How To Start Your Chainsaw

What do you think about this video?

Adam Vetus: I havent got fuel primer in my MS 211 so i cant pump fuel. Explain pls starting proces in this model ūüėÜ

Sarah Lewis: PLease shorten this video to just the bare basics. Just needed the actual how to start info.

John Skans: Thanks much; first time user and your visual still valuable 2017. Stihl MS 180 C-BE started right up after watching.

raj kumar: HI

ryan fowler: Wat do I do when Chainsaw chain runs and stops.. Even thou I clean'd it????

astathesmalldog: This is my first Sthl. My biggest problem is the carb is side draft and the pictograms show a vertical choke. Eventually I will get it through my head to start with the switch on the bottom. The run position next to the stop keeps faking me out.
I understand the legal need to start with all the safety info, but I really needed a 30 second video, just like most computer printers come with a cheat sheet as well as full instructions.
Love my new saw, so much better than the old one.

Harry Reams: What could the idiots who make these dopey, absurdly over-long "instructional" videos possibly think that stupid background music contributes?

This is one of the worst, most condescending pieces of crap I've ever seen. Cut the chit-chat bullcrap and get to the goddamned subject, idiots.

Sidney Mathious: I have a Stihl chainsaw and is having problems starting it and I think that it may be because I keep flooding it. While working with my Poulan saw it starts normally for me, but it don't have the features of the Stihl. I will try the procedure you all mentioned here and if that don't work the saw will be taken back to the saw shop to see if they can start it.

Crisp Cuts Landscaping: Great tutorial! The time could be condensed, but I understand there are lawyers.

Zaine Ridling: Lots of wasted time in this video, which could have been cut to 2 minutes. Consider editing, and stop saying each other's names so much; we really don't care.

rougen512: Is it safe to allow the saw to warm up in the half choke position? Say...30 seconds? It has been dying on me immediately after I blip the throttle in half choke position to turn high idle off and move into the run position. Mine seems to smoke quite a bit if I let it high idle for even 10 seconds. MS271, brand new

Bean Dar: STIHL a great video...

Tommy Truth: At least yours starts.   I have a MS180 used 8 or 10 times that will not start.    I am through with Stihl.

Anthony L: cool

Protap Biswas: Please Visit

nick freeman: good tutorial guys

James Purswell: This saved my day. I got my first chainsaw and had no clue how to start it. I fumbled with it for an hour, nothing. Found the video, Bam! Thanks !!!

btownmxer: This one time at band camp I stuck a chainsaw in my

Matthew Stein: I am in the firewood business and I bought a brand new MS 391, 25 inch bar back in 2/20/2015 never tried to start it till today, 6/14/2015, and I cannot get it to start, burp, cough, nothing at all. It doesn't pop at all.  I have owned several chainsaws of 4 different brands over the years and all of them never failed me. This damn thing has pissed me off. $ 675.00 worth of disappointment. It's going to a service center tomorrow. This is the first and maybe the last Stihl product I may ever own. Very disappointed.

bmedeiros678: Kc didn't have his head gear at 5:44 so I guess that is not needed while starting.
