    Thanks for the QUICK replies!

    I have a buddy that had an old 041 when we cut wood in high school, this past weekend, he used my stihl and shindaiwa saws and was remembering his 041 (that he lost in pawn 15 years ago). So as a christmas gift I just got an 041AV off of e-bay for $112 to fix-up for him. Talked to seller before buying and he agreed to refund my money if I didn't like what I recieved. It needs starter recoil housing and has cut approx. 25 pickup loads of firewood with it since he bought it new. Sure hope its not a boat anchor. Anyway thanks for the fast replies.

    I can beat an 041 stihl with 20" new Sithl fullcomp chain with my muffler modified husky 136 with a 14"91VS in hardwoodof less than 7 inch diameter. That should in itself mean that the saw is outlived its useful purpose. Great saw - it just outlives its usefullness.

    Otto,
    I've seen you post that fact before and the only way it makes sense to me is if there is no wood over 7" in Arkansas.

    041 vs 136

    I know, I know. Its an old saw. wasn't designed as an rpm modern model, but it holds sentimental value to my buddy.
    BTW I would take the 136 challenge, of course I pick the log.
    22" hackberry? ok with ya? that's where 041's like to play! lol.
    I'm just playing, I really like this site, lots of info, read all posts everyday. GREAT group of guys & gals! Thanks.

    Otto, I could beat that 136 of yours with a hand lopper, but only in wood under 3/4".

    Want to takes bets on which saw would win in 40" redwood? My 111S or your Husky?

    041

    I just rebuilt and sold one this year. The guy came in and wanted nothing else.
    There was a lot of difference in how they ran ,one saw to another. I have one I would put up against anything, it runs that good, but another is a dog, just never makes the power. Both in excellent shape and tuned to spec. Porting may leave a little to be desired.

    Has anyone ever seen an 041G? The only gear driven saw by Stihl, other than the 090G. It was supposed to be good for cutting driftwood.

    I believe they also made a reduction-drive Contra that used a roller chain.

    Hi John, here's a direct drive Stihl Contra, 106 cc. They also made a "G" model which was gear driven as you said. I think it was 133 cc.

    I'll have to verify that there is wood over 7" here in Arkansas;-) hey, I'm working on an old 041av that my grandpa gave me. I used to have an old 041av super. Does anyone know the difference between the 2? Haven't got this one running yet, it's got a 20" 3/8 bar/chain. Had a 28" on my old super for stumps in my first days in the trees.
