    Send it to Tree Monkey and have it ported and never look back. Money wiell spent:D

    I just got mine back last week man oh man is it ever fun to run now.

    If porting is not on your radar then look up muffler mod and trim limiters. MS460 will go down as one of the best saws they have made.

    Not looking to send it out I have waited 2 years to buy this 460. Looking for bolt ons or things i can do. I have an 026 that i am going to port myself when it comes time for a rebuild. What do you think of the 3/4 wrap handles i would like to get one

    You will absolutely need an "R" front handle along with bigger dawgs. Those add ons are essential to "sideways balance" while in the cut. The saw will handle so much better, it'll feel smaller. For example, here are some cuts from both styles of saw handles.
