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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reliable saw, starts easy every time!! Don't listen to "won't start" or "hard to start" reviews!! 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. I burn ethanol free high octane fuel and Stihl synthetic oil and this saw runs like a champ.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MS 250 The first time I used the chainsaw it fell apart. The chain went flying and the back came off. I had to take it back to the store and have them repair it. They did give me a free chain though because I had no idea where it went. After that the saw has been good. It seems to heat up rather quickly when cutting wood.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to get started! Bought chainsaw on a Friday and after I brought it home I could not get it started.Tried again on Saturday and now 0-2! Watched U-Tube video Saturday night about this chainsaw's difficult starting habits.I felt better knowing I wasn't the only person having starting problems. Sunday I finally got it started after several attempts. I must have removed the spark plug a dozen times per the instructions to finally get this "tool" working.This is not what I expected from this brand. I don't know if I could rely on this product in an emergency. Hopefully it starts and is more reliable during the break-in period and I acquire the know how to make it happen.I will admit that once I got it started it did cut wood with ease.I used the chainsaw again (week later) and only had to pull the spark plug once since it failed to start initially again!Good Luck!
