Looking for any info out there on an MS-280

I am pretty sure I am in the right company to find out more about my 280.  Anyone know about manuals other than the owner's manual (which is all I have now).

I to own a MS280 and its my main saw now. I love, love ,love this saw. Great power for the weight,great AV system. And the Decompression button helps big time on starting. Also has a metal case,not plastic. So basically the 280 has all the features of a Pro saw,less the adjustable oiler. But i run a 20 inch bar with Full chisel RSC chain and have no problem keeping oil flying. i use the Manual at the Stihl site. It gives details on adjusting the carb and other info. This saw with the 20 inch bar can take down any tree in my neck of the woods. So i wish u well and happy cutting friend. ;D
