The guy in that last video said something about a new chain, does anyone have any info or guess on whats so special about it ?
Husqvarna has introduced their own line of chain now called "X- Cut" followed with a  different # for each pitch and style. The chain as mentioned on the 572XP is labelled  C85.
What I can see from looking at it on my phone the rivets are flattened, the cutter bit appears to be moved further  back from the depth gauge producing a large gullet. It appears to be a narrow kerf cutting chain right out of the box.
To better explain we all know a chain will cut the fastest when the cutters are filed back to almost half with the cutting edge just a little ahead of the rear rivet. That's how this new X-Cut chain is designed new right out of the box.

The host of that video said they tested the the MS462 with a 33RSC chain against the 572XP with the new C85 chisel chain. The 572XP cut 2.2 seconds,  the MS462  3 seconds in the same log.
But the 572XP with the Oregon rebadged H42 chain took over 4 seconds.

Yeah that's a great video teakwood.
I want a MS462C  too but still not available in North America.  Hopefully sometime this year. ???
It would make a perfect team match with my MS261CM .
Reason why I recently sold off most of all my Husqvarnas. ;D

You can buy it in Europe for around 1350 Euros and send it to Canada. ;D

Ouch! A MS461 here in Canada retails for $1,280 Cad.
1,350 Euros is $2,100 Cad :o
I'll wait until they come to my dealer plus I'll have warranty :)

Wow, that's cheap. I heard that everything is super expensive in Canada (a beer around 8$??), but it seems that the chainsaws are pretty reasonable.

Of course the 462 will be a little more than the 461.

$8 for a beer sounds like a price from Norway.  :D
We do pay more taxes here though compared to our neighbors south of the border.  Retail tax here in Manitoba is 2 taxes : GST 5% PST 8%.
But to pay for our infrastructure for a country larger in land mass but with 1/10th the population of the U.S. We have to pay substantially  more tax dollars. And our Medicare for "everyone"  is not cheap either.
