MS 291 chainsaw: powerful and versatile

The STIHL MS 291 gas-driven chainsaw offers the cutting performance you need for sawing work in the forest when harvesting firewood, as well as in agriculture, construction and horticulture. It is equipped with sophisticated features which support you in your work and ensure the power tool remains highly effective even with frequent use.

The 2.8 kW (3.8 hp) STIHL 2-MIX engine works together with the STIHL 3/8" RM3 saw chain to ensure high cutting performance from the STIHL MS 291 gas-driven chainsaw. This chainsaw is equipped with pre-separation routing so that you can work uninterrupted for as long as possible. This feature removes larger particles before the actual filter. It is also possible to retrofit an HD2 air filter and thereby enable even longer service intervals, as it effectively keeps dust away from the chainsaw engine. Doing this means your chainsaw has the advantages of a long-life air filter system. The STIHL anti-vibration system reduces engine and tool vibrations so that your muscles and joints are protected as you work.
