Rated 5 out of 5 by Great chainsaw Bought this chainsaw new after owning a 024AV 16" Stihl chainsaw for years. Had years of carefree sawing with the old saw but needed something bigger for the size of trees I was sawing. Looked at another quality brand but with the great dependability from my old Stihl and the 56cc motor on the 20" bar I stayed with Stihl. Took it out today and cut up a 58' tree I'd fell with my 024AV the day before and was I impressed with the power and speed of the MS291. Great saw and I'm ready for some more trees. September 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Failed the first time I tried to use it! I was so excited about buying my new Stihl MS 291 chain saw in May of 2014. (Everyone) I know told me to buy a Stihl. So I did. Picked one of the Farm Bosses, out. They put the fuel and chain oil in it before I left the store. Bought a extra 20 in. bar and chain too.So today(09/06/14), I choose to use my new Farm Boss. Unfortunately for me all my neighbors were watching. The break was off. Started it. The chain would not move at all. For the price I paid for this saw, I'm taking it back to the dealer I bought it from. NOT HAPPY !! September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features, well designed, hard worker. I've only put 2 tanks of fuel through it so far, but am very pleased with this saw's balance, power, cutting speed (with green chain) and limited noise level. Adequate in every way for cutting down and bucking up hard maple, e.g. I'm almost 62 yrs old and don't have the strength I used to, so I took a long time deciding whether to go for the 291c, which has the easy start feature. The compression on this saw is significant, so it's great that it starts with just a few pulls. Overall, I have no complaints except I wish the price was a little lower -- but then you get what you pay for. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saw is well worth money. Looking to replace STIHL 034, this saw has been great and well worth the money. My brother could not believe how much better this saw cuts than my fathers Husqvara 455 rancher. I would recommend any STIHL saw if looking to buy one. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by heavy duty and well built Excellent machine, High quality in all parts, especially the chain. Feels well balanced. Cuts smooth. Easy to maintain. I like the air filter system compared to my other brands of chainsaws. July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw is a BEAST compared to my other smaller saws. This saw cuts through 12-16 trees/logs like butter. Makes all the difference in the world having a 'real' saw doing the work for you. It is somewhat heavy with the 20" bar, but the cuts are so quick, you really aren't handling it that long...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tremendous saw! This saw is easy to start, easy to use, powerful and can take a beating! Great power to get the job done fast! Great gas consumption, dont have to stop and refuel often! All around great saw! Nothing better than getting the job done, having some refreshments and being able to brag about your chainsaw with family and friends! June 26, 2014
