    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.

MS 211 C-BE is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 126.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, light saw! I’ve been cutting firewood most of my life, was a logger for a summer and have always run a Stihl. I’ve spent most of those years cutting with an ms310 and an 084. The Ms211cbe was my first brand new saw purchase and I chose it for the price point/features size & power to weight ratio. This saw has been a pleasure to cut with and perfect for firewood chores. After running larger saws for years, I was not disappointed in choosing a smaller, lighter saw. Mine came with an 18” bar and I have no complaints whatsoever and would purchase again and recommend to anyone needing a saw exclusively for firewood. The no tools chain adjust and easy start feature make this saw a dream to start and run. 110% satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets all my expectations. This my 1st day of good use, mind you, but this saw "almost cranks itself. Light weight, cut through a 6" log as it were butter.All the people were correct when they told me this was the best buy for the $$$. The cranking design is genius. Honestly, all I had to do was pull the cord a quarter of the way out and the compression spring did the rest of the work. It's light weight. Very good investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependble, user friendly I bought the 18" MS 211 to replace an aging MS 230, 16" unit. I liked the 230 and was used to the easy access gas, oil, easy start, and especially chain tensioner feature of the 230, which the 211 has. One improvement to the 211 is the easier tab to switch the summer/winter carb heat deflector using a finger switch. On the older 230, it was a few more steps to do this seasonal requirement. So far for routine homeowner duties like small dead trees, fallen limbs, limbing, high wind cleanup, it is a great choice based on modest weight and reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power and just big enough to do what i need. I have had a few different saws but even the other stihl saws I've had felt underpowered. That is not a problem with this saw though. The easy start makes it much better for my shoulders also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MS 211-C 16" bar I've put this saw through the ringer for three years maintaining a pecan orchard. Just finished cutting up tree that Hurricane Irma brought down, and trunk was about 2-1/2 to 3 feet in diameter and had fallen over a fence. Handled it with ease, although I had to cut on both sides to complete the cut. Never had a problem starting it, and I remember back to the days when my dad would pull and pull on lesser brands to get them running. By the time you did, you were bushed. I do choose to pay more for the premixed fuel mixture. Was skeptical about the way you tighten the chain and the kinetic starting capability but thought I'd go high tech. Glad I did.Only problem I've had is the cap for the oil reservoir can be tricky to get back on. Fuel one is not a problem, snaps right on every time.Workhorse of a saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from workhorse Not sure how many hours I've got on it, but a lot. Ideal for limbing, cutting smaller firewood. Easy start, easy to tighten chain. Light weight makes it easy to cut sideways or overhead, work your way into tangles. Did wear out an oil line, not expensive to get fixed. Low vibration, i find controls easy to use and it all fits my hand (XL glove size).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does everything I ask it to do. Great chain saw for a home owner like me. I have used my saw to cut down and process more than twenty small and medium sized trees so far with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, light and easy to use This saw is great for home use. Light and easy to use, it handles the light stuff with ease and is durable for the big jobs as well. Love the easy to open and close fuel / oil caps along with the tool-less chain tightner. Looking forward to using this saw for many years to come.
