    Looking into getting a more powerful saw as my 455 Rancher just isn't quite powerful enough for my needs. I'm cutting about 8-10 cord a year (I cut with a few friends) with the saw but I do have some issues with my 455 on bigger logs. The 455 just seems to drag down on bigger stuff and it would be nice to have a bigger more powerful saw in these cases.

    What are people's experience with the Jonsared versus Husky?

    Husqvarna owns both companies and are basically the same saws.

    Look into Husqvarnas:

    359
    357xp
    365
    372XP

    These are great high grade firewood chainsaws.

    The 455 is a heavier homeowner-lower power chainsaw budget priced.

    Then look into

    570
    575XP

    *************************************

    compare 570 vs 365 ******************************

    365
    Cylinder displacement 4.0 cu.inch / 65.1 cm³
    Power 4.6 hp / 3.4 kW
    Maximum recommended engine speed 12 500 mm
    Fuel tank volume 1.62 US pint / 0.7
    Oil tank volume 0.84 US pint / 0.40l
    Oil pump type adjustable flow
    Chain pitch 3/8"
    Recommended bar length 15-28" / 38-70 cm
    Sound level 102.5 dB(A)
    Noise emissions, LWA 114 dB(A)
    Vibrations, front/rear handle 3.6 m/s² / 3.5 m/s²
    Weight 13.0 lb

    ****VS***

    570

    Cylinder displacement 4.14 cu.inch / 67.9 cm³
    Power 4.9 hp / 3.6 kW
    Maximum recommended engine speed 13 600 mm
    Fuel tank volume 1.48 US pint / 0.7l
    Oil tank volume 0.78 US pint / 0.37l
    Oil pump type adjustable flow
    Weight excl. cutting equipment 14.9 lbs

    The Husqvarna 365 is only 0.3 hp less but is almost 2 lbs lighter than the 570

    The 372XP is a great saw but it's been discontinued.

    Budget wise I'm looking at less than $600 but would like to get the most saw for my dollar. This is the last saw I want to buy for about 5-7 years.

    I'd like to stay somewhere near the 4 Cu. Inch range for power and I'd like to keep with a 24" bar.

    Good info, thanks Roo.

    I'll have to look into the 372XP you posted. I thought they had been discontinued.

    Its a good choice of saws , I also have the 372XP and when you take this bad boy out to the woods all the tree see it and just give up and fall down. ;-)

    You can search 372XP Yahoo or Google and there is a few on line sellers still selling this saw. I just happened to post one of my favorite online saw seller. (and at good price)

    Going from the 455 to the 372xp would be enough to make a grown man cry over the difference in power.

    Good luck , be safe and make sure to have your P.P.E. (Personal Protection Equipment.)

    If you'r cutting around 10 cord a year or more than a 365 or 372 is the way to go. At work we run 372s and 575s and we all like the 372s a lot better. Were trying to buy as many 372s before you cant get them any more.
    Dont forget you'r PPE and let us know how you make out.
