MS 211 C-BE is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst saw I have owned. I have had this saw for a couple years and it’s basically new still because it will never start. I am 6’4 230lbs and no matter what I do I have never been able to start this piece of expensive garbage. I bought this and a ms391 at the same time. My 391 is a breeze to start. I have taken both saws in for service. The service guy can get it to start. I’m annoyed because I need two different sized saws and I’m probably just going to throw this nice looking saw into the garbage because it should be called never start technology instead of EZ. Never buying your EZ start saws again. I have many other Stihl tools and this is by far the worst. I would happily take a late return for a not Ez saw...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw! Picked this saw up to replace a 20yo Craftsman that finally died. Luckily, I was able to use the craftsman case as the Stihl one is way over priced.Saw fires up in two or three pulls, once warmed up cuts like a champ.Bought a maint. kit so I dont have to hunt it down when the time comes. Also got an extra chain. Wanted the heavy duty chain until I saw the shocking price tag. I'll just burn through 6 of the regular chains, as opposed to paying for the HD version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good homeowner's saw This is a good, light weight saw with easy starting and good power. Good power and torque. It handled a 30" diameter tree with no problem. The chain tightening was super easy and the fueling and bar oil reservoirs are easy to access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets my needs perfectly. I like this saw very much, it is lightweight and easy to control. I also really like the easy start which saves my shoulder from pulling too hard on the starting cord.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handle broke Was disappointed that the bottom spring mount broke and had to replace the entire handle.. I only use 5-10 days per year and am not a heavy user.
