    hello all
    new to the saw game. grew up on a farm where stihl was the only name in saws so that is what i got. just got a used ms 211 and want to get started with it. comes with a 16 but i do not know the condition yet so i want others and a 14"

    the cheaper the better for now

    (i reacreated my account, this is not deja vu)

    This is my first saw purchase. I have used a few before.
    My dad has a 034 and won’t let me use it, he isscared of me hurting myself.
    But i own a farm so i will clear trails and cutup fallen trees for firewood. But i wont be the only saw there. I also do a wood fundraiser with Boy Scouts, again i wont be the only on there.
    Maybe cutting a couple times a month.

    It did confuse me for a second lol.
    Sounds like a good saw for what your doing/skill level.
    The first thing I would recommend is learning how to sharpen chains well, this will be the best upgrade you can do to most saws as a sharp chain helps in so many ways.
    Let us know what size chain it comes with when you get it.

    It looks good.
    That's 3/8 picco, I like it a lot on the smaller saws. Run it and see what you think with that length as it's not a true 16 anyway.
    A sharp chain will be your biggest friend.
