This professional chainsaw features an adjustable carburetor in a lightweight design.


  • MS-Wrap Handle (R)
  • Professional Power, Rugged Dependability, and an Adjustable Carburetor
  • HD2 Air Filter

The lightest STIHL professional-grade chainsaw in its class with a wrap-handle design, the MS 462 R delivers an impressive power-to-ratio that provides you with the balance of performance and comfort needed to take on a range of jobs. With the same great features as the MS 462, including the STIHL anti-vibration system, the unique bumper spike design, a slim sprocket cover, and non-electronic carburetor, the MS 462 R also features a wrap-handle design that gives 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.
