    lady at works husband passed away and she is selling all of his tools and i mentioned i'm in the market for a chainsaw

    she said she found a husky 272xd that was used once- i offered her $200.00 - do you think this is a fair deal as i can't seem to find anything about this saw

    Lets hope she misspoke and it is a 372XP. You are golden with that price for that saw.

    If you don't want it, and it is a 372XP I'll take it off your hands :)

    It probably is the little known 272XP. A 72cc saw that weighs in at around 13.5 pounds. It ought to be one hell of a saw for $200. I don't know what the deal is with the 272XP. I know they exist and are supposedly still made but Husky does not have anything about them on the U.S. site. There are 272XP's and 272XPG's out there in the wild somewhere.

    if it runs right it is still a really great saw to have on the side for the very largest of logs you come across.

    Photos please! I've never seen this one before, it would help me and maybe some of the others in identifying one down the road. Plus, we all like a little chainsaw p0rn!

    you friggin stole that saw! wanna make some money on it? LOL those were great saws,good score.

    just a recommendation.if you're going to keep it. i'd replace the fue and impulse lines,fuel filter and rebuild the carb if you don't want to blow it up.saws don't like to sit for a long time.it's not worth anything seized.

    Hi hornett,

    Never noticed anything like that on my Husky 359. Always starts on first or second pull. Even after sitting with half a tank of gas all winter.

    So what happened to you?
