I still haven't touched one yet, might be a while as this first shipment is sold out.


You didn't assure one from the first order before they sold out??

How much $ is the saw in Canada? That was a subject on a tread some time ago

I just found out a day ago they came into Canada.
I guess my friend and I aren't that close. Him and another guy in B.C. are buying them and shipping them into the US. Only 35 came into Canada on this first shipment so he says.
I'm in no rush as I got a sweet 066 hybrid and 261to keep me happy for now.

Yeah I guess he has more CAD to share with forum members in the US :D
Another warning for the guys in the US who are buying these saws from Canada, you are on your own if you need warranty.
We may be neighbors but both Stihl Canada and Stihl Inc. in Virginia beach are 2 totally separate identities.
Warranty rules for one doesn't work for the other.
Stihl Ultra and orange bottle mix in both countries are different. Canadian mix is manufactured by Castrol and American mix is manufactured by Omni Specialty Packaging  LLC.
Emissions are different too.

I guess to be able to get an MS 462? 
Or maybe to live in a country where polite, rational discourse is still possible?

There's not much of that allowed here in our country anymore either - save you self the time and trouble of moving!
We here now are having it just as bad or worse.. since our media has been hijacked.
As for the same question I posed last evening (and it disappeared) about moving and having my valid warranty honored elsewhere - considering Stihl's own proud advertising about their Worldwide network of dealers and support around the Globe - it would be interesting as to what the answer is from a Stihl Rep..

Well, let's not go any further down this rabbit hole. I don't want to see the thread get moved.

I took my family to St. John last year, my brother and his wife have a summer cottage on the St. John river.
Irving is huge there.Too bad their diesel fuel refinery had that big explosion recently. Then a couple days later at the same time a barge also blew up there along with the pipeline explosion in B.C.

Sounds suspicious to me.

Builtbybross, Very nice!
I'm thinking you're in the U.S. as a $1000 USD is $1323 CDN.
Sounds like a deal too good to be true.

I would be skeptical. What's with the warranty?

I visited one of my local Stihl dealers today - and there it was sitting pretty on the shelf amongst many others - a spanking new 462CM with a 24" lightweight bar to boot!
Very nice looking machine and hoisting it around was pretty easy even compared to the 362 and 261 parked nearby.
Its certainly no lightweight for sure, but was a lot lighter than I fully expected it to feel like.
One beautiful piece certainly..
I asked about pricing and got $1409.95 plus taxes and that was with a regular 20" bar and chain set up. I would assume with the 20" or bigger light bar it would climb up quite rapidly though..
If I cut big wood regularly and could afford it - this would without a doubt be 'the one'..

Randy, that Stihl 20" ES Light bar will raise the price considerably.
The one I recently bought for the 066 cost me $180 CDN.

My dealer won't bring a 462 in, order only, not a big enough market here.
I'll order one in 4 months.
I'm on my off season right now won't cut wood until next April.
In my warm workshop and it's 40 below out side. :)

I can dress for it as snug as a bug in a rug. :D
Just took this photo on my front step at 9am right now facing NWW.

Sun is shining brightly with a beautiful blue sky.
This snow will stay till spring and the most we will get over the winter is knee deep.
Now I worked alongside many loggers who worked in your area of Ontario and they hated it. Too much snow and always wet. Plus hardly any sunshine, very depressing.  Same goes for B.C. and the east coast. Lol.
We don't call "Sunny Manitoba " for nothing.  :)

Yep - we do get a lot of wet crap and very little sun here for the most part your friends are correct!
I do fondly remember many beautiful clear days and nights up in N. Manitoba  with the Northern lights just buzzing away when the temps got down into the minus '60s occasionally, but as it got colder it also got a lot drier and calmer as a function of that type of weather, so it actually is pretty enjoyable OR 'was'.. time and beer can deaden memory cells though obviously! :).
I but I do know when the oil thickens to the point where it won't flow enough to keep the space heater stove going and it's time to throw a couple of gallons of AV gas into the 45 tank to keep it runny - it's far colder than I would ever handle well now or even want to experience again!
Many of my old work friends - some with families, spent a lot of Winters at INCO's exploration camp in Moak Lake close you, before Thompson as you now know it was even built..
The wives who did must have been true 'troopers'..
