    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.

    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 407.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous chainsaw!!! I purchased my second STIHL in the past 20 years. It is extremely easy to operate (I remember the pull system on my older one) but this 180c C-BE is easy enough for my wife to start, regulate the chain tension, and cut anything we have on our place. I would never buy any chainsaw other than a STIHL. It starts so easy, cuts so smoothly, and is less weight than those of 20 years ago. Never had a problem with my older one until it was so old that parts were no longer manufactured. I look forward to another 20 years with this great machine. The kickback has been drastically reduced by the "green" category built in the blade and chains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use This is my first Stihl chainsaw I have had two other brands that can not compare to this saw. I used it today for the first time to clear some storm damage and had no issues. The saw was easy to start and very comfortable to handle, never felt any fatigue !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest Chain Saw I ever used. The extra features are well worth the few dollars more. love the Easy Start and the no tools chain adjustment. Even though the shop demonstrated how easy it was to start, I was doubly amazed the first time I started the chain saw. Haven't used the chain adjustment feature yet but I'm sure I will be impressed. And the fact that the bar oil feed only feeds when the chain is moving during run operation will make this a whole lot cleaner operation when I am running it! Well done, STIHL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts like a dream. Very affordable. There are other brands out there that are bigger for the same money but don’t do it - you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anthony Simpson It's a great saw for the home owner. If your just cutting a little wood for the fire or clearing underbrush or cutting down 18 inch pines it'll do the job in no time. It's the best saw I've ever owned light weight and manuverable.
