A powerful efficient, reliable well made chainsaw
I've had a number of non- premium chainsaws in the past and this Sthill chainsaw is a world of difference! It's easy to start when cold or warm. The engine is powerful and very responsive. The amount of bar lube this saw uses is much less than my previous saws due to Sthill patented technology. My only wish is that it had 'captive' nuts on the sprocket case like the MS261 which is the model up as I lost a nut which worked loose during use (get a couple of spare nuts when you buy the saw). Talking of the 'professional' MS261 which is model above...the differences between the models are the captive nuts, a magnesium case rather than tough plastic, about 0.3 more HP and a decompression valve which is unnecessary on s 50hp saw. For $500 saving over the MS261 the MS271 is awesome value!
