Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw but, a needle bearing failure causes concern. I love the saw and it has plenty of power but, the needle bearing sleeve failed that the sprocket housing spins on so, had to take it in for repair. The saw has been used very little and I only use it for cutting the larger sections of timber since too heavy to use for general cut up of things so, really surprised to have it fail. I've got two other Stihls that are homeowner series and, they've been through the ringer and back without problems. Luckily, it was within the 1 year warranty period and, I also had the extended warranty due to buying oil at the same time as the saw so, it should get repaired under warranty. It's still in the shop. I bought the professional series saw to hopefully get high level of quality in a large saw but, I'm a little concerned with it at the moment. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by a pro saw for joe everyman I'm not a professional by any stretch, but I work this saw hard. Felling/bucking dead pine and aspen for firewood, cutting trees that have fallen across single track trails, etc. Haven't tried to accomplish a job yet that this saw isn't up to. It's my third Stihl, and probably as big a saw as I'll ever need. If you're out there wondering whether a pro saw is overkill for a regular guy, the answer is no. A great all around saw that makes any job more fun. August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Chainsaw I have Ever Used After beginning my tree removal and landscaping business I knew it was time to stock up on some good quality equipment, Stihl was the way to go. I had purchased 5 brand new saws from Stihl,a 880, a 661, a 362 C-M and a 201 and a 391, but besides the 391 they all were great, but the 362, stood above the rest. A 25 inch bar on this powerhouse of a fuel injected chainsaw has made this tool the best 760 dollars i have ever spent on a power tool. super fast, it always starts, not heavy, not awkward to handle, can run for hours and hours. i had fallen a 190 foot sweet gum and besides to actually cut the tree down with the 661, I used the 362 to do the rest, it never has a problem with overheating, never gives me any issues with starting whether I am down below sea level or up in the higher areas. I have had the saw for 4 months now, and have ran through easily 5 gallons of fuel through it. never an issue. i will say though even though it is quite expensive i have found the chainsaw run optimally with VP Vintage C9, no ethanol and i have it blended to 94 octane and run Stihl oil, best way to keep a saw running greatr. Overall, I cannot thank Stihl Enough for this great saw and i will hope it keeps me smiling every time i start it up. July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this saw! This is the 4th Stihl saw that I own. My first is an 032AV that I bought 33 years ago when I was just finishing high school. The second one is a little 009L that I won in a raffle. I bought an MS290 Farm Boss 3 years ago, when my 032 start having carb problems, which I eventually got fixed.I bought the MS 362C-M 3 weeks ago. When I first started running it, I was under impressed! It bogged down, was very under powered. I got the manual back out and read it again it talked about the computer learning. Wow, did it learn! Tonight I went out for an hour and cut on a giant Ponderosa Pine that I have been working on for a while. This was the first time with this saw. I have a 25" bar and yellow chain. The small end of the log is about 35" and the bigger end is still about 4' . I cut for an hour with a 5 minute fuel stop.I cut 35 rounds of this tree in that time. I couldn't believe how much wood it cut, in such a short time, and how little fuel it used! This tree has supplied my home for 3 years of firewood. It was 5 1/2' on the butt and 189' on the ground. We burn about 4 1/2 cord per year. June 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect saw for the serious woodsman I purchased this saw a year ago after a recommendation from a friend who owned one. I was concerned it would become too heavy overtime. I was wrong. This saw has made my wood cutting so much more efficient. I cut 7-10 cords per season. This saw is well balanced and powerful. Another great product from Stihl!!! I can cut twice the wood in half the time. I never use a limb saw now. I don't want to take the 362 out of my hands. June 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all around saw I am an average 6' 200 Lb male and this saw just fits me perfect. I can work with it all day and love to work with it all day. It isn't too large or too small. It is easy to start and I am proud to have it as a friend June 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw for the money I would recommend this saw for everyone that cuts firewood, best saw for your money . June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by i would buy it again I have had this MS362c for almost a year. I had an 044 which was a good saw but now is tired. I don't regret getting the smaller saw for fire wood and the occasional falling. I really appreciate the isolated hand holds. they really cut down on the felt vibration. when you are into a log whit one of these just reach down with your finger and touch the saw and you will see what i mean. I was reluctant to get into a saw with electronics but has operated flawless so far and i appreciate the auto altitude adjust.I also appreciate the air filter system compared to my 044. it stays much cleaner.I opted for the 28" bar which is comfortable and i don't need to bend over much but i would say the 28" maxes out this saw. I sure it would run stronger with a 24" May 30, 2016
