372xp, 576xp, 390xp or 395xp?

I'll only use the saw for cutting big trees up to 120 cm diameter on the ground.

Depends on what you're going to be cutting mainly, but if you're looking to cut up yto 1.2m diameter with any sort of regularity, don't mess about and buy the 390 at least. Otherwise you'd only wish you had

357xp with a 15 inch bar and a 390xp with a 28 inch bar, although if I had plenty of BIG stuff all the time, id get 3120 and have done with it :-)

Re: 372xp, 576xp, 390xp or 395xp?

Hi. I am in the fortunate position to have as follows 3120 42in bar , 395 36in bar ,385 28in bar 372 24in bar 357 18in bar and 346 15in bar. sounds excessive but they all have a go from time to time. The only thing I would say is a 576 is about the same weight as a 385. the 385 makes more power soo it would be a 385/390 for me over a 576. The big ugly one was used yesterday on a massive mac in a church yard . Andy.
