    Can someone identify my saw. I just bought a Stihl at an auction. It is missing all the identifying marks except for the serial number which is 5055612. It looks like it could be an 041 by just not sure. Thanks For The Help.

    Not an expert by any means but I say no to an 041. Many Stihl aficionados will be more help.

    Definitely not an 041. I'm going to guess that it's an 028.

    I'm thinking if it's made in west Germany it's probably a woods boss. And I believe it's 47cc. I have a 028wbeq made in Virginia beach. That would be the newer place of manufacturing and the super is a newer model. I could be wrong. There's different mufflers and different chain adjusters based on the year.

    An 028 Super will have a popup piston, easily visible from the exhaust port or spark plug hole.
