Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw is a light weight work horse. this is a Great saw for cutting down Locust trees I This is the king of fuel efficiency and easy use the saw is a little pricey but in the long run you'll get your money worth with the M-tronic system. They could have done away with the decompression value. If you can't start it with out the value you should let someone else do the work for you. But all an all this is the saw to get , it will last a life time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If all else fails, read the directions. I recently left liberal Oregon and moved to Montana. When I was a young man, I worked in the woods of Idaho and ran Stihl Saws. The 056 was the top dog in the woods at that time. I personally ran the 038 Super and Magnum, so when I went to our local Stihl saw shop looking for another professional saw for firewood cutting on our property I was looking for a similar saw as to what I was accustom to operating. This is where I found the MS 362 (Non M-Tronic). It blew me away when I first picked it up because, it was so light as compared to the 038's. Then I got it home and started felling and bucking trees on our property using a 25" Rollomatic ES bar and 3/8th. full skip (yellow) chain. This saw is a beast and gets stronger with every tank full. It starts in cold and in warm climates with one pull. I cannot say anything bad about this saw all I can say is, run non-ethanol fuel, sit down, read, study and fully understand the instruction manual of not only your saw, but of any power equipment you purchase and if you are still having difficulties, contact your Stihl "Professional" dealer for assistance. No, I do not work for nor am I endorsed by Stihl. I have only used their products for many years with great success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine is a lemon. I love saws from this company and I'm sure that this model is excellent as well, however, my particular saw is proving to be very unreliable as it is always impossible to start after its been running for 20 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tree dropping beast. Had the saw for 2 years not a single issue. The decompression valve makes starting the saw a breeze. At first I was rather skeptical about the M-tronic auto adjusting carb but it has definitely came through and I see absolutely no loss of power.I thoroughly enjoy the saw and recommend it too anyone who can handle the power of this beast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My .02 This is a wood cutting son of a gun! You better be ready to stack lots of fire wood!. I've own 4 Stihl chainsaws in my 57 yrs, however the 362 out cuts them all. I replaced my last saw a Stihl 028AV w/18" bar with the new Stihl 362 CM 20" bar Please be careful not to flood the saw trying to start it! If, so just waiting 10-15 mins then restart the saw. I'm also using professional chains vs homeowners chains BIG DIFFERENT!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy Bought my 362 from ace and it was great for 1-1/2 years and gave out. Had it re built and lasted an hour with explanation. I been given an option of another rebuilt 362 or pay for another after waiting on a warranty that in mind im told was of out of warranty but the saw was well with in warranty when it gave up. I didn't respond in time now I'm facing 8 months without direct use of the saw and only option is another rebuilt 362 ( not to excited about) or pay the difference for a different saw that is also a rebuilt saw ugg...
