Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great antivibe Just bought this saw a few months ago and absolutely love it. From what I've seen they had a few problems when they first came out, but it seems they have solved the issues. The most notable feature for me is the antivibe system. I've been running an 044 for years, and once I ran this saw I was in love. Smooth as silk. I was a little nervous about the M-tronic, but I love the way it runs and after watching a video that showed a breakdown of it, I see how simple it actually is. I can see how it is actually better than a standard carb. I needed a saw with more power and this has delivered beyond expectations. I must say for the size of this saw the weight is really quite manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Piece of Equipment. Purchased the 661 thinking it would be a neutered 660 to fit in with our changing times and EPA Regulations etc. I was wrong this saw has in many situations outperformed my 660's and 066. I do NOT do out of the box reviews so I waited 2 months to voice my opinion. This thing is a beast and very reliable! Running a 32" Bar and Chain to tackle Bur Oak's and Catalpa's. Stihl hit one out of the park in my opinion with the "Improved 660". I run alcohol free gasoline so I watch my fuel costs and have noticed it is more efficient. For a lack of better terms I get better fuel mileage with the 661. So if you need Artillery for back up on tough jobs here it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True powerhouse tool A serious saw for the real tough jobs. Starts easily and has an enormous amount of power. The M-Tronic system has been flawless so far. The saw is a bit heavy but the saw does all the work. You will not notice the weight on the tough cutting tasks. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny To everyone who has complained about not starting when hot there's no need for choking it hit the decompression button and one pull it up and running. As far as the nuts coming loose I have never had a problem as far as I am concerned it's a great saw the best money can buy and if you take care of it it will never do you wrong, and respect it its not a toy very powerful a little bit on the heavy side but not bad

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw, some issues Overall this saw is a beast! With great balance and aggressive cuts. Problems with starting it back up during heavy work load, waiting 10 to 15 min for it to cool down is annoying!!!! I like the mc441 more lighter not much difference in power. No down time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I have to say with all the reviews I have read I was a bit skeptical about this product. I must say with the 25” or 30” I am impressed!!! I have cut around 40 trees so far and it has not slowed down. I cut around 50 rick a year and needed a reliable saw, don’t be afraid to give this one a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built Alaska Tough! I bought this saw two years ago and have used it extensively to cut old growth hemlock and sitka spruce on my land. This saw handles the big stuff like none other. I have put countless of hours on this saw under some extreme conditions and it never misses a beat! Plenty of power to cut through the biggest logs with total ease! Best investment I've made in a long time. This saw has made my life much easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not hesitate! I read a bazillion reviews when shopping for a saw for tornado clean up. I chose this saw despite some of the complaints and I am proud to say that I have experienced none of the issues outlined in other reviews. This thing is bad to the bone. We have 100 year old oaks and pines on our property and I haven't ran into one yet that can slow this saw down. It will work all day long without a hiccup. Do not hesitate to buy this saw. Do not worry about it being heavy, it does all the work for you (or you can hit the gym). It will get into a cut and pull right through it. I have never experienced anything like it with any other saw. This is the only way to go!
