Rated 5 out of 5 One heck of an upgrade We just bought a home that has an outdoor wood boiler that began the search for wood. A friend had his lot logged two years ago and offered the tops to me for the price of "come and get em". The first few days I borrowed a saw, needless to say it was underwhelming and over taxed for what I wanted to do. Off to Agtrac in Genoa NY. (These guys and gals Rock) I was wavering between the Ms 271 and the 291, Quarter horse more and a bit lighter had me walking out with the MS 291. I might add that I did get the file set as well. (sharpens a 30 degrees.) So after waiting two days to return to the woods I started with the old saw, I figured I would use it till the chain dulled. It didn't make it that long. What it did was make me really happy that I bought the Stihl. Three pulls on full choke and it tried to fire, half choke and off to the races. I had the proverbial Hot knife and those logs were nothing but butter. following the directions, Yes I read them, Two days remember... I stopped after the chain was warm and tightened things up. I think I adjusted maybe 6 times, mostly because it was so easy having the bolts and adjustment screw on the right side of the saw. Looking at the bar after running the saw for awhile I thought maybe the oilier wasn't working. Checked the tank and it was dropping so I lifted the chain out of the groove some and there it was, oil. Not like the old saw at all. Like others have said as well the motor doesn't use a lot of gas. and My hands didn't feel like they were still buzzing at the end of three piles of firewood.So.. Easy to start (I prefer the standing while holding between the knees)Easy to handle, The Gripping teeth are long enough to really do something.Easy to adjust the chain.I sharpened the chain with the saw in my lap, Not sure if that is a plus to anyone but it was to me.Vibration was minimal !!!This saw is big enough And small enough for me that I could see it as my only one. (and currently it is my only one)Like butter the Hot knife*Important* Directions say to slacken the chain when your finished cutting due to the chain shrinking when It cools. (I took this to mean extended breaks and end of day) October 19, 2014
