    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.
  • Zoom
    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.
  • Zoom
    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.

Are You Ready for a STIHL?

MS 180 C-BE is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 447.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inexpensive construction equals too much down time AS ALWAYS, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I HAVE OWNED SEVERAL LARGER STIHL SAWS AND BEEN TOTALLY SATISFIED. I WANTED A LIGHTER MODEL FOR LIMBING AND TRIMMING, BUT THE PLASTIC PARTS AND ESPECIALLY THE LIGHT-GAUGE STEEL IN THE CHAIN HAVE BEEN A REAL HASSEL. IF YOU USE THE SAW IN AN AWKWARD POSITION OR IT GETS PINCHED AND THE CHAIN COMES OFF THE BAR WHILE THE SAW IS RUNNING, YOU WILL BE BUYING A NEW CHAIN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw This is a great little chainsaw. It handles everything I have thrown at it on my 1 acre property. The quick chain feature is nice, but not required. Also, the easy start works flawlessly as long as you know what your doing. I have never had a flooding problem because this saw required very little choke, especially here in the south in the middle of summer. I would definitely recommend this saw!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy this saw After reading more recent reviews I’m not surprised with my experience. Second day of owning i couldn’t start it up. After pulling for awhile I, as many other have, broke the pull cord and brought it right back and the guys I bought it from had it for over a week and told me not until I went for a refund that “The spring broke and it was sent back”. Being a chainsaw that has many springs, especially with the so called easy start feature, I’m glad I got my refund and got a comparable priced Swedish saw that’s much better quality. I’d reccomend anybody needing a reliable brush saw do the same. Reliability doesnt seem to be a quality of this saw from my experience

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'll let you rate it. Bought my saw about a month ago and i still haven't seen it run. Read my instructions to make sure I was starting it correctly I pulled and pulled and pulled some more.never acted like it wanted to start.So I take it in service dept they say it flooded I asked what I did wrong? He said they just do that it needs a new plug I'm thinking ok so I have to put a plug in it every time I use it? He puts a plug in still won't start and he breaks the rope...so now it's worse than when I took it in. New saw in the shop still haven't seen it run so it's hard to review.really let down by a product I respected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy If you can get done what you need with one tank of gas the saw is good. It is impossible to start the saw when warm. Stihl products have gone down hill in quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great saw! I have had this saw around 4 years now and it still works great! It has lots of power for a saw this size. Cuts through dead hedge like nothing with a sharp chain. I liked it so much I bought my dad one for Father's Day that same year!
