So far not a single problem and Im thinking unless I get into deep snow I will not have a problem , the air the carb gets on the 462 is a lot cleaner than either a 461 or the 460/660 so no wood chips or snow to the filter, I have not even cleaned the filter on the oldest 462 yet and its still clean

stihl did a good job on making the 462, if the 500i is better yet there will be no need for a difference saw for a pro person .

Ed you ever looked into the 572? You seem to like about any flavor

Ed,
You specified -40 degrees C, but what is that in "F"? (Old Engineering joke...Ö).
I much enjoy your intensive testing of these Stihls, as you probably put more wood chips through one in one week than I do in a year (In fact, I think it was one of your posts that convinced me to get my MS461, and that saw is a beast...).
Be careful out there.

I run what ever I feel works best for me and my business , if Walmart built a better saw than what I had I would buy it , I do not care what brand or make it is , if it makes my life easier and makes me more money I will own it . The 572 Im sure is a great saw but im very happy with the 462 .


So ran both the 461 and 462 today in -40 c temps . No question the 462 is ALOT smoother on the hands , its lighter and nice to run . Ran the ported 461 today as well . Had not run it much in about a month and all I can say is WOW that thing sure moves ;D

Makes sense, how long before you port the 462 after running your ported 461?
How many saws do you have at your access any way

Thanks for the 1st hand reports!  Sound like the MS462 CM is a "keeper."  I think they should start showing up here soon.

I wonder when the 500i will hit Canada (at least six months to a year before the US most likely)?

Im thinking about a year before I see a 500i , just came out with the 462 so it should be a while before the 500i shows up here,

Lets just say there is more than a few saws in my inventory , Dolmar makes a good saw to

newest 462 is a part now waiting its turn on the operating table , It will be a bit before I get it done as got so much other stuff going on, logging, other saws to do but Im hoping in a week or so I should know how much I slowed this 462 down :D

its so wet outside here you cant even think about cutting trees so took a look at the 462 this after noon, Stihl did their home work on this cylinder , port timing is about where you would want it , cylinder plating ends up where the combustion chamber starts so I hope guys seen that before cutting big time on squish band as not a lot of play room before top piston ring has nothing to run on . intake port area is very small but we can change that . Piston is not light but not as heavy as others . So will put piston on a diet
