Reviews

MS 251 WOOD BOSS® is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 222.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly dependable and reliable chainsaw! This chainsaw is purely for work, I cut over 9 cords of wood a season, and the only thing I need to do each year is swap out the blade because it gets dull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good saw for the price Used it to take down five good size trees over the weekend. Easy to start and I found the saw very reliable. Maintaining the saw was just as easy as other brands I own. The dealer that I purchased the saw from was great, they filled out and sent in the warrantee paper work on my behave.
