576 auto tune ... My 560 is awsome my 372 is a good saw but...... But from what I've heard about the 576 and what my 560 is to go by I would go down the 576 route.

they are not really comparable, depends on the intended use.

I'd agree with that. If you'd have asked me a few weeks ago though I'd have said 372 all day long, but then tried a 560 and bought a 550 and both a leagues ahead of their predecessors in theway they deliver the power so I'd guess the 576 is going to be pretty awesome. Still think the 372 is a beast of a saw for big softwood thinnings though

actually just realised i confused the 576 with the 357, so ignore my comment, (not that anyone took any notice!) time for bed.

Re: Husky 372xp or 576xp ?

Im handcutting in the woods everyday and have used a 576 but i own a 372, hands down for met he 372 is a better saw, its lighter i can put a 24" on it and it handles it fine i also have a 15" for it which makes it and animal in a nice hardwod block!!! but thats just my opinion it just find the 576 really bulky, i also own a 560 xp
