Sthil 038 av magnum 2 question
« on: December 01, 2013, 11:01:50 PM »
I was at the flea market today and a older fellow had 2 sthil chainsaws for sale one was a old 045 av and the other was a 038 av magnum 2 doth was a little dirty and looked like they has sat for a long time I ask him how much he was wanting for them I was shocked when he said $15 a pice I nearly broke my arm getting the money out of my pocket both saws has good compression the fuel and oil was drained out of the 038 before it was stored I'm gonna try and get it running tomorrow. My question is the 038 magnum series 2 a pretty good saw and what is the difference between it and a regular 038

You have 3 models of the 038 .The Av of around 60 cc,the super around 68 I think and the mag of 72 cc's .Stroke is the same on all of them .Bore size av is 48 mm,super 50 and mag 52 mm .

The AV was all die cast aluminum alloy construction .The super and the mag had a high impact plastic handle .


The 038 mag was superceded by the 044 .It was still being made several years ago and sold as the MS 380 but not in north America .The 038 Mag is my personal favorite of any saw build by Stihl .

Thanks for the great information so it should run about the as my 044. I took the saw with me to the job today put gas and oil in pulled it about 10 times and it fired right up and ran great haven't got a bar and chain for it yet will get one tomorrow and try it out in some wood I like this saw a lot the best $15 I ever spent. What would be the best size bar to run on it I was thinking a 20 or a 24

For firewood a 20" most likely .It will handle a 32" if you need it .

I think in stock form it might have a leg up torque wise  on an 044 but the later will rev a little higher .It's a toss up .Both of them are good saws though .
