    Pre-Separation Air Filtration System
    This time-saving technology boosts the efficiency of the engine’s filter system, doubling the time between air filter cleanings. Air drawn into the engine is first separated via centrifugal force, ejecting the heavier dirt particles before being routed to the air filter. This pre-separation means less dirt to be captured by the air filter, resulting in less frequent cleaning and maintenance.

    Side-Access Chain Tensioner
    The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.

    Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers
    Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There‘s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.
  • Zoom
    Decompression Valve
    The decompression valve, also referred to as 'deco' or 'deco valve', vents compression in the cylinder for easier starting. The decompression valve temporarily reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope. It is opened manually and closes automatically as soon as the engine fires.

Important Information
WARNING! The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.

STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chainsaws.
* The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on.
Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% Ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% Ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a BEAST! This is by far the best saw I've ever owned! This thing eats whatever you put in front of it! It definitely makes cutting up trees a breeze, has an insane amount of power and is by far the most reliable saw I've owned. Well worth the $$$. Don't second guess or wonder. Buy this saw. You'll thank yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for medium sized hardwoods, decently priced with lots of features I am a landowner that cuts 3 to 6 trees a year. There was a 90' red oak, 30" at the base that was in the wrong place. In my assessment this was out of league for my aging MS 290. So I took the convenient 10 minute drive to the nearest Stihl equipment dealer and purchased the MS 362 C-M. Using an aggressive chain and 25" bar, the mighty red oak was crashing to the ground in minutes. I was able to cut up 50 percent of the tree into firewood on the complimentary tank of gas. It was impressively fuel efficient for the power/size. Also light with good ergonomics. As for the Mtronic feature, only time will tell since this is my first experience with it. The MS 290 is now relegated to limbing duty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage I purchase this chainsaw about a year ago. Used it maybe for 30 mins. Then we had several tornados land in our area. I had four trees fall in my yard. I fired up the chainsaw and within 10 mins the throttle linkage came loose or broke. I really don’t know because the dealer can’t fix tit. It’s been 5 weeks and I still have no chainsaw. I purchased an 18 (smaller one) to clean up the branches but find it overrated as well with reliability. I have nowhere to take this chainsaw to get it fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power to saw weight ratio.....absolutely perfect chainsaw I have many Stihl products from backpack blowers, trimmers, weed eaters, and chainsaws. I own both the MS 362C Professional Chainsaw, and MS 201C Professional Pruning Saw. Both are excellent in ever respect. The MS362C is especially noteworthy in terms of the fact that it's a lightweight saw in my eyes when compared to the MS661 and MS461, yet provides the high horsepower and bar lengths needed for much larger jobs than the pruning saw MS 201C can handle. And....although not quite as powerful as the MS661C and MS461, it still has very good power and can handle moderately big jobs. It's weight and size are perfect in my mind when not cutting the largest of trees. I can switch from the 201 pruning saw to the 362 with no big issues from a weight standpoint. Many people just mention saw weight when discussing these type tools, and I find the 362's power to weight ratio to be exceptional....this saw can cut, and will not lug you down due to excessive weight. I rate both the MS362C and MS201C as the best available for my needs, anywhere from any manufacturer. Simply an excellent chainsaw in ever respect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl 362 cm I first bought a 261 Stihl but I was not happy with the power, Stihl representative was outstanding to deal with and got me into a 362. I am extremely happy with my choice. Well worth the extra money. The saw is an absolute Beast with a 20 inch bar. The Stihl rep also gave me direction on the best chain for my use. Great information.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from GOOD SAW MOST OF THE TIME SAW IS VERY HARD TO START WHEN COLD. IF YOU RUN OUT OF GAS ITS A BEAR TO START.
Date published: 2018-04-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good all around midsized saw. This review comes from a retired logger/pulp wood yard manager. Good all around mid-sized saw. Fuel economy is excellent. Enough power to run well with 20 inch bar & yellow full chisel chain. Oiler is very stingy though, even when turned up all the way (As compared to less modern saws). If you really need to run a 25 inch bar & chain on a regular basis, Then a MS 460 series is a better choice, It has more lubrication and enough low end torque to really turn a longer bar and chain.
