    Some people here love the latest and greatest out. If that was a new in the box MS460 I would get more excited.

    Agree 100% even though I'm very good with fuel injection and my race car is electronic fuel injected ..I just sent the ms500i back last week from a month and a half long of testing cutting. It's a great saw but my old ms460 cuts just as or faster then it... 460 feels better in my hand but that is my hand an I do understand that everyone's opinion will differ the stihl rep I had for years down south is a great friend of mine she is probably the best rep i have ever had if i had a problem with any thing stihl she handled it every time. She also knew to send gaskets cause I would tear it to the cases and give my opinion... in all my opinion is WAY OVER PRICED JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER SAW IN THERE PRO LINE ........!!!!!!! But as this world turns this soap opera of yuppies and some loggers they Will happily pay upward of 1700 to 2000 dollars for a chainsaw and let stihl bring our pay to debt ratio even higher with good old inflation rates. The only reason I am not a stihl dealer anymore is that one reason $$$ other then that I can't say anything more on it just yet when it releases I'll tell more only thing I can say is I love the color orange and red still

    Damn fellas, way to rain on the parade. We wouldn't be a little jelly, would we?

    Congrats on the new saw. Hopefully I'll get to try one at a GTG this year. I'm sure I'll end up with one on the bench someday. I bet with the improved AV and fuel efficiency a fella could get a lot more work done than with the older models. The 462 I ran last fall felt like a different class of saw than the 460s I've owned.

    Never been referred to as a soap opera yuppie before. And it’s been a while since somebody really pissed in my cornflakes. Sorry if I offended anyone. I’m outta here

    Remember, opinions are like cowboy boots. Sooner or later every (you fill in the blank) has one.
    And I don’t even know what your referring to. I don’t see a picture or link. lol
