Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw is a Beast I have run Stihl farm saws for many years in the South, felling oak, hickory, walnut and pine. The 291 & 310 were both fine saws, but they ain’t in the same league as the MS362 CM! Just bought the saw this weekend and fell, limbed and blocked two half dead gigantic post oaks in south central Texas, and they stood no chance with my new saw. Had to purchase with the 25” bar/chain combo, but on the way to dealership I asked to put a yellow link chain on a 20” bar, and that is what I ran with. I have several trees that may require the larger bar, but for now I will stick with the 20”.This saw is ALL a man could ask for!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw, redesign needed for choke rod Saw runs good with plenty of power for moderate to larger jobs. Main complaint is the choke rod assembly being lost due to operator error. The change from a 4 position run selector to a 3 position run selector ( operated by throttle trigger) is causing the rod to be dislodged and can only turn the saw off by using the decompression switch. We have a fleet of 25 saws and users of varying skills with many forcing the selector into the run position (old habits) which dislodges the choke rod. Please redesign so this is user friendly and at a least can re attach the rod before it’s lost and have to replace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! Upgraded to the Stihl MS 362 C-M chainsaw, used it for a full day and it exceeded my expectations. Went back to the dealer the next day because I wasn't familiar with its sawchain changing process. Got a 15 minute tutorial that covered not only changing and tightening the sawchain but also a complete maintenance overview. Love my new Stihl chainsaw and my Stihl dealer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from some owners need to read reviews for their issues ! I had an 034 for 20 years and cut lots of firewood of various types and never had a performance issue besides the idle adjustment a couple times. Bought this MS362-C and put a 28" inch light weight bar on it and am glad I did. Premium no alcohol gas is all I ever run in all my power equipment and the 362 starts on the 3rd or 4th pull every time when cold. loses some power on logs over 24" but it's not a big timber saw. I also mix my gas a little rich like .9 gallons to the small bottle of stihl mix. The 034 still ran like new when I horse traded with it. The 362-C will probably be the last saw I'll ever have to buy.
