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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chainsaw has a perfect power to weight ratio. I bought my first stihl saw about 20 years ago.It was the 066 magnum,and it sure did a great job for me. It was used to fell trees and for everyday firewood cutting. I sold this saw due to lack of work. i recently purchased the new MS 661 magnum and WOW is this the saw for me. Plenty of power and very easy to start and surprisingly light weight for its class. This saw will do it all. LOVE MY STIHL. Todd G Robertson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful saw and glad I bought it I needed a 36" bar saw and found the 661 and one other brand's saw. I have a smaller stihl saw so I went with the 661 due to brand awareness. To be honest if it wasn't for this for this specific difficult cut I probably wouldn't have spent so much on a saw but I'm glad I did. The only issue I have had is trying to restart a hot saw but a cleaning of the plug seemed to do the trick. The saw has a huge amount of power and so far I am very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Saw This is a great saw for large jobs. It can be a bit heavy after about an hour of use but it can get the job done.I was hoping that it would have just a bit more power than it does, but it still does what I need. Can be a bit tough to start at times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from chain blade nuts spin off while in use no matter how tightly torqued First of all , I run a tree service and got this saw to cut tree stumps. Plenty of power but blade nuts spin off after about one minute of use. No matter how tight, there's been times I thought I was going to break the stud off. I had to buy nylon self locking nuts to use it. Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice hefty saw Shy of an 880 for milling or clearing the rainforests - I can't imagine anyone needing a bigger saw. The 661 is a beast. It don't find huge power advantage over the 461, but it's noticeable. Love the MTRONIC. This saw doesn't let down.
