MS 362 C-M
MS 362 C-M is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trail Maintenance As I use this chainsaw for trail maintenance, I needed a saw that had good power, supported a decent bar length, and was not overwhelmingly heavy. The MS 362 C-M fits the bill. We have taken the saw into woods twice now and cut over 50 trees. The saw has been performing well and I am glad to have upgraded to Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Saw! I struggled to justify spending the extra money and upgrade to the pro series saw. I've owned three other Stihl chainsaws, the 031, 290, and the 361. The power and performance of the 362c-m is far beyond any other saw I have ever used. I read many of the reviews and was concerned about some of the problems other people were having. The dealer assured me I was making the right choice by going with 362 c-m. I ran 3 tanks of gas through the saw with the synthetic oil mix the dealer recommended the next day. After the initial choking for the first start up, the saw started with one pull every time the rest of the day. Even and refueling the saw started with one pull ! I didn't use the compression release button most of the time because it pulled over so easy. The pro-grade chains (green) made a huge difference too. I cut off and on for 6 six hours, stopping to remove brush and never had to stop to sharpen or change the chain. Falling trees with this saw gives the operator a good sense of confidence knowing you have plenty of power and control. The owners manual said the saw reaches it's peak performance after 8 to 10 tanks of fuel has been used through the saw. I'm already impressed at three! All and all so far I give the 362c-m an A+. Time will tell but I am very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw This saw has been great, it starts easy usually in 2 pulls even when cold. The power is amazing especially after 8 tanks of fuel. It's power to weight ratio is incredible I have a 25 inch bar it cuts like butter as long as it's sharp even in red oak and Ash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proffesional saw at a fair price, that lets the saw do the work. Great saw, bought with 25 inch bar, first job 40 inch across ash tree, cut great, good power, did the job complete . Went back and bought the 36 inch bar and chain for future bigger trees.. Proud to own it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 1st Stihl Product only ran for 5 minutes before I had issues. We bought a 362 for work and were happy with it. I have been running Poulans for years up at my Cabin. Decided to spend the cash and buy a good saw for myself so I went with the 362 because we just got one at work. I got it home and only cut about 10 logs before it started spitting and sputtering and wouldn't idle anymore. If I let it sit and cool down and re-start it would idle. Re-tried it again with the same issues so I had to drive back 60 miles to where I bought it and they replicated the same problems I was having. Now its in the shop for who knows how long since they are backed up with repairs. So much for buying an expensive reliable saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw This has been an excellent saw. I've owned it for about a year, plenty of power to run a 25" bar. Easy to start, lightweight. Only negative is the top of the engine housing is plastic. A small piece of wood got dropped on it in the trailer and cracked it.
