Hi- I have an older model Stihl 039 magnum chain saw, that was a relatives who passed on. The saw runs good (I have the bow, and a 36" bar for it), but I need an owners manual or shop manual for it. Couldn't find anything on the stihl website-its kinda hard to navigate. Anyone out there got any souces?
Tks- :trink40:

Tkxs. for the info-I went back looked-the tags was messed up-it is a 038 magnum, come to find out, is a discontinued model (too heavy, and didn"t meet emission's/ noise laws) The magnum series were made for "PROFESSIONAL" cutting only. As for the manual, I hooked up w/ the owner of a small engine shop, who has been a stihl dealer for years, and he don't throw nuthin' awayyyyyy! But i will keep the website on a "sticky" in the office. Luv them post-its!!

Tkxs. for the site info-my buddy from the small engine shop came up w/2 brand new manuals-one an owners, one a service/parts breakdown-still wrapped in original plastic!!!! I reckon that'll cost me a trip to the store for him. (work off the barter system around here if I can) :trink40: X2=??

I have an 038 AV Glenn, and it is heavy and noisy... It is one heck of a saw though. I have done nothing but keep sharp chains around! I bought it used and I think I've had it for 20 years!

Yes sir- that's what this one is .038AV- I've got the 'bow' for it , too, still got original orange paint on it. I use the 32" bar on it mostly. Also have a Poulan 25-sd (older one-all metal) for lite trimming. We have a lot of ice, as much as snow, so a lot of trees down in winter-
Got the wood covered for the winter, other than some big pieces to split where I had a big tree taken out of my yard about a month ago.
