Rated 5 out of 5 very good I love it use it all the time very dependable cuts through wood like a hot knife through butter January 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by tough entry level saw.. Background: climber 8yrs exp... I started a tree service with two saws, the MS291 being one of them. Ran hard for over a year and only things I've done is replace chains and add oil and fuel. I always run a little heavy on fuel/oil mix and properly maintain as I would any pro level saw. This saw has never let me down. Any climate from -5°F to 100°F+. Enough power to stump or power threw burying the entire bar in hardwood, then roll the log over to Finnish it off with no problem. My only wish is if came with a decompression release for easyer chunking for in tree use. Thanks. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great saw with super power I have had several stihl saws and keep coming back. This 291 is the best one of all. Amazing power for it's size. Just lay it on a log, pull the throttle and it effortlessly makes the cut with unbelievable speed. I'm 73 years old and this saw is still easy enough for me to handle, although it's getting a bit heavy for cutting overhead. January 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lightweight and powerful Cuts hard wood fast and efficiently. I burn wood so needed something to cut up 16 foot logs with 16 to 30 inch diameter logs. Does it with ease! Thanks Stihl. January 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by bar sticks My saw for the most part works great but the sprocket on the end of the bar gums up and the chain is stuck. My 170 has never had this problem. It has done it 5 times and I must take it apart and clean the sprocket each time. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Stihl Chainsaw, VERY Impressed For my 18th birthday, I was able to pick a present and I wanted a new chainsaw. There was no hesitation about getting a Stihl after collaborating with friends and Stihl chainsaw owners. I picked the MS291 and from the start it has been a great saw and exceeded my expectations. Has a lot of power on hand to cut whatever I need, with the biggest being 40"+ down to limbing. VERY high quality saw here, will be a return customer! January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl performance like expected! Bought a MS291 when we got a job clearing off a terraced, no longer used landfill. We had 4 guys. Me on the saw, One guy in a skid-steer on a high level dumping trees to a lower level where a guy in a mini excavator with a thumb attachment took them to the 12" wood chipper. Honey locust, big thorns. This saw never once gave any problem what so ever. At the end of the first day I was 700 feet ahead of the chipper that sat on the lower level drive. And I was cutting both levels. No problem starting, good power. I personally own 3 Stihl chainsaws and this one did not disappoint. I ran it hard for 3 long days straight. The saw handled it better than I did. December 26, 2014
