who out there makes the best felling dawgs for the 461? Was looking on eBay and there are to many to choose from. Also I was thinking about buying a (I think it’s called) handle guard for the 461 it covers the bottom of the saw. Any thoughts.

Bought the Piltz dogs and the alu handle guards for all my saws. Good quality.

Stihl factory dogs in either small or large are a very good product. I don't know what kind of trees you have in Ohio (except Buckeyes) but if you have rough bark trees then give Madsen's a call and get their falling dogs. Be careful of the dogs on ebay, I bought a set for my MS361 and they are garbage. Very soft, bendable steel. (I bought them for their purty orange color, what a mistake).

I had bought a cheap aluminum china set for another saw. I asked Bryce if these were cheap aluminum or steel. They are steel and sharp. $26 delivered, I’m very pleased.

Does anyone know the part # for the small/outer dog? I have a stock/inner dog and just want the matching outer dog for a MS461. I don't need the big outer (part #1128 664 0502).
