Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Bought this a year ago after fighting half the summer with another name brand. The starting ease and cutting power compared to the other saw is remarkable. I'm totally impressed and would definately buy another STIHL saw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am greatly disappointed. I recently purchased an MS250. The dealer fired it up supposedly. Three days of trying to start the thing with total failure. It occasionally will hit but that is all. I have been using chainsaws for a number of years and have never had this much of a problem starting one up. Thankfully I have a chain store brand which fires up reliably.. I think I may trade this Stihl for another of the chain store brand for considerably less cost.. My previous Stihl was excellent so I thought I would get a new one. My last Stihl was purchased over 30 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Does what I need it to do. Using it for home use and for clearing limbs at my hunting property. It won't see daily use, but so far its performed very well. My local Stihl dealer did the initial start up and show me the ins and outs of the saw. Read the manual as well. My first time starting the saw, required me to pull the rope a few more times than I would've liked. I pulled 5 times in the cold choke position, then moved to warm choke for 5 pulls and finally started after I put it in normal run position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for better I've had this saw for almost 5 years. Never let me down. I have abused it but also serviced it regularly somewhat. Let warm up for 2 minutes when cold, clean wiith pick and blow gun after each use, and use a 1" paint brush to clean around gas and oil ports before opening. Only problem I've had is a clip coming loose in the wrap around handle. I would say I've ran probably 10 gal of fuel through it over the years, mostly when it was new and was cutting trails at my friends house. Cut about any type of wood green or rotted, burry it in dirt and so on. Original chain that is been sharpened so much teeth are breaking off. Original plug, cleaned once 2 years ago, original filter, original bar, original clutch(about half wore through on sprocket. Never flooded it (followed starting directions) and started easily every time. Maybe I got lucky but I love this saw and am extremely pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependability, and plenty of power! I have owned a few saws, not one of them hold a candle to my MS 250. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. I highly recommend this machine.
