Rated 5 out of 5 by from good saw Saw starts easily and runs good. This model has the chain with larger teeth and is an aggressive cutter. It may be more saw than the average homeowner needs.For just pruning 6" or smaller limbs, one of the smaller saws would work quite well and cost less than the Wood Boss.The Wood Boss is an excellent saw and I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase 2016! I love this saw and I have probably burned 15 cords of wood in our stove this year. Wood is or only heat source so we go through a ton of it. I was a little worried about it being marketed as a saw that cuts 16-18'' logs but I have cut some huge stumps that are 4' in diameter. It starts up every time and runs for 45min to 1 hr on one tank of gas doing full on sawing the whole time. I have only dulled one saw blade and I am currently working through the second. Once you go STIHL you never go back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from first one great, 2nd one a bust Purchased exact same model in 2011. Great saw, provided all the firewood for our family for 5 years until it was stolen summer 2016. So I purchased the same model during the sale last fall. First time out, chain dull after about 10 rounds. 2nd time I went to start it, it was seized up, sprocket would not turn at all. Returned it to dealer, they said I ran it with chain brake on. I NEVER engaged chain break. However, they did not charge me and fixed it (removed melted plastic). Runs now, but chain smokes and dulls way too fast, can't even get a full load without sharpening chain. I am cutting downed wood stacked above ground. Never had this problem with first one. wondering if Stihl quality is failing? Will be trying another brand next time.
