I'm a die-hard Stihl man, but since I bought that used Husqvarna 372XP, I think I'm having a slight emotional affair with it. That little saw is an animal, I can't believe the punch it packs for a 72cc saw. And only weighing 13lbs (powerhead), it packs some serious chit.......Stihl, Husqvarna, Dolmar, Echo.....all make good saws, it really comes down to dealer support for most guys. Me, on the other hand?....I buy all my stuff used, so I get what I can, when I can, and fix it up to USE THE PI$$ out of it!!
