    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.

MS 180 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chain oiler is a problem Starts easy runs great but the chain oiler is the problem. It plugs up often. I am going to try a lighter oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm .I have read the reviews and I see some bad ones but this is not my experience. It does everything I want and more. Needed a lightweight machine with reasonable horsepower for trimming, firewood and the “occasional” tree to cut down. My personal experience is easy to start, handles like a dream and very reliable. I would recommend this to anyone and if you have a bigger job then get a bigger saw. Love this one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst chainsaw ever made. An absolute piece of junk! The saw is very difficult to start if it starts at all. As for cutting power, it will only cut small tree branches no more than 3 or 4 inches in diameter. When I purchased the saw, there were no operating instructions included. After calling the dealer, I was told to come to the store for an operating lesson. At that time, even the authorized Stihl mechanic had trouble starting the saw. Once home, there was one problem after another in starting and cutting. When the saw would not cut through small logs, the mechanic said I needed to sharpen the blades. How can this be with a brand new saw! Would you like to buy this back or give me a refund? I am totally disappointed in this product and customer service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is most difficult to start . Easier for me to use an axe than this machine. I do not like this product. It has been most difficult to start and keep starting it as I need it during the day. I wish they would get rid of this so called easy start and use the ball plunger and regular choke. I have never had this much difficulty with small equipment and I use an outboard, a lawn mower, a snow blower, and a generator. No more Stihl products for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favorite little saw Homeowner, have a wood stove. I salvage most of my firewood. Already have MS250, purchased the MS180 for lighter cutting, limbing, pruning. Sales associate tried to upsell me to MS150 or MS193, which I would no doubt have been happy with, too. I felt for my purposes this saw represented a better tradeoff between price and features. Have had it about a year. Not enough saw for bucking 12" logs for firewood. Tried that once. The MS180 got pretty hot after about twenty cuts. The MS250 handles that stuff nicely, so that's what I reach for when bucking larger stuff.I spend a lot more time limbing, pruning, salvaging 2" or smaller branches for firewood, etc than I spend bucking 12" or more logs. The lighter weight of the MS180 and the shorter bar which is easier to manage while pruning, make this just about the perfect saw for its price, for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of bells and whistles on this saw. Just bought the saw today. Had some trouble getting it started, even after reading the book. However, when it did. it cut walnut and oak like it was pine. Like the looks and feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The saw everyone should own!!! Like the title says this is the saw everyone should own. If you don't have one then go get one. By far the best saw I have purchased to date. The MS 180 Mini Boss is a lot of saw in a small package. Mine has the easy to adjust chain tensioner roller that can be used wearing gloves. I like not having to have a tool to tighten the chain and this set up makes it a breeze and keeps you moving forward. This saw can handle whatever you throw at it. It's perfect for putting on a four wheeler or Side X Side on the farm and great for clearing trails. We use ours all the time and it always starts and runs like it should. Very reliable!!! This lil saw will make short work of most task. We use it to prun up bigger trees cut trails and when trees are down it has the power to take care of most of that too. We actually put a 16" bar on it and it has plenty of power to spare. Note: we ran it with the stock 14" bar for the better part of 5 years with no issues. We only switched to the 16" bar because we were removing some downed trees and pinched the roller on the end of the 14" bar in the process so we added the 16" bar as an upgrade to this powerhouse of a saw making it even better. But the 14" bar was fine until we broke it that's our fault not Stihl's. Just a great saw that works like you want a saw to work. Nothing bad to say. It's light it works every time and is easy to use. I've had this saw for the better part of about 5 years and not once has it giving me any trouble that wasn't caused by me ( the bar issue). It has set in the shop for months on end in its case and when pulled out to use it starts right up. If I only had to own one Stihl saw this would be the one just because it does everything very well and is easy to use. We own 4 Stihl saws and grab this saw first most of the time. It just works!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible saw Bought it 2 months ago, took it home and saw did not start. Took it back to dealer and after 30 minuts of pulling they start it. I took it home again but still it takes 30 minutes to start. Took it back to dealer and they said they will fix it and call me back. . After 2 months I don’t have saw and money and still waiting for them to call
