    Great light use saw.
    This is a perfect saw for small jobs around the home/farm. Enough power to cut through a lot of the fallen and dying small (~4") to medium (~10") trees on the property I manage without bogging down. Obviously this is not a saw for older trees, but I have used it in a pinch and it's held up fine. The only issues I have seen with these saws is the small plastic flag that locks the choke open can sometimes break if you put a lot of force on the choke lever and the chain dulls fairly quickly (I ... read more don't have the time to sharpen my chain after each use, although it's a practice I should make a habit.). I only found one other thing I dislike which is the 16" bar. For what I and most others use this saw for I think a 14" bar would be better. It's really not a big deal, but I will be purchasing a smaller bar and chain. Overall I have found this saw to be super helpful. It's priced right, doesn't weigh much, starts easily, cuts well, and lasts a long time unless it's abused.

    Incredibly easy to use
    I have owned many chainsaws in the past. Many used and new saws. The last saw I purchased before my first Stihl saw I had only used 3 times and started having issues with it. When I took it to a local saw shop they informed me that the saws were now being produced overseas and it would cost more to fix it than to replace it. Imagine my frustration. I finally broke down and spent a little extra and bought my first Stihl and I must say, this is an actual case of "you get what you pay for." From ... read more the first pull of the easy start feature to the very first cut into a tree, I knew I had made the right decision. This little saw cuts like a dream. I went through 3 trees on my property in a very short amount of time. With my past few saws that would have taken twice the time or longer. I am now a Stihl fan, and will not purchase another brand saw ever again. Thank you for producing such a great product.

    Exactly what I was looking for
    I grew up using the MS170. Bought this saw as I was interested in the Easy2Start and the Quick Chain Adjuster features. Both of these features are great upgrades and worth the extra money. I love the Quick Chain Adjuster as it saves so much time on tightening the chain when it comes loose. Great saw. Have always loved Stihl Products. I also own a 25 year old Stihl Weed Whacker and am about to buy a back pack blower

    A MUST for all loggers
    I have a STIHL Cant hook along with this log stand and what a miracle tool it is! I have used it countless times in the forest and I have lifted some VERY heavy felled trees with it! With the tree lifted, cutting the trunk/branches are a breeze! As I mentioned, this is a MUST own for all loggers and/or farmers that rely on firewood!

    Works well for getting logs off the ground.
    I purchased the log stand with a 60" STIHL cant hook and find it to be very useful in raising logs off the ground far enough to keep your chain from hitting the dirt. An added benefit is that the stand is easily removed for using the cant hook alone. Easy to use and very durable.

    Jack 'er Up... Cut 'er Off !
    This easy-to-install & easy-to-remove option for your Peavey or Cant Hook is an economical tool-enhancer. You can do a lot more with your Peavey or Cant Hook using one of these! There are 4-hex head fasteners (with tool provided & attached to the Log Stand). The Log Stand will assist you in limbing, bucking, decking, dogging-off for skidding, or cutting firewood into lengths. I suggest sliding slightly-larger-diameter "cheater" pipes over the ends of the Stand, on each side, to assist when ... read more using on uneven or infirm ground. (Perpendicular extensions on the Log Stand may work better for you in situations where your Chainsaw Bar may come in close contact with the extensions! These can be fabricated with pipe w/ tees in the center that slip over the ends.)

    PM Chain Upgrade for the MS170 - I’m happy again!
    I purchased an MS170 on the STIHL Dealer Days Sale and gave it a run cutting into some small brush in the yard and burning it. The chain that came on it was the PMM chain and the drive links were getting battered so badly by the sprocket that they would not fit in the bar grove due to deformation of the drive link. This caused the chain to throw off the bar and required it to be filed to width again. This happened a few times and I decided to upgrade the chain and bar. The chain I installed was ... read more a PM 63PM-55 and it’s awesome!! Much better kerf size! Much much stronger!! Much better time between sharpening! Much better all around really.. I don’t burry the bar in wood, for me it’s only for cutting small stuff so it perfect in that role, anything bigger and I reach for the MS661... I highly advise upgrading to a .050 Bar groove and dump that anemic .043 groove PMM chain for the .050 groove bar and the PM or PM3/PS3 chains. Made the world of difference in my equipment, but it’s going to take more of the limited power available to pull it through wood so it will bog down if ya get deep with it, but as mentioned, if ya keep it to the basic small jobs ithe MS170 is designed for, then this chain is the perfect upgrade for the smaller saws!

    This saw is a beast
    I bought the 880 and 59 inch bar to use in a chainsaw Mill, and a 36 inch bar to use for felling. It took me a couple of tries to get the starting procedures down, but has given no trouble since. I've yet to use it in a situation where more than about thirty three inches of bar was engaged, but with that much engaged it doesn't even pretend like it wants to pull down. It is heavy and it sure ain't cheap, but if you want a commercially available saw that is adequate for a bigger mill, this is the one.

    Scary Powerful
    This saw has been a dream of mine. And now I own it! All I can say is the wait was well worth it. This saw is so powerful it's scary. The saw encourages a good challenge this saw will laugh whatever is in front. Just begs for more wood to cut! You will NEVER wanna put this sexy saw down once you start it! I bought this with a 41 on it and never looked back just always so happy I can say and proudly tell people I own the Stihl 880ms

    Better quality than the competitors - Stihl gets it right
    This is a surprisingly good chain saw. I just did not want to buy a saw that I would use occasionally for small trees and limbs and to have to deal with storing and mixing gas and all of the maintenance and start up required to keep the saw in order. Now, when I want to cut something, grab the saw, cut, and store the saw. The battery system seems very stable, The charger and extended battery work hand in hand to keep the battery ready to go, but not overcharge it. Pull the battery out of the ... read more charger, and pop it in the saw and you are running. If you need to transport the saw and battery without the charger, there is a back-out position of the battery so that it is in the saw's battery sleeve, but not making contact. There are some nice safety features that you would expect from Stihl - like the chain brake - which are very easy to engage/disengage and well thought out. I paid more for this than for competitive products, but like I said, Stihl just seems to get it right.

    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.

    Light, quiet, powerful, awesome saw!
    Have two large Stihl gas saws. The smaller battery saw is perfect for trimming brush to fit into chipper. Use for storm clean up, trail clearing. No need to pack gas, chain oil tank on saw lasts a long time before refilling. Also, saw does not leak any chain oil! Never had any saw that doesn't leak chain oil. Amazing!

    Addicted to This Tool
    I picked this up after seeing guys talk about how useful they could be. I immediately saw the build quality and knew this tool simply wouldn’t fail. I anticipated I’d get a good bit of use with it, but what I couldn’t have predicted is just how indispensable this tool has become. All I can say is if you wonder if you’d get enough use out of it to justify the expense, , ,go ahead and buy it and you will not be disappointed. I use this to load/unload split fire wood, , carry rounds before ... read more splitting, , to help on the log splitter, , and to even move larger pieces around the work site. Don’t know how I got along without it.

    This is a great product
    I've been using my new pickaroon for a couple of days and already love this tool. It's great for pulling logs out of a pile or picking up log pieces that fall off the splitter. Also great for picking up small to medium logs without bending over. I wish I had discovered this tool years ago. I have some concerns about the tip and how long it will last but only time will tell.

    Light and strong
    It does way more than what I bought it for. Most useful tool I have ever had for clearing my land. Wish I had it when I used to sell firewood. Now i have one on the tractor and one in the truck. What a life (and back) saver. I looked at one for over 3 years before I purchased because I thought it was too expensive. It only took minutes of use to tell that twice the price would be cheap. So sorry I did not get it 30 years ago.
