I had a 250 with the same problem--so much compression I got to where I couldn't start it. I solved the problem by selling it and buying a MS250C with the easystart system. Best move I ever made. Just gently pull on the rope until the spring winds up and the saw starts. I can't even use it now because of Pacemaker, so I may sell it. By the way, both heart doctor and manufacturer (Medtronics) told me not to use GAS POWERED CHAIN SAW.

I did the same. I bought a new MS250, regular version, and right off the bat I had so much trouble trying to start it, I took it back and swapped it for a 250 with the EasyStart.

The dealer went way beyond what I would have expected. Since the saw had been used only once, and hadn't run over ten minutes, he traded even up. He even refused to accept my offer to pay the $40 difference for the EasyStart. He said his salesman should have offered me that option to start with.

That's why it pays to go to a dealer instead of trying to save a few dollars at a box store.

According to the people I talked with at Medtronics gas powered weedeaters, leaf blowers and push lawn mowers are OK. Doesn't make sense to me.

That seams funny because some weedeater have more viberation than a chainsaw, Years ago I had a poulan weedeater and in manual it said not to use it for more than 20 minutes at a time. I know if you ran it a 1/2 hour straight your arms and hands were tingling.
