Hey everyone, so I am new to this forum. I have checked out several threads on the subject of MS 461 vs the older MS460, but I am still undecided. I previously owned an MS361, but found it lacked power for some bigger jobs. I called my local dealer here in Canada, and he had an MS460 priced at $950 plus tax, an MS461 priced the same ($950). So far, I have ruled out the MS441 as it is only slightly cheaper and has less power at the same weight etc.... My biggest issue is deciding between the older MS460 and the newer MS461. From what I have read, there are minor improvements on the newer MS461, although I have also heard that people will pay an arm and a leg to get their hands on an older 460. Basically what I want to know is which of the two is more reliable? What would be the pros and cons of each saw? Thanks guys, and I hope you can help. I could also get a MS660, but they are a bit more...($1150) here.
