Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST saw in it's size category! I bought this saw as it is a better alternative to carrying around a heavy, bigger saw all day long. I outfitted it with a 20" Rollomatic ES Light bar. It is perfectly balanced when picking it up to use! The Light bar is worth the additional expense. They are durable as well. I only wish they had been available years ago. This combination saves your shoulders & arms when doing hours of firewood preps. It has plenty of power to do the tasks at hand. Stihl has made improvements to its microprocessor technology since their original introduction. This model's M-Tronic/Intellicarb features have been modified to handle the rigors of heat & vibration exposure. You might want to purchase this saw to use in tandem with a larger felling saw. That way you aren't packing around that weight all day long. I use mine after laying down the big stuff with an MS-661 R-CM.This is just a really great all-around chainsaw

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has been good It is the best saw I have ever used, but it should be as it is the most expensive saw I have ever used. It is not the best saw I have used if you consider the performance per dollar ratio. I was not able to change the bar and chain to the size and type I wanted because the bar is tied to the powerhead's serial number which seems silly. Also, why is a pro saw sold with normal Rollomatic E and safety chain? So if you're like me add the cost of a bar and chain to the total right off the bat. It is easy to start, but I'd prefer not having the decompression button. I would suggest you turn the oiler all the way up before you ever use the saw and even doing so you'll still need more oil. So its good but honestly after using it the only reason I would buy another Stihl is the fact that they are the only dealer support I have access to in my area. If it were less money I'd be much more impressed but when your expectations are set so high due to such a high price it is easy to get let down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 362 Chainsaw The 362 is a great ground saw & light enough to use up in the tree without sacrificing any power !! Awesome saw !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw for firewood. Great all around saw. I run it with a 20” bar and has not disappointed me yet. Little more power over the carb model. Much easier to clean the air filter too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Saw for normal use Do not ever let it fall!! It is a good saw for getting firewood with. I used it to fall a couple trees as well. It has power but not as much as I expected out of a Professional grade saw. Starts great but its still new. Being a Professional grade saw it has metal guards rather than plastic which is a huge + but the fact that the handle is plastic is honestly pathetic. I was going out to cut firewood when it was -10 degrees. Had the chainsaw idling to warm up and it vibrated off of my tail gate and landed in the snow. Being a plastic handle and being so cold the handle snapped into pieces. Ruined the entire day of getting firewood because there was no grab handle for your left hand. If it cant take a fall from under 3' that is just terribly sad, especially for a "Pro grade" saw. My old chainsaw has had multiple trees roll over and land on it, fallen off of the truck multiple times, tumbled down hills etc. Never have I broken an aluminum handle. This saw was less than a week old when this happened. Was the handle cracked before this or had a flaw in the material, I honestly do no know but should never of broken this easy. Good saw for the average user. I wish I could upgrade to an aluminum handle. They do not even offer that as an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Saw is great, lots of power easy start, well balanced, I have a bad shoulder, I needed a bigger Saw because of the size of oak trees I have to take down. I have and always will own a Stihl, but my Farm Boss was a little hard to start. Great Saw, just no comprehension release. This 362 is awesome, 25 inch blade and lots of power ! Bought it at the local Foley hardware store! Travis was a great person to work with..Thank You Tim
