Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best saw I've owned The MS391 has impressed me immensely! Stihl had done a great job packing this much power in the saw. Wow. I've paired it up to Husqvarnas of equal stats on paper and the 391 blows them away. Stihl is the only way to go, and this MS391 is the best for my ranch. Now to find somewhere close to me that sells full-skip chains!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POWERHEAD SIEZED 9 DAYS AFTER WARRANTY MS391 along with the case of premixed fuel. never had a problem starting. Today I dropped a an 18 inch walnut and noticed the power head was smoking. I reached to pull the start lever and it seized up. I let the machine cool for awhile which I assume did not take long since it's 35 degrees here. Still no luck. So I spent a lot of money for something that performed well for awhile. I used duratac chain oil and the manufacturers gas. I still have 2 cans left! Now the warranty is up and I'm sure as not going to spend this much money on something that lasts under one year. The issue for me is this happened 5 days after the 1 year warranty ended. This is not my grandfathers engine company.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No lie, my brand new Stihl left me high and dry out in the field on the first day on the first tank However I will continue to outfit my company with Sthl equipment, my problem with Stihl and every other manufacturer is that cheaper metal and plastics have taken the place of reliable, heavy duty metal parts. Two weeks ago I purchased my newest Stihl chainsaw to replace my 310 that needed some more shop time. Out in the field on my first tank of gas on my first chain re-tightening, while attempting to tighten the brand new chain on it's maiden voyage one of the tabs broke off the chain tightening mechanism and with no way to tighten the chain I was done for the day.When I returned the saw for repair I was informed that my (less than 24 hours old) new Stihl would not be covered under warranty and in fact I would not only pay for the parts and the labor but shipping as well.If this true story doesn't compel your company to strive for better customer service for its long standing customer base, I don't know what will.Long time customer,Scott Carpenter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tuff saw I run an Excavating business sometimes I get Into brush jobs where i need a bigger saw.I had a farm boss I thought it was tuff until I bought this thing. With a 20 inch bar it's hard To pull this saw down. Cuts twice as good as farm boss does. Eats hard wood up like candy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around saw I bought this saw for home firewood cutting and property maintenance . Saw has great power with a 20" bar on it and runs even better cutting bigger stuff with a half skip chain. Installed some real dogs because the little ones that come on it are worthless. (My only complaint) --helps with bucking logs. "Stihl the best" is a worthy saying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power and light enough for east handling, great product support , can be a little sensitive to flooding The 391 seems very well made. It handles beautifully with lots of power for large diameter and hard wood. Its light enough for sustained day-long cutting. Mine is fairly sensitive to flooding during starts - just takes getting used to each others little idiosyncrasies. I definitely recommend this saw for fairly heavy usage.
