    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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expected it to do little better because of nam and price Started off cutting great but when I got into bigger stuff, it Boggs down and seams to heat chain up even though it is full of bar oil.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ms 180 saw Had this saw a year and used it a lot, I use all the stihl oils and i also use ethnol free gas. i also learned no to let it run out of gas because it was hard to start, the 180 has a sight glass to let you see the fuel level. I love my little saw, just wish i would have got a bigger one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little saw Perfect saw for small trees and processing firewood. Does run shy on the power side for larger pieces of wood, but it was not intended for those applications.Great value for the money , highly recommend STIHL products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need as a homeowner for general maintenance and cleanup Bought this saw to clean up limbs and branches after a storm.Works great and gets the job done, much better than my undependable poulan.Starts easy and cuts great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw for the money. This saw is a real workhorse for a compact unit. It will cut anything the length of the bar with no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good saw This is a good saw but I do wish I had got the more powerful saw. Next time I will get the Stihl with more power.
Date published: 2018-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Trimming and Light Work This saw is a step above the 170 ,and for a few dollars, gives you the extra power at the same weight to get the job done. Spend the extra bucks, it is worth it. Just light enough to reach out and trim off a small branch, but has the power to take down a tree with a four to six inch diameter with no hesitation. I've been using it out of a bucket with one hand and find it comfortable and the torque light enough that it does not compromise on safety, it has never given me a kick-back or pull that felt unmanageable. I've been using Stihl products for the past 15 years and will continue. Before I would buy other brands and replace the every year. I've had most of my Stihl equipment for over 10 years.
