    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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVING MY NEW CHAIN SAW I am a female and although I use one of my husband's smaller chain saws, I love this one as it starts up on the first try and it isn't too heavy that it wears you out. I would definitely recommend this saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy start wasn't so easy! I already have the STIHL blower with easy start and it's great. So, when I needed a chain saw I immediately purchased the MS 180 with easy start. I could not get it started so had to take it back for some remedial training. yes, the dealer started it right up and made sure I knew how. Took it home and the next day tried again. yes, it started but not quite so easy. For some reason the chain saw does not start on the first, second, third or even forth pull. I have to use 1/2 choke to get it started after first trying full choke all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, power, and reliability. Starts every time, just a sweet handling saw for clearing countless cedar trees on my property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money and met expectations Stihl is a brand that I have high expectations of. The 180 C did what I needed and more. I had 3 60+ year-old silver maples taken down (3 ft diameter) and used the 180 C for 3 days straight as I cut everything except for the main trunk pieces bigger than 28 inches. The saw did everything I expected to, even taking down bigger pieces (28" dia with a 16" bar). Would recommend it to anyone. Easy to start and was able to take a beating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I'm not cutting giant redwoods here folks. I got the best chainsaw to take care of larger limbs around the house. It performed perfectly with no snags. One of my favorite features was the ease of starting. I was shocked how easy it was. I was also impressed with the price. I was going to hire a guy to come over to cut my limbs. LOL.. He was going to charge me two times the cost of my new chainsaw! Can't wait for my "Non-Stihl" string trimmer to break dow so that I can buy a Stihl!
