I'm looking at a new larger pro Stihl in the 70cc range. Something like an MS462. None of the local dealers carry one, or have warehouse stock on hand, and would need to order directly from Stihl. Something was mentioned about the home owners saws being made domestically, and easier to get, and pro saws made in Germany and more difficult to get. I ordered one anyway. So we'll wait and see.

I ordered a 462 for myself over a year ago (great saw !), and just ordered one for the shop a couple weeks ago. No issue on delivery in either case. I've seen them in Stihl dealerships too. Perhaps it because regional Stihl distributor, Bryan Equipment is nearby ?
The MS 400 CM looks like an interesting introduction and something to consider as well - MS 400
