    It's more than a back up saw!
    I'm in the firewood business. A couple of months ago I got to thinking what if my saw breaks down. I decided that I needed a backup saw. So I purchased the ms271 Farm Boss. After I got it to the field I tried it out. I could tell immediately that this saw was not going to be second to any saw. I've used it as my primary saw ever since day one. Its got plenty of power. The weight isn't too bad. Starts easy everytime. I would buy another one like it without hesitation. Two thumbs up from the ... read more great state of Texas!

    Powerful Saw!
    Having been around chainsaws a good portion of my life, some good, some not.. I must say the Stihl Farm Boss is the most powerful chainsaw I’ve ever used/owned. Easy to start and operate. It’s a little heavier than an MS170, but the extra weight is due to the bigger engine. I can cut 24” tree limbs like butter. The dealer recommended the 18” bar as the optimal power to bar ratio for this saw and he was right! I now have use the MS 170 for a limber saw and small branches and bring the Farm Boss ... read more when I need to cut drop bigger trees or limbs. Well worth the money!

    Grew up In a logging Family and used a lot of different saws. Purchased this one a few weeks ago after My 20 year old other brand saw just would not start. I have used it for 2 weekends and Fell 9 trees bucked and cut them up and i can say i am very happy With the saw Pros; It is easy to start The weight is Very manageable with the 20 inch bar on it Cuts like a Hot Knife through butter Only had to sharpen chain once so far Cons It was a bit Expensive for home use but the value is there for it.

    EXCELENT!!!
    I originally purchased this saw due to spine issues so weight and size were the deal breaker...it has a narrower chain that is great...I think it was designed for 6-8 inch limbs but iV cut LOTS of crismasberry that was over 12 inches..it starts EVERY TIME and is vary fuel efecient....do to my clumsy nature itS taken a few falls and still runs fine...but most importantly; my special lady friend that’s over 65 seems to love it more than me so IM upgrading to a 201t tomarow...it’s a great saw for ... read more its size/weight/way starting..we have ripped lots of wood with it..it fits nice in a small sea line backpack with enough room left over to include my proton helmet (with mesh visor) basic tool kit, bar oil/ fuel bottle..ENJOY;)

    Very nice compact saw, easy starting
    Was very pleased with this saw. It works really well, just let the saw do the work and it will impress you. Very light weight and very user friendly for control. Used it for limbing, cutting up small trees and topping out trees. I also use it as a training saw. Would not want to use as a primary saw for firewood, but general tree pruning and limb clean up work, saw does great!

    Good saw
    Bought the saw for climbing...needless to say every time we have felled a tree one of us grabs it for limbing. A 6-8 inch limb is a piece of cake for this thing it's capable of more, one will have patience to let it cut the larger limbs...very easy to use with very little stress to the operator easy to start beautiful little saw. It's a spendy little saw but after you use it you'll find that it's worth it.

    Lots of power, especially for occasional use
    I don't need a saw for everyday use, but want one that runs when I need it. I use a saw for downed limbs, or taking down dead limbs, not for taking down trees. So far this saw is perfect for that, with lots of power, enough run time for the projects I have tried so far, and the ability to turn it on and off when needed - no idling a gas saw, no restarting a gas saw because it died while I moved something. I wasn't sure a battery powered saw would have the guts needed, but I have not been ... read more disappointed. Start up cost was helped by already having other tools using the charger, but I still think total startup cost for saw, battery and charger is worth it for the performance.

    A real powerhouse
    This battery operated chainsaw is amazing. It easily slices through logs that bogged down my old gas powered saw. I routinely cut 20" logs with this and never lack for power. Run time varies depending upon how hard I work it, but I get at least 45 minutes. Battery charge time is 50 minutes, so with two batteries I can saw all day. After cutting 8 cord of wood, there have been no breakdowns. However, the pico saw chain does dull fairly quickly. The saw is slightly heavier than a similar sized gas ... read more saw, but the balance is good so the extra weight is not noticeable.

    Great tool, needs better chain.
    I bought 6 different Stihl battery powered tools (push mower-RMA 510, chainsaw MSA200c, hedge trimmer HAS 66, line trimmer FSA 90R, pole saw-HTA 85 and blower BGA 85) plus three batteries and one charger, to maintain about an acre of land with grass, bushes and trees. The chainsaw MSA200c has been a good tool. Light weight, well balanced and plenty of power. The downside has been the chain. It's a very light weight chain and loses its edge fairly quickly. It only takes about 8-10 cuts of ... read more 10'-12" diameter size pine tree logs to lose its edge. Each chain is expensive and I now have keep about 5 around to cycle through to have sharpened. The battery last much longer than the chain. Over all a good tool and would recommend it, but needs a better quality chain.

    Need a Double bevel flat file to sharpen this chai
    The profile is not round like a standard chain, its square. Use a double bevel chainsaw file. Look up you tube, there a few men way wiser than me showing impressive cutting rates. Beware dirty wood, as a sharp saw dulls easy.

    Power of a MS290, with weight of a MS250
    Awesome saw!!!! I live on a farm and wanted a dependable saw, this is it! I was looking at purchasing a MS250 or a MS290. This saw is the best of both worlds with a lot of extras. First off this saw has much more power than the previous MS260. What I liked was the HP of a larger saw and the weight of the MS250. The other benefits are well worth it such as, A full Magnesium case, a stainless steel muffler, heavy duty air filter, captive nuts for the side cover (cannot fall out they stay with the ... read more cover), and decompression valve. These are just some of the additions you get with going with a PRO series saw. The price is a lot, but after figuring out the pro to this saw it makes sense to step up to this saw.

    Excellent power to weight ratio. I especially like the canister air filter. Out of all the Stihl saws I have owned and ran this is my favorite.
    This is my go-to saw for nearly everything. Great power to weight ratio and features like the canister air filter and decompression button make this a great saw that is easy to start and run. I put a 3/8" bar, chain and sprocket on my saw and it made a world of difference in performance. This is my favorite saw out of all the saws I have owned and ran. When you now how they are made you'll choose STIHL.

    great value
    This is my fifth stihl saw. I have a 024 super, 029,038magnum. Still have my 024 a 180 for trimming and I just bought a new 261 with the 18 inch bar about a month ago to replace my old 029. I have been cutting wood since I was 11 years old with my dad. And now I average between 17-20 face cord a year. I am now 58 years old and 160lbs so I didn't want a big heavy saw. Can't say enough how much I love this saw. It's light, powerful, and runs great! Also it will cut much more wood than my old 029 ... read more on a single tank of gas. I've cut about 11 face cord so far with the same chain(RS325). Great chain! I run full chisel chain on all my saws except for the 180. Could not be happier!

    A must have for splitting hardwood
    Better than other wedges, does not bounce out, and splits wood with ease. 2in to 3in or less makes a wide gap in the wood. Needs demonstration models at dealerships and very hard to find in south central PA.

    well made and it works
    I bought two of these. They are great..there are barbs that cut down on a wedge popping back out. The twist is the secret I own all kinds of wedges and this is head and shoulders above the rest....I have a hydraulic splitter and electric but some times you need wedges...I use this wedge every time I split...you will love it....
