    Stihl MS462 vs Husqvarna 572xp

    anyone got an update on this upgrading a few saws for one of my teams and one on the block is the 441 never liked it to be honest 😂so after people have used them more would you go 462 or 572 I notice the 572 is out of stock everywhere I look yet I could have a 462 tomorrow is that a sign of the way things have gone next is the 261 open to opinions on that and third possibly the 661 again I value your opinion they will all be heated handle models not that that makes a difference to whats best just thought id mention it

    60cc saw class views on Heated Handles or not

    If i need an 880 taking up i now know who to call [emoji23][emoji23] 661 is enough to give the harness a good pull never purchased an 880 because would properly spend more time on the shelf than in use but yerh back to the huskys i was thinking how long do they take to heat up im the same with the extra weight dont mind if you can have a bit of extra comfort acording to husky its about point 8 of a kg difference so its nothing realy an if there still going strong after 2 years plus then it answers my question regarding longterm reliability

    Thanks for your insight realy apprechiate it im forever cleaning my saws and servicing them so i would make sure the switch was clean and that does sound like a interesting studdy and when you think about it it makes alot of sense

    Ah so they are quite problematic then how mutch is expensive if you dont mind me asking is there a specific common fault on them thats what i was thinking winter and rainy days it would be nice

    I think thats made my mind up then i belive its an extra £ 80 and fair enough i look after my kit so it wouldnt be abused so sounds like it will last unlike my 540
