  • Unlike Annexation, No Children Were Harmed!

    Sep 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, possibly strong enough for a man but made for a woman...
    Cons: There really, honestly aren't any cons to this chainsaw...

    Summary: Having a chainsaw has always been a dream of mine (warped, I know) and last year as a birthday present from my oldest son, my dream came true. Owning a Lawn and Landscaping business and living on a fourty-acre farm, I really don't know how I got along ... read more

  • Stihl C-018 Chainsaw: inexpensive, handy, and recalled. Get the 021 instead.

    Feb 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight, easy to crank
    Cons: Guidebar too short, fuel tank leaks, replacement parts are proprietary.

    Summary: Needing a lightweight gas-powered chainsaw to maintain my own stocks of firewood for several years, I finally received a brand new Stihl C-018 chainsaw for Christmas. The $200 price tag on such a reputable brand name item was the most ... read more

    Pros: the 0-17 is a good tonka toy
    Cons: it can't take the place of the 0-11

    Summary: I have used your saws for about 20 years. I have 2 o-11's and a o -34. I only bought a 0-17 because you people for some reason decided to stop making the 0-11. the 0-11 was the best saw of it's class. I have one 0-11 that is 12 years old and one 5 years ... read more

    Pros: Great saw
    Cons: great when is runs and if it runs

    Summary: The Stihl 017 has only one negative, hard starting. I have owned this saw l8 months. I would use it half the time I spend on my 350 ac. tree farm if I could start it. I will cut trees up to 6 inches easily. It is light weight compared to my two other ... read more

  • Great saw for everything

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: everything
    Cons: none

    Summary: This saw is awsome. I have had mine for about two months now and i think that it is great. It has the elctronic ignition, and fast but also reliable and strong 1.6 HP motor. This thing is great to do any job you have around the house. But since it is ... read more

    Pros: low maintainence, durable, light weight
    Cons: doesn't float

    Summary: We have owned our Stihl chain saw for about 10 years. During that time we have used our saw for many "clean up" projects. We've not "taken it easy" on this product and it has stood the test. We've use our saw mostly on mesquite and ... read more

    Pros: Durable, dependable Stihl quality.
    Cons: Weird to start, but aren't they all? Pricey for the size.

    Summary: The Stihl line of chainsaws is the finest things out there bar none! You get, for a price, a tough dependable saw that will be much lighter than the cheaper competitors. The 017 is the 14" bar designed to go through anything smaller than the bar. ... read more

  • Light enough for a kid to use - but that's a bad idea

    Dec 30, 2003 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Quality features, quality construction, more than enough power
    Cons: There really aren't any

    Summary: This saw may be little and light, but it flat out gets the job done in a hurry. I received this saw as a Christmas present, and after looking at EVERY other brand of chain saw on the market, the Stihls are heads above all others (even Husqvarna if you ... read more

  • Stihl 015AV

    Pros: cuts like crazy
    Cons: no bulb fuel primer

    Summary: I have a similar saw, the 015AV (Anti-Vibration) that is now 24 years old. It is still a good saw and runs great. It is similar to the 017, but without electronic ignition. It's a Stihl, need I say ... read more
