MS 391
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 84reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 This is my first saw. A friend owns an ms211 and an ms291. He recommended a bigger saw. So I bought the ms391 for Storm clean up. I upgraded to the 25" bar. It has plenty of power and has been very reliable so far. I have no complaints with the saw other than it feels heavy at the end of the day, but I don't think that's the saws fault. August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tool I live in GA and have 9 acres of mixed hardwoods to clear. The woods are very dense on my property with oaks, poplar, hickory, pine, sweetgum. I own a 12 year old 025 that I love. I found that the 16 inch bar was too small for my trees. I researched for about 2 months before I decided on a ms 391. I was concerned that the weight, bar length, and power of this saw would be too much to handle. I was very wrong. I used to cut for 1 tank of fuel with my 025 and need to take a break. Even though the 391 has more weight the longer bar and more power means you stoop or bend less. The more power rips through the work much faster. I love good quality tools. I can say that after a week of solid cutting that I love this saw. Lots of people on here have had starting issues. I have none. I choke it once on full and it sputters. Choke it half and it starts and runs at high idle. Blip the throttle and it auto clicks to run. Even if you let it sit for 30 min it still starts first pull on run. If i were to complain about anything it that I can't keep up with this saw. Highly recommend...I would love to use a professional grade Stihl saw. I cant imagine it being any better. August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw I have used and owned many chain saws over the years and stihl is, hands down, the best. July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has everything you need out of a chainsaw. Plenty of power while still be fuel efficient Excellent piece of equipment. Finally had to retire my 1968 041. This saw is worth every penny. I upgraded to the 25" bar and don't regret for a second. Plenty of power to pull a 3/8 chain on 25" bar. July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't buy a cheap chainsaw If you are cutting a lot of wood do yourself a favor and get a Stihl. I love my 391. It starts every time and cuts through wood like a hot knife through butter. It's the first chainsaw I've ever owned and I'm glad I purchased a Stihl. It's easy to use and maintain and won't disappoint you. July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is my Hedge eater! The compression release button makes it very easy to start. Plenty of power to run a 20" chain in hedge, which is mostly what it sees. July 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for home use. The first time I used this chain saw I followed the starting instructions exactly and it started fairly easily. It has been difficult to start since then though. I took it back to the dealership for a refresher course on starting and they had difficulty starting it as well but they were able to start it. They advised that the one weakness of Stihl saws is that they flood easily and that is what had happened to me. When I have used it it works like a dream, escellent control, minimal vibration, no kickbacks. I think I will really like this machine when I get better at starting it. July 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by POWER-RELIABILITY-QUALITY I have generally searched for above average quality in most anything I purchase.I have used STHIL chainsaws for 27 years. I recently retired from a large paidFire Department that purchased STIHL chainsaws for roof ventilation and wild land firefighting my entire career. There were cheaper saws available but our equipment committee never tested a more reliable chainsaw. I purchased a new STIHL 391with a 25" blade this year to use on my 5 acre homesite. I limbed and bucked thousands of board feet of fir and pine with plenty of power to take on the 25" plus timber. The saw is well balanced and average weight for a 64cc motor saw.This size saw is a little big for small trim work (Match the saw to the job).You will feel the size of this saw after extensive use at the end of the day.I'm 55 years old and don't regret buying this size however. I know I can tackle anything i'm going to face here in North Idaho. This saw started on the first or second pull every time. I only use non ethanol fuel. Keep the blade sharpand this saw will blast through your work. My excavator was surprised how fastI could get through the stump end of my largest timber. June 28, 2014
