    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.
  • 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.

MS 180 C-BE is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 468.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Saw, but easily flooded Saw has good balance and power, handle and throttle feel a bit flimsy to have the Stihl name, but good enough. Only complaint thus far is that the engine is easily flooded on startup, and you can call it a day if you do flood it. If you choose to use it in warm weather, try to start it on half choke first rather than full choke.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won’t start when it gets hot The most frustrating saw to operate. It starts and runs beautifully when the engine is cold, or before its ran for a while. Once it gets hot, if you need to put gas in it you better leave it running because after 2 hrs of use the thing does not start when hot. If you’re stacking or splitting wood as you go let it sit in the shade because if it’s left in the sun it will not start. I’ve taken it to the dealership twice, and of course it runs fine there because it’s cooled off. I thought it was the gas cap, but apparently that’s fine... sometimes it seems like if it’s too full of gas it might be the problem, or if the gas cap is on tight it also might be the issue. I can’t tell, but if you let it sit in the sun for an hour it will not start. It will make you wanna scream. If it keeps giving me trouble I’m going to sell it and get another brand. I’m so annoyed with it.Very frustrating. I bought it in March 2018 and it’s given me fits since I brought it home

Rated 2 out of 5 by from MS 180 C - A Most Unreliable Chainsaw Bought MS180C new several weeks ago and it has been most unreliable. Once you get it to start it works fine. Getting it started is the problem - it is anything but easy2start !- OK, a fresh gallon of gas with one of the Stihl 6-pack containers of oil added- On my third NEW sparkplug needed to get it to start- Each of the first two sparkplugs totally blackend and engine will not start- Had to replace the starter cord after HUNDREDS of pulls trying to start engineMy old Stihl 036 saw works wonderfully and is a dream starter. I would like to return the saw to the store and buy a more reliably easy starting saw. The aggravation and bad-words this saw has caused me are almost beyond description

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid chain saw. Best I've ever owned. Very dependable, powerful chain saw. Top quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chainsaw. Power to weight ratio is excellent. Even though this is a homeowner saw I still use it commercially because the power to weight ratio is wonderful. I love the easy start feature. I can climb a tree with this saw and start with one hand. This chainsaw runs great. At home I live on a very large acreage and the chainsaw does get abused. I treat it pretty rough it rides on the tractor and has fallen off. Another reviewer said they thought it was too delicate. The saw is not delicate. It performs every task I throw at it. I love this chainsaw. I would even consider buying another one and putting the 12 in bar on it for climbing trees. The one I currently have has a 16 inch bar and the power is just fine with the 16 inch bar. This chainsaw is light enough that even an older person can run it all day. Dependable and wonderful.
