    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 4.3 out of 5 by 367.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big bite in a small package I really enjoyed my new saw this weekend. It began with its first start up. A slight tug on the cord and it started immediately. We fell a 35’ pine, cut all the branches then cut the tree in 12” sections, then repeated on another 40’ pine. The saw cut like butter, we were done in no time. My old saw I would need breaks due to fatigue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bought 2 only 1 is still working I bought two of these saws in 2015. Both of them were purchased with an extended warranty. BOTH had to go in for repairs in the first year (and they were not used for more than 10 tanks of gas). Only used for small trees (I have a 391 for big work). Very soon after the warranty was spent, one of the saws completely stopped working and the repair shop said it is shot. I used the same gas (non-ethanol) and spend the extra money for stihl oil. There is no way these saws should have needed repairs and stopped working within 2 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This saw was my first chainsaw it was really good for a first chainsaw. The only problem is that it doesn't have enough power to cut firewood. Still it is a good limber and still cuts firewood for my business. Love it never had any other issues with it though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to crank, lightweight and just the right amount of power. I have a Stihl weed eater and blower and could not be happier. I will stick to Stihl products rather than waste my money on "cheaper" products that don't perform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed the easy start--works great with pre-mixed/higher octane fuel Getting old and have health limits so I needed a lighter and smaller saw and one that would start easily. Didn't find the mid-grade ethanol gas in California to run well in this machine and starting was an issue. Once I switched to the pre-mixed fuel it starts right away, every time, even at 4000 feet altitude. Expensive to run the canned pre-mix but it sure pays for itself in ease of use. Power is not great, but I'm probably just reacting to moving to a smaller saw and should not be unfair as I have nothing to compare it with. Very happy with the purchase as I am with every Stihl product I have used. Easy to fill the oil and fuel. I was honestly a little leary of how well the "easy pull" would be, but it is truly a blessing to be able to keep cutting at my age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little saw I bought it for cleaning up around the property. Have ten acre woodlot that needs some attention. Smooth running, easy starting, lighter than the bigger models, but I should have really bought a larger saw for the diameter trees that I have down. But that's my fault and not the chainsaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice features in a lightweight saw As far as lightweight models go this is a good saw.The plusses:Very well made.Easy start works reliablyWell balancedThe minuses:The fuel and oil fillers are a little smallThe blade tension adjustment knob is too small for gloved handsOverall:I'm a fan. I wish I could justify buying another Stihl saw. It's nice to know that there are products that are made great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use good product Ill had this ms180 for about 3 years always started buy 3rd pull cuts though anything i need it to cut i heat my home with wood so i use this saw alot as long as you have a sharp chain bar oil and mixed fuel your set. it will do what ever you want it to do
