False statement the 271 and 291 share the same chassis. The 311 and the 391 are a different slightly bigger chassis.MS261... The 261 is the most HP in it's footprint. The 291 is NOT. The 391 is. Got the picture?

I had a 261cm I really wanted to like it but it was the most undependable saw I’ve ever owned. It was not the latest vs2 but it had hot start issues that drove me nuts. I much prefer the 550 December 2015 I’ve ran the crap out of it always starts and keeps running and has good power stock. It will outrun my stock 346xpne. And I love Stihl saws just as much as husky/jred. I’ve had several 026/260’s and husky rules the 50cc classIf you can afford a 261 get one and dont look back they are in my opinion the best 50cc class saw.
