    I picked up a new MS461 two days ago and all I can say is, wow!!
    She's a powerhouse. I ended up coming across one online listed for 979.00. It was an error. But, the company honored the price, so I couldn't pass it up. I cut a few loads of wood today and I'm impressed. I'll be cutting a bunch more Thursday. I do need to get a 20" bar/chain for it though. The 30" isn't something I need on a regular basis. Its what came with it though.

    Nice saw the 461 is my next saw . I plan to run a 20 on it as well and keep a 28 around for the bigger stuff.

    There is nothing I have cut, that slows the saw with a 24" bar. Keep the chain sharp and it will continue to impress.

    I also have a 32" bar, but only use it for special purposes, which turns out is not that common. Still it is nice to have, just incase.
