended warranty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buy the MS180 I cut my fair share of firewood (15-20 cords/year) I own and swear by Stihl products. I also run a 036 Pro and a MS180. If your looking for a small saw for topping out and trimming, go with the MS180. I can't put that little guy down! Lightweight, powerful and easy to sharpen. And cuts circles around the 211. I had nothing but carb issues since I purchased it last year. I'm frequently adjusting the carb to keep it performing. I grab the 180 every chance I get, that alone should signify how much I prefer operating the MS180.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 year review I've owned this saw for three years. The first year it performed well then it started to leak bar oil when it was not being used, then it would not run after it warmed up. It's in the shop for the third time but I am afraid I just wore it out. I take care of my tools and have performed a tune-up and clean the air filter regularity.We have heavily wooded property that we are still clearing, I have a MS311 and it now the go-to saw but would like a lighter saw for limbing and the wife to use.This is the last homeowner grade saw I will buy. The farm/ranch or professional series are much better if you plan on using it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chain All Stihl chainsaws come equipped with a anti kick back chain. However the overall quality of this chain has issues. The biggest is the chain requires frequent sharpening after two to three hours use. I like to keep the chain sharp to optimism cutting. However the frequent sharpening will cause a shorter life and more frequent replacement.
