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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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
