Sthil 462 or Husky 572

Recommended Posts

Hi all

am after people’s thoughts between these two saws as we are looking for a mid range saw that will cope with a 24-28 inch bar nicely but isn’t to heavy but is reliable and wondered what people think between 462 or 572 ?

Spin a coin mate, they are both excellent saws in my opinion.

@MattyF may have used both recently,  he’d be better put for an answer.

 

Personal preference I think.

Neither. Go 500i
Better with a 28” than both those.
200 grams difference between a 462 and 500i

Already have a 500i and had issues with it only just back from sthil after 6 weeks and only 29 hours on it.

462 hands down beats the 572. Stihl is lighter, spools up quicker and holds on better full bar in the cut.

I’ve had my 462 for 2 years now and not a single problem. 572 is a nice saw but just feels really heavy

What issues?

Pistol went and sthil then didn’t know why and rebuilt it then it wouldn’t start. Took best part of 8 weeks to get fixed under warranty.

That’s what I felt when we handle both saws the other day but it is ment to be only .6kg lighter but feels more.

What fuel do you use?
That’s very strange to lose a piston at 29 hours.
Just bedding in.
