Stihl ms 461
« on: October 30, 2017, 10:58:25 AM »
Hello I知 new to this forum. I致e been cutting wood for a few years,I知 an amateur Chainsaw user and mainly use a mtronic ms 261. I知 cutting large fallen beech and oak trees and fine my current saw too small as some trunks of these trees are 30-35 inch in diameter. I would like to get a larger saw like the Stihl ms 461 and put a 25 inch bar on it. What put me off is that fact it has an adjustable carburettor and I would struggle to retune it when the need arises. Is it as difficult as I知 imagining or is it relatively easy? I have seen that the Stihl ms 462 is out in the UK next year,mtronic,I知 thinking maybe I should wait for that. Any help and advice would be much appreciated
