    I think we already take those reccomendations with a grain of salt. Right Jay? ;-)

    Oh man! They updated the bar reccomendations for the MS880. Used to be a 21" bar, lmao! :lol: Now it's 16-59".

    That would be an awesome saw! MS 880 with a 16" bar & 3/8 picco chain. LMAO

    Are we talking about the 390 or 391? They are different saws, and the 390 will run up to a 25" bar per Stihl.

    EDIT - It's interesting that the 391 has 14% more displacement that the 291 yet Stihl recommends the same bars.

    they need an astrik in there for a 391 w/MM...JMO

    *This saw would have to be the poster child for opening up the Muffler.


    get a 20 in bar too is my suggestion.

    jay mentioned something earlier about the weight being a benefit on this model for running a larger bar.
    I never thought about it that way... I always took weight as being a bad thing
