Rated 5 out of 5 by from some owners need to read reviews for their issues ! I had an 034 for 20 years and cut lots of firewood of various types and never had a performance issue besides the idle adjustment a couple times. Bought this MS362-C and put a 28" inch light weight bar on it and am glad I did. Premium no alcohol gas is all I ever run in all my power equipment and the 362 starts on the 3rd or 4th pull every time when cold. loses some power on logs over 24" but it's not a big timber saw. I also mix my gas a little rich like .9 gallons to the small bottle of stihl mix. The 034 still ran like new when I horse traded with it. The 362-C will probably be the last saw I'll ever have to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around excellent saw. My first pro saw. 3 tanks of fuel burned so far. Taking it easy on break-in. Excellent power, weight and starting. Love the compression release for startup. Mostly used for firedwood cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cold start, pull the trigger and push the choke down. To cold start the saw all you got to do is pull the trigger and push the choke down. It is a fully automatic computerized choke. It will start on the first pull. Several people in the reviews section here have mentioned it is hard to cold start stating they had to pull 20 or 30 times to get it to start. Okay that's true for saws of 20 years ago. They obviously don't know about the automatic choke. It is advertised on this model and if you read the manual you would know how to use it. I let my saw sit for 2 weeks on a nearly empty tank and all I did was pull the trigger and push the choke down. It started on the first pull. It is an excellent saw especially combined with the yellow pulling style chain. I'm using the 20 inch bar and a 25 inch bar. You have to take your time a little bit more with the 25 in but it still works. If you're going to be cutting Hardwoods larger than 25 in you really should be running a larger saw. This saw will do the work but it will be hard on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 362 Ive had my 362 alittle over 2 years hints the warranty is up and the electronic fuel management is acting up. The saw will not idle. Stilll runs but can't let it idle down or it dies. Overall its a decent saw and has decent power, but for a high end professional saw its not worth the extra money if its not going to last. Ive got a little older 391 saw and haven't had any problems out of it. Its a cheaper homeowner saw. I would think the extra money buying the professional saw it would of out lasted the 391 with no problems.
