Stihl ms462

Recommended Posts

So the 462 is close to being released I guess, found this Stihl video on YouTube but I've no idea what's being said. Anyone speak German?

I'm hoping they don't go fuel injected like the chop saw. I've heard they're a nightmare.

Just had a look at the video, and he was just blabbing on about the battery systems for most of it. Had a look on the German Stihl website, and it says that the new 462 with M-tronic is (at time of writing) the lightest in its class, of 70cc. Has a "motorgewicht" or engine weight (if I translate correctly) of just 6kg.

 

If I can get the boss to get one when it comes out, I'll let you know 😁

Thanks for the translation, I was hoping they may have said something a little more exciting but I guess they're gonna be playing their cards close being as Husqvarna are due to release their new saw.

Found on a German site. Looks like they've shed some weight and put a smaller engine in it?? Looks closer to a 441 in specs so imagine that'll be getting dropped from the range[ATTACH]221908[/ATTACH]
