Hey guys welcome back to our website, today I have a nice new chainsaw to review.
You guys it’s a STIHL MS 2 nine 1c and here’s the saw it belongs to a friend of mine who was nice enough to let me take it in here to make a review. It is slightly used but it is still in new condition and again it’s the stihl MS 291 see with the easy to start feature that’s why you’ll notice the recoil is much larger. Here now some people like this feature and some people do not however for some people it is very handy especially if they have a hard time to pull over a chainsaw to started and this chainsaw here is the successor to the MS – 90 chainsaw which is a really good chainsaw as well and I’ll just turn it around so you can sit completely this one here has a 20 inch bar it’s a. 35 pitch 50 gauge by 80 drive links as you can see here it’s got the tool us adjustment for the chain.
STIHL MS291 Chainsaw Review
It does have a primer bulb here there is no decompression valve by the way guys and if you look on the back of the handlebar. Here you can see it’s a 50 60 CE chainsaw and here’s the on/off switch and also the choke lever as well. This one here does have the tallest fuel cap and the two less oil cap as well. Here’s the brake handle which is standard on all songs nowadays and a fucking spike there.
It does have the an vibration system as well underneath of this chainsaw. By the way guys it is a drum sprocket not around sprocket on this chain saw and this 291 you can see chainsaw is made in Germany. What I have here is the stihl flyer for Canada you can see the MS 291 CBE is 599 95 plus taxes that taxes here in Canada are thirteen percent so by the time you’re done buying this so you’d be very close to seven hundred dollars. According to the steel website always 6.2 kilograms or thirteen point seven pounds.
I’m sure you guys want to see the engine under this cover and to take the cover off you have to loosen three torque 27 screws and here’s the inside of this engine. Its super clean I don’t even think this engine is broken in yet. I like the air filter system on this one it’s quite different from the MS – 90. Now if you’re wondering how to remove the air filter to simply, turn it counterclockwise and turn it in clockwise to reinstall it and here’s the switch and choke lever. Here you can see all the set up for that and the primer bulb and the spark plug is an NGK BPM r7a here’s this cylinder head and there’s the flywheel so overall it looks pretty nice.
I kind of like it myself actually so at this point I’ll just reinstall the cover what I’ll do now is just compared to the 290. I’ve got it – 90 on the table here so you can see the differences and here’s the two side by side here’s the 290. You can see it’s much larger personally. I like the shape of the new 291. I find it or economically better it’s much slimmer up here than this one although these are very good sounds.
By the way guys, this one does not have the easy to start feature and the 290 does not have the tools chain adjustment.
I really like this actually cuts really good it’s got a lot of power and it’s not that heavy actually now I do think if you bought one of these saws that you would be very happy with it now if you’re not too fun of the easy to start feature I believe you can buy the same saw without that feature in my opinion if you buy one of these tools and you look after it’s going to last you a lot of years to come thanks again for reading this review make sure to bookmark and you can see me in more article on Best stihl chainsaw for cutting firewood.
