MS 391
MS 391 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 221.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The saw is worth every Penny. I heat my home on wood and cut many cords each year. I have been using cheap saws in the past and finally decided to purchase a Stihl. I did a lot of research and found that the ms391 is exactly what I needed. It comes with the 20" bar but you are able to put up to a 28" bar on it. This is a selling selling point for me as I have some rather large trees on my property. The comparison to the pro series was also an easy sell. The biggest difference for me was the weight ratio. The pro series is only slightly lighter. So far in the 3 weeks I've had the saw, I've already cut down over 20 trees and have not had one issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Sure wish I would have got a case for the saw for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw - eight years strong. I purchased my 391 early in 2009. This saw has not missed a beat since I purchased it. I once tried ethanol-free gas and the saw wouldn't run on it. I literally dumped the tank of gas out, dumped the rest of the remaining gallon out of my gas can, and refilled it with regular high octane gas mixed 50-1 and it hasn't missed a beat since. When starting this saw, lock it on full choke and pull it once or twice until you hear it fire. Take the choke off and pull it again and it will fire every time. I have never struggled to start this saw in the time I've had it. Within the last two weeks I've cut about four cords of wood with it. One winter a few years ago, I cut two log truck loads of trees with it which ranged up to over 20" in diameter. This saw has performed flawlessly for eight years. I may never own another chainsaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts better than expected. I haven't had good luck with Stihl saws starting very easy, but this saw starts good and with the 25" bar cuts oak pretty easy. So far I am pleased with the performance of the saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great saw for the money Every thing I have looked for in a saw I personally have had just about every brand saw that's out there but this is definitely the saw for me.I should have went with stihl a long time ago. no it's not as powerful as a 460 or 660 but it gets the job done with a 20" bar and a full skip chain she cuts pretty quick can't hardly bogg it out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw A good, powerful saw for some pretty heavy-duty felling, trimming, and bucking. Starts right up after a couple of pulls. Highly recommend this saw as with other Stihl saws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Stihl I have nicknamed this saw the "Big Cat", it has power to spare. Don't expect to use it to limb and cut rounds, keep you a small limb saw or you will wear out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I had not bought it Hard to start, takes several pulls to start even if already warm. Very poor power. It came with a 25 inch bar from dealer. Not enough power to cut oak with a 25 inch bar. Needs no more than a 20 inch. I have owned saw for 3 days and will be taking it back in hopes they will honor the 7 day return policy.
