i have ran sthils and the 365 is better
i started cutting wood with a 034 sthil and loved it but it was old and layed down on me. so we repalced it with ms 310 which the sthil dealer recomender and it was like cutting with a toy. so i was looking to up grade and looked at bigger sthils and hus. and hus. dealer recomender the 365. i desided to give them a try and am very happy was this saw it does ever thing i ve asked of it. when i ask a saw to work. i work it to date the biggest tree the 365 has took down is a 42 inch red oak and it done a better job at it than my old sthil and the new one by far. this is a great product. if you are thinking about this saw you will not go wrong on this one and the hus. dealer was great to me to.

Best way to compare!
I do production line clearence tree work and am always around other people that feel there saw is the best (namely stihl) well i decided to get them to put there money where there mouth is so to speak and challenged them against my stock 365.. well i ended up racing against some stihls that were around the same equivilent displacement group and beat them all.. then as my head swelled i challenged some people with bigger stihls and also dolmars... well i beat them all too!! the biggest one i beat was a stihl 44mag which i've been told is rated at approx. 88cc... btw.. i had a 24"bar on the 365 also.. So thats on the Power and Performance part... The Durability i feel goes with the Value.. when your mulching brush/cutting brush, and cutting trees down 40-50+hrs a week for 9 years and your still have not had anything break or go bad with your saw.. the value IS the durability!!

I recently traded my stihl ms210 for a 365xp i an very satisfied with the trade. they are not realy comparable models as far as size but a good trade off. The size to weight ratio is really nice and pletty of power great saw see how it handles the abuse over the years as this is my first husqvarna
