Took a 281 in as a trade in against a 562 last weekend and I’ve a mate looking for a milling saw, he was using his bosses 3120 but it’s time to get his own saw. Would the 281 pull his 36” bar? It’s not long term but something to keep him going until he can afford a 3120/880 of his own.

Probably pushing it, milling isn't my thing but perhaps a skip/semi skip chain would help. The 281 should have a good amount of torque grunt which is positive and they do tune up well.

The 281 doesn't share the same bar mount as a 3120....does that scupper the idea?

I think , in this case it is actually 81cc . 52mm bore , 38mm stroke . Whereas the 288 is 87cc .

Yes.
But I wouldn't mill over 30" with it.

Bar mount is D009.  5.7HP . Ignition timing is fixed so you got to be bold when you yank it over !

I live and learn, thought the 3120 was like the MS880 with a larger mount than the next size down.:$
