August Piltz Testing Stihl MS250 with 24 inch Cannon bar also note PILTZ long feller dogs, see our site for MS250 cutting old growth Doug fir. The MS250 motor is completely stock, this is Bar&Chain&sprocket mods only. The felling dogs are for sale here:
WARNING! Never one hand a saw as you may see me doing at times unless you have our equal in training, especially with short bars as it can kill you, I have about 30,000 hours of trigger time on chainsaws, an experienced timber feller knows how and when to do things safely that will likely kill you. Long bars with big saw dogs make a saw many times safer to operate than a short bar & no dogs. Stihl makes saws that can only be used one handed but they purposely price them very high to keep the inexperienced away.
Kickback: Short bars are more deadly than long bars, and the most critical important advise I can offer is have a death grip on the pistol of any saw, it’s when you lose that pistol grip that the saw can spin around on the handle bars and cut you open, the handle bars often work against you, when you lose control of the rear pistol grip the saw will pivot on your other hand holding the handle bars, your hand works like a bearing for the saw to spin around on, short bars can spin around and cut you open in milliseconds when you lose control of the rear pistol grip. We get a lot of comments from well meaning arborist who don’t like us one handing saws and yet they all own one handed saws. Timber fellers one hand saws all the time, It’s the pistol grip on saws that must be controlled at all times, all said we recommend you have a firm grip with both hands. Felling dogs help immensely to control kickback, if your saw doesn’t have them buy some, they are available here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/272172015565?ssPageName=STRK:MESOX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1559.l2649

This long bar on a MS250 has worked out so well we now sell this saw with 32 inch bar, we have to date about 150 of these saws built with the 32 inch bar and every single person loves it and sends us positive feedback about how well it works, see below:
These are particularly useful to arborist work.
