Rated 2 out of 5 by Too many problems out of the box Overall poor quality is dragging this brand down. Chain oiler is unreliable and often overheated chain. Oiler Smoked when I was cutting or waiting to cut. Engine would not idle well, revved high for no reason. Chain would stop in mid cut or between cuts. No break used. Would have to restart chain by pushing it against wood. The nut to secure bar wouldn't come off, rather the entire bolt unwound! Due to so many problems, I think quality and store site assembly strategy is destroying the brand. I hope I just got a bad one, but who cares about warranty if it's always in shop getting repaired? Huge disappointment. September 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by father in laws chainsaw is very durable, dependable, and user friendly I borrowed my fathernlaws chainsaw, for a big clean up of our new home that we bought. I haven't ever used a chainsaw very often and so for me to get out and cut trees down for firewood and other smaller saplings for nearly every weekend for the last three weeks without any hiccups. The only hiccup I have had is keeping the three chains sharpened with the all day cutting. This 251 is a good chainsaw and the reason I was on here is to check out the price of a brand new one so I can own my own Stihl 251. As you know, its not so easy to ask the fathernlaw to borrow his tools lol. So I am getting my own stihl! September 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fair saw Good saw over all. Started out well. After the break in period, saw began to miss and was just not running right. Major loss of power and very difficult to get started. Changed the plug and took apart the housing to ensure the air flow was not obstructed. No obvious signs. I am hoping it was just a bad plug, but only time will tell. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw This is a great saw! I have been using various chainsaws over the past 10 years. This saw by far was the best saw I've used. September 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by If chain oiler worked better it would be hard to beat. Cut up one pecan limb about 8 inches diameter and chain will not cut. Upon further inspection it was every other tooth that was worn. The teeth between shows no wear at all. I think I could spit more than the oiler puts out. Stihl should sell plenty of chains with this product. September 13, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by "Like a Boss" In having used a Farm Boss several times before, I was very pleased with the performance of my 251 Wood Boss. The more compact size and less weight made it perfect for all day use. I ran it for about 15 hours over the course of my fist week and not the slightest issue with the product. It's simple, ingenious manufacture makes clean up and maintenance a breeze. I highly recommend this product and to recommend to other potential customers that this saw can cut a lot more than you would think. September 12, 2016
