I went to Stihl as to people saying it was the best saw out there. Think this was coming from people who do not cut wood to heat their homes and work to make ends meet. I went to commercial grade ms270 to get better than what I was told and assist an 18" bar, very un happy with the saw. When serviced, at most able to cut 3 more cord averaging $130.00 a repair. I have spent way too much on this saw - problems- recoil going many times, brake - 2 new ones, piston seized by bolt coming loose, and on 3rd rubber gasket from carb to the head. No relief for repairs as I took it in each time to a service center to have them done. I would not suggest investing into the name.
