    So I probably know the answer, but is there a Stihl Clamshell case that fits the MS461R model since it has a Wrap Handle ?

    You must live in The SouthEastern United States like I do.
    The rep said,
    "He can just buy the Regular 461 and then buy all those extra items, can't he?"

    I **** You Knot.

    My Dealer was as aggravated as me.

    I've got to call them back tomorrow.

    I want to first thank mcobb2. So, today was the day. I am off all week and instead of hunting bucks, I was starting a new past time, NOODLING. I am not sure how wide my smile was supposed to be, but I popped my Cherry on this saw. I will post pics shortly, but I was cutting 25" Red Oak rounds today for about 3 hours, and stacked 3 full pallets of quarters to get them off the ground and airing out, plus have them ready when I want to run the log splitter. I have two 85' tall Red Oak rounds on the ground, and I Noodled about a 3rd of them today in no time.

    Two things to get used to. A Yellow chain, and oh yea, a 70cc Saw that pulls you into the round. I am going to call my new saw the "Butter Knife", as it just cuts through these hard Red Oak rounds like nothing. What a superior improvement to Noodling with my MS290 Farm Boss....

    That would be akin to being surprised how mush more a single wheel one-tone will drag/pull/haul over a S10 or Ford Rangeer... LMAO.

    I had the same awakening when I bought my now departed MS660. I went from an 039 Stihl being my "big" saw to it and Dad and I used the hellout of it until the day it burned up in my ld truck (along with my 346xp, Husky 55 and Stihl 039)... When you go from a good saw to a GREAT saw (or any tool for that matter) it is amazing the difference. It makes one tend to wonder how you got along previous to acquiring it. Congrats again and a whole-hearted YOU SUCK is in order!
