When is the end if the 365/372xp platform?
« on: April 05, 2018, 06:47:04 PM »
Alright, I know none if us want to face the reality, but I've heard rumors that husky is stopping production on the 365/372xp saws and probably other non computer saws within the next 2 years. Does anyone know if it's true that it's so soon? Im sure eventually they will work all the bugs out of the computer saws, but for the moment the 365 I have does everything that I want and more from that class of saw and always starts within 2-3 pulls anywhere from -20 f to 100 degrees. I want my saws to last me the next 20-30 years before there's nothing left to rebuild and I know this chassis is capable of that. I guess I'm asking how soon I'll have to pony up the coin for a new 372xp and 395xp to back up the 2016 365 and 1996 394xp that I currently run.

Oh man I'm jealous! Sounds like you're quite a bit more prepared than myself, if I had seen some of the changes in saws coming I might not have sold off some older ones I had either..

Is there talk of replacing the 395 soon? Iím not too worried about the 372 cause Iím cutting less and less small stuff by hand and I believe the 572 will be a good saw. But I really like the 395 for big wood may have to buy another this summer lol

Nothing positive yet just speculation from my dealer, said that the 572 will phase the 365/372 out shortly and the 395 is probably not long for this world either, atleast how we know it.

If I had to bet both the 390 and the 395 replacements are out here for testing just like the 572 was for a few years I remember seeing a local faller had a prototype.

You could argue the 372 ended in 2010.. :o I guess my understanding is the X-torq derivative ( 372 XTD's ??   ::) ) will linger for a while. The 576 will go away faster. A shame as I liked those saws. Just they never were a "Hit" in the market. Probably hurt by the 575 lineage and part by the weight? I don't know but I like them..

Call me weird, but I don't really mind the x-torq ones. I used to work at a trucking/excavation company that had a pile of the original 372xp's for the shop/do all saws and that's what really turned me on to the model, so I bought a 365 x-torq in 2016 and I can't say it's ever let me down. The thing blew every other saw I've owned out of the water, can't really think of anything negative to say besides maybe the fact it doesn't have the super cool high top filter like my 394xp lol  8)

Nothing wrong with being an X-torq fan...:) LOL Folks like Ford Pickup's too right?

All fun aside they evolved into a solid saw over time...but they aren't truly 371/372's as originally designed, they blended a different "X-torq" top end and all the stuff required to make it fit onto the 372 chassis. (Cases and Tank handle) Sometimes wonder if a "bottom up" saw with that top end was conceived but never completed as they jumped to the 562/72 design. Just the way the transfers are, makes you wonder if another complete case design was in the works... You could make a case that the X-torq's would never have happened were it not for regulations...I guess a lot of other designs evolved as a result of that as well. I see the X-torqs as a transitional design from the non regulated designs like the "quad (transfer) port" saws like the first 371/372's, 346's and the current "500" generation of saws. They had to happen, filled a "hole" and requirement in the market place. My guess collectors in the out years will still prefer a good OE vs. the half step transition saws.  ::) LOL!

Sooner or later SOME one will jump in and correct all this BS...:)

BUT regardless of what and how, they are. And can be made to run quite well so yeah, why not? And my guess there will be a LOT of cheap parts saws around for the geeks like us to build...over the next few years.

I looked at two redmax saws a couple hrs ago. As I'm looking I'm thinkin 575. Guy that owns the place walks up. I said "your daddy was a Jonsered dealer at one time but I didn't think you kept Jonsered anymore". He said he didn't. I'm standin here looking at two of the new name Jonsered I told him. He told me that redmax like Jonsered is a division of Husqvarna now. He also said he had sold a dozen or so of the redmax Iwas looking at. Then he says to me" all that saw there is, is a 575 it's just red and black". Why would Husqvarna put effort into these redmax saws only to go completely to computer saws in lets say even the next five years. Doesn't seem like good business practice to me. My dumbass is thinking bout buying a redmax just so I can see what they are all about. Jeez, I haven't purchased a brand new saw since 2014. As popular as the 372 is phasing them out doesn't seem like good business either.

They are not phasing the 372 out, just to be getting rid of it, I would imagine they have no choice, and will bet that it will be alive for several years to come, just not in the US or even Canada.
