In my case the 462 will be used 80% of the time with the 20" (es light) and the other 20% will be with the longer bar. I wondering if the standard ES will be more forgiving in case of a user error. For example if I bend the bar, won' t be easier to be fixed?
Do you think that the 462 will be particularly stressed if I use it with the 28" on hardwood? The average use of the longer bar will be for for about 5 hours per year.
My wife permits only bucking...
If you bend a regular bar, there's a decent chance it can be fixed. A lightweight bar, not at much.
