It's hard to say. 41CCs should handle a 16" chain reasonably well.

  1. What are you cutting? Hard woods oak and maple are more difficult than pine.
  2. Are you digging in the dogs and trying to force the saw through the wood? Let the saw determine how fast it wants to cut, I rarely engage the dogs on my 359, I let the weight of the saw work for me.
  3. How sharp is your chain? Have the rakers been filed to low?
  4. Is the saw bogging down at speed before contacting the wood?
  5. Your saw was set extremely lean to meet EPA requirements. It is fitted with adjustment limiters also mandated by the EPA. To lean can impact how it performs.
All of these and few not coming to mind effect how fast the saw cuts. This isn't the answer you wanted but it is honest. We would have to see you cut and examine your saw to provide anything better. HTH

My chainsaw pulls to one side when cutting wood. how can i stop this? i have tried sharpening more on one side than the other but i may be trying on the wrong side.

All chain teeth need be of equal size and opposite angles else it will cut at an angle. There is a wealth of information publish by a company that has been dealing with chain for very long time. Please read anything that appears remtely related.

Chain spins when not cutting

Sounds like a clutch issue but if the chain is spinning once you start the unit you'll need to do some adjusting to your carb.
