    My 372XP is an ANIMAL. For a 70cc saw, that sucker is a wood eating machine. I bought it used locally this past summer up the mountain, and I've been putting it through it's paces lately. I will be doing a muffler mod on it soon, and possibly a Woods-port down the road, but it is fine as is. Will run a 28" bar all day long like it's nothing.....

    You're gonna love that saw. And that's coming from a die-hard Stihl guy here!

    Sweet, I've got a mess to clean up, as well as helping family and friends. Some wood my smaller stihl will grown at. Been looking for a stronger saw, this is the one.

    One of the best saws they ever made,right up there with 288XP & 2100/01 CD/XP.Practically bulletproof,great power/weight ratio.

    Good saw, but I like the 372xpw better (slightly larger engine). Smooth, and easy to run. It gets points, and I am a StihlHead...

    372 is the Husq equivalent to the Stihl 441/460. Any 70 cc Saw should be a Joy to run (if it is in good shape with good compression).

    I'm sure your gonna be impressed ;)

    The 372xp is one of the very few non-Stihl saws I'd been seen with in public

    I bought mine 12 years ago, 4 to 6 cords a year, not yet broke in.
    Picked up a used 350 two years ago for limbing.
    I guess I am getting soft, in my old age.

    I need this saw for the weekend, and I dropped it off at the local saw shop I use to adjust the H/L screws and to have the idle adjusted a bit. Waiting for them to get their bars in, I ordered a 24", then she'll be bucking big oak, and lots if it.

    What else can I say except, I've run and owned a lot of saws and it's my favorite.

    I love my 359. It's been an absolute workhorse for a dozen years.. But... I bought a new 372 this spring.. and that little 359 hasn't gotten out of the shed much since. The 372 feels better in the hand.. and cuts like a beast.

    Actually did a couple hours bucking just this morning on a scroung with the 359.. and the whole time was thinking.. I miss my 372..

    You'll like the 372 it's a fantastic saw and I find I like the balance better than my MS440 but that is more personal preference than anything.
