    Default New toy!

    On an impulse I bought a saw today. I wanted a little bit longer bar on my 372XP, but the only husky dealer is across town and there was a stihl dealer right up the street from where we are working today, so I ended up grabbing a 461 with a 28 inch bar. A proper set of falling dogs and an ultra light bar will be in tomorrow, and I just ordered a dual port exhaust a few minutes ago. I think I'm in love with it.Click image for larger version.

    Sweet, I've never had a 461 or any mid range Stihis for that matter.

    Lot of love for them out there though.

    Nice.

    If your dealer is up on it, there is a MS461 recall mentioned on the TreeHouse. My 6 month old MS461 is at the dealer getting inspected, as it is within the batch.

    Fire hazard from leaking fuel.

    What did the dual port cost?

    Good tip on the recall. I will ask about it when I'm in tomorrow. The dual port was around $65 from Bailey's.

    I'm trying to get it dirty but it isn't really the right tool for what we are doing today. Monday will be a good run for it though.

    Squisher approved means a lot. I've always wanted one but never really got around to buying my own, Im thinking back on all the times this would have been better to have than a 660...

    I had a 046 and a 660. Very good on cutting up a large tree. Have a guy with the 046 start on the small end and I would start on the fat end with the 660 and in no time at all we would meet in the middle.

    I don't think squisher approves means much here. The 46's are pretty much universally approved. But when I sold my business I was up around 20 saws? And I kept four, because you never know. Lol. I don't think I'd be comfortable having less. But two of them are 460's.
