MS 661 C-M
MS 661 C-M is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Operator Added the 661 last year as my second M-Tronic (362 cm). Nice improvements. I still kept my 660 and 362 as well. The new 661 seems to have a smoother powerband in the cut. The 661 also oils better. I'm upgrading my 660 to a high output oiler. I really like the M-Tronics but was sorely disappointed that it was switched to the flippy caps instead of screw caps. Captive bar nuts are neat but I never lost one and always carry a couple spares just in case. All saws and other Stihl equipment kept running well with fresh ethonol free fuel and Stihl Ultra oil and sharp chain. Always excellent service from independent Stihl dealer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw with great power I upgraded from a excellent running 046 magnum with a 25 inch bar. Didn't really need a larger saw, but wanted to try a new m-tonic. I traded up to a new 661 with a 28" lightweight bar and WOW!! I was really impressed. Tons of power and not a bit disappointed despite of being apprehensive of trading a great running saw for a newer and bigger one. Will cut thru any type tree with ease. I couldn't expect anything less from my dealer, Martin's small engine repair, they are the best! Own 6 chainsaws and a weedeater. STIHL. the name says it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw - Would buy again! I don't normally do reviews, but I really like this saw. I have a 362cm as well. I rarely use the 362 after getting this saw. Tons of power and cuts the oak around me like butter. Great saw for sure. I would buy another no doubt. Always impressed when I use this saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite saw This saw is incredible. I have not found a tree that will stop it! I bought after running 2 different friends 660s, which are nice units, but sometimes hard starting. This saw starts right up, and goes to work. I have a 362, but find myself using the 661C more. I can put up a lot of firewood, a whole lot faster now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth power I upgraded from a 66 Magnum. This saw starts easier and runs smoother. It has good power. The new fuel/ oil caps are nice as well as other convenient features. The shut off, the cover nuts being retained and the M tronic fuel system. I would recommend this saw for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best choice Upgraded from a ms660 mag and immediately the results were noticeable. The ms661 never loads has more low end torque along with overall more power a refined power band....its quieter and uses less fuel....along with easy starts in any temperature . It has less vibration and easier to use. Thanks again Stihl

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw why is the 660 rated for up to a36 inch bar and you only rate the 661 to a32 inch bar which has more power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The m-tronic carb raised the bar for chain saws no more tuning carb when cutting in below zero temps. can idle forever & not load up .
