Re: Husqvarna 372xp or 576xp

i know its been a while i didn't realise someone had asked a question sorry ben.

the saw is awesome can't fault it in anyway even up the tree its response is second to none glad i made the choice hope its not to late and you have bought something else.

gonna try out the 390xp next or the 395xp any thoughts everyone?

how can you compare that to a husky 372xp

yeah not to keen on the 441 either lorry but with you all the way on the 372xp..can't decide with the 390-395xp or i just might get a ms660

need to get the climbing saw sorted first though the 200t is slowly dying

Re: Husqvarna 372xp or 576xp

I'd forgotten how mint my 372 is again until yesterday. Been using it with the 7 tooth and 20" bar on for the last few weeks but the 353 threw a bit of a wobbler so the 372 got it's 15" and 8 tooth back on. Was a bit overkill for the 5-8" diameter Birch but it didn't half make me smile at how fast it was cutting
