    Gotta compare apples to apples Dave.
    That's all I'm saying. Be real.

    Quoted just so it doesn't disappear, might be worthy of someone putting it in their signature.
    I see you already added the part about the 395's :aaaaa:.

    I am a realist. But I will still be running my Stihl saws.

    It's unrealistic to think that a saw can not be as fast just because it's 3 cc smaller.

    Don't get me wrong tho I'm not getting rid of this 661 anytime soon. It'll run a 32" on it cause its light bit 36+ " work will stay with the 395

    Very true, but that's never the case when they compare a 372 to a 460/461:couch:.
    To the point of Steves original post comparing the 462 and the 7910, I like to also look at the overall actual value. For the same price or less I could have a ported 7910, then which one would be out ahead. Oh yeah then it would weigh to much to compare, it's always something.
    I do hope the 462 is a great saw, as light as it is it could be a real winner.

    If you want a ported 7910, then get one.

    Who you talking to, I know you know how to quote a post, I just saw you do it.
    It seems to be a stihl thing, you and Mike always do that lol.
    Don't be afraid, some of the fastest stihls have husky pistons :D.
    Me too, that's why I have a bunch of small stihls, they are great just don't tell anyone I said that.

    They are certainly a nice saw. I ran a ported Dolkita 6100 recently. Was fast, smooth and strong.

    Me too :beer-toast1:.
    I think everyone should have at least one or more 7900/7910.

    Wasn’t it “too heavy”?
