    Review: STIHL MS 381


    • Reliable, powerful, tough
    • Slightly heavy

    Granted not the lightest machine in the Stihl stable but for the kind of trees that I fell from 60 cm to over a a metre in diameter, I have yet to find a more capable machine. I have also learnt the art of basic maintenance in the field and that's all this machine needs. A workhorse of note.

    keep up the good work Stihl.

    I've got an 038 and a 391, I had the opportunity of a 380 but I wanted new after the 038.

    Great saws and capable and comfortable all day for firewood and work, I block up rings with a 13" bar and it's a devil and I push it felling with a 23" bar.
