    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 113.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Lightweight, very powerful. For the size and weight, you are getting a very powerful chainsaw. I have cut pine, palm, live oak, scrub oak and thin brush. This saw with a 16" bar holds up well to any tree with 16" diameter or less. However, this saw is more designed for limbing and does a superior job of it. I do not get tired carrying this around all day.This was my first Stihl and has completely convinced me to exclusively buy Stihl. Starts with only a few pulls. I have never had an issue getting this saw started. The only issue this saw struggled with was a 24" palm. Honestly, most saws would struggle with this wet, fibrous wood. We use it at the house and East Texas acreage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chainsaw The chainsaw runs great and has plenty of power. I cut down two trees last weekend as well as numerous smaller trees. Because of the overgrown brush, I would cut one tree and have to stop and remove the brush, limbs, etc. The best part about this chainsaw is that it cranks back up everytime with one pull, regardless of how long it sat while I moved brush and limbs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't get 3 hours of use I bought the ms180 in August 2017. I ran it for approximately 1 hour the weekend I bought it and was satisfied. I used it a couple other times just a few minutes each time. I used it lastly in February 2018. It started great ran great up until it coughed and stalled. It would not refire after that. I will be taking it in for service under warranty. I guess I had hire expectations from what others claimed of your products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Live on 4 acres and plan on buying more acreage up north. Needed a really good chainsaw, and after looking around for awhile, settled on a STIHL. Glad i did... outstanding chainsaw. Couldn’t be happier!!! I can see this chainsaw sticking around a long time, all the while handling my abuse. Thank you STIHL for a quality “ MADE IN USA “ product.
