Post: The STIHL MS 462 – designed for professionals, tested to the limit

The STIHL MS 462 is a 70cc professional-grade chainsaw that has been tested in the wilderness of Alaska and the Alpine forests. This machine is specially designed for harvesting thick wood and commercial felling and pruning.

Despite being a robust beast of a cutting machine, this is the lightest high-performance chainsaw in the 70 cm³ cubic capacity class. With saw bar and 20″ saw chain, it weighs in at 7,4 kg, yet there’s no compromise on delivery and it offers an impressive power to weight ratio of around 1.4 kg/kw.

The MS 462 features an improved HD 2 filter and oil pump system, a lighter, more compact chain sprocket cover and crankcase, and a weight-optimised flywheel. The 2-MIX engine is light on fuel and contributes to the significantly improved torque build up, making this hardworking model an excellent example of getting more for your money. It is also simple to maintain. Other positives include captive nuts on the sprocket cover which make it easy to change the chain, and tool-free fuel caps for easy and safe filling with fuels and lubricants.

The MS 462 is easy to handle and manoeuvre, with improved ergonomics and reduced vibration for less operator fatigue – vital when all-day cutting is required. Designed for felling and pruning in medium-density and high-density stands, the MS 462 is an outstanding chainsaw from the world’s leading chainsaw brand.
