Screams well at high r's...It sounds like your low end is a little on the lean side, though. At 2:23, you REALLY hear it.

Mine starts in WAY less pulls than yours:laugh: I love the ms290 even though its not even a commercial unit. I know it will last me forever and make good money.

you mean 029? they are great saws. Tough as he'll. I would never buy another saw but stihl and an old jonsered.

Just a tip here. You might want to put the chainbrake ON if you're going to drop-start your saw like that. You're really supposed to have it on no matter how you start the saw, but it's VERY important if you dropstart your saw which is technically another no-no. And another thing I noticed was you didn't wrap your thumb all the way around the grip.

I would have been more interested in your video if you would have chased the neighborhood kids around the block.

Next video should be you busting into your sisters room at 2am scaring the crap out of her.
