Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw Great saw, starts easy, has a lot of power! I own 2 Stihl chainsaws this one and the 180 love both of them October 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect combo of weight and power I have owned a Stihl 291 for over 10 years now. It saw occasional use until this week. It sat for almost 2 years, and fired up on the second pull. I could have used a 20" bar but the 18" was sufficient, even for the large trees I had to cut, including a live oak. Never slowed down and never missed a beat. I have cut up around 5 whole trees of over 20" diameter at 6 feet of height and haven't even used a gallon of gas. October 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The MS 291 is versatile, powerful, and hand ability is perfect. It is light enough to handle small and quick cuts as well as powerful enough to tackle your larger ones. Though I was unaware this saw was equipped with an anti-vibration system, it now explains the comfort and smoothness when making deep cuts during long duration's of use. October 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by curious........... I've read a few reviews about 1( poor oiling of the chain ) and 2( hard starting, hard to pull start) on the MS 291.( 1 ) I wonder If they are disassembling/maintaining and cleaning the groove in the bar and oiling port after heavy use? (2) are they setting the auto kickback when they try to start it ? My 4 yo MS291 has none of these issues. I also use a full chisel chain and wonder if the semi chisel chain clogs the bar up faster w the .325 bar/chain? October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful and easy starting So far everything is great, time will tell on overall satisfaction. October 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great saw well rounded for farm work and doesn't wear on you after long term use . Fantastic saw that meets all the demands I have on the farm or at home. Reminds me of my Dads Stihl 046 he had when I was growing up. Great value on the saw and it has plenty of power as well as speed. I would highly recommend this saw to others. October 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great power to weight ratio Great machine, a step up from the MS290 in power. This is my 4th Stihl chainsaw and there is no other brand October 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My need for a saw the day after Matthew was great. I am relieved that cleanup has gone well considering: trees broken, trees uprooted, and large branches scattered over my property. The price of the MS 291 took my breath, but as soon as I fired it up and began the cutting process; I was in complete agreement as to which saw I needed. The MS 291 is a little heavy, so read the manual and do not use when fatigued. Stress is a huge factor during an event such as Hurricane Matthew. Take breaks and don't over do it. Because as much as I wanted my yard back to normal, I could feel the effects of overworking my body taking it's toll. I will resume after I have had time to rest. October 10, 2016
