MS 211 C-BE
MS 211 C-BE is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from workhorse Not sure how many hours I've got on it, but a lot. Ideal for limbing, cutting smaller firewood. Easy start, easy to tighten chain. Light weight makes it easy to cut sideways or overhead, work your way into tangles. Did wear out an oil line, not expensive to get fixed. Low vibration, i find controls easy to use and it all fits my hand (XL glove size).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does everything I ask it to do. Great chain saw for a home owner like me. I have used my saw to cut down and process more than twenty small and medium sized trees so far with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, light and easy to use This saw is great for home use. Light and easy to use, it handles the light stuff with ease and is durable for the big jobs as well. Love the easy to open and close fuel / oil caps along with the tool-less chain tightner. Looking forward to using this saw for many years to come.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't stay running I have only used this saw a couple of times and when I needed to use it I put fresh fuel in the tank and after the saw got hot it would not stay running. I took it in because it is still under warranty. The dealer told me the problem was bad fuel even though I had just purchased it from Quick Trip non alcohol pump so they insisted it was not under warranty and charged me for the diagnosis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, excellent for occasional use. Good saw for bucking and felling an occasional small tree. Starts easy and idles well. Runs smooth with little vibration. Easy to move around in the brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great ! Works great and easy to use , starts good and light weight. You do have to mix oil and gas as all 2 strokes require . Got mine free from a friend as someone put straight gas in it :)Put a new piston in it today and runs great!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I had never bought it I have had it less than one year. It is at the dealer's for the third time, twice in two weeks. I have gotten less than two hours of use out of the saw in one year. I only need it when we have storm damage. Always have to borrow the neighbor's electric chainsaw, because the Stihl MS 211-C does not work.After the second repair, I got +/- 1/2 hour of good use out of it. Then the throttle stopped working again.I pump 5 gallons of 93 gas into my truck's tank, before I get a gallon for the saw. This should assure that I am getting the best gas. I use Stihl's oil addiive and Stihl's chain oil.
