Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value and power in one saw. I've owned six different chainsaws and have settled with the Stihl line of saws. I work for a land management agency and have used some high dollar saws but have settled with the Stihl brand. Dependability, value and strength are standard Stihl qualities. The 250 is an excellent saw for what I use it for. Fuel wood cutting and small home projects is it's main purpose. For a dependable saw, you can't go wrong with a Stihl. Just make sure you get the right size powerhead for the job your doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lotsa Cuttin For Lightweight Saw I've used Stihl products and saws for over 30 years and many of the pro saws. So found myself at dealer last year and couldn't pass up great price. I figured just for limbing but I was really surprised by the versatility. Power for firewood and light enough to use all over. Never had any problems starting. I'm comfortable loaning this saw as perfect for most needs. I send Motomix with it to guarantee proper fuel and send extra chain and chaps and helmet. Cover starting procedure. Most were fed up with their big box or discount store saws. I could've sold this saw several times. I just send them to local Stihl independent dealer knowing that they be well taken care of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for the price. Bought this saw last fall to add to the collection. Have ran probably 10 tanks through it. Starts every time with no problems. Would definitely recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for firewood. Has the right weight balancing with the power Great saw for the money. Loses power every now and then due to the carbon screen filling up with residue. Other then that great performance for the size.

I've been using this saw for 5 years.Steps for success:Read the Stihl manual start procedure! Don't rely on videos on the internet or forums...Stihl gives you the answer and it works every time.
