    Fantastic saw!!!
    I had a stihl ms 026 but it had some age on it and was hard to start so i wanted to upgrade to an equivalent saw so i bought the MS 261 with 18 inch bar. Phenomenal saw!! has great power for what i cut. Starts easy. Runs smooth. Great features like: captive bar nuts (cant lose them) antivibration, fuel economy, heavy duty air filter, black line across the shroud to see your cutting line. Yes it was kinda pricy but its a stihl and that means there durable, long lasting, inexpensive parts,and easing to work on

    Great power to weight!
    I have been using this saw to clear land. I bought this saw to replace my 025 which is a very good saw also, just time for a new saw.The power to weight is great 10.8 pounds and 4 horsepower you can use this saw all day and have the power to cut through anything.The saw usually starts on the second pull and it will cut longer on a tank of gas.This is a great saw!

    Made replacing a stolen beauty easier to swallow
    I picked one up last summer after my 028 was stolen. Since then, the saw has done everything I've asked of it. I loved the 028, but find it hard to miss it at the end of a day cutting with the 261. The 16" bar is the best choice for balance, but I have tried a 20" bar in black oak and red maple with no problems. Mix goes a long way, starts in 3 pulls without fail, and leaves plenty of gas in my tank at the end of the day. Safe to say I approve of this saw.

    Awesome Saw Better With Wrap Bar
    I still use my 660 but not as much as the 661. It has a stong powerband in the wood. The M-Tronic and great antivibe are big improvements over the legendary 660. The wrap handlebar makes it more versatile felling. Big, smooth power.

    mini mill monster
    This saw is great for a lot of applications. I have been milling with it and I am very happy with its power. It glides through soft and hard wood and bucks logs like a light sabre. Happy to have it with my smaller stihl saws.

    Excellence personified
    I stepped up to the MS 661 RCM with a 36" bar from a Husky 455 Rancher and won't go back; I'm a Stihl convert! Tremendous power, runs like a champ, I love the wrap handle. You get what you pay for and it's worth every penny, what a saw!

    Excellent power and balance
    Bought this saw to replace an aging 55cc saw from another manufacturer, and wow, what a difference. Ease of starting was the first bonus of the new saw, it is easy to start cold and easy to restart when warm/hot. The power is amazing and the saw is well balanced.

    Very comfortable saw
    Great saw. Has all the power that one could ask for. Starts easy and comfortable to use for extended amounts of time. Only 1 complaint I was using it on a hot humid day and I turned it off for a couple minutes when I went back to start it up it did not want to start. So I let it sit in the shade for a while then went back and it started right up. It only happened once so I am not too concerned about it. Great Great chainsaw. Would recommend it to anyone.

    A really good saw.
    This is definitely a great saw. It starts easy every time. It has some weight to it but nothing inconvenient or uncomfortable. You can tell from the feel it's a pro saw. As great as this saw is I can't help but think at times it's a little under powered. I'm cutting red oak and most of the time it cuts like a hot knife through butter, but out will bog down if you get a little to aggressive with it. It's a fine line between out running like a beast and and wanting to fall on it's face. And yes ... read more that's with a freshly sharpened chain. All in all I wouldn't hesitate to buy this saw again or recommend out to someone else.

    Perfect saw!
    Pretty much the ideal saw from its light weight, well laid out power head and uber ergonomic rap around handle and silky smooth anti vibration functioning to it's hard hitting no holds barred wood ripping power band that slices through rounds like a hot knife through butter. It amazes me every time! To say that I like this saw would be an understatement. Would I recomend it? Hmm... Let's see... Only if you want the best mid sized saw money can buy. Heh. Yeah I'd recommend it.

    Commercial quality and speed
    This is one bad boy saw! Cuts like butter through 20" trees in a quick pass, I average 5 second cuts through 18-20" rounds! I own a landscaping business and we regularly remove trees and we also cut and sell wood, this is the best saw I have ever owned. I would highly recommend that, if it is within your budget, don't buy less, buy the best! Go with stihl! Always perform regular maintenance, use synthetic oil blend for your fuel, and never let the chain oil go out, and this will outlast the ... read more competitors saws :) stihl all the way! I regularly use and purchase their hedge trimmers, weed wackers, brush cutters, blowers, saws, and have yet to be disappointed! I definitely recommend the MS362-r for someone who needs a reliable, powerful, frequently used saw, and no, I did not get paid to right this review or even asked to. I am simply an extremely satisfied customer - Luke

    Great saw for the right tasks!
    When you're looking at all the saws Stihl offers, be very sure you're getting the right one for you. Go talk to your dealer and see what they recommend. I personally use the 362 for a variety of projects. I'm a resource conservation and fire sciences student at the University of Montana which means the saw it seeing a ton of varied use. Ranging from thinning projects, active fire use, bucking blocks for our timbersports team and even using the saw for competitions occasionally. This is a great ... read more mid size saw, I regularly use larger Stihl saws on thinning projects and at work but I come back to this saw regularly and always bring it with me!

    Great light weight saw!
    Have been “home” cutting for years. Both for firewood for heat and keeping the property neat. Have a PM610 that I bought new. It still cuts great, but needed something lighter, that was reliable and powerful. The MS 241 met those requirements. The self-oiling chain and compression release are nice features. The electronic controlled carb is great with me living over 7000 ft above sea level. It is easy to start, cuts great and at 10 lbs is easy on my back. I look forward to enjoying the Stihl ... read more reputation with this saw.

    Power to weight ratio nuff said
    Was looking for a light pro saw for limbing and cutting brush. Have a ms 362 and though I love it, it is better for bucking the main trunk. I wanted something nimble to dismantle the canopy on th ground. Was looking at the ms 201 rear handle. At a 150 dollars cheaper, a pound heavier, and a lot more horsepower the ms 241 won my choice. The mtronic is nice and starting is a breeze.

    amazing little saw!
    this is an amazing little saw, iv cutt side by side with other professionals w/ bigger saws and this little thing will keep up with bigger saws. 'AKA' the little ripper. great fuel economy, its light, and this one come with floating gear set up instead of normal star sprocket. also much better because of this..from heavy to minor yard or household use to pretty hardcore field cutting, this saw can do the job well
