Now that’s sexy
The perfect saw for that wood. My 461 is still as mean a machine as it was when I bought it 4 years ago.
I ran my 028 tonight, couldn’t believe how small it felt in my hands compared to the 461.
Yep, I was thinking same thing as I was bucking. Gotta go back in a day or two and get the butts I left behind. The white is about 30" and the red is about 34" or so. I can't imagine trying to cut this kind of stuff with the 391 hambone was briefly considering.
Admit it...you're going to want a 066/660/661 in the very near future
Put her into some real wood today. Thing runs like a beast.
Nice! My only complaint is the pathetic bucking spikes. I'll be ordering some 461R spikes in next couple days.
I like the smaller dawgs with shorter bars. They don’t eat up all the length of the bar, and there’s no need with a shorter bar and they kind of get in the way. The saw should cut fast enough and self feed the whole length of the bar where you don’t need them. That said, once I go longer than 25 inches, to a 28 or a 30, I really like the bigger dawgs to lever off.
I’m currently running a 30” but will be picking up a 25” very soon. The 30” got nose heavy after about 2 hours. No, it’s not a light bar, it’s a standard.
I'm running 25". Your right it eats some bar length, but when cutting near bar length wood I don't want to keep stuffing the front of the saw into the log. Plus with 25"+ bar I hate how stock dog doesn't touch when sitting saw down...it rest on nose of bar.
Let me help you.

It’s starting to settle in. I’m already eyeballing an 026 on the tradin post. Just need to scrounge up the cash.
Just ordered my MS 461 with 28" bar.
Headed up to Lake Tamiskaming in QC in a few weeks. The old man conveniently needs an ATV trail cut through the woods. Just in time to put the 261/461 combo through their paces and see what they're really capable of.
Congratulations!!! You’ll love the 461. If you’re over 6’ tall you’ll love the longer bar. No need to bend over at all.
Yeah I'm 6'2" so it should work nicely for limbing. Allows me to share [steal] chains with [from] the old man's 460 too.
Nice I love mine with 25", almost got the 28" but my pm700 already wears a 28" bar for the big stuff.
I find that useful in bucking branches. Even easier is the grab a smaller saw. In bucking large logs, take a knee as you'll enjoy the rest for the 2 to 4 minutes it takes to completely cut a 24". Give your back a rest, and let the log fully support the weight of the saw.
A 25” b&c are on the way very soon for me. Along with a light weight limbing saw. My 30” gets nose heavy after a few hours. I’ve got a feeling my WB won’t be used much anymore.
