Rated 5 out of 5 by from floods easily, but solid once you know what not to do Had to go back to store for some pointers on how not to flood machine, but I've had no problems since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw! Everyone loves this saw. It was a frenzy of nearly cannibalistic wood chopping amongst the guys when I first got it and went camping!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good home owners saw First of all, i love this saw. I bought thinking i could do anything with this saw, and it will do it. The question is for how long. Keep in mind, this is not a pro saw. If you have a ton of cutting to do, get a higher end saw. Pro saws use bigger pitch chain, have more power, run faster, and have a more solid magnesium housing. This is a polycarb housing, no oil adjustment, and no chain catcher to protect the sprocket cover from a chain that has come off. You can buy the 262 catcher, and it will fit this saw. I am maticulous with my machines. I use stihl synthetic 50:1 oil and non ethynol fuel. I clean it after every use. I never have starting issues.. It's an all around good saw for what i do. Just a few things i would change. I would definitely recommend to a homeowner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Difficult to Start This was my second chainsaw, and with a dozen wild "weed trees" to cut along the back of my property, I thought I would step up to an 18" better quality" chainsaw. I guess I should have known that I had a "lemon" right from the start. The dealer that sold it to me, always checked the chainsaws by starting them before we complete the purchase and HE had a tough time starting it. It was always a tough start for the 5 or 6 times I used it the first year. Then next year, I brought it out and never was able to start it despite employing a variety of choke combinations. Never should have purchased this dog. I refuse to pay hefty service fees to repair a 2 year old product!! Threw the thing out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chainsaw makes quick work of clearing dead wood This chainsaw works excellently and cuts through tough wood like butter. The selector switch (off, run, 1/2 choke, full choke) is a bit flimsy and seems out of place in an otherwise excellent chainsaw. This saw performs great and does everything I need it to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MS 251 Wood Boss Review The MS 251 Wood Boss is a good saw, but I finding it lacking (power) compared to the MS 250 that it replaced. Other than that the two saws are virtually identical. To me a chainsaw needs that straight (when called upon) power like that of the MS 250, but with the MS 251 one has to get it spooled up before making the cut, and that's not a good look for a quality saw. It is for this reason that I could only give the MS 251 Wood Boos four out of five starts. It's still a quality STIHL product, but every time I use it I miss my old MS 250.
