    Well, I believe I'll keep the 460. For a new saw running a tad rich ,she's got a lot of power . I didn't have anything large to bury the bar in close at hand ,but what I was cutting was frozen . I did lean on it fairly hard,and it took a lot of force to get a significant rpm drop. Once broken in , I'm sure it will out perform the 044 and 372 by a good bit . Can't wait to see what it does with rs chain in clean wood .I'm also curious to see what it's like running an 8 pin once it gets a few more tanks fed to it.
    Only cut three bucket loads ,as I'm not 100% and that's when bad things happen .
    Pics to follow shortly ;)
