Rated 5 out of 5 by great saw with super power I have had several stihl saws and keep coming back. This 291 is the best one of all. Amazing power for it's size. Just lay it on a log, pull the throttle and it effortlessly makes the cut with unbelievable speed. I'm 73 years old and this saw is still easy enough for me to handle, although it's getting a bit heavy for cutting overhead. January 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lightweight and powerful Cuts hard wood fast and efficiently. I burn wood so needed something to cut up 16 foot logs with 16 to 30 inch diameter logs. Does it with ease! Thanks Stihl. January 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by bar sticks My saw for the most part works great but the sprocket on the end of the bar gums up and the chain is stuck. My 170 has never had this problem. It has done it 5 times and I must take it apart and clean the sprocket each time. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Stihl Chainsaw, VERY Impressed For my 18th birthday, I was able to pick a present and I wanted a new chainsaw. There was no hesitation about getting a Stihl after collaborating with friends and Stihl chainsaw owners. I picked the MS291 and from the start it has been a great saw and exceeded my expectations. Has a lot of power on hand to cut whatever I need, with the biggest being 40"+ down to limbing. VERY high quality saw here, will be a return customer! January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl performance like expected! Bought a MS291 when we got a job clearing off a terraced, no longer used landfill. We had 4 guys. Me on the saw, One guy in a skid-steer on a high level dumping trees to a lower level where a guy in a mini excavator with a thumb attachment took them to the 12" wood chipper. Honey locust, big thorns. This saw never once gave any problem what so ever. At the end of the first day I was 700 feet ahead of the chipper that sat on the lower level drive. And I was cutting both levels. No problem starting, good power. I personally own 3 Stihl chainsaws and this one did not disappoint. I ran it hard for 3 long days straight. The saw handled it better than I did. December 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw I own the MS290 and have had it for two years. I maintain it change out air filter, refill oil for bar when I refuel the gas keep chain sharp, then it runs like a Bear. A Great Saw December 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Holy Canoli! What a saw!!! I researched quite a while before purchasing the 291. The 291 has great power is really defines the "like a hot knife through butter" saying. This saw cuts easily, is easy to start and very reliable. I chose the 18" bar and it is excellent for storm clean up or cutting firewood or felling larger hardwoods. Trust me, once you purchase & give one a try, you'll be that impressed that you'll write a review similar to this. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Purchase Puchased thie MS291 (20 inch blade) as a replacement for my old chainsaw. Made my purchase decision based on reviews of several different chainsaws, and the high recommendation of my older brother. After making the purchase, I used it the same day to take care of a fallen 50-60 ft tree that had taken out my neighbor's fence. Less than 2 hours after starting my project,the tree was gone, the wood was stacked and I was loading back up to leave. IMPRESSIVE!! It cut through the tree like knife through butter. Definatley worth my investment. I can't wait to tackle more tree projects!! December 2, 2014
