    STIHL Easy2Start™ (E)
    The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL products easier. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.

    IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor
    The IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor is designed to automatically adjust the air/fuel ratio when the air filter becomes restricted or partially clogged and maintains the engine’s correct RPM. IntelliCarb™ uses air from the clean side of the air filter to control the diaphragm and flow of fuel. As the air filter becomes dirty and less air is available for the carburetor, the IntelliCarb™ system adjusts the fuel flow to compensate for the decrease in air flow. This is in contrast to typical carburetors that utilize this air from the “dirty” side of the air box.

    Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B)
    The Quick Chain Adjuster (QCA) (B) allows the user to adjust the tension of the chain without the use of tools. This allows for easy chain adjustment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Durable, light, powerful, easy to use I LOVE this saw. I use this saw for major cedar removal on my property. I have cut thousands of cedars with thousands left to cut. This saw is so durable and powerful, easy to start and light weight. With the ease of the start and it being so light weight I can cut up to seven or eight hours a day and I am a 67 years old women. I truly love using this saw it is so easy to use. I could not even begin to cut the cedars if it were not for this wonderful chainsaw. May 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight, great running saw. Bought it for liming, cutting brush and other light work. Easier to handle then my Super 08 (08S) I've had for over 40 years that still runs like new. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw at a great price i dealt with Sue and associates at Arthur's Hardware in Orchard Park N.Y. Their customer service was outstanding to say the least, top notch. They knew the product and at point of purchase, they actually took me to the shop and started the chainsaw and showed me all of the featues !!! WoW, that's customer service. i would recommend this chainsaw to anyone who is looking for a dependable and easy to use chainsaw at a great price. Thank you Stihl for building a great product and thank you Arthur's for going the extra mile with great customer service ! May 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start even for a 64 year old woman. Love the no tool blade tightening. Great saw. We have a farm boss that nether my husband nor I can crank. This saw allows us to pull with ease (follow directions). Great cutting and does not tire you out just holding it. At 64 and 71 we can still clean up fallen trees and limbs on the farm. Now, if we could just find one that stacks the wood! May 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by ms 180 Excellent saw!! Easy to start, and handle. Has lots of power for what is done around the property. You won't find a better chainsaw for the money. PERIOD!!! You will NOT be disappointed. May 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy with my stihl I purchased my first stihl chainsaw From Sowell Tractor supply here in Panama City Fl the sales people were great very knowledgeable and helpful.Like other reviews I read I went to the big box store first and purchased one of does orange saws and right out of the box would not start and I been in logging for many years and used many different saws with no problems so I return that saw and went to my local Stihl dealer the sales person and the Representative of Stihl was there and went over everything about the saw with me.Then we went out side the saw fired right up 2 pulls on the choke and one pull in run and first pull after that.I using the saw now for 5days on my 5 acres cleaning up small stuff to 60 ft tall trees and the saw always starts on 1 to 2 pulls and has enough power for what I am doing. I am now a Dedicated Stihl owner and want to thank my friend TC in NJ for turning me to a Stihl saw April 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw I've had this saw now for a few years and purchased it for camping but have used it for far more than it was ever designed for. Didn't buy this for the purpose of cutting a high volume of firewood buts it's worked out that way. Ended up cutting several cords of firewood last summer as my neighbors were always running out. Some of these firewood logs were Western Larch 24" logs and this little guy buzzed right through them by cutting from all sides. Used it for ATV trail clearing in the rugged mountains of Idaho, it is just plain handy. It starts every time with just a few pulls in 80 degree plus days down to snowy below freezing. I'm over 70 and have cut a mountain of firewood in my life time and this is best little saw I've ever seen. It's the little saw that can... April 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great homeowner saw This saw was my first Stihl product purchase and now I'm hooked! My local Stihl dealer spent quite some time going over each feature with me and helped me pick the right saw for my needs. I decided on this model because of the easy starting and tool less chain tensioner. I've cut a lot of trees down with this saw and haven't had any issues. I definitely recommend this saw to any homeowner looking for a lightweight, dependable chain saw that won't break the bank. April 27, 2015
