HUSQVARNA 372 XP®
Bad out of the box
I bought a brand new 372xp and it had a bad crank bearing straight out of the box.Kind of left me wondering about the husqvarna quality assurance program.I returned it to my vendor and after about a week husqvarna agreed to replace it with a brand new saw.The new saw is a beast.The only negative is it floods easy.My 07 372 is still strong and i hope i have as much luck with the new saw.

great saw for felling and bucking hardwoods
I purchased this saw as my largest saw of my line up. I wanted a saw that could run a 24'' or28''bar with ease and this saw does just that. The build of the saw is great very robust. The saw is very well balanced and is a pleasure to use. I hope the few crank bearing failures I've read about have been just flukes or problems due to gas. I bought this saw to make sure I could get a saw without auto tune. I know the 550 562 and 576 are prob selling well but I like simple and for me when something messed up in the woods I like the fact I can throw a new carb on without programing ect. I also will say my dealer #Monroe Tractor in Monroe, NC# was great to work with and Tony H was very helpful. I look forward to dealing with them again.

This saw has been with me one month and it cuts great and goes all day, i am glad i spent my money however to day the ignition switch stopped working at only a month old which was very dissapointing, now i have to go and get it fixed I don't know why this happened,however it is very annoying.

Not like the older genration saw
I had a 372xp I purchased about 5 years ago and it was an excellent saw until it seized up after moderately heavy use. I purchased another 372xp in December of 2012 and immediately noticed a lack of power compared to the former saw. I brought it to a tech who has sold and serviced Husqvarna and Jonsered for many years to get tuned and did not like what he had to say. The new 372's have a different ignition system and the bearing are sealed in plastic which have a short life expectancy. He said that he has seen many saws come in with blown bearings after light use. I didn't think I would say this, but I may be turning into a Stihl operator in the near future. I am not impressed with Husqvarna's quality.

I recently made the switch from running all Stihl saws to Husqvarna and WOW am I happy I did! The balance and power of this 372xp with a 24" bar and full chisel chain is amazing compared to the Stihl saws of the same size, my guys love the performance of the saw especially in hardwood like oak and hard maple and this saw will out-cut the other brand hands down. The saw starts very eaisly when hot or cold, it is very well balanced and power to weight ratio is excelent as well. This saw is a true pleasure to use. I noticed that this saw and the other new Husqvarna saws that I have purchased are so much smoother running with much less viberation than the competition it is unreal! I would highly recommend this saw to any professional Arborist/logger without question. I recently let another one of my Arborist friends use this saw on a White Oak removal and he was blown away at the power, speed and low viberations he is now selling off his Stihl units to get several of these 372xp saws. I have also made the change from MS200T climbing saws over to the Husqvarna 338xpt and my climbers LOVE them!!

I have owned my 372 for 4 years. Excellent saw! I upgraded from a 365.
Only gripe I too have is the Allen screws loosening up.
Over all good starting saw and relyable

After 5 years of cutting 8 cord of hardwoods per year with a couple of homeowner type saws, I decided to upgrade to the 372xp, and am I glad I did, it makes cutting firewood more fun than ever, it is light and fast and goes through Hickory with ease. My only regret is that I didn't get one sooner. I run it with a 20" bar and it works great. The only problem I found were the screws vibrating loose, something the dealer should warn the costumer about.
