Summary:
An excellent mid-sized saw choice in my honest opinion with very good ergonomics. Well built and a workhorse in the woodpile. I have been tackling 16-24" firs with an 18" bar on and it screams through in fine form. For anything much larger I think I'd opt for the 20" bar though. Important to get the starting proceedure right as choking it for more than a couple of pulls will flood it out and make it a bear to start, pretty much the same as any saw I believe. No choke when warm out or saw is warmed up. I expect to get a lot more use out of this saw and if it lasts half as long as my old 08s I'll be very satisfied.

Strengths:
An excellent mid-sized saw, build is good and feels solid and it has a longish feeling which is nice for larger people. De-comp valve makes for easier starting and its anti-vibe system is very good. Side chain adjustment makes tightening a breeze and I like the fact it still has real bar nuts. Stihl's oiler technology works extremely well too, very little over oiling. The chainbrake system is very good and seems very reliable. Good power to weight ratio.

Weaknesses:
Not a fan of the new caps, would prefer older style screw-in ones. The lower teeth on the dawg are a bit wimpy if cutting anything with thick bark (there are however holes on the outer cover for another set, a good option to consider). Do not like the new tooless chain adjustment system on the C models, give me good old nuts any day. The chainbrake is a tad close for those with big mitts (or thick gloves), I'm sure that can be easily remedied though. It has been mentioned that a few of the ignition modules have been replaced on these saws due to heat causing 'delamination', but it does not appear to be common and I haven't had any problems yet. Not much else I can think of.

Summary:
Great saw, good price. Nice all round saw.

Strengths:
Easy to start. I like the tooless caps. Its just one less time you need to dig into your tool bag. Very well balanced, I can use this saw 2-3 times longer, with out getting tired, than my old one. Power is more than sufficiant for my needs (firewood and small woodlot maint)

Weaknesses:
None so far

Summary:
It is when it is running. But at about $80 per coil I am close to paying for the saw twice. I would have been better off buying a $99 Poulan, etc. I intend to sell as soon as I get it running again.

Strengths:
Mine is the MS270c with no-tool chain adjuster. That is a nice feature.

Weaknesses:
Although I have owned it over 5 years, this saw has not been used a lot. I bought a six-pack of 2 stroke oil when I bought the saw and still have 2 left. In the time the saw has burned 4 gallons of fuel, it has used 4 ignition coils. It is currently not running and has no spark. It appears that it is ready for its fifth coil. My dad bought a Stihl 028WB in 1980--that saw is still running.

Great saw......when it's running.

Strengths:
Easy start. Great running and cutting saw. Just like my 028 that I bought back in the early 80's

Weaknesses:
Didn't run as long as my 028. I have only had it one season and the coil has gone bad. I thought the coils were virtually bullet proof. If coil burn-out is going to be the norm I would not recommend this saw.

Summary:
Maybe I am an isolated incident, but when you pay top dollar only to get this, it is not worth it. I could have bought two Poulons at the Home Depot for the prioe of this one saw.

Strengths:
I general found it to handle well, easy to use, but the weakness outweighed the strengths by far.

Weaknesses:
My big problem with this chainsaw is that the flywheel shattered 5 months out of warranty. When asked why this happened, Stihl blamed me for using the saw with a dull chain that caused harmonic vibrations. Well, I have treated the chain better on this saw that on my prior McCullough and Poulon and nevet had this problem.

Summary:
I put an 18" bar on mine which makes for easier cutting. It's a good saw for trimming but powerful enough for serious firewood cutting. It's less powerful obviously than a MS310, but unlike the MS310 you don't have to 'break it in'. It's pricier than the more common 290 but is quite a bit lighter for just a little less power, and that anti-vibe design is very nice. You can cut all day and be just fine.

Strengths:
Light weight, good power. I had the tool-less chain tensioner which makes for completely tool-less use. On those rare occasions when I throw a chain, I don't have to fish for a wrench. I can just put the saw down on a rock or log right where I am and get the chain back on.

Weaknesses:
I still have a hard time getting used to the 'easy start'. It can be easy to flood, but that's an operator adjustment.

Weaknesses:
Just like any still when put down for any more than 5 min in the winter it has to be re-choked to get to start (never with the husky), slighly under powered with longer bar but with the 16" just right.

Taken down numerous trees. Haven't thrown a chain. Adjustments are easy. I'll probably replace the plug this year. Nice and light for it's size and easy on gas.

Summary:
Overall this saw was a beast. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a mid range saw for cutting up trunks into firewood. The model that I used had an 18" bar.

Strengths:
I borrowed this saw from a co-worker because my saw was too small for a job I was about to undertake. This chainsaw was amazing. It started up right away first time and every time, and it wouldn't stall when left sitting on a pile of wood for minutes at a time. It had plenty of power to cut through 10-16" wet sweetgum and cherry wood, and it almost never showed any signs of breaking a sweat. I absolutely loved the quick blade tension feature, and the tool-less flip caps. I can't fathom how they could get a single bad review. I never once had in the least bit of a problem getting them on or off- unless I was wearing some big sloppy gloves, which made working with any type/style of cap a problem. This saw is the real deal as far as I'm concerned, and I'm looking to buy a Stihl myself now after the great experience.

Weaknesses:
It doesn't make dinner.

Summary:
I'm not sure how some here have broken multiple coils or flywheels, but I've been using this saw for over 7 year and have had no problems. In addition to dropping trees and cutting firewood I have been chainsaw milling with it for 2 years. It is still running strong.

Strengths:
Cuts well. Very Reliable. Easy to start. Incredibly durable.

Weaknesses:
None yet.

Summary:
I would not buy another Stihl. Two in a row is a bad sign.

Strengths:
A smooth cutting saw. I liked the balance and ease of start.

Weaknesses:
This is my 2nd MS270 and unfortunately they both didn't last very long. I fired it up this past weekend and it was smoking badly. The gas mix was correct, but I believe it has a bad piston ring. I've owned this saw for over 5 years and it only gets around 4 hours of use each year when I visit the cabin. I'd say it has less then 25 hours and it's broken. The same happened to my last Stihl. I'm very disappointed.

Summary:
I hear great things about stihls, and the tree service folks all use them, but this one experience turned me off

Strengths:
Seemed to cut well

Weaknesses:
My problem with this saw is that at the 13 month mark, just past the warrantey, the flywheel shattered and the dealer did nothing to help and the company blamed me, a residential user for too tough use. What a rip off
