Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Owned now for several years and has been through countless chains and sharpenings. Only after several years dis I feel the need to replace the plug although the old one was really working fine. All Stihl product in this yard very reliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't cut wood if it won't start I give up -- I can't start the thing. If and when it does run the chain oiler plugs right up. I have not even run 4 tanks of fuel through it, and I'm ready to try another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional chain saw Geez this is an awesome chainsaw. The engine seems fine tuned like a race car and never has any stutter or hesitance in any position. This is perfectly balanced, and feels like an extension of your own arms. The weight is ideal and it's super durable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Starting it can be challenging, easy once you learn the trick Bought this last fall, Stihl techs at MFHC tested it and showed me how easy it was to start. A month later started to saw up a cord of maple. Couldnt get it started. Looked online & found the tip. This model FLOODS easy. Ive never seen a chainsaw so finicky about starting. And Ive had a few chainsaws. Once its started its a awesome chainsaw. Lots of power. Tip: One pull choked. Move choke to 1/2 way, the use a zip tie to keep the throttle wide open. Pull cord until it starts, move zip tie off throttle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw I bought this saw used, it was hardly used. It is a great saw for felling small trees, I have a 16 inch bar on it. Light/Heavy, for me it gets heavy after using it for a long time, but I am young. My Brother uses an 039 most of the time and when he uses my MS250 he thinks it is really light. We are clearing up a fairly big lot and it has held up great. Over all a great LIGHT saw.
