Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Saw Bought this because I needed a longer bar for the trees around my house (live in the forest and heat using wood). What an amazing saw. It cuts through these big pines and firs like a hot knife through butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw the 461 is an Excellent saw the power to wait is great with a 25" B and C. I have a MS361 also and wanted a bigger saw t run a 25" + bar and the 461 handles it with no problem. in the future I do plan on putting a maxflow air filter and porting the muffler to get a little more out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Saw I've Used The MS 461 is by far the best saw that I have ever used! It is very easy to start, 1-2 pulls and its running, even when the saw is hot, after refueling. The saw is very powerful, Cherry and Locust are no match for this saw! Also, you get what you pay for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saw!!! I cannot say enough good things about this saw! I use it every day for cutting up and felling and milling logs with an Alaskan mill and it never fails to amaze me with the power and reliability of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The MS461 is a good saw. The MS461 is a powerful saw, only thing is it hasn't truly come into the future with the m-tronic saws. I have a 441c-m and a 661c-m and love the pull off the m-tronic in the cut. If you haven't already tried an m-tronic, I highly recommend you do. Don't get me wrong here, the 461 will cut very good, it would just be wayyyyy better with m-tronic and the new antivibe system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 461 Arctic 461 ArcticAwesome machine! Very easy to start, even in cold weather. I love the heated handles!!! I wish I did that year's ago!!!!The service after the purchase is excellent. The saw will last me during my time with it, and I will hand it down to my next generation after me. I'm a fourth generation logger in my family. This saw is a fantastic product! Excellently engineered, the BMW of production grade chainsaws!
