    Okay, so I didn't just not see "xt" somewhere in a dream then! Pardon my ignorance, but what is strato. I seen it before but really do not know what it stands for. Is it modified like my old 68 Dodge Dart with a 426 hemi and 671 Detroit blower? Ran hight 8's- low 9's at the track.

    Thanks for the links...some good stuff in there.

    How in the heck did you get a hemi in a Dart? The headers must have been a nightmare. At least the spark plugs would have been accessible.
    However, I would love to have a 372XP.

    strato is basically the new low emission technology. There used to be a nice link to video showing the combustion cycle of the strato 441 on stihl's website.

    Okay Bruce ,here's the deal ..... You are already lost to CAD . You have 2 saws , yet You want something "just a bit better " :) Go down and look at the the Stihl Ms 261 , or Husqvarna 562 xp ,or the 555 . It'll cure the itch for a while . :) You'll also have a very capable saw !

    Nope, no itch....it's a freekin' rash:)
    Let me explore this one first. I am startin' to salivate....just a little.
    There is this cool dealer not to far from me in Milford N.H. They have 2 walls of saws. The huskys and the Stihls. Plenty of touchy feely;)

    Ok, back to readin'

    Bacffin..dont buy a bigger saw..lol ;lol Ounce you start down the path of bigger cc's saw's its to late and no returning..You'll love the power and speed of
    a big saw. Then they'll be ported muffler mod's with square tooth chain it never ends !! You'll have 5 -7 chainsaw's like the rest of us, so i say GO FOR IT!
    Get the 372xp ! One of husqvarna's best saw's ever made;) You wont want another till you try out the 395xp

    Embrace the rash ! Think of saying things like this to your wife " I really needed an Ms 880 to clear up this mess ,and heat our home . But I found this saw ( fill in the blank ) that's a lot less money and might do the job . It also doesn't hurt to add ....... " say Hon , have You lost weight ? You're looking really good ! How about We go out for dinner ? " :) It works some times :)

    Have to agree ,the 372 is a classic . Don't think anyone would go wrong buying one. I do favor My 390 xp more though . Hey,Bacffin , have We done a good job of spending Your $$$$$$ yet ?

    I am a Stihl guy (the 036 was my 1st and it converted me) but they had to pry my Last Husqvarna from my hands!!!

    The 372xp would be welcome in my stable, anyday.....

    Here is a pic of when I started. Remember. CAD happens FAST!! This was only last Summer!!! Now its all Stihl.

    There is no cure for CAD. Don't fight it--feed it.

    Luke, you must learn to curb you're emotions... Or forever will you go down the path of the dark side.
