Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great all around saw I live on a small horse ranch in the rim country of AZ and heat my 2400 square foot home with wood. I own 2 MS 291's. They are up to the job and very dependable. I would highly recommend this saw for the average homeowner tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How much could a woodchuck Well if you want to move some wood and take some trees down, this is a nice light weight saw with plenty of power.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is unreliable This chainsaw has never performed up to expectations. The dealer tells me they have no issues with this saw, so I guess mine is the only one ever in the shop. Difficult to start and I've been told it's the fuel I use, which is ALWAYS the Stihl premixed, NEVER anything else. I don't think the self priming mechanism works well. I had the bar advancement flat head screw driver fitting break recently and it was an enormous pain replacing this. It looks like a very bad design, flared, so the screwdriver never fits tightly. I've had many chainsaws in my life and although not expected to last forever, they should last for years. I'm ready to give up on this piece of junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from See review Easy to start,not too heavy, 18" bar is nice but a little short for what I need. Engine size is appropriate for bar length. Over all i am very satisfied with this chain saw. I would definitely recommend it to someone looking to buy a strong reliable chain saw. Buy the more aggressive chain if you will be cutting through some thick material, it will save you considerable time.
