    I just noticed that you're in STL - we might be neighbors! Everyone's philosophy and needs are different, but I'm finding more and more value in having a small and light saw available. I suspect if you spring for that 193, it will become the saw you reach for the most. I just can't overstate how handy a small and lightweight saw is, especially for the kind of cutting we're into with our local flora.

    Finally picked up the MS 461 today. I'm in love with the engine note. Can't wait to take this puppy up to Quebec with me next week.

    Nice your gonna love it!

    I'm sectioning these up this weekend for my buddy's mill with mine. The maple is almost 20190808_195557.jpg 20190808_195606.jpg 40" at the butt and one of the white pines is good size too.

    I found a 441 in the used columns the other day (within my country), it was used and had a price tag that if I stood on my toes and begged for mercy I would still be far off.

    If I had a money tree in my back yard I would buy a 462, not a used 441.

    I was referencing Levi and his 461.
