    I found this site on a web search. I found this topic interesting so I researched it further. The only manual I could find on the 090 was in German it took me a bit but I tranlated it. So here it is the difference between an 090 and a ms 880. A ms 880 has a displacement of 121.6cc (7.42 cubic inches) and a hp rating of 8.6. The 090 has a displacement of 137cc (8.36 cubic inches) and a hp rating of 8.5. The conclusion is this, the 880 has .1 more horsepower and the 090 has .94 more cubic inches which in most cases means torque. In my opinion that makes them both equally superior!

    No replacement for displacement. You guys that actually use these things must be on the verge of being supermen...just running the MS390 on the ground is taking some getting used to. The MS880 or 090 with a 42-60" bar will be one heavy saw...and I know some go even bigger! For anyone that's interested, have y'all checked out the link to earborist in the sponsor section where the guy is selling MS880s for $500USD unless I misunderstand?

    I wondered the same thing. Suspicious that maybe he stole them or they are rejects in one way or another. If legit it is way cheaper than I;ve ever seen even an 044. I paid that much for the 390. Oh well, I'm too city boy to carry around an MS880 anyway even though they do look cool.

    The way I read this ad is that the saws are used but have new bars. Keep this possibilty in mind as you determine what a smokin' deal this guy is offering.

    Info on 090


    I found this information in the manual itself. If you would like to see it yourself do an "image" search on google for Stihl 090. Its in German but it is all there from the manufacturer.

    Sorry dude. No need to yell. I was going off of the information I had...the same way you were. I didn't get upset did I?

    I have one source stating 8.5, and another stating 9.0. Both numbers could very well be correct at different times and/or markets. :cool:
    (Stihl originally stated 13hp SAE....... :alien: )

    I have seen different statements from Husky on the 3120, varying from 8.4 to 9.2 hp.........

    Thanksk SawTroll. I was wondering if it had something to do with different years and market models.

    So Stihl did originally say 13 hp eh?

    Where does the "G" model fit in? Weren't you gonna post specs John?

    Never have run an 090 or an 088/880. But did run a 076 back in the 80's tha had a 36" bar on it. Needless to say, the 2 summers I ran that saw, I was an in shape dude come fall football season. I think it was near 30 pounds with the bar and chain.

    My memory slipped a bit, the 13 hp rating is from CSCC.

    A Stihl add from 1967, that was posted here some time ago, said "15 giant hp".
    The tread is still here, but the attachment is gone. It was posted by che.
