    I just picked up my 460! I cant wait to use it but im off to work. Its wearing a 20" bar w/ a chisel chain. I figure i will pick up a 28" bar soon now that i have a saw that can handle one! Thank for the advice everyone!

    The guy at the shop said that if i would want to tune the carb i would have to bring it to the shop? He said that for some reason i would not be able to do it myself? Is this true?

    Should just take a small flathead screwdriver? Thats how mine is? Maybe for warranty reasons?

    Keep it "Four stroking" and its all good.

    Should have gotten a scrench, safety glasses, and a tuning screwdriver with the saw. They ship with every new saw.

    Jay's link is good but I like this one better. Absolutely no reason you can't DIY but if you're not comfortable with it then having the dealer do it is probably for the best.



    Big mofo of a motor makes it real easy to hear what's going on.
