372 IMO.

 

It was supposed to be replaced by the 575 about 5 years ago. That was rubbish so they launched the 576. Strangely the 372 is still available.

 

Says enough for me, Husky still have not got the confidence to scrap it.

The 372xp is a good saw and well balanced with a 20"bar, it can be moded to the moon and back. I've got experience in this as i've owned 5! The 576xp is a good saw also. I've hammered it for a year with no probs at all. I would say that the 576xp has better anti vibe and bit more grunt as last week i got caught out and ran my 576 with a 36"bar in beech and i was actually suprised at how well it did... I wouldn't go for the auto tune version, but thats just my preference. The MS441, i've had a couple of these aswell, and moded them for people. These are well put together but they dont have the performance of a husky.

The 372 is a fantastic saw. I'd have a 576 which is an amazing saw. A friend fo mine got it and i borrowed it for a weeks felling. With the 24" bar on it was slightly nose heavy but still had the power to use it. 20" was a great balance and 18 was engine heavy but it flew through the wood.

 

The 372 is knackered and will be replaced with a 576 when there are some XPG versions with auto tune in the country.

As mr brush cutter says , I would go for the 576 wish I always had after getting the 372 ... As that replaced the 575 at the same time wich was apparently pants, the 576 though had a brief go on one and felt smoother and what felt a better saw.
