    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.
  • Zoom
    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.

MS 362 C-M is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 206.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 362 Chainsaw The 362 is a great ground saw & light enough to use up in the tree without sacrificing any power !! Awesome saw !
Date published: 2018-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw for firewood. Great all around saw. I run it with a 20” bar and has not disappointed me yet. Little more power over the carb model. Much easier to clean the air filter too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Saw for normal use Do not ever let it fall!! It is a good saw for getting firewood with. I used it to fall a couple trees as well. It has power but not as much as I expected out of a Professional grade saw. Starts great but its still new. Being a Professional grade saw it has metal guards rather than plastic which is a huge + but the fact that the handle is plastic is honestly pathetic. I was going out to cut firewood when it was -10 degrees. Had the chainsaw idling to warm up and it vibrated off of my tail gate and landed in the snow. Being a plastic handle and being so cold the handle snapped into pieces. Ruined the entire day of getting firewood because there was no grab handle for your left hand. If it cant take a fall from under 3' that is just terribly sad, especially for a "Pro grade" saw. My old chainsaw has had multiple trees roll over and land on it, fallen off of the truck multiple times, tumbled down hills etc. Never have I broken an aluminum handle. This saw was less than a week old when this happened. Was the handle cracked before this or had a flaw in the material, I honestly do no know but should never of broken this easy. Good saw for the average user. I wish I could upgrade to an aluminum handle. They do not even offer that as an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Saw is great, lots of power easy start, well balanced, I have a bad shoulder, I needed a bigger Saw because of the size of oak trees I have to take down. I have and always will own a Stihl, but my Farm Boss was a little hard to start. Great Saw, just no comprehension release. This 362 is awesome, 25 inch blade and lots of power ! Bought it at the local Foley hardware store! Travis was a great person to work with..Thank You Tim

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the best saws I have ever run, Great saw,it out cut some of my larger saws,fast,powerful and balanced well,I bought it in Washington State to cut Douglas fir,hemlock and cedar on my tree farm, brought it back to VA and sank into some hardwoods,went through white oak, hickory and maple with ease,I'll be adding a few more for my guys

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing Saw for Sure!! I have put two tanks of gas through this thing and so far it is awesome. The power is well beyond its size and weight. It cuts so smooth and just mows through all types of wood. We cut Oak, Ash, Maple, and some locust and it didn't even start to bog down once. I am amazed at the fuel efficiency. We cut all most everything the amount of a full 14' trailer mounded on a single tank of gas. My understanding from the dealer is it's only going to get better as I use it more. I'm not sure how it could it is an awesome saw out of the box. Stihl this saw is just another great product out of your factory. Great Job!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Stihl saw purchase. I bought this saw to clear my 4 acres in Western Oregon. I have an 028 super but needed something larger with more horse power for the big stuff. I am cutting oak, fir, cedar, and madrone. This saw has plenty of power and tork. It is comfortable to operate for extended periods. The easy start and compression release make this the easiest starting saw I have ever operated. Stihl has incorporated a number of safety features that give the operator some extra piece of mind while operating this saw. The M-tronic system is a great improvement over the carburetor system of the older saws. Welcome to the future of chain saws. This saw makes hard work a lot easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Pro Saw Heat with wood and tired of replacing cheap saws every other year. Love my Husky Farm and Ranch saws but, got hold of a this saw as a demo from Stihl. This thing flat out cuts and screams. Ran a tank through it and took the Demo back and bought one two months ago. Hands down the best saw I have ever used/owned.
