Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw I've cut with stihl saws for 35 years and have always liked them. I cut 6 to 8 cords of wood each year for firewood. My saw needing replacing and after a lot of research and comparing I went with the MS 362 c-m. I'm getting older and wanted a saw that would do more of the work so I decided to spend the extra couple of hundred dollars and get the professional level saw - so glad that I did. I was out cutting my son (26 years younger) 2 to 1. I've only used it for one season and so far no problems at all. The auto electronic system works fine. I was (still am a little) nervous about not being able to manually adjust the high and low idle, but no problems at all so far. This saw made the loading of the wood the work part instead of the cutting of it. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great workhorse I'm a weekend chainsaw guy, clearing out trees on my families property whenever I get a chance to go out there. Chainsaw runs great as to be expected, I only had an issue on my second day with it. I choked it after it already ran and I flooded the engine. Learned to give it 2 pulls choked, then don't use the choke the rest of the day. Hopefully that little rule will save someone some grief. I run it typically with an 18" bar and an .063 chain which tears through anything I put it up against. I do have a 25" bar for it when needed, but it can get bogged down with it. I was cutting a tree thats been dead for quite a while, and it struggled a little getting through it, but dead hardwood thats dried out and 20" across - yeah, thats gonna require a little patience. My dad has used a 310 for years and the saw feels lighter and more powerful which is why I sprung for it.Some guys splurge on golf clubs, for me its a chainsaw - at least thats what I told the wife ;) August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Starts and runs great! I feel like I am just repeating what everyone else is saying, but my summary line says it all. You can't beat one pull starts every time. Set the start switch, pull, let it warm up, cut.The M-Tronic system has been working awesome for me. I like to think I can adjust almost any small engine carb, but I never enjoyed taking the time to do it. M-Tronic eliminates that, yet it still works! I was hesitant to buy a saw with an electronic component, but the system is simple and reliable...so far.I only have a handful of tanks of fuel through this saw, so it has not reached it's full potential yet. Within the first couple tanks I noticed a difference in power and how the motor sounded like it was starting to run smoother. Every time I use it now, it runs smooth and continues to cut faster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great saw but, a needle bearing failure causes concern. I love the saw and it has plenty of power but, the needle bearing sleeve failed that the sprocket housing spins on so, had to take it in for repair. The saw has been used very little and I only use it for cutting the larger sections of timber since too heavy to use for general cut up of things so, really surprised to have it fail. I've got two other Stihls that are homeowner series and, they've been through the ringer and back without problems. Luckily, it was within the 1 year warranty period and, I also had the extended warranty due to buying oil at the same time as the saw so, it should get repaired under warranty. It's still in the shop. I bought the professional series saw to hopefully get high level of quality in a large saw but, I'm a little concerned with it at the moment. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by a pro saw for joe everyman I'm not a professional by any stretch, but I work this saw hard. Felling/bucking dead pine and aspen for firewood, cutting trees that have fallen across single track trails, etc. Haven't tried to accomplish a job yet that this saw isn't up to. It's my third Stihl, and probably as big a saw as I'll ever need. If you're out there wondering whether a pro saw is overkill for a regular guy, the answer is no. A great all around saw that makes any job more fun. August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Chainsaw I have Ever Used After beginning my tree removal and landscaping business I knew it was time to stock up on some good quality equipment, Stihl was the way to go. I had purchased 5 brand new saws from Stihl,a 880, a 661, a 362 C-M and a 201 and a 391, but besides the 391 they all were great, but the 362, stood above the rest. A 25 inch bar on this powerhouse of a fuel injected chainsaw has made this tool the best 760 dollars i have ever spent on a power tool. super fast, it always starts, not heavy, not awkward to handle, can run for hours and hours. i had fallen a 190 foot sweet gum and besides to actually cut the tree down with the 661, I used the 362 to do the rest, it never has a problem with overheating, never gives me any issues with starting whether I am down below sea level or up in the higher areas. I have had the saw for 4 months now, and have ran through easily 5 gallons of fuel through it. never an issue. i will say though even though it is quite expensive i have found the chainsaw run optimally with VP Vintage C9, no ethanol and i have it blended to 94 octane and run Stihl oil, best way to keep a saw running greatr. Overall, I cannot thank Stihl Enough for this great saw and i will hope it keeps me smiling every time i start it up. July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this saw! This is the 4th Stihl saw that I own. My first is an 032AV that I bought 33 years ago when I was just finishing high school. The second one is a little 009L that I won in a raffle. I bought an MS290 Farm Boss 3 years ago, when my 032 start having carb problems, which I eventually got fixed.I bought the MS 362C-M 3 weeks ago. When I first started running it, I was under impressed! It bogged down, was very under powered. I got the manual back out and read it again it talked about the computer learning. Wow, did it learn! Tonight I went out for an hour and cut on a giant Ponderosa Pine that I have been working on for a while. This was the first time with this saw. I have a 25" bar and yellow chain. The small end of the log is about 35" and the bigger end is still about 4' . I cut for an hour with a 5 minute fuel stop.I cut 35 rounds of this tree in that time. I couldn't believe how much wood it cut, in such a short time, and how little fuel it used! This tree has supplied my home for 3 years of firewood. It was 5 1/2' on the butt and 189' on the ground. We burn about 4 1/2 cord per year. June 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect saw for the serious woodsman I purchased this saw a year ago after a recommendation from a friend who owned one. I was concerned it would become too heavy overtime. I was wrong. This saw has made my wood cutting so much more efficient. I cut 7-10 cords per season. This saw is well balanced and powerful. Another great product from Stihl!!! I can cut twice the wood in half the time. I never use a limb saw now. I don't want to take the 362 out of my hands. June 11, 2016
