With the same great features as the MS 462, including the STIHL anti-vibration system, the unique bumper spike design, a slim sprocket cover, non-electronic carburetor, the MS 462 R also features a wrap-handle design that gives professional users improved comfort in certain situations, such as use with long guide bars and allows for the saw to be used in multiple positions for felling or limbing with hands in the proper positions.

Warnings and Safety
Proposition 65 Warning: Cancer and Reproductive Harm
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION The occurrence called “kickback” can cause serious or fatal injury. Always read the instruction manual carefully before using your saw. STIHL uses a green and yellow color-coding system to help you select a powerhead, bar and chain combination that complies with the kickback requirements of ANSI Standard B175.1 (gasoline-powered saws) and §30 of UL 1662/ ANSI Standard B175.1 (electric chainsaws). Ask your STIHL dealer about safe operating procedures and the advantages of the STIHL Quickstop® chain brake, STIHL Quickstop® Plus additional chain braking feature, STIHL reduced kickback bars and STIHL low-kickback saw chains.

STIHL recommends the use of green reduced kickback bars and green low kickback chains on all STIHL chainsaws.
WARNING! Improper use of any power tool may cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand, and follow carefully the operating and safety instructions in your instruction manual before using such products.
