HUSQVARNA 372 XP®
Disappointed this time in a Husky saw
I own several Husky's and like them. So I figured I couldn't go wrong buying a new 372XP. I bought one from a local dealer over an hour away from my home. Driving down to pick it up the dealer called me to tell me the saw wouldn't start. He said they should have it fixed by the time I arrived. It wasn't running when I did get there. They were calling around other shops about another carb for it. That is not a way to impress me. I ended up going out to lunch waiting for them to fix it. They said there was some sealant in the jets. Apparently they have had this problem in the 372's. I did take the saw home to try out. I was disappointed to see after spending this kind of money there isn't even a fuel sight gauge on this saw. That shouldn't cost that much. Also why can't I get a scrench that will take off the back bar nut on this thing with a full wrap handle? Husky did put a good air filter on this unit. The saw is decently balanced with a 28" bar on it. The power is there also.

My last chain saw?
Purchased from Madsen's Shop & Supply in Centalia, WA 3 years ago, I have used it primarily for wood cutting and some falling. Its power and light weight make it the best saw I have owned. Madsen's has great support for all Husqvarna pro saws and is staffed with knowledgeable people. I found it easy to maintain with a good web site and manuals.

Great for medium sized trees
I purchased the 372xp because I wanted a saw for falling trees and bucking trunks. The saw works great for falling, as it can run longer bars from 32-36". I feel it lacks the power necessary to buck large trunks with bars from 24-32". It will however, in time, certainly get the job done. The 372xp felt bulkier and seemed to lack the cutting power of my 365's. It may have just been me, or the saw, but my friend who also has great experience with the 365 felt the same. The 372xp is a great saw for falling trees, and bucking medium sized hardwood and softwood with shorter bars (20"). As a one saw armory this may be the perfect saw. I sold this saw, bought a 346xp, and a 390xp.

This is the second Husqvarna saw I have owned since 1980 and although I have used saws made by other manufactures provided by employers I like the power and reliability of the Husqvarna the best. The compression release makes this saw easy to start any time of year and it is lighter than the competitions saws of the same hp and cu in.

I have a husky 51 that I bought back in 94. I needed another saw so I bought a stihl 390. I did not like it. Compared to the 51 it sucked gas and the power was not there. So after a few years of disappointment I was looking again. I choose the 372. So far only 1 issue. The engine was cold and when I went to start it flooded out. I have no idea why. After pulling the spark plug and pulling the cord to get the gas out of the chamber it started in 2 pulls. The 372 has all the power that I need and then some. So all in all I am pleased with this saw.

Plenty of power for the price!
I bought a 372xp a couple of years ago now...you cannot go wrong with this saw. I have a 20 & 28 inch bars for my saw. this model pulls the 28 inch chain easily, with plenty of power to spare. I really recomended the adjustable oiler, I really like the fact that you can put down not to little oil and not to much. The best advise that I can give anybody thinking of purchasing this saw is..." Just buy it, you cannot go wrong"!

Great move-up in saws
I moved from a 359 saw to this XP372 and it was everything I had hoped for in a new saw. I have some very large diameter trees that my old 20" bar could not cut. You can upgrade this saw to a 24", but the power is not there. I was cutting 40"+ diameter cherry trees (at the base) with ease.

Great saw. Would buy another one.
The 372 xp is a fast and strong saw. You can cut all day with it and it never gives any problems. Great for bulking, felling, and fire wood.
