Your welcome.
Notice the one piece top cover,  like the smaller Stihls  have (not sure off hand  about the 661)
With that Husqvarna  style one piece cover it should have air injection

I was wondering when I first saw the type cover if you had to unscrew. But seeing fast attach half turn made me think cool.

Looks  like a well  thought out design.
Look at the size of the muffler outlet :o

One more


I don't really care for the captive nuts, but no big deal (they are on my 560xpg).

Of course a 462 was expected pretty soon, as I don't really think the 461 fixed the AV problem of the 460, looked more like a "stop-gap" model - but I am surpriced if the 462 doesn't have AT when it hits the market?

I am glad there is no mtronic on there. I am glad to see that they will still make an adjustable carb pro saw. The stihl m tronic program is not as cheap as the husky at stuff.  Seems to me that  husky must have a good design for stihl to model after them. I just realized the other day that I don't have any current production saws any more.

I'm glad its got a carb you can adjust , the best auto tune saw out there that I/we around here stock would run is the 661 and its not perfect . All other auto tune saws need to be modded for me to run, Biggest problem is not the cold , its when your cutting in hot weather with high humidy the autotune saws all run way to rich or get to the point they just donot want to run . When that happens with a carb you just set the jets
