More powerful Chainsaw-Help

Recommended Posts

Yes parts are readily available . They are well engineered saws and dont have any of the , some times temperamental, auto tune problems . Dolmar or Echo seem to be the way to go at the moment .

 

I couldn't agree more with Stubby.

Not sure on the dolmar but the echo has a good warranty with it to.

 

Ive always been a stihl/Husqvarna man but currently the small-midrange saws available by them don't cut the mustard or one reason or another and im tempted to jump ship to give both the above a try. :thumbup1::thumbup1:

I'm currently going through the same thoughts as you. I've got a husqvarna 440 and want to get a bigger saw. I've been thinking about a 365 but keep getting tempted by a 560.

365 is a nice saw, tried and tested design. Not too heavy, well balanced & dependable. You get a lot of saw for the money. Or the 560 if you want sparkle.

Hi

 

I have a 365 & its a good solid saw, pulls a 20" bar easily put a Sugi Hara on mine & the balance is great.

 

It can also be uprated to 372 like performance by grinding the restrictions in the transfer covers:biggrin:

 

Im sure a 560 would be great but Im a bit hesitant regarding auto-tune.

Another Vote for the 365 here

 

Mines on a 24" sugi bar, a pleasure to use.

 

Bargin really for the cost of them

 

Hi, Agreed, a lot of saw for the money.

 

Slight de-rail but it pulls a 24" OK then? - I mean it feels to me like it should be fine but never tried one & I think the same bar would go on a 390 should I ever move up to one.

Yes with a good chain its fine and in infact the 'goto' saw for ringing up. I think the 372 is rated to a 28" max, as you say, pretty much the same thing.

 

Best bang for buck you can get imo
