Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for the price Purchased the Stihl MS251 Woodsman Easy Start chain saw and it has worked great. Easy to start, comfortable to operator, and has plenty of power. I have owned several competitors saws and after using their products several times I had to return to the repair shops. The Stihl saw has surpassed any saw I have owned. I use the recommended octane fuel, additivies, and high end chain saw oil. So far this saw has exceeded my expectations!!! October 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use and start This saw is well worth the money .I have the ms -251 saw and it is still a great saw. October 16, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Thumb wheel chain adjustment good idea but does not work I purchased this chain saw about 2 weeks ago. While it is easy to start and runs well the thumb wheel chain adjustment is of poor quality. When you try to adjust the chain tension the thumb wheel is very very difficult to move. I feel like it is going to break a part. I regret having purchasing this model as it does not work as intended. Wish I would have bought the cheaper manual adjustment model. October 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has great features Saw starts and runs well, light easy to maintain. However the saw is short on power. If cutting a tree that takes the entire bar the saw runs out of power. Smaller trees do just fine. October 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Saw I Have Ever Owned!! I have used this saw for over 2 years now. I have never had any problems. I have cut many cords of wood. The saw has never failed to start or quit for no reason. I would recommend this saw to anyone who needs a dependable saw that's so easy to use. October 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by The Quick chain tensioner is a little tricky, but it works. This saw has worked well for me, Having a bad shoulder the Easy 2 Start system works very well. The fact is, it starts with very little effort. With very little vibration from the engine and, being light weight this is a great saw. September 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Primer bulb breaking and coming off After the first year of small tree/branch cutting, one of the hose connectors of the primer bulb broke and the saw leaked gas during refueling. Dealer replaced the primer bulb, but after two tanks of gas, it fell off on the ground. Dealer reinstalled the primer bulb and I'll cut some more 20" rounds tomorrow to see the fix was permanent.
