Rated 5 out of 5 by Best saw since the MS 044 Recently our entire wildland firefighting organization switched over to MS 461s. This is a rock solid saw that faces long hard shifts and constantly performs day in day out. I own one myself for woodcutting and couldn't be happier. November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great saw. I cant say enough good things about this saw , hopefully stihl continues with this model as it is the last of a solid dead nuts reliable breed of saws , if your lookin for a good saw to pull a 28 - 32" bar this is the one October 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tons of power Best full size saw I've ever bought. Has a crazy amount of power. I have a 36" bar with skip chain & the saw cuts through hard wood like nothin! It's not too heavy, love the wrap handle, cleaning & servicing is easy, pretty fuel efficient too. October 15, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl #1 Best saw on the market. Have taken down a dozen trees, this saw goes through like a hot knife through butter. March 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by this is a great saw hard to put it down. Pull the trigger and hold on this saw is powerful and fast. Cut over a 100 rick of wood this year with mine and still cutting. Only thing I would change is maybe a air filter wrap with purchase. Be sure to clean the air filter after every use. January 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Chainsaw! Great power to weight ratio. This is my most favorite Chainsaw to run by far. I'm so pleased with the power of this saw. It has low end torque that keeps it chugging in big wood. I run a 25" and a 36" bar and am amazed at how well it can pull a 36" chain through hardwood. This is a very well made chainsaw with strength without the weight. I have had no issues to date and predict it will be very reliable like my other Stihl chainsaws. The MS 461R is truly a woodsman's best friend.Oh yeah I almost forgot... This saw has good looks also. Great job Stihl!!!! January 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The MS 461R Extremely Powerful,well designed STIHL POWERHOUSE! I've had my MS461R Stihl for a little over six months. I purchased mine with a 32" bar and Full Skip chain. It's hard to explain how amazing this saw is unless you try one out. I cut large Red Oak the day I brought it home and it ate through the tree like a Nuclear Beaver! The 461 is well balanced,easy to maintain, and relatively easy on fuel. The more you use the saw, the better it gets! I highly recommend the 461R to anyone needing a mid-sized Professional saw with amazing cutting power. OUTSTANDING Engineering from STIHL! December 11, 2014
