Good to hear, that’s what I liked about my 9L.I really like the MS 193T, although I haven't used other top-handle saws, so I can't comment on comparisons. It's very light, easy to use one-handed, and has the power to shrug through some light bucking. Good for a walk through the woods or pruning.
Thank you, who knows, we both might have a 462 in the near future just for the hell of it.Congrats hambone! I just picked up one of last 461 at my local dealer too. I will admit after handling the 462 I almost changed my mind too, it sure is a lot lighter. I got mine with 25" bar but was advised by dealer that the 461 would have the edge over a 462 if I ever had the need for a longer bar.
I'm not knocking the 462 at all, it's a magnificent saw. However, I tend to play with my toys and feel a few years from now I'm sure the 461 will be ported and I'll have an easier time dialing a carb in.
