Is it worth holding out for the 462?

Recommended Posts

My 460 is coming up for replacement and im wondering if I should wait for the 462 or go ahead with a 461 which is a fantastic saw by all accounts.

 

or, do I just wait for the 550i at a price as yet unknown?

462 is already out isn't it?
It's in the catalogue.
The 500i will be in the same weight range but considerably more powerful.

The TS500i cut off saw retails at £1092 inc vat in the catalogue.
The ms462 with 25" bar is £1200 inc vat.
So that's the ball park.

You've got bars and chains I'd get a 461 unit only from Jones for £730.
