    Excellent, lightweight and agile chainsaw.
    A great, lightweight and agile chainsaw that helps prevent fatigue while trimming low branches, limbing felled trees and small trees and to clear large brush (like large lilac bushes). A great second saw to complement a larger saw. This chainsaw will also work great for urban homeowner use. The only con is the price. Despite the saying “you get what you pay for” this chainsaw is a little over priced in my opinion. I highly recommend this saw to anyone who understands the value of this ... read more chainsaw and how to get the best use of this chainsaw that will provide the best return on their money.

    Love the balance of size weight and power
    Love the balance of size weight and power I Chain Saw Carve. I was warned away from the top handle for carving. People said it was to awkward. I love the top handle for carving. It’s great for working in tight corners. I was also surprised at how long I can carve on a single tank of gas & bar oil. I rarely use my rear handle 18” saw anymore. This saw can be a fussy starter when it's warm. 3 to 4 Pulls. Maybe I'm the fussy one. 1 pull would be nice.

    Great Saw
    This saw is very light weight and maneuverable to prune with, but also has the power to cut through larger limbs and smaller trunks without getting bogged down. I use Stihls' oil mix and haven't had any troubles starting this saw for nearly a year of use. I hardly ever use my other chainsaws because it's just so much easier to grab this saw and go knock out a job.

    Extremely useful small saw
    We purchased this saw when 3 trees were downed from storms. It is a compliment to our Stihl Farm Boss saw. The two units work nicely together: The large saw doing the main grunt work, the small doing finer cleanup. The MS 150 has very nice power for its size, is easy to use, reliably starts, very maneuverable. Despite its petite appearance, it's a nifty little worker. It has become our "go-to" saw for quick, small jobs.

    Everything I wanted
    I am only 35 but my back is shot. I have plenty of bigger stihl saws but I was in pain when I was done all of their products are great but this one is so light it seems like a toy but don't be fooled it can cut wood like crazy not just the limb wood either but what ever the bar will cut it will buzz right through I am very impressed and so very happy at the end of the day my back still hurts but I can at least move and now have a warm house too!!!!

    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!
