Rated 5 out of 5 Best chainsaw I have ever owned Due to arthritis and other medical issues, i have had to sell two hard-to-pull chainsaws and thought I would have to give up chainsawing altogether. Then I discovered the MS 291. It was the most powerful saw I could find that had a spring start-assist; a great companion to my Stihl MS 250C.I switch between an 18" and 20" bar, depending upon what I am cutting. It is very easy to start, wonderfully powerful, surprisingly quiet for such a large engine, and best of all for my beat up body, it has very little vibration. And a single tank of gas lasts as long as I would want to cut before taking a break.I have owned a dozen saws over the past 50 years, and used at least a dozen others. This really is a sweet machine which has allowed me to continue cutting most of my own firewood into my 72nd year. I have only had to bring it to the shop once in three years. Thank you Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Chainsaw I've been using the MS 291 for the last 6 months. I have the 20 inch chain. This chainsaw has been great, no problems, lots of power. My largest logs are up to 24 inch oaks.I used to buy the cheaper box store chainsaws and if I got 4 years out of them I was happy. I put up with all the problems and glitches because that's what I paid for. Every time I went to cut wood I was frustrated with something.A friend convinced me to spend more for a Stihl. Boy am I happy now. I look forward to using the MS 291, Solid construction, starts with ease, and lots of power. The 20 inch chain and bar does add some extra weight, but I think it's the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME !!! My saw is a important part of my income! I recently upgraded to the 291. It has great power for the price to take care of a fair size tree, but is also handy when just trimming up small branches and brush. Have had it just a few weeks now, but already very pleased!

Rated 1 out of 5 by junk Saw ran about 30 hours. Acted like it was out of gas, after refilling the piston appears to be locked up. Crankshaft will rotate abou 1/4 turn. Probably a cracked piston skirt. I thought these were good saws! April 17, 2015
