    Pre-Separation Air Filtration System
    This time-saving technology boosts the efficiency of the engine’s filter system, doubling the time between air filter cleanings. Air drawn into the engine is first separated via centrifugal force, ejecting the heavier dirt particles before being routed to the air filter. This pre-separation means less dirt to be captured by the air filter, resulting in less frequent cleaning and maintenance.

    Side-Access Chain Tensioner
    The side-access chain tensioner makes it much more convenient for the user to adjust the saw chain with a bar wrench as opposed to the typical location of the guide bar adjustment screw.

    Toolless fuel and oil caps with retainers
    Simply lift the lever and twist the caps to remove or tighten. There‘s no need to use a tool to tighten or loosen.

    Decompression Valve
    The decompression valve, also referred to as 'deco' or 'deco valve', vents compression in the cylinder for easier starting. The decompression valve temporarily reduces the compression in the combustion chamber during cranking and helps reduce the effort needed to pull the starter rope. It is opened manually and closes automatically as soon as the engine fires.

Important Information
WARNING! The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus (Q) additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.

STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chainsaws.
* The actual listed guide bar length can vary from the effective cutting length based on which powerhead it is installed on.
Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% Ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% Ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

MS 441 C-M MAGNUM® is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and plent of power. I wanted to put this saw to hard use for a couple of seasons before a review. I love this saw, I also have a 460. It is nice and light for all day work and has plenty of power with a 32" bar. My loggin buddy that runs a 460 built( ported, bore kit, decked) 36" bar wanted to switch saws for the day because he wanted to buy one since he was tired of packing his when only cutting/bucking 3-5ft firs. He was very impressed at the peppiness and loved the light weight and the little vibration. The only problem I had was with the 32" stihl bar and regular bar oil not the eco veggie oil junk. The bar oil ports are tiny and plug up with dusty wood, but I took my dremmel with thin cutting disc and kerf them through and haven't had any issues since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw Been using this saw for about 7 months and never misses a beat. Going through about 3 tanks a week for the last 3 months and over the winter in 20-40 degree weather at 8000 feet and performs great. Dealing mostly with 18"-24" pine trees and rips right through them.I've been thinking of going up to the 32" bar for reach. With the trees we are dealing with, there will still be plenty of power with this saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not disappoint! I worked for seven years as a sawyer on a forest service fire crew back when we ran the Stihl 44 model saw. I haven't had much need for a saw since then until now, so when I read about all the changes to the 44 model I was a bit hesitant to buy a new one. I didn't need to be! This baby is a BEAST! Not only does it perform as good as the old model, but it is an improvement! The power at reduced RPM is amazing! It starts up right away and needs no break in. Cold weather doesn't seem to bother it at all. Best yet, when cutting old "punky" logs it doesn't get gummed up. I'm surprised how clean it stays after a day of work. I've been falling and bucking large northwest trees (maples, alders, cedars, doug fir) using a 36" bar for two weeks straight and have nothing but praise for the saw. Stihl still makes the best saw for those that don't want to mess around with anything short of perfection! Just be warned that it is a heavy saw, so you better be strong in the upper body or willing to work on getting there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great chain saw and have recommended it to other people I broke the chainsaw in when it was 11 degrees outside and it performed flawlessly, I am sold on that m-tronic technology, no more having to take time and adjust the carburetor when cutting. The anti vibration handle is also a great feature, after cutting all day my arms didn't feel like jello. If you heat your home with wood like I do and you don't want to be wore out at the end of the day after cutting wood, I would highly recommend this chainsaw. The saw also cuts through the wood very quickly with little effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent power I picked up the 441CM recently after having bought the 362 last year and having a 290FB for a while. I love the 362 and use it now with a smaller bar as it now feels much lighter to the 441. The 441 is awesome to say the least. It is a little on the heavy side, but the extra HP make the weight worth it and helps when bucking trees. We had an old oak fall a few weeks ago in the ice storm and today was the first time breaking it out. 24-30 in Dia and the 441 did not balk at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very disapointing bought this due to the fact that my 044 finally wore out due to numerous years of firewood cutting, I heat my home with wood been cutting wood for heat since i was around 10 yrs old,anyway i went to my local stihl dealer to replace my 044 the dealer had ms440 from overstock at a great price put money down on ms440 came back 3 weeks later to p/u my saw,walked in dealer and the owner said uh oh turns out he had forgot to tag my saw sold it to a man that bought all the ms440's he had. so he(the dealer) appoligized and said he would give me a good deal on the ms441 c-m so i agreed reluctent about the computer controlled saw took the saw home returned it the next day due to when cutting with this saw about mid cut in 20" to 24" oak there is no power carb is ranging unlike w/044 full throttle will power on thru cut very disappointed took saw back to dealer and purchased stihl ms362 and have'nt regreted dropping to smaller saw this is truly a better saw with same bar 25" if the ms362 will hold up like my 044 did then i'll have no complaints ive run many types of saws even the husky's truly like the ms362 over the ms441 hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect saw for me firewood cutter/ top groundman on treework crew Does everything from limbing trees for the chipper, felling trees up to 4 ft diameter with no problem anything bigger we get the 880 out. This is my go to saw from small twigs to 4ft trees. The climber even took it in the tree one day cuz his climbing saw wouldnt work on taking down a huge oak with a 6ft diameter trunk, he said balance was great. Took those big branches out just as fast as he wanted to cut em. Get a 25 inch bar anything smaller and the saw is way oversized for the bar and chain, as long as you know HOW to run a saw and when to replace bar, chain , and sharpen chain. Saw will pay for itself the first decent size job you get. Just got to get me a stihl climbing saw now and then start working in the tree so I can give a review on it the climber we got is just way faster/ more experienced than me, but I'm only 22 and he's 49 and said to be my age and do/ know what I know I'll get to be the top climber in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best chainsaw I have ever used I have used several different brands of chainsaws. After buying my MS 441 C-M Magnum I bought another one as a back up.I will never buy any other brand of chainsaw now.I still have one chainsaw that I loan to friends. My Stihl chainsaws are like my dog, John Deere tractor and Porsche, they are not used by anyone but me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One mean machine! I've owned this saw since the spring of 2011, and I wouldn't trade it for the world! The M-Tronic functions perfectly, and the engine always starts in 3 pulls or less, no matter how hot or cold the weather. I bought mine with the 25 inch bar, and yellow chain, and even with the bar burried to length in hardwood, this saw shines!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw! I bought this saw about a month ago and love it! I own a firewood business and cut around 100 cord a year so I need something that would hold up I now have 3 stihl saws and wouldn't use anything else. Another big plus is my dealer that I go to and I think that a big thing when looking for a saw a great dealer to back the product. All in all great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sized beast Bought this for milling and firewood, does well at high altitude, a little cumbersome but I'm not a big guy. Good balance, goes through more fuel than my 362 but this saw will eat a 20-cord pile in under two hours at 10k feet.I occasionally get called to clear trees from the river for rafts, recently butchered a 52" trunk, the saw didn't even flinch with a 32" bar. Full skip chains for 28"+ bars.Saw runs well 80 to -45 degrees, no issues with icing while the company huskie seized up.I own a 25, 28, 362 and 441, honestly, a 362 will get most folks from A to Z, a 441 is a bit faster but still overkill for average joe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a beast!!! Thanks to hurricane Sandy I purchased this beast to clean up around the property. Own many types and sizes of saws, but this thing is incredible. A little to loud but, the power and torque this monster puts out can litterly suck you into the wood you are cutting!! Super easy to maintain. The magneto/cooling fan actually forces air into the intake/carb. area(super charged!) A little heavy with 25 inch bar, can't wait till my 32 inch bar and chain arrive!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 70cc saw for the pro of the weekend firewood cutter. I bought a stihl ms 441 cm from grand blanc out doors. The guys in the shop are great ti work with and know the products that they are selling with no pressure sales.The saw is great. with the M tronic it is always searching for the best settings while cutting, And its always on the rich side. I used to pull the plug to make sure it wasnt running to lean and it was always a little golden brown. 20 inch bar stihl rsc square filed chain and a 8 pin rim with rakers set to about .35-.40 great for softer woods. 28 inch bar with a stihl rsf chain with a good round filed cutter with .30 on the rakes with a 7 pin rim runs great. Great 70cc saw good torque all over the rpm range. Have to clean the filter only about every 10th tank of stihl hp oil and 93 octane. Sometimes it still doesnt need it. Sips fuel puts more money in your pocket.

I also have a 038 av, ms250, ms230, ms170, easy start 180, & a 201 arborist saw. I climb trees for a living, and this 441 mag. is the worst investment i have ever made! I use the same gas can to fill all my saws and the only saw that i have problems with is 441 mag. 2 jugs & 2 pistons cost about $400 dollars each time, once in august and now again in begining of november!still like my styhls but no 441 mag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw, strong and powerful, with extremly low maintenance. I have not had as much time as I would like on this saw, but I am extremely satisfied to date. The M-tronic feature is hands-down the best feature going on the Stihl saw, just wish they offered more saws w/ this option. The filtration is better than on previous saws I have owned or own. This is my go to saw for 80% of my firewood cutting.
