I bought my Stihl chainsaw model ms 170 about 4 years ago and the only problem i have had with it is the chain lube pipe popped out of its hole and i fixed that this morning. I have cut a wide range of wood with it from pallets, scrap wood to trees and for its size i have found it a little thirsty but not a problem, i have cut down a few trees with it ranging from 3" to 18" all with ease, i can admit starting the thing when i first bought it was a problem but with all stihl products they are a bit stroppy at starting, like trying to get a teenager to clean their room but i found try starting on full choke until it tries to start then click to run with no choke and it should start with a few pulls and remember its a 2 stroke so you have to put in a bit of work.
