My dad will only use it for bigger stuff, and he's not in a hurry :msp_biggrin:
I recently looked into this myself. Per the information on the Chainsaw Collectors Corner you could originally buy an 041 or 041 AV with up to a 25" bar, and an 041 Super with a 28" bar. So, I would say it's safe to assume those are safe lengths. If you're not in a hurry and don't plan to completely bury the extent of the bar you could probably go a little longer - especially if you're willing to go to a larger pitch.
Of course you could also go with a longer bar than recommended and outfit it with either a half- or full-skip chain.
There are many other more knowledgeable folks here who I'm sure will correct me though...
I suppose you could do 25" on a 44mm bore machine, but the saw will be happier with 20". It'll oil a longer bar than it can pull.
a little shorter
I ran mine with a 18, and I think a 20 would be just about right for that 60 cc motor.
I would want a little more engine for a 24". The 041 is torquey tho, it might pull it.
I found mine always balanced best with a 20" on it.
I like a 20" bar on the 041 also.
BTW I took the advise 20" it is thanks all
