Rated 5 out of 5 by The Quality I Expected was Exceeded My dad has owned a Stihl chainsaw since sometime around 1970, and the only maintenance ever done to it was to rebuild the carburetor after it had sat for almost 10 years without being started. So, when the need arose for me to purchase a chainsaw, the choice was obvious....Stihl. I bought the MS 291 based on my needs and my intended usage around the 4.5 acres we recently purchased that had quite a bit of wooded area that had experienced drought and needed to be cleared. Once I got the hang of starting a Stihl, it fires off every time as expected and has the power to cut through anything I can throw at it, which to this point was a maple about 14" in diameter. When the weather cools off again this fall it will be time to bring the Stihl back out and finish what I started. The last thing I will mention is the weight comparison to the '77 model I was familiar with. The MS 291 is lighter and has much less vibration than the older models, but in 37 years if they hadn't improved they would not be in business. September 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This saw is an animal... Have owned an ms 170 for about 6 years now and was perfect for cutting firewood while camping and small chores around the yard. Recently bought a new home with a wood stove and fully intend on using it for the long montana winters. So a saw capable of cutting some serious cord wood was going to be needed. After a trip to the local Stihl dealer enter the ms 291. This saw is incredible. Took 5 tanks of fuel to break in and wake up. First major wood cutting trip this year consisted of 2 cords of pine, my father, his Husky 455, the new ms 291 and I. Fell 12 trees and cut them into lengths. Husky needed fuel. Bucked 6 lengths. Husky needed fuel. You see where I'm going with this. Ms 291 went through both cords not needing fuel. Also cut much faster. Both saws had brand new chains. Dad kept saying throughout the day he couldn't believe how well the ms 291 cut. The next day I get a phone call from dear old dad saying " so, I went down to the store today.....". Couldn't be happier with the ms 291. Great power and excellent fuel consumption. September 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by has a faulty part the fuel line coming out of the top of the tank going to the carb. rots and cracks in a very short time on the MS 290 and it looks like the same line was put into the MS 291. It's made of some really cheap material and should be upgraded. September 28, 2014
