Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great power to weight ratio Saw is great once you figure out the M-Tronic system. I am still wondering if Stihl has quite figured it out. I love not having to tune the saw in the field. Overall it is a great machine. I cut 3 cords of pine in just a few hours and that was with the green safety chain. Saw has alot of power for the weight. I will likely get the 25" bar so I dont have to bend over so far for limbing as I am 6'3". I really wish Stihl included more information about calibrating the MTronic system for altitude change and temps. I live at 8000 feet and cut up to 12000 feet. The saw needed to idle for a while at each spot. Glad i brought the old 029 to limb while it warmed up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Added 25" bar. Standard 20" bar great for most projects however the added capability of the 25" makes this saw excellent. Love the wrap handle and it's added balance.Power just great and fuel efficiency is not terrible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaner the motor the faster they burn up. Old products are better. The new efficeint motors do not leff but a month or 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Pro Saw I purchased this saw after going back and forth between the next closest competitor saw. When researching and shopping for a 60cc saw the MS362 CM wrap handle kept coming to the top between my two comparisons. Besides Stihl having a very solid dealer support network in my area this saw just simply had better factory features than anything else I could find. Wrap handle, dual felling spikes, and a chain catcher all stock helped me arrive to my final decision. I bought this saw from Act Automotive in Flora IL and couldn't be happier with my service at the time of the sale. They were very quick and responsive with literally my "last minute" order to get the saw before a weekend.I set this saw up with a 25" bar which has had some mixed opinions on the popular forums. I specifically say opinions because my dealer said the pro guys that he sells the MS362's to sets them up this same way.I have only operated this saw for about two hours but the grin has lasted for a couple of days now. This saw did exactly what it was supposed to do. It started up perfect, idled well and most importantly I buried the bar numerous times in that two hours cutting down a maple and was very pleased with the performance. I am pleased with the performance after a couple of tanks of fuel and I know this saw is expected to get stronger over the next several tanks. This saw was probably the most expensive 60cc pro saw I looked at, but the quality far outweighs the competition. I am so pleased with the quality of this saw that I plan on selling my current other brand pro 50cc saw and buy a MS 261 CM to accompany this saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little Pro Saw,That cuts it. I have three saws,My favorettes, Ms.-391 and Ms-362RC-M, both saws, are equal, in power,391 with 25in. bar, and 362 with 28 in. bar,but the 362 one pound lighter,is worth the extra money if cutting, and bucking , all this Lodgepole, rounds, in northern Cal. the little saws, that could, try-em and you'll say WOW.
