    Nice saw but a little heavy
    I bought this saw when I retired my ms 440. Saw is noticably heavier than my 440 but has better power. It cuts great with the 25" bar but cannot handle the 32" bar with a yellow chain. The chain just stops dead on the log so I switched to a skip chain and was able to finish the job but I'm still not impressed with the power on the big bar. I think this saw should max out at 28" bar length. All that aside I still love the saw but I need a bigger saw for extra large wood.

    Just what I needed
    I got to use my new MS 461 for the first time this weekend; WOW; was I ever impressed. It went through a 30" oak tree in nothing flat. With the 36" bar I had everything I needed to fall and buck the tree with minimal effort. Love it.

    Great Little Saw for Firewood
    Was looking for a smaller saw to run with my 034 that I have had for 25+ years. Started looking and found this one. Plenty of power and lightweight too. Cut around 12 cords with this saw this year. My go to saw for bucking firewood. If this saw will last as long as my 034 I will never have too replace it. Love the M-Tronics. Saw fires up with in 3 pulls and no stalling. Great saw for firewood. No regrets for spending the money for this Stihl product.

    Bad to the bone.
    Working as a Stihl tech gives me the ability to test just about every saw out there. Having a small firewood business on the side has me cutting dozens of cords every year. After the first time I tried this saw I bought one and won't pick another up unless it needs testing. Perfect balance and feel along with buttery smooth engine thanks to the M-Tronics management system make this saw the ultimate firewood saw.

    Everything I was hoping for and more.
    Didn't know what to expect but when I took it to the cut block and put it into a oversize cedar and pinned it I was impressed. Lots of stump power, little to no vibration, and at the end of the day the weight difference makes for a more productive day. Stihl is on to something with this saw.

    Awesome Saw Better With Wrap Bar
    I still use my 660 but not as much as the 661. It has a stong powerband in the wood. The M-Tronic and great antivibe are big improvements over the legendary 660. The wrap handlebar makes it more versatile felling. Big, smooth power.

    Amazing Chainsaw! Great power to weight ratio.
    This is my most favorite Chainsaw to run by far. I'm so pleased with the power of this saw. It has low end torque that keeps it chugging in big wood. I run a 25" and a 36" bar and am amazed at how well it can pull a 36" chain through hardwood. This is a very well made chainsaw with strength without the weight. I have had no issues to date and predict it will be very reliable like my other Stihl chainsaws. The MS 461R is truly a woodsman's best friend. Oh yeah I almost forgot... This saw has good ... read more looks also. Great job Stihl!!!!

    Outstanding saw
    This is a very reliable model and a beast of a chainsaw. I used almost every day, it's very easy to handle and has been easy on my body. Very easy to start and maintain, best of all it cuts through everything I throw at it with ease. This saw is probably overkill for the average user but a must for those who need a heavy duty reliable saw on a daily basis.

    The MS 461R Extremely Powerful,well designed STIHL POWERHOUSE!
    I've had my MS461R Stihl for a little over six months. I purchased mine with a 32" bar and Full Skip chain. It's hard to explain how amazing this saw is unless you try one out. I cut large Red Oak the day I brought it home and it ate through the tree like a Nuclear Beaver! The 461 is well balanced,easy to maintain, and relatively easy on fuel. The more you use the saw, the better it gets! I highly recommend the 461R to anyone needing a mid-sized Professional saw with amazing cutting power. ... read more OUTSTANDING Engineering from STIHL!

    My 1st Stihl Chainsaw Purchase
    Rode the McCulloch chainsaw for 25'ish years before she gave-up the ghost so a new purchase was in-order. Met with and talked to several people plus a little research on-line and ended up at a local Stihl Dealer. A representative from Stihl was actually there and we discussed my needs and expectations. I had them write it up and i took it home. I am totally amazed at the MS261. The power, simplicity and the overall user experience has been exceptional; Kudos !!!

    Excellent power to weight ratio
    After reviewing all the saw features, I decided on the MS261CM. It came with the 18" bar and the green label "Anti-Kickback" chain. So, for the occasional user looking for professional quality, safety and great power to weight ratio, This is throne!

    Great replacement for my old Wood Boss 028
    My last Stihl lasted 25 years and it was a difficult task to pick out a new saw. I choose the 261 and I could not be more pleased. Starts right up with plenty of power. Good nimble saw that preforms as expected.

    Balance perfected
    I'm about 6 cords of wood into this saw and nearly 2 acres of woodlands cleanup. My favorite part of that statement is I'm only 3 weeks into owning this saw and still keep up with a demanding full-time job developing software. That alone speaks volumes for the 261. I'm not a pro arborist and don't have a ton of time to just be out in the woods. So, read between the lines a little further and I'm saying the 261's weight & power balance allows this amateur to get a lot of work done in a short ... read more amount of time. One Saturday a buddy of mine brought his 362 CM over and it seemed like the 261 was barely a fraction slower. Of course, on paper, we are only talking about a 9 cc difference, but I was surprised the real world difference wasn't more noticeable. I have heard the 261 works like a 60 cc saw even though it is only 50. After keeping pace with my buddy's 362 (also a freshly broken-in saw) I think I can buy that statement.
