    Stihl sharpening gadgets worth getting?

    Hi, I had bought an electric sharpener at first and then realised that I needed to change the disk as it was too small for my chains (I didn't know about chain characteristics at first), so I stopped using it and just got a some files and holders to do them by hand which I have some success...

    SOLD!!!! Want To Buy Milling Saw

    Looking to start chainsaw milling. This will be a hobby, nothing serious. I am experienced with a chainsaw, but I have never used/needed anything big. Based on my research I’m looking for a Husqvarna 394/395xp, Stihl 660 Magnum, or any other 90+ CC saws. New is out of the budget so let me know...

    I have a 25" large mount (3002) bar and chain in like new condition. I purchased this thinking it would fit my MS660 and apparently I was wrong... I do have an 880 that I could put it on but I already have a 47" and 30" bar for the 880 and don't really need another smaller bar for this saw. The...

    This is my first post on Arborists it's so hopefully I'm posting this in the right place. I have a recoil starter/fuel tank for a Stihl 056, at least that's what I was told.

    Porting and modding older saws

    Hello all, new to posting but have been on this site quite a while getting a lot of good info. I picked up a Husky 36 for cheap from original owner and it's in decent shape.

    Chainsaw Smoke

    Hi, I'm sure a few of you have seen my dreaded MS211 project on here over the past few weeks. I've managed to get the saw running finally, if not a little lumpy. There's a definite issue with the choke which I'm fairly sure cannot be fixed at this point due to damage of the chainsaw's frame. My...

    Stihl MS211 Bog

    Hi, as you may have seen on other threads I've posted today, I've bought a MS211 as a non starter for next to nothing. Managed to win the first battle and got life into it after some tinkering. Next issue is the ungodly bogging I'm getting. Anything over 10% throttle and it sounds horrible...

    MS211 Fuel Issue

    Hi, I've got a stihl MS21, hasn't started from the day I've owned it. Tried pulling it and an ungodly amount of fuel has pi***d everywhere, the exhaust is full, it's coming out of the carb and dripping down the handle. Something catastrophic is wrong, but what?

    Ms 251 vs ms261

    I do medium wood cutting. Felling and bucking. I use stihl ms 261 as my main saw. Just got rid of my ms 170 which was my limbing saw. Debating whether to get the 251 for limbing if just get another 261.

    too many screws

    I tore my Stihl 031AV apart to clean it up and stick a new carburetor, sprocket, and ignition chip in there. That all seemed to go well until it was near fully assembled and I realized I was going to have an extra screw left over. DOH! I tore it apart again and couldn't figure out where this...
