Rated 4 out of 5 by from My 6 month review This is my daily saw it's pretty much a good saw. It is a little piggish on gas. Every once in awhile it will only start of its held wide-open. Has plenty of power in the six months I've owned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw I ever handled When you hold this saw in your hands you instantly know your holding something awesome. I can't pick it up without grinning ear to ear. Well worth the money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad apple? What an absolute piece of junk. Do not buy. I repeat, do NOT buy this chainsaw! Problem after problem from day one. It's had a new cylinder and piston put in it, on top of every single warrantable part replaced. Along with a handful of non-warranty parts. Still doesn't run correctly. Much less, as advertised. Supposed to be a professional level saw yet you could walk into Walmart, buy the cheapest saw they have, and it would be more reliable. Extremely dissatisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MS 660 1 year later After 1 year of use I can say the MS 660 is a great saw. Always starts on 1 or 2 pulls, never has needed the choke but you must use the decompression button. I have the 20, 25 and 36 inch bars with Stihl carbide chains, as I cut mostly flood damaged, dirty wood. I have not found a tree that even challenges the saw. After about 4 hours of cutting I may switch to my MS044 as I start to get tired. The MS 660 is heavy but that really does help when cutting a felled tree, just hold the saw and it cuts all by itself. I could not be happier with a chainsaw than I am with my MS660, although my MS044 and 009 rate real close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power demon I added the ms 661 to my fleet this spring. I previously have owned a ms360, ms461, and a 201T, and an old 015L. The 661 I added mostly for milling, running a 36" bar with milling chains on an MK III mill. I have since put a 28" light weight bar on it, and love it. It walks through everything I have cut. Oak, hickory, walnut, nothing makes it bog. Twice after being shut down I could not get it to restart until it cooled off. I'm assuming it was an issue with the M-tronic while it was breaking in, as it has not happened for about five, or six gallons of fuel through it since. I always run super unleaded with the HP Ultra oil, since I had to rebuild the top end of my 360 after twelve years of cutting at least ten cords of wood a year on top of other work. I would say this is a great saw. I have no hesitation in making recommendations for this saw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw I use my MS 661 with my Alaska chainsaw mill to turn timber into lumber on my remote property in Alaska. I make everything from 16' beams to wall studs and planks as thin as 3/4" thick. I use a 20" bar and ripping chain, man does this baby cut! Very fuel efficient and easy to handle. I have been using Sthyl products for over 30 years and have never been let down.
