Upon further thought/research, I was a bit hasty... I'd like to run a Husqy 28-32" bar (need to look at some trees). Not much over $500. Going to be firewooding a bunch of this stuff : If you're not familiar with Salt Cedar aka Tamarix, Tamarisk, it's considered a hardwood, and it's really wet. Seems to be hard on chain. Yahoo or Google searching on it is pretty interesting. Thanks for all your friendly pro opinions  :)

The 372xp is rated to run a bar this size and you can pick one up a new one from Bailey's, one of the sponsors to the left, for just over 500 bucks. They are up in Laytonville so you should probably be able to get one within two days. If I order from them before 3:30 in the afternoon, I always get mystuff the next morning around 10:30. Also I would run a full skip chain if your cutting firewood.

THANX...that's pretty much the direction I was heading. Anyone else?

28-32" sound right for my kind of stuff (tree removal)? Don't want to be hauling/skidding big stuff around, so I'll be doing a lot of firewood cutting-where-it-falls.

Think ahead...it isn't price that makes sale...it is service after the sale. But local, think global.

Cause when saw breaks global may have moved on but local lives there & maybe their children attend school with your children.

I did think ahead  :) The only saw dealer near me is an hour away...and it's Husky. Maybe you didn't notice how much trouble I had finding Jonsy parts...not going thru that again!  ;) There isn't really any local as far as saws go...closest to local I have is here... ;D


PS I'm gonna bring this up again...372 vs 575? I'm leaning 372.
I'm old fashioned, hate EPA crap, want easier to tune saw. Input? Or you guys tired of of hashing it?

Floyd, I couldn't agree with you more, supporting the local businesses is what keeps our local economy strong. I often pay more for things locally because the service is usually better. However,  Bailey's has always provided me with exceptional service and I feel that I need to recommend them. They have got me out of a jamb more than once, whereas, I needed something and they had it to me by the next morning. On the other hand I have wasted the better half of the day searching for something local that I could have just ordered from my friends in Laytonville. Although I am keeping my business in Nor Cal so maybe this is local.

either way, if you buy a new saw in California, it will come equipt with all of that emmisions crap. This worried me at first when they  changed the standards for small engines here, but honestly I feel no difference in how the saws perform. 372 vs 575? ask you're dealer the difference, if he does'nt know, find a new dealer.

Solodan,  N cali is "local" to you & bailey's is a good business.  I could not purchase a relaskop locally yrs ago. But I can purchase a saw locally.

To me, & apparently, you.  An hour is considered local.

Dan, you really want to haul a 585 around?
372 is around 22# with 32"bar. 585 is?

Floyd, I think you meant David B.
you know I was gonna mention the weight thing as well.
I like running the smallest saw for the job because of the weight.
I have a 3120 that I actually use quite a bit, but after a few hours of work with this saw  I  am ready for a nap. I think a mid size saw works best for firewood, as in David B's case. If I could only have one saw I think it would be my 268.

Going to be tough finding a used 575 as they are a brand new model. Too heavy for the power available anyway. I would pass and look for a good used 385. The extra power makes the weight more worthwhile.
