    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.

    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…

MS 362 C-M is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 175.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works grear Had a 391 sold it bought this for a little better built saw with the mtronic. Never looked back didn't have buyers remorse go get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my first Stihl product Chainsaw cut really well when the chain was new. Had plenty of power. Restarting after use was sometimes difficult. Figured out how to get it started. You have to hold the throttle fully open while pulling. Do this a few times and it should start. Recommended, turn the chain automatic oiler to maximize oil flow. Better to have more oil than a dry chain. Good fuel efficientsy. When you fill gas fill the oil reservoir at the same time, minimizing down time. I am really impressed with this model and would highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hot Starting Problem My MS362 C-M will not re-start after getting it hot until it has time to cool down. I suspect it is a heat soak problem after the saw is turned off and the temperature inside the case initially rises, signaling the electronics through its temperature sensors not to permit re-starting. After the saw has time to cool down it will re-start and run beautifully until I turn it off and the problem repeats. Frustrating. But when the saw is running, it cuts beautifully. My typical operating conditions are above 8500 feet of elevation, temperature in the high 80's to low 90's, with very low humidity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw I have ever run This is a no nonsense saw. Do not buy this if you want to save a nickle and sacrafice performance. There are plenty of cheaper brands out there. They may even work decent "enough" for a time before breaking. I buy Stihl saws because they can run hard and dependable day in and day out with minimal upkeep. One such saw I have is nearly 15 years old. Oh, and it was a ranch saw which does not even come close to the performance of this pro saw even though they have the same displacement. For a serious operator it will perform beyond your expectations. It is truly the best saw I have ever run. Light weight and does everything my ms660 can.If you need a serious piece of equipment and are willing to spend a litle more money than at some big box store to get a way better saw then this may be the saw for you. Big enough to fell, light enough to buck. Does not seem to vibrate at all. I tried another brand priced 33% less and actually had my hands go numb; that saw also had more displacement than the 362 c yet it was still way slower. I sold it. Oh, and the 362 starts very easy. It is like pulling the cord on a weed wacker, very little effort.Stihl needs to add an expertise category, I am a licensed arborist not a landscaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw runs/cuts great Great mid power range chainsaw. Light for its size and plenty of power. Real fun to work with. Only downside is cost.
Date published: 2017-07-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw has great power. I was going to buy the Stihl MS391 for it's power but the saw was to heavy and I decided to spent the extra money on the MS362 and I'am glad I did this saw has fantastic power and the weight is very light for the amount of power.I don't think there is a better Chain Saw out there that can even come close to this MS362,.buy it you will not be sorry.If you purchase a case of motomix Stihl 4 quarts minimum Stihl will double the warranty from 1 year parts and labor to 2 years parts and labor but you have to purchase that with the saw at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent saw I've been using chainsaws since the 1960s and now at almost 70 years of age I needed adequate power with less weight. My 362C fits nicely. It"s efficient and fast cutting. Actually, it cuts faster than some of my heavier saws from years gone by. It starts easily and dependably, and is the safest saw I've ever had. With a 20 inch bar it's well balanced and will quickly process everything I need. I've had bad luck with off brand bar and chain oil, so I recommend using Stihl oil. If your saw will stay in the case for weeks or months at a time, use the pre mixed fuel; it's much more dependable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth every penny Have only run 4 tanks of gas through it, but am very impressed with this saw. I had a farm boss 291 and was looking to upgrade to a little bigger saw. Cut 15-20 cords a year and this saw will make it much quicker.
