I've used my Stihl MS 440 for about two years. It is a nice saw but mine has a serious problem with the chain jumping off the bar. I've brought it to the dealer but he does not know what to do about it. I've owned 2 other saws and have never had this problem.

Sounds like you have way to much power for that little bar(18"). Suggest at least a 25" bar for that saw.

When I came to buy it I saw some professional tree surgeons and this is the model that they adopt for everyday use (they use a 25" bar)

I recomend the new chain because after some heavier use my chain was becoming tro feel laboured with larger logs so I purchased a rapid duro special blade and it made a… Read Full Review

What? Did you ever consider sharpening your first chain? Anybody who recommends putting a 14" bar on a Stihl MS 440 should not be trusted...

For your knowledge i had my original blade sharpened but it was becoming blunt very quickly. The reason i recommend a 14" bar is that anything bigger can become cumbersome and so could be dangerous to anyone inexperienced, but it has enough power to cope with most situations and with infrequent use which some other models do not seem to be able to do...
