Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECTION ALL AROUND If I could give this chainsaw 6 stars, I would. It deserves it. I have owned it for 3 years and it has performed absolutely flawlessly. It is easy to start, perfectly balanced with a 20-inch bar, and has more than sufficient power to cut through anything. With a 25-inch bar, the nose tends to dip a little, but the saw has no problem handling the extra load. I have used it for felling, limbing and cutting maple, black walnut and many dead ash trees, some as large as 30-inch in diameter, with 20- and 25-inch bars, and it has performed perfectly. The design and quality are out of this world. Just the sound of the saw when idling between cuts, with its rhythmic BRMMM-BRMMM-BRMMM, is enough to make you feel good and lets you know that you are holding the right tool for the job. It just doesn't get any better than this! The ideal all around saw and worth every penny. Little wonder that the MS 362 has received more reviews than any other chainsaw in STIHL'S professional series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Boy Toy I’m not a professional but I do cut a fair amount of trees, some of which are quite large. There’s no question that a smaller saw would have met my needs but I wanted a saw that would make quick work of the largest trees.....the 462 did not disappoint!As you would expect from any Stihl product, it’s easy to start, well made and runs great. No surprise that it cuts right through any 18” - 20” log, but again, I wanted a saw that would do the same with big logs. My largest cut so far has been a 40” white oak, sliced right through it. Keep the chain sharpened and lubricated and it’ll get the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done Traded my MS391 for this saw, very pleased. Started with the 025 and have owned the MS271. My MS462 is matched with my MS261, great combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh...Yeah..... This saw is a beast. It will rip through red oak like it was pine. It has 20% of the Hp of my tractor. That's amazing. Already put allot of trees through this saw. Been bucking 42"-50" rounds lately. It never fails. Starts promptly. You might think it's heavy - but after the first 4-5 days....you won't notice. Wear a face shield - otherwise those 1/2" chips and shavings will get caught in your teeth as you grin felling those 100 footers. This animal will make you feel 20 years younger. And 30 pounds lighter. Your wife will start calling you 'tiger'. And your kids will start respecting you again. Get the saw.
