Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power and balance Bought this saw to replace an aging 55cc saw from another manufacturer, and wow, what a difference. Ease of starting was the first bonus of the new saw, it is easy to start cold and easy to restart when warm/hot. The power is amazing and the saw is well balanced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very well constructed saw Very easy starting, idle is excellent and never stalls between cuts, awesome power. Glides through 20 inch trees like a hot knife through butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! I have owned many saws over the years, primarily for cutting my own firewood, some I have liked and others were just ok. This is the first saw that I have had that I am excited to get it out of the case as I know it is up the to task. It starts easy and cuts easy without working me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice saw, not too heavy with a 20" bar, excellent power I purchased this saw to replace a Stihl 034 AV that I brought back home to use. Wt. wise it is about right, not too heavy, with plenty of power for handling beech and maple in the UP. I had a 25" bar on the saw, which I replaced with a 20";this length handles better in my hands and is ideal for limbing and bucking. I have only had the saw for a short time, so cannot comment on long term reliability, although, if anything like my other Stihl saws, I expect it to continue to perform well. The only problem I have had thus far was my own doing in that I flooded the engine by leaving the starting lever on choke too long. This was easy to remedy--simply remove the cover, take out the plug and dry off, turn engine over several times with the starting switch in the OFF position, replace plug and problem solved. Since that episode I have had no issues with starting. I would recommend using a high octane gas and premium oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 handle...no lie. A previous review I read described the saw as one that purrs like an angry kitten...so true! This saw is a pleasure to use if you don't have one you need one!
