    I dont find a the 661c to be a failure. It runs better than any unported 066 or 660. Its also quite smooth.

    The 461 is a fantastic saw. I'm not sure what you could find fault with about it.

    I’m about to pull the trigger on a 372, but would be extremely disipointed if I drop that amount of coin and have a 572 / 462 released within a few months. So I’m considering holding off. But that’s not ideal as I have a lot of oak to cut.

    If I were a dealer for either brand I would be pretty upset by both companies releasing these products earlier than available to me and potentially costing me sales on 372 / 462 / 441. I assume there are more people like me out there sitting on their cash until these saws are released.

    It’s almost October. I wonder if these are going to be available yet?

    461 is a fantastic saw if u need a saw that will work nearly 7 days a week year after year. If it was my responsibility to supply the saws at work I would get a few more 461's while their still available.

    462 seems to have a low intake out of the box. Randy posted that he timed one at 82. From the little i thought i knew about timing more intake usually equals more fuel consumption...

    A strong "personal" opinion.......albeit a flawed opinion.

    It was the fourth quarter of 2018 for the 462 and 3rd quarter of 2019 for the 500i. Atleast that what I was told. Doesnt mean they wont get moved again. Ive learned to accept some old advice. Dont think about it and your head wont hurt lol

    Depends on who's looking for me.....and why.
    I'm extremely happy with my 461R. So much so, I'm not interested in obtaining a 462.

    My dealer had no idea when I asked about the 462, this was two weeks ago.

    I hope they hold off on the 462 until later in the year.

    I get my bonus in March and plan on grabbing a few 461s to stick on the shelf. And I don't want to hunt for them due to production stoppage...

    Why limit yourself to just two? Echos 70+ cc is also on the cusp of coming out. Considering I just noodled a 32 inch bar in hardwood with their current 60cc saw, the new design big brother just might be a beast.
