What Stihl saw doesn't feel good in your hands?
MS290's are just great if you really like something that is really big, heavy, and underpowered with an inferior anti vibe system.
Sorry I really dislike that model and it is the biggest selling model in the Stihl lineup. I am not saying it won't run, cut wood and is a good value, it just isn't even close to a good handling saw.
I have 3 friends that have them and they always have dull chains and do no maintenance on the saws so when it is wood cutting time it is a perfect storm of failure.
