Re: husky 576xp, anyone used one ?

i have not used one the 575 got bad reports and thats why i brought a 372...peronaly i wished id saved my money as the 372 is a damn good saw but is very thirsty and the emisions are crap and the newer 576 is probably better

My dealer does not rate the 441, I have a 440 which is a great saw, but no longer available, so when it needs replacing I'll get a 446.
