    Perfect motorcycle saw! Keep it full of mix & oil & you can fill the other side-bag & a backpack with wood!

    Stihl's price fixing and inability to have mail order parts delivered to my door was a big reason why I chose Husqvarna equipment instead.

    Now the prosumer and professional Husqvarna saws are essentially price fixed too. Husqvarna decided not to allow the knowledgeable Internet stores places I bought my saws and trimmers (Southwest Fastener, Bailey's, and Alamia) to sell them to me anymore. As a result, the prices of the Husqvarna equipment I'd want to buy went up 20%. Since my local dealer's suck - Dealer #1 - Never heard of that model (372xp). Dealer #2 - We'd have to special order those for you (bar nuts for a small mount Husky.) ... I won't be paying the premium.

    I like that bright orange. I'm color blind. No way I'll ever lose my orange Stihl in the woods. Now if I'd only remember to paint my wedges and other small gear....

    Thought I was the only one riding around with a saw in a saddle bag...

    Had the 020 in it a while back; had a timberjack lashed down on the rack last week.

    Ken, brings up an interesting point: are the color schemes chosen (were they) for reasons other than aesthetics. Hmmm.

    I shopped around for a 441 and went to five dealers. Three of them were exactly the same price, the highest. One was $50 less, and one was $75 less. Don't know what Stihl's official policy is, but I did find differences, all in the same city. Meaning that with the same bar and chain, the high was $800 and the low $730.
