    Stopped in at the John Deere/Stihl dealer yesterday for the first time in months. Hoped to see the latest. Salesman said he hadn’t heard of a 462. Had to look it up. He said the fuel injected ones hadn’t come in yet. I said that ‘that’ is a different model. He looked ‘it’ up and said “sometime next year”.

    You want a 462?
    I'm sure someone on here will sell you one.
    My local stihl dealer and
    Bridgeport equipment and also rural king has them if there's any out your way. 20191105_153247.jpg

    Our old JD dealer is the same way. The dealer I have switched to is an Ag and Equipment dealer so they carry pro grade saws for the loggers that buy the skidders and other logging equipment. They have had the 462 and I haven’t asked about the 500i.

    My JD only has up to a 391. They might have an 880 abrasive saw (it looked big).

    I can get one for about $1050 delivered with bar and chain. Or, $1050 delivered with wrap and big clutch cover PHO.

    Some dealers aren't worth walking across the street. Local Husky dealer - 572xp would be my next stop.

    Took these the other day, "Steal" sure is proud of their products and reflects that on their pricing.

    Conversion rate on the MS462 price tag, 1260.60USD :

    That day I left with two Stihl chain boxes and two Stihl 5.5mm round files.
    A day later I placed an order for some small items and left with a Stihl flat file.

    My valet is too thin to afford Steal saws, I'll stick with Dolmar -I should have enough to last me my life time.

    I bought my new 7301 with heat for about half the cost of a 462 in your country. :icon_popcorn:

    Remove the SLR/CAT out of a PS-7310/EA7301 and I think it may outrun a MS462 stock for stock MM only.

    Ported?
    Sondre and You may have the answer. ;)

    It’s as strong as a muffler modded 572xp in stock form. The 572xp and 462 cut about the same speed stock. Performance definitely isn’t a reason to pick the 462 over the other two. Of course we know there is more to a saw than just cutting fast. Personal preference comes into play as well.
