Can you find one is the bigger question. I think list price here is in the 11 hundred range in ontario so fair bit cheaper than a 462

Well, since I ran over my 261 yesterday.... Time to try and find a 400!  Wish me luck.... In N.B Canada, if anyone knows of any dealers that have one close.

Monday morning i bought a 400.
Loving it so far. Not in big wood but am in hemlock with lots of limbs. Some spruce to. Fast saw. Snappy. Prob have a bout 15 tanks thru it so far. Tank is smaller then im used to on the 461. Started carrying my go jugs so i can get more distance/wood cut.  from my cans
Exhaust is starting to turn purple so hope its just gonna get better. Ordered a bark box so excited about that to!  8)

Was waiting on a load of gravel for the driveway and got a phone call from my dealer; they finally got their first MS 400 after being on the list for over a year.

They put a 24" bar on it for me and it followed me home. Nice weight and balance for the displacement.
