I picked up the Stihl MS 180 from a small shop called Straub’s near Haubstadt, Indiana for a little less than $200.00. I had never used a Stihl and bought it based upon the recommendation of my coworker who has a penchant for discriminating taste in tools. I bought it for small chores of cleanup and light firewood cutting. The chainsaw is lightweight, powerful, and comfortable to use. It does bog down when sawing anything larger than 12” diameter logs, but the bar is only 14”...

Hello, calling from Bolivia, I am reading the chainsaw reviews and for us working in the forest cutting down hardwood trees (ipe, massaranduba; I a mean the hardest of the hardest) there is one chainsaw suitable only which is Stihl 660. There is also Husqvarna but for some reason quality is less then Stihl. We buy each and every year at $980 here in Bolivia a Stihl 660 and its capacity is around 2000 trees per year, (average diameter of 20”), including cutting of the branches and lengthening ...
