MaxFlow Air Filter for Stihl® MS 461, 460, 046 Chainsaws

$64.95 $59.95
(You save $5.00)
SKU: MF460

Product Description

High Flow, washable air filters for Professional Stihl® Chainsaws with the HD filter.  Models MS460, MS460R, 046HD, 046RHD, MS461.  Kit includes everything you need to convert your saw:  Two foam elements, (one green for standard cutting and one white for extreme cutting conditions), Maxflow cage, custom fit rain cover and nut plate for use without cover.

MaxFlow Filters are the ONLY aftermarket filters that are 100% USFS approved.  Don't risk being shut down on Forest Service property.  Reference the (MSE) SAG HS type A. 

MaxFlow air filters trap the smallest particles while flowing twice as long as stock air filters.  This helps your saw breath better during prolonged use in adverse conditions, resulting in smoother running and more power.  Unlike pleated filters, MaxFlow filter elements are washable and re-useable so they last longer and cost less.  Foam elements do require the use of foam filter oil (sold separately).

For 20 years MaxFlow filters have featured only ONE PIECE elements with no glued seams to fall apart.  No seams mean longer lasting elements with no chance for dirt to penetrate.  Don't be mislead by glued foam where gas and vibration causes the glue to fail.

MaxFlow filter kit replaces the HD2 or HD Stihl Pleated Air Filter P/N: 1124-120-1620 or 0000-120-1654

Replacement of the air filter on non HD filter equipped saws or STIHL saws with Fleece, Flocked or Screened Air Filters will require installation of the Stihl HD backing plate and other parts (not included).

Installation on the 461 may require some minor trimming of the rain cover.

  1. Outstanding product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2020

    Everyone knows that stock engines regardless of what they are powering need help breathing. The Max Flow Systems are the answer for that with saws. Better throttle response and and stronger pull when in the cut is immediately noticeable. Never took actual temps but the saw in hand feels to be running cooler as well. The improved particulate capture and filter life longevity within these systems is undeniable. Between the filters being larger and of better quality than stock units in addition to being oiled there's several parameters changed in the favor of your saw running stronger and for longer.
    Better yet, the company that produces this product is something that is rarely found in this county anymore; an honest one. I've purchased several of these systems separately and managed to select the wrong one once before. By just calling the number printed on the face of the orange cover I was able to correct this issue over the phone and with no hassle whatsoever. No generic phone answering system or talk in circles choices to make to a robot; just the owner and a solution in under 5 mins.

  2. Far Superior 5 Star Review

    The stock setup allows ~ 77 cfm. The HoleShot (That's the old school reference) flows ~ 135 cfm. That means bolt on performance.
    The filter element cover is pretty resilient also.
    The 80 micron element can be used in a burn application for an entire day - untouched. Try that with the stock HD element and see what you get....

  3. MUST HAVE! 5 Star Review

    Durable and well made product. My MaxFlow has been in use for three long years and still works great! MaxFlow filter allows the saw run and sound way better than stock. The owners are wonderful people that make great products!

    Nothing blocks the crap like a MaxFlow saw filter. . . Y'all should consider sending a bunch of them to Washington DC.

  6. Best Stihl Filters 5 Star Review

    I've been using MaxFlow/Holeshot filters on my Stihls for more than 20 years. They are a great value and one of the best simple after market add ons out there.

    What a difference this filter makes.
    Worth the 50 bucks!

  9. Adds more power 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2012

    A good mod on the intake side of things is this Maxflow filter system. It's a high flow foam element that is oiled with a real tacky filter oil, and the filters are washable, just put them in a mild solvent and re-oil them after they dry. It also comes with an over sized rain cover that lets in more air, it's an excellent system and adds power definetly.

  10. Added noticeable power 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2011

    I recently purchased this for my saw and it has given it a very noticable boost in power. The filter is easy to maintain, and very simple to setup. The only downside is the filter cover sticks out quite a bit more than the stock piece, but its not a big deal. Probably the best 50 bucks I've ever spent on any of my chainsaws.
