MS 362 C-M
MS 362 C-M is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 169.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent saw I've been using chainsaws since the 1960s and now at almost 70 years of age I needed adequate power with less weight. My 362C fits nicely. It"s efficient and fast cutting. Actually, it cuts faster than some of my heavier saws from years gone by. It starts easily and dependably, and is the safest saw I've ever had. With a 20 inch bar it's well balanced and will quickly process everything I need. I've had bad luck with off brand bar and chain oil, so I recommend using Stihl oil. If your saw will stay in the case for weeks or months at a time, use the pre mixed fuel; it's much more dependable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth every penny Have only run 4 tanks of gas through it, but am very impressed with this saw. I had a farm boss 291 and was looking to upgrade to a little bigger saw. Cut 15-20 cords a year and this saw will make it much quicker.

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.
