Rated 1 out of 5 by Rough start to owning my first Stihl product Very first time out after purchasing this saw, it would not start. After approx. 7 pulls on the cord, the cord pulled right through the handle leaving the chainsaw useless for the entire weekend. Had to return it to the dealer for repair. March 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the saw! I thought I wouldn't be able to replace my 026, but the MS 291 stacks up great! March 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best chainsaw I have ever owned! We heat our home entirely with firewood that we cut ourselves, so a reliable and powerful saw is a must. This is the first Stihl I have ever owned and now wouldn't buy any other brand. Best chainsaw I have ever owned!! February 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by fuel efficiency at its finest with PLENTY of power being born and raised in the state of Oregon i have owned/operated many chainsaws in my lifetime. the 291 literally 'melted' through a Rock Maple yesterday afternoon when Wisconsin's weather had moderated enough to fell that tree. this machine is VERY fuel efficient, is easy to start, and a workhorse that is 'Second-To-None.' i am Very Happy that i searched until i found the 291 as its popularity here keeps them sold out often. FIVE STARS from someone that used a Felling ( a two-cylinder beast ) Saw and worked the slopes of Mount Saint Helens years ago. February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by After owning a 24 year old Farm Boss the clutch goes out. Wow!!! Great Chain saw!!! I bought my house 24 years ago. The first thing my wife does is goes out and buys me all StihL products! Seeing th reviews about these saws I have to say you haven't seen nothing! This saw has been worked to death 28 trees in my back yard and every year cutting fire wood for my house. Its' been and all my Stihl products have been great to me.Oh I have to add I am no stranger to cutting trees down! Doing almost all my life.BW February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features/value Wow one saw that last and works when I need it. Plenty of power, I just let the saw do the work. Starts every time and doesn't wear me out. Runs quieter and is light weight. February 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by No decompression valve I have a larger 391 which is easy to start because of the decompression valve.When trying to crank the 291, it's hard to get a smooth complete pull because there is no valve. My other complaint is the short piece of vinyl string that holds the oil cap on. I pulled it out. The 291 is a good saw except for that. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New 291 10 trees in... My old larger Stihl saw was a problematic 280. It was made only one year. It had lots of great features and cut well when it ran but was problematic.So after about 9 years it was time to replace it. I chose the Farm Boss 291 at the recommendation of my trusted local hardware dealer.In three tanks I have dropped 10 trees, cut and moved a huge dead Oak to finish a road to my back property and have dropped bucked and rounded all the oak trees to fill next years firewood. 3 cords/4 trees (I like to stack oak two years but these trees died 2013 from the 2012 drought stress/hypoxilon so they should be ready this fall.)This 291 saw cuts powerfully and it's not even broken in yet. It starts easier than my smaller 280 motor, cuts faster and is a winner. A+. I even verified the inertia chain lock works in addition to the guard lock bar. I do not recommend you do this yourself! This is a powerful machine, so use it safely and correctly and your firewood chores just got easier. Can't speak to it longevity but I suspect it will be good for years to come. My little 017 is 14 years old and going strong! February 13, 2015
