    Who's got one, and how do you like it? Couldn't be happier with mine. I might use it outside of its intended range once in a while, but heck.. I like running the thing.
    All stock, except for a removed spark screen.

    I love mine. Muffler mod, no screen, 18" picco b.c. set up. A little expensive, but the nicest firewood saw I have ever owned. I hope it lasts as long as my 024 super.

    These saws seem to have a lot more juice than their 42cc would indicate. Just my .02

    I have a ported one, call it the angry termite. Lil' sum' *b-word is so nasty, the first time I ever fired it up, it spit bar oil in my eye before I even pulled on the cord. Punches well above it's weight class. I'm lucky, or maybe cursed, to have several ported saws and this one is not only my favorite, but likely the last one I would ever consider getting rid of.

    I can remember when this saw first came out and people thought i was crazy when i said how strong this saw is!!! I posted a few video's comparing it to me 550xp at the time and people were in such disbelief that they said the chain wasnt sharp on my 550xp lolol. I sold my 241 last year only because i aquired a 2153 that i sent out for massaging. I really love the air filter setup on these newer stihls.

    I have one. It is used by my business. It lives in a truck box and gets used almost every day. So much so I had to replace the rings a couple months ago. It has had its issues but it doesn't owe me anything. Parts are expensive/ limited aftermarket. I couldn't find the rings domestically at the time. They came from Greece.

    I got one but haven't had it out yet . I got it to replace my 201T , I like a rear handle better and I'm not a climber anyway .

    All I have read is good and with a muffler mod even better .

    I will get flamed for this, but I wish I could find a 20" bar to fit mine. Not to bury it wood, just for the extra reach. Anyone know if such a bar exists??

    I've got about 10 tanks through mine. Love the hell out of it. Cuts like a 026 weighs like a 017. Who doesn't love that! I cut some extra gills in the muffler now it breaths much better! 20160113_201803.jpg

    I enjoy running the 562 but like the 241 even more. Not sure if this maple is out of its range but the 241 handled it fine on the first day. Now that it's ported, I wouldn't hesitate to leave the 562 home for this size wood.
