Rated 3 out of 5 by from Restarts poorly After the saws been running and then you shut it down, you go to restart it within 5 minutes it starts very poorly have to pull it 20 times. Had a 35 year old wood boss was a much better saw more power more reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice saw I have had the saw for about out year. It starts up every time with out a fuss. ( I put full choke on, pull 2-3 times ( it stutters), put half choke on, pull once, let it run for 10-15 seconds till the chain starts spinning, turn choke off and start cutting)Cuts great. I have been using it to clear my wooded lot that I plan on building on in the future. So far I have cleared a 20 x 220 path for my driveway. The saw has a little bit of weight, but not to bad. There is not much vibration as I'm cutting. The location of the gas and chain oil is very nice, easy to poor into with out making a mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw simply works as it should Fell a large tree. and limbed about 4 big oaks. All with one chain. After using cheap saws and getting maybe a day of decent use I was just sick of messing with them and being stuck in the middle of a project. Stihl is used by professionals for a reason. It is a great saw. Planning on replacing many of a lawn and garden tools with stihl products. Next up is a weed trimmer for sure. I tend to buy one every year because the cheap ones just give me fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice all around saw I was in the market for a new saw and had been using my father-in-laws Stihl Farm Boss. Naturally I gravitated towards the Farm Boss but after talking to the dealer, he convinced me to try the MS251 Wood Boss. For cutting medium trees and carrying a lot, this saw has plenty of power and very easy to handle while limbing. Great Saw!!!!
