Rated 5 out of 5 by MS 241 C-M I just recently bought a brand new MS 241 to replace my .009L. The 241 is obviously much more of a saw but it as good as my 009 was, this 241 is much more powerful. the best part of it for me is the capability to use all of my old bars and chains. I was even able to add a bar to my collect when I bought the saw. This saw can use a 12 inch through 18 inch bar. I have a 14, 16, 18, and with the 14 on it the saw rips through logs extremely fast and is very controllable, and it also has no trouble cutting threw a 30 log with the 18" bar on it. the only con is price, price was a little high. If this this 241 can and will last as long and be as durable as my 009's where I will be happy with price. November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw! Excellent power to weight. Cuts better than some 50cc saws I have run. Great for limbing but doesn't back down from having the bar buried either. In short I love this saw. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can use it ALL day! This saw is light yet strong. I can use it all day as it’s light enough and it doesn’t quit either. It starts whether it’s cold, warm or hot and keeps on going. It is a bit pricey but worth it for the amount of work it can handle. I am very pleased with this purchase. Thank you Stihl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Power to weight ratio nuff said Was looking for a light pro saw for limbing and cutting brush. Have a ms 362 and though I love it, it is better for bucking the main trunk. I wanted something nimble to dismantle the canopy on th ground. Was looking at the ms 201 rear handle. At a 150 dollars cheaper, a pound heavier, and a lot more horsepower the ms 241 won my choice. The mtronic is nice and starting is a breeze. September 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is now my go to saw! I have been using chainsaws professionally since the late '60's when I was cutting burls and driftwood for a living. I have had the largest power heads to both free cut and run a Chainsaw mill. The saws that Stihl makes are really at the top of the heap. I now own only five saws--the MS660, the 360 pro, the 170, the HT 131 pole saw and the 241 CM.I was cleaning up a 10 acre parcel and wanted a new pro saw to cut and branch trees up to 12". I was using my 360 pro and 170 but wanted a saw that is both light and powerful. I ordered the 241 CM from my dealer before they were officially available(in fact I ordered 2, one for a friend of mine also). I have used the saw for over 6 months now and am really impressed. The 170 was my backup limbing and small tree saw--it is now my back of pick-up emergency saw. The 241 CM is the same weight as the 170, but twice as powerful--1.5 vs. 3.1 hp. I run it with Stihl's new16"light weight bar to shave off a few oz. and I have found that my speed and endurance have gone up significantly. I still use my 660 and 360 pro, but I find myself smiling when I chose the 241 CM for falling, limbing and bucking trees 12" or smaller. Two other thing of note: the saws anti-vibration technology is awesome--no more numb fingers and hands after a few hours cutting and the automatic fuel adjustment for change in elevation works great.Good job Stihl!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality. I have used many saws for decades. Stihl is my favorite. All there products are quality made. I bought this ms241 from a excellent dealer. Beats what often happens on ebay for me. Anyway this pro saw is an upgrade over my homeowner saw. Both are good but pro quality is worth it if you are going to use it alot. Or you just appreciate more quality. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good saw!! On about my 10th tank, great little saw. Good for limbing and all the little stuff. I've been having tennis elbow type problems, so bought this little saw to help take the load off my elbow. It's very light, and pretty powerful for it's size. Only thing I'd change is put an aluminum handle and magnesium clutch cover on it. Only add very small amount of weight, if any. That would make it the absolutely PERFECT small saw. Hope Stihl is listening and open to making improvements. July 8, 2015
