Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Saw! This is my first saw and it's everything the reviews said it would be. Easy to use, lots of power, and reliable. Have around 30 hrs on the saw; no issues to speak of. Typically use it for 3-4 hrs at a time; it's weight isn't an issue. January 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Impressive Saw I have been around chainsaws for over 25 years, currently own 8 saws from the 200T on up to a 460 Arctic and the 241 @ 42cc is a little beast and is becoming one of the first saws I grab when cutting.The 241 starts easily, idles and cuts like a dream, you can actually "hear" the M-tronic making adjustments when the saw needs it while cutting.The AV set up is a huge improvement over older Stihl saws, vibrations are minimal in my experience.Firewood, yard chores, arborists will all find the 241 complementing their work needs. With a 16 inch B/C the saw is able to tackle many tasks from limbing, smaller tree harvesting, orchard work, even up in a bucket truck.If a small, very powerful, agile, smooth, fuel efficient and quality built chainsaw are on your wish list, check out an MS241 January 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bad to the bone. Working as a Stihl tech gives me the ability to test just about every saw out there. Having a small firewood business on the side has me cutting dozens of cords every year. After the first time I tried this saw I bought one and won't pick another up unless it needs testing. Perfect balance and feel along with buttery smooth engine thanks to the M-Tronics management system make this saw the ultimate firewood saw. November 25, 2015
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!!!
