Rated 5 out of 5 Great Saw, Good Power The MS 291 is a great saw at first i couldn't decide between the 271 or 291 but I went with the 291. The 291 has great power and being a Stihl product makes it that much better, Im running an 18" bar and is plenty for my operations. This is my first Stihl chainsaw and wouldn't want anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all around saw. I've owned my 291 for over 4 years now and haven't had one problem. I use it for cutting firewood and am not always overly gentle with it. It has never quit me nor has any part failed. Couldn't ask for anything better nor would I want anything changed. Excellent saw. August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by All the power you need This is an excellent saw and i haven't had a single problem with it. I'm a year into this saw and i keep waiting for some problem to come up, but none so far. I have used it to cut up tress from an ice storm, and large diameter trees for fire wood. I have felled several trees from my property without issue. Great saw with all the power you need. July 22, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by oiler problems This saw has no adjustable oiler, there are people all over the Internet talking about how dry the bar seems. I went through a chain and what seems to be a bar in the first 3 mins of opperation.The chain oil us simply not coming out.Huge problem.If the dealer doesn't take it back it'll never leave the shop again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My First Stihl and Definately Not My Last! The Stihl MS 291 is the first Stihl product that I have personally owned and have owned it for approximately 8 months now. It has been an awesome saw from day 1 and have not had a single problem with it. Starting this saw is a breeze; If you do as the instructions say, it starts absolutely every time. It would be nice if it had an adjustable oiler for the chain so I could adjust it between my 16" and 20" bar, but I guess that is what the MS 311 is for. It has never given me any problems supplying enough oil, I just like to over engineer and would like to see a little bit more coming out for the 20" bar. Overall, this saw has been great for cutting my winter firewood supply and would buy another one today if I had to. Great product. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw for the price I learned to run the 460 firefighting. Bought one and sold it because I was broke. Needed a new saw and this one fit my budget and was lighter. Broke it in then tuned it. You have to let it cut at its speed but its a good saw. 3 pulls it starts. 2 on choke to get it to pop, take the choke off, pull and it runs like greased owl droppings. But like any Stihl runs awesome. It doesn't have tons of power. But for its displacement, weight, and price exceeds expectations. June 14, 2015
