I just purchased a Stihl chainsaw that has no size plate. Can I get the size of the saw via the serial number?

If the sale was registered, a Stihl dealer should be able to tell what it is, and where/when it was sold. There are no codes in the serial number though, except that the first digit tells in which country it was made.

You can find the model if the saw was registered at time of sale. Just serial and anyone has access to stihl can look it up.

Part numbers are present on most of the parts. The first four digits would help in some clue to identifying the model.
eg
1120 = 009, 011, 010,012
1116 = 015
1128 = 044, 046, MS460, MS461
1125 = 034 036 MS 360
1122 =064 066 and so on

Is there any logic to Stihl's model numbers?

Seems so. The name of most professionel saws seems to be pretty close to the displacement in inches.

034 = 3.4 (actually 3.448)
MS 200 = 2.0 (Actually 2,136)
MS 660 doesn't quite fit = 5.590

When I visited Stihl in Waiblingen I asked why they named the saws like that, but they didn't know that they did or why!!!

In 1998, when I met my first man from Stihl, the models were numbered with even numbers for the professional  models (020, 024, 026, 034,036, 038, 044, 046, 064, 066, 088)
And the non professional models had odd numbers (017, 019, 021, 023, 029,039)
Then came the MS prefix. The answer was it helped to add  versions of an existing model in the future.
So 046 became the MS460 with the newer MS461, 021 MS210 with the newer MS211, 038 became the MS380 and now it is the MS381.
There definitely are some exceptions such as the 018 a non pro saw with even number or the MS650 a pro saw with an odd number and others but  in general the even number for pro and odd number for non pro applies. In the MS it would be the second digit.
