I'd put my money on the 462 if the 461 is anything to go on

I ran my 572xp against my mates spud ported 372xp yesterday I have also ran 572 against 462 another mate has I am husqvarna through and through but the 462 is a great saw in all honesty they are all so close it's hard to call in my opinion the 462 is now more like a husqvarna than any stihl has been befor

The way it sounds it's cutting speed the way it feels in your hands
