029 from ebay
« Reply #1 on: March 22, 2004, 06:13:11 PM »
Bought a Stihl 029 on ebay last weekend.  Got it today.  It was listed as a parts saw missing muffler and bar and chain.  I got it for a parts saw because I needed handles for mine.  Put my muffler on it and some gas and it sounds good. 8) 8)  So I put my bar and chain on it and it cuts good too.  ;D  What a deal.

Good deal wiam! I've been looking around for a parts saw too, an 044. Haven't found one yet at the right price so I guess I'll keep looking.

Hi Red,

Somebody on eBay had about a dozen Stihl handles for sale. If you can't fine them let me know and I'll help you look.

How do guys like your 029. I have one, but lacks power, bogs out a lot under load.

too heavy, if a saws gunna weigh 15 pounds, it should cut like a 044. i have a 16 inch bar on mine, keeping the chain SHARP, it will still bog down.
its good to have on hand, but id be upset to have to use it every day.

I have a MS290 and I like it fine.  It's a tad heavy, especially for all day use, but I haven't had any power issues, but then I'm not cutting particularly big wood, or very much hardwood either.  I think it's a pretty good deal in terms of a firewood sort of machine, and I'm happy with mine because I'm a firewood cutter and deck demo man, so the 290 suits me.
I don't think my 290 would run a 20" bar very well, and Stihl is probably not doing anyone a favor claiming this saw can handle that kind of thing...

i wear a 20" bar on mrine for felling big uns, ifin my larger saws are dead. dosent cut too bad, bit underpowerd when taking out a notch. again, i like the 16" for a nice fit. an 18" bar balances the saw nicer.

Kevin, I was going to ask the same thing... my saw hasn't bogged down except when I cut a hinge a little too thin on the last tree of the day a few weeks ago, and then for some reason or another the saw just plain stopped and on top of that it seemed to be stuck in the cut too!!   ;)

I fought with a couple of small balsm the other day.
I could have climbed them and taken the tops down or put a rope on them and pull them over but it was late in the day and I was tired so I tried taking the easy way out and just cut them.
The upper branches were caught in the strand and cable so I made sure I had a wedge before starting but the wedge wasn't enough and they didn't give up without a fight.

The "easy way" looks pretty good if you've already burned 4000 calories that day humpin lumber...
