Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw for firewood Bought the saw brand new from a local dealer. Loved the saw and its power. I upgraded the saw by adding a set of dual felling spikes and then a 20 Stihl bar and chisel chain. Fast and great power. Only down side I wish it had was a metal tank and handle assembly like the MS-261. March 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by best saw on the go Real good saw stihl stands by there saws love the 291 has better power then the 290 as that was my last saw and it was a real good saw cut alot off wood March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great farm saw I bought this saw lightly used. The bar and chain was a little small for what I was cutting. So a trip to my dealer I bought a new 20 inch bar, and a 325 pitch RS chisel chain (yellow link). I cut, and noodled two cords of wood without having to touch the chain up after all that cutting. There was some hard stuff too Osage Orange, white oak, black locust, it was still throwing the chips. Was easy on fuel, and bar oil. This is a great saw I don't need or want a bigger saw this one has plenty of power and is very nimble when felling trees thank you Stihl for making a great product. March 21, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by The best It's by far the best saw for the cost. Power to spare have been using it for a year now to clear old wood and cut firewood about 12 cord a season March 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by clearing so balanced and responsive, my new/first Stihl saw impressed me at first pull. also experienced great sales service at my local point of sale. can't wait to cut some larger trees and hardwood but first cuts on skinny pines and junk mango trees are really smooth and manageable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw Great saw for firewood. I have cut many cords of hardwood with no issues at all. Plenty of power even when buried to the felling spikes in hickory. This is not a review by someone trying to sell you a saw it is from someone who uses it 3 or 4 hours a day. If you understand how to use it correctly it won't let you down. If you don't it won't matter what you buy January 26, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by This saw is an average saw. Still has the low chain and bar oiler system that Stihl has always had. It does not oil the chain and bar enough for cutting a larger amount of wood. It works well if all you are going to cut is a few limbs. But if you are cutting a tree down and cutting it up it is very short on chain and bar oil amount. January 16, 2016
