Rated 5 out of 5 by Best in the world I tried other products for the last 20 years.I used this product around the house and in the forest. It's reliable and doesn't give me any problems. August 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect saw! Pretty much the ideal saw from its light weight, well laid out power head and uber ergonomic rap around handle and silky smooth anti vibration functioning to it's hard hitting no holds barred wood ripping power band that slices through rounds like a hot knife through butter. It amazes me every time! To say that I like this saw would be an understatement. Would I recomend it? Hmm... Let's see... Only if you want the best mid sized saw money can buy. Heh. Yeah I'd recommend it. August 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Last saw you'll ever buy! I've had this saw for about 5 months and I have to say I have no complaints. I use this saw for about 3-5 hours every day and it's the perfect saw. One of the main reasons I bought this saw was not only for the power, but for the curved handle, it offers so many different ways of cutting and if you're in a tough spot it's super convenient. This saw can take on any tree you throw at it. Yes, it's pricey but all STIHL is because of the quality behind the name. Like any big saw it is fuel thirsty, so get a 5 gallon gas can instead of a 2.5 May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ms 362 still running fantastic I have owned this saw for 4 years now. I use in the winter and in the summer. Always starts in 5 pulls. It has a easy to adjust air block that let's you go from outside air to air off the warm engine. I have "never" had to adjust the carb. Cold being (16f) to warm being (85f). Just flip the air block. I have never even changed the spark plug. Great power to weight ratio! I can cut for hours and still feel like doing more when I'm done. I do know that running 87 octane is a no no. Need to run only premium fuel. (92 octane). Which I run in all my stihl tools. Love the saw! Spend the extra money and buy the ms 362r. It comes with a full rap handle and duel spikes for just a very small amount more vs just the normal ms 362. To try to convert a saw to the (R) model costs quite a bit more. Either way you'll love the saw!y March 22, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw for the right tasks! When you're looking at all the saws Stihl offers, be very sure you're getting the right one for you. Go talk to your dealer and see what they recommend. I personally use the 362 for a variety of projects. I'm a resource conservation and fire sciences student at the University of Montana which means the saw it seeing a ton of varied use. Ranging from thinning projects, active fire use, bucking blocks for our timbersports team and even using the saw for competitions occasionally. This is a great mid size saw, I regularly use larger Stihl saws on thinning projects and at work but I come back to this saw regularly and always bring it with me! November 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw This is my favorite saw. I have several saws for carving and this saw is great. I use it all day long, every day. Has no cons June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 Stihl saws Needed a 60cc saw to supplement my 25y.o. 028 Super. My 362 R C-M is FANTASTIC ! Easy starting, Great power & balance, I heat with wood & cut approx. 30 cords annually. I also use my saws for disaster cleanup. If every product that we purchased was as rugged, well made & long lasting as these Stihl saws, we would all be wealthier! October 30, 2014
