STIHL Wood Boss MS 251
Some users online have said about this chainsawI have been using this saw now since July of 2020, we bought 25 acres and I have cut 40+ trees already clearing our build spot. I run 91 octane ethanol fuel with steel oil and this saw starts every time within 3 pulls. Grew up on my dad using cheap poulan saws and we were always fighting to start those things. This saw has exceeded my expectations. I kinda wish I went with the farm boss for the larger bar but overall very happy. Has all the power any basic homeowner would need, a little more power on the big hardwoods like oak and hickory would be nice. But as long as your not wrenching on the felling spikes and just let the chainsaw cut it does just fine. I love this saw from this point forward I will never use another brand.
I bought two Stihl saws (170 and 251) 6 months ago. I thought I need both but only ran the 170 up until November. I then finally used my 251. It is a powerful saw and very handy when you need to cut wood fast(felling small trees). I was tired of wasting money and time on the cheap saws and finally got something that’s reliable and I can be proud of .
