MS 362 C-M
MS 362 C-M is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 180.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 362 cuts wood like butter! My sons and I went out to take care of a widow-maker last Sunday. We always take the old 026 with us, but I had a surprise for them this time. The day before I purchased a new MS 362 C-M to add to the arsenal. The old saw is sharp and runs well, but the saw went through the maple 3 times as fast. WOW! Anyone using this saw will not be disappointed. We intended to cut for about 45 minutes and return to the farm for lunch. Mom was a little upset when we came back 3 hours later. (She was pleased to see the boys so happy!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Easy to start, Awesome to operate I've only ran one tank of gas though the saw so far but I'm loving it so far. Starts on the first or second pull everytime. 20" bar lets it rip through the wood easily with a nice sharp chain. The location of the decompression valve is in a nice spot easy to pop open with thumb before roping. I like the 3 position on/off switch, with the off position returning back to on once letting go. Fuel and oil tanks are nice sized for long run times. The newer designed bar side cover allows for an additional spike with the holes already drilled out. Price is a little steep but as long as the saw runs for many years, I'll be happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw I wanted more power then my MS261, which is now my limbing saw, and the confidence with more power to tackle larger jobs. The MS362 does just that. Plenty of power, handles the 20" bar with ease, and starts reliably. I have found my "groove" with this saw, and now have what I believe to be a reliable arsenal of STIHL saws to tackle anything the woods here throw at me.Can't go wrong with this saw, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One hungry saw Replacing a 390 Stihl with my first pro series saw was a move I should have made a long time ago. Having both a 20" & 25" bar, I was amazed that this saw feels like it performs better with the longer bar! Light weight, with more durable components, how could you go wrong? Starts right up and makes me not want to shut it off, it's a beast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my first Stihl product Chainsaw cut really well when the chain was new. Had plenty of power. Restarting after use was sometimes difficult. Figured out how to get it started. You have to hold the throttle fully open while pulling. Do this a few times and it should start. Recommended, turn the chain automatic oiler to maximize oil flow. Better to have more oil than a dry chain. Good fuel efficientsy. When you fill gas fill the oil reservoir at the same time, minimizing down time. I am really impressed with this model and would highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hot Starting Problem My MS362 C-M will not re-start after getting it hot until it has time to cool down. I suspect it is a heat soak problem after the saw is turned off and the temperature inside the case initially rises, signaling the electronics through its temperature sensors not to permit re-starting. After the saw has time to cool down it will re-start and run beautifully until I turn it off and the problem repeats. Frustrating. But when the saw is running, it cuts beautifully. My typical operating conditions are above 8500 feet of elevation, temperature in the high 80's to low 90's, with very low humidity.
