Rated 5 out of 5 by "Now this is a saw!' I've waited five years to write this review because I wanted to truly test this piece of equipment. I've used this saw to maintain 13+ acres of forested property in addition to bucking four chords of oak and pine each winter. Like clock work, on the fourth pull using the choke along with two more pulls this saw begins, "humming like a song." With the 25" bar I cut through 99% of the trees I fell or am cleaning from our property. You can easily limb, fell and buck any tree quickly. The only legitimate problem I have had is that the saw will "bog down" when cutting 18" or larger trees especially when I bite the dogs into the bark. I rarely use the dogs anymore unless I'm making a back-cut when felling. Besides that one short coming, I really enjoy using this extraordinarily dependable piece of equipment. October 25, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by This saw will not stay running brand new I have owned several Stihl 362's. They have all been great until the new c model with auto tune. We bought 5 of these saws to replace our old 362's. Whatever the sales people tell you about how much better they are its not true. I have heard the same from other crews who bought them. When they get hot they shut down, and then require constant restarting if you can get them to start at all. Terrible saw October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 362cm love it Bought this saw with a 25 inch bar I use it for felling and limbing. It starts easier than my ms150 top lie. A previous review I read described the saw as one that purrs like an angry true! This saw is a pleasure to use if you don't have one you need one! October 17, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw This saw has a wonderful easy to start engine with really good power. I cut 14 cord of firewood every season and this saw can keep up. October 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect midde of the road product I bought the MS 362 C-M 20" and I am pretty impressed with all the new features. It fires right up, easy to start, and gets the job done. I'm not sure about the smaller bars but it's slightly underpowered for the 20" bar. I could not imagine using it with the 25" bar. I live in the Northeast. It has no problems with smaller trees and limbing but it becomes a little underpowered when you start getting into medium sized trees and bucking. The vibration control and weight is ideal. I can run up and down the ladder and use it all day without much effort.The oil adjustment screw is pretty tiny and tough to find if your saw is dirty.Overall it's a good buy if you're just the occasional user or fell mainly smaller trees. However, I would jump up into the 461 if I had it to do all over again. October 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw rips. I bought the 362 cm for cutting up logs for firewood. I have zero complaints. It starts easily, runs great, and rips up oak as if it were pine. The anti vibration measures stihl has taken are noticeable. I'm happy with the size of the gas tank too as I need to stop for a refill less often. This is a nice saw. October 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A really good saw. This is definitely a great saw. It starts easy every time. It has some weight to it but nothing inconvenient or uncomfortable. You can tell from the feel it's a pro saw. As great as this saw is I can't help but think at times it's a little under powered. I'm cutting red oak and most of the time it cuts like a hot knife through butter, but out will bog down if you get a little to aggressive with it. It's a fine line between out running like a beast and and wanting to fall on it's face. And yes that's with a freshly sharpened chain. All in all I wouldn't hesitate to buy this saw again or recommend out to someone else. September 29, 2016
