Stihl ms 461 compared to 462

Recommended Posts

Recently found out from the other 044 cylinder thread, that it appears i have acquired a 10mm version 044, bought it off a guy for £60. It runs apparently but he just quoted it as “knackered” not done any testing or checks, just put it under bench with my others ready for when i get my garage finished. I’ve bought a shed load of genuine 046/460 bits but not acquired one yet. From all the reading up i’ve done and listenings to others, it comes across as being one of the all time good ens back in its day. The 461 appears to be more favoured against the 462. I like the older saws personally for their better feel and build quality compared to the newer stuff.

Yup, done a few 044s, a fair bit can be done including the ignition advance Wyk mentioned, had some good results. Solid saws, few issues with them tbh.
