Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Purchased this saw for light home use and light wood cutting. Found this saw difficult to start. First time I tried to start it flooded and would not fire for me even with throttle fully engaged. Not what I expected from a brand new saw. On the plus side, it did cut well and had plenty of power for the small trees I was bucking up. They were only about 6 in diameter so not really a good test of saws ability. Wishing I would have bought a larger saw as have found I cannot upgrade the bar length like I was told at dealer. 18 in is ok but really wanted to upgrade to 20 in bar and chain. Overall a decent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chainsaw I have owned Have bought another brand in past(no STIHL dealers in the area)but they did not last. A local hardware store started carrying STIHL, I grew up with my father using STIHL and we sold wood and he used it 5 days a week. So that is why I bought one. I have 3 acres of woods that I am clearing and so far I am very pleased with the way the saw is performing. Just wish I had bought a STIHL earlier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I had an old Stihl saw that finally died after many years of service and bought this saw as its replacement. I have used it multiple times already and it is everything the old saw was and more. I was lucky to catch it on sale which is even better. I own 3 other Stihl products and will continue to by Stihl, you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Only ran one tank of fuel through it but was impressed. I bought the Stihl fuel-a little pricey but doubles the warranty. Started with 3 pulls. Sawed through red and white oak with ease. 18 inch bar is all it wants but I traded a little hp for weight. I had used the Farm Boss 29 for 26 years without any repair. Got the little brother MS 170 a few years back. Great "little" saw. Just wanted a lighter saw with similar power to the Farm Boss. We will see how it holds up but love it out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very dependable saw I love this saw! It's light enough to carry without issue but powerful enough to cruise through everything I've put it through. It starts every time and works until I quit. The only issue I have is not with the saw but with the starting instructions. In every review that I've read on Stihl saws, users say to set the choke on full and pull twice; NO MORE. Move to run mode and the saw should start after a few pulls. If you pull more than twice you'll flood it and spend the next 10 minutes wearing yourself out. The owners manual says nothing about this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saw I have owned several Chain Saws in my 71 years on this earth but this has to be the best of them all. Easy to start, easy to handle and very simple instructions on every aspect of the saw. I have not had it long and only used it once for a couple of hours but I could not be happier. My small engine repair guy recommended only Stihl and he was on the money correct.
