This product requires a comprehensive personal handover for safe handling and is therefore only available for collection from STIHL approved dealers. Easy-to-manage, high-torque chainsaw for improved performance and user comfort when harvesting wood or sawing firewood. High torque over a wide range of speeds. Instruction is necessary to recognize or assess the dangers of a chainsaw. Please wear protective clothing and equipment. More information can be found here. The manufacturer's recommended retail prices are subject to change without notice.
The version s available in each country may differ from the above range and specifications; specific details may be subject to change without notice. The decompression valve is part of the easy starting system.
The valve should be pressed before starting to reduce the compression pressure when starting, as well as reducing the effort needed to pull the starter rope. The decompression valve is semi-automatic; it must be pressed manually before starting, but then closes automatically.
Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance. The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range. Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
STIHL long-life air filtration systems with pre-separation achieve perceptibly longer filter life compared with conventional filter systems. Air drawn in is swirled. The larger, heavier particles are ejected. The pre-cleaned air is routed to the air filter via the pre-separator duct. This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged.
The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs. Allows a precise, demand-based delivery of oil. For very long cutting attachments or very dry wood, an additional volume of oil can be added by the user.Forums New posts Search forums.

Thread starter kybaseball Start date Mar 5, Mar 5, What are your thoughts on this purchase? I have a ms and ms now. Thought about selling the ms to get this. It would pull it but wouldn't be too happy about it. It totally depends on if you plan on running a 25"er on it all the time or occasionally.
If occasionally it would probably be ok. If all the time I wouldn't go with anything less then a Joined Jan 23, Messages 1, Location 60 miles north of detroit mi.Forums New posts Search forums.

Stihl MS 391 Chain Saw
On the face of things, I'm a little surprised that the extra 5cc of displacement on the MS doesn't translate into a bit more horsepower, but I realize there is a difference between the "pro" and "mid range" saw line.
Before I talk to the dealer, a couple of questions: - does the MS have a vertically split case like a "pro" saw? I'm OK with the price differential on the MS if it translates into better long term performance and cost of ownership.
I cut mostly cedar elm, poplar, a variety of oak, an bald cypress. Most of what I cut are diseased or damaged trees in clearing and reclamation projects, averaging two to three trees, including felling, limbing and bucking on a daily basis. The trees range in diameter from twelve inches to thirty inches or slightly larger in a few cases, particularly cypress and some of the older live oak. My employer provides a Stihl MSrunning an 18" bar. It is underpowered, and under-length for most of the work I do.
I have to re-hab saws of my own, a Stihl AVT, and a Husqvarna e that I use for limbing and trimming, as well as bucking some smaller wood. This has increased in priority, as I'm now going to be cleaning up after significant flooding in the upper Guadalupe River basin after this week's flooding event.
I decided to go bite the bullet tomorrow, and am leaning toward the MSeven with the higher cost I'd appreciate any guidance or wisdom from those who've used either saw. I've run both, not much on theand a decent amount on theand power and weight wise they are virtually identical.
If you're going to run it several days a week and make you living with it, get theif your an occasional user using it to cut some firewood, you'll be happy with the Jtheo Addicted to ArboristSite.Forums New posts Search forums. What's new New posts New media New media comments Latest activity.

Stihl MS 391 Chainsaws
I would be using this saw for clearing acres of assorted growth and then for homeowner fire wood there after. I wanted to get a 20" bar as I'm 6' 6" and thought the extra length could go to a 24" would help the fatigue factor after felling a large number of trees with limbing.
Cost wise I can get a new for the same as ayour thoughts? We're having really good luck with these saw so far, guys like them alot better than the old MS, STIHL engine technology means low fuel consumption, longer run times and reduced emissions in this high-powered chainsaw.
The MS features our newest engine technology that adds fuel efficiency while reducing emissions as compared to other models. Though equal in weight, the MS is more powerful than the MS Felling trees, cutting firewood and cleanup after the storm just got a whole lot easier with the rugged MS It's always tricky drilling holes in wooden balls.

Tip of the Day. Eliminate fears when drilling spheres. Magazine Subscribe Magazine Customer Service.The MS chain saw features a stratified charge engine that reduces fuel consumption and emissions, while providing significantly more power than others in its class. Combined with an exclusive long-life air filtration system, advanced anti-vibration system, toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers and a side-access chain tensioner, this is an environmentally conscious pick for mid-range users.

A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle.
Precisely calculated buffer zones minimise the transfer of engine and saw chain vibrations to the front and rear handles. The chainsaw therefore runs noticeably smoother. This allows the user to save their strength and work longer. Four overflow channels swirl the fuel-air mix before ignition, allowing for optimum combustion and highly efficient performance.
The result is lower fuel consumption and high torque across a broad rpm range.

The valve should be pressed before starting to reduce the compression pressure when starting, as well as the effort needed to pull the starter rope. The decompression valve is semi-automatic; it must be pressed manually before starting, but then closes automatically. As a result, virtually every drop of chain lubricant is delivered to exactly the right spot.
The tensioning screw can be found on the side of chain saw through the sprocket cover. This removes the need for contact with the sharp saw chain. Due to compression pressure, jerky stresses occur when starting internal combustion engines. The damping element in the ElastoStart special starter grip alternately absorbs and releases force according to the compression pattern.
The result is smooth, even starting. We present some Product Technology features in product technology. Dealer search. Selection Gas chain saws for farming and landscaping.Pigroast uncertainty What are your thoughts? Started by neckar on Chainsaws. Started by Radar67 on Chainsaws.

New user here- found this site and after reading some threads I admire the knowledge base and The new one is going to replace an that's been passed down and still runs- It's just heavily worn and I want the better fuel economy and anti-vibration that supposedly goes with the newer ones- the wrists are getting a lil tired!
It will be used mostly for bucking and felling hardwood in the 12"" range with a few softies on occasion, if that helps any? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Andy Stihl, MS Mac The has slightly more power and about a pound less weight. The was usually not an economically practical rebuild candidate, I would guess the same is true with the Either saw should do what you need. First time you work on one you will thank yourself many times over.
How much they costing? Well Cut, I think the dealers in this area are pretty well on top of switching stuff out with newer models, but from what I've read all around I think I'll agree and look for a instead of the I'm not in the logging business, so that seems kind of steep, but this'll probably be the last NEW saw I buy for a few decades so I want it to last as long as the has.
And I hope you're right Jim - there's nothing worse than having a piece of equipment that needs serviced and you not being able to do it simply because it's not designed for it.
Having decided that Quote from: Cut4fun on October 24,PM. Had one and was a great powerful medium saw with not much weight and a lot of zip. I always tend to go over the hill when it comes to buying tools take them both for a test ride and pick the one that suites you!
You should look at the intended market for the 2 saws. The is intended for part time use.
