The Legendary Stihl 028 Chainsaw

Let’s face it: most of us don’t need a chainsaw with a 70+ cc displacement and a 36” bar. What we do need is a reliable saw with enough power to take on tough jobs and stand the test of time. That’s the reason serious chainsaw users regard the Stihl 028 AV Super Wood Boss as one of the best saws ever made, and many chainsaw enthusiasts have one in their arsenal today.

Though Stihl released an updated (and now discontinued) Stihl MS280 for the 028, they were two different saws and many chainsaw users consider the 028 to be the superior model. Check out the specifications for the 028 and the more powerful 028 Super below.
