Re: Which Stihl chain saw?

>I bought the 290 last year with an 18 inch bar. Had absolutely no problem starting it or using it. This year when I was back at the Stihl dealer I asked about getting a 20 inch bar for it and he didn't think the 290 would be able to handle it. Said the hp wasn't quite enough. He could have made a sale of the bar and chains but he seemed to be more interested in making sure that I was a satisfied customer.
