Rated 2 out of 5 by IN THE SHOP AGAIN ? I purchased my MS 391 and been in the shop more than it runs. I brought the saw from a dealer that I have purchased from before. At first I could not get the saw to run. Went back to the dealer, saw started immediately by the service tech. Next day would not run, repeated process with same results. Three days later would not run and back to dealer--same results, only I was told I not was strong enough to pull starter cord. Next day saw would not continue to run, went to another Stihl dealer and that dealer had same result, limited running- pulled spark plug and replaced spark plug after using compressed air to dry out cylinder. Two days later- very poor running and back to second dealer, who pulled the saw apart and determined that was flooding issues and defective gaskets in the engine, Replaced everything and saw ran very well until sawing yesterday 3/18/2016, when the saw would not restart after I stopped to clear brush at my feet. Called second dealer from work site and was told to blow out cylinder to dry out the cylinder- no compressed air was available. A neighbor had same saw model and he was able to finished the job. Got home and blew out the cylinder with air and the saw started immediately.Who carries compressed air into the field (blowing out cylinder seems to be the solution) I have talked to professional people who use the MS 391 and they don't have the problems I do.I have been told that there will no more working on the saw at Stihl's expense.

Rated 1 out of 5 by In the shop again! I have the MS391 less than 4 months and had oiler and clutch replaced. In shop for over 2 weeks for parts. Just got back and used 15 minutes and new clutch came out again. More time in shop than I am getting to use it. March 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent saw for the money Have had my MS 391 for 2 years and have been very happy with it. The saw starts every time and has plenty of power to tackle the toughest jobs.Pros: probably one of the most powerful saws for the money, reliable, easy to start, good vibration damping, good on fuel (usually wear out before the tank runs dry)Cons: a bit on the heavy side March 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It does exactly what I need it to do Finally decided to retire my 30 yr. old 038 Super to back up position. I needed something that was the equivalent(or close) & was pointed to the MS391. Great choice! I don't work in the woods full time any more, but this saw for the 1-1/2 years I've used it, has not failed to git'er done. 18",20", & 25" bars do whatever I need in 20"+ Loblollies, Red Oak,& Gum. It don't have quite the grunt of my dad's 038Magnum. But it's worth every penny I spent on it. For it's size & weight, it's a great farm/ranch saw. If I was working all day, every day in the woods maybe I'd go the extra $$ for the Pro saw, but I sure didn't get hurt buying this one. March 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by big wood power Had three tree's delivered to my home 30 inches plus this saw cut through like butter with a 25inch bar with no problem good running saw very happy with the purchase March 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like a hot knife through butter This saw rips. First thing to do is ditch the factory green chain and get a real chain. After about three tanks of fuel this saw comes to life. My buddies don't even bother starting their saws because this saw cuts so fast through the red oak that all they have to do is toss the rounds in the truck, I do all the cutting. After owning many saws I finally bought a Stihl, I was debating on the pro 362 but thought I'd save the 120 bucks and get this saw and a cant hook for the same money. Great saw and the cant hook really saves your chains from hitting dirt. I highly recommend this saw to the weekend warrior like myself. Plenty of power and starts easily. Runs circles around my buddy's 290. February 24, 2016
