It aint buried in a big log with the whole bar so not sure yet?
That looks like a 241 log.
My thoughts too.
At least the chain isn't stopping like the ops
You are totally right of course. The log is too small. But who would run another chainsaw than their brand new one regardless of log size!
What kind of Birch is it ?
I keep my MS362CM in the backyard shed. When it heard your video it self started. I got there just in time to shut it off before it ate it's bar sheath!
The one I ran Saturday wouldn’t cut like that - as the owner described it, it truly was sick. Ron
Funny you should mention the 241. My friend with the now sick 362 has as his three saw lineup - 241, 362 and 462. He runs progressively longer bars so it is doubtful that he will ditch the 362 despite the power to weight advantage of the 462.
It runs great! It bogs down a little when I pull the handle in wood over 12 inches. I would say it runs as expected and that it may pick up a little power after the break in period.
Don't know exactly. We have a few different kinds here in Sweden but this one is by far the most common and we just call it birch. Well, in Swedish it is actually björk.
My 192t comment wasn't in direct reference to you or your 362. Sorry about that. I've made a few 241 vids lately with an 18" bar buried and I knew Steve and shad would chuckle.
What chain and are you running????. My saw cuts nothing and I mean nothing like that! I would be so pleased if it did! The second video you showed... if you had my saw the chain would stop 3 to 5 time on the average in a cut like that. I was cutting soft wood Doug fir. ...not a hard wood as you were! You saw right out of the box actually runs good and can cut something. Mine is just a frustration to run, I just hate thought of even running it....its so bad! I thought I'd make effort to run it some more before I sent it to Stihl... JD with Stihl said I could just sent the saw back to him and he would make it right. I still not so sure what right is for Stihl because of what the dealer have said. Boy... if my saw ran like yours I would be so pleased. That's a perfect example of what I think this saw should run like. Can you check the compression for me...I would be so interested in what your getting. Fact If you didn't have a gauge I would ship you mine...just to know what you have?
If jd from stihl said send it back to make it right then why in the world haven’t you yet, if in fact you’re that disappointed with it???

Well you crammed so much extra sausage in that 241 that I have to go out and buy a bigger bar just to tame it down a little.
Where do I get a .404 bar for it again?
You must be new here
I am running a new Stihl RS chain in the video. I usually run Oregon 75 LPX. They are similar and perform about the same.
Yeah, shipping your gauge to me will take a while and cost more than it's worth since I'm in Sweden. I was unable to locate the correct adapter for my gauge so I will go out a buy a new gauge just to get this compression question settled once and for all...
