MS 461 R

Fuel efficient and low maintenance, now with a wrap-around handle (R).

MS 461 R
MS 461 R is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's a Right Tool for Every Job and for trees over 8 foot diameter; this is the right tool. I have never had a chain saw make me feel like a kid again as an adult. I knew it would have plenty of power but I didn't think it would make me feel small again. It made me smile to feel small again if only for a little while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Saw! I run Sthils 36" "Light" bar on my 461R and couldn't imagine running anything else on the saw. No it has never bogged down because of it. Ive got 4 smaller Sthil saws and I enjoy reaching for an appropriately sized saw for what I'm cutting. I wish Sthil made "Light" bars for all their saws. They are AMAZING! My 461R came with the standard 36" bar and it felt real nose heavy. I swapped for Sthils "Light" bar (yes it cost more) and the saw feels lighter than my MS310! The extra money is worth every penny in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just an awesome saw! Purchased the saw new in august with 28 bar". I have put through it's paces. The emerald ash borer decimated my trees. Long story short, saw hasn't missed a beat! 40 face on the fence right now! I love running this saw, and will add that it is less tiresome to run than my older MS 310. I can't wait to run the 20" bar on it. Erik

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The saw the pro loggers use the most here. I got this as I have to work some big trees and I needed a powerful saw. I have a 25" and 28" bar, it will take a 32". With the 28" it cuts through logs fast. This saw makes work get done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding saw This is a very reliable model and a beast of a chainsaw. I used almost every day, it's very easy to handle and has been easy on my body. Very easy to start and maintain, best of all it cuts through everything I throw at it with ease. This saw is probably overkill for the average user but a must for those who need a heavy duty reliable saw on a daily basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 084AV and 066Mag have a new brother Been using a 066 Magnum and a 084AV for a long time and last month I bought a MS461R and this saw is doing a great job cutting big timber. The two other saws have been great powerful saws and the 461 R is right up there with both of them with power but lighter and more fuel efficient than both . Myself and my brother run a WoodMizer Mill and cut tons of fire wood and this saw fits in great for what we do !
