How big are we talking?

Like 390,395, 3120? Or just 395, 3120?

What's happening, are they not going to carry/produce saws in those sizes anymore?

word is 390, 395 and 3120 are gone , epa has cause husky to quit building them, no word of any kind on the 572 either , when asked they just say its a long ways off so I would take that answer as donot hold your breathe on this saw coming to a dealer near you any time soon , Now I can only hope but maybe we will get a new bigger saw to replace the 395/3120 as there are lots of guys that need these bigger saws

Ah come on Ed; get your facts straight before you post crap like this. :-[  Why not just yell FIRE! in the movie theater?

Sorry to interupt your fun with the truth but.............

These saws are NOT going away. Husky is merely getting rid of some SKU's and some variants of these models are going away. Only the 390 and 395 "G" and "W" versions are getting the axe, so it's "while supplies last" on these models. "Supplies" are about a dozen each on the G's and 40 some each on the W's in the Troy warehouse. I actually got hold of a close out list and tried to buy them all in fact. But the $200 discount that got me all excited turned out to be a "mistake" so that deal went out the window. They will be sold off at regular prices.

The regular 390 and 395 will absolutely remain until they are replaced, and no, I'm not going into any detail there.  :)

A few others to get axed: 562XPGW, of which I only sold one. There were 60+ variations to order 562's and they trimmed it down a bit. I'm pretty sure all non-AT versions of the 576 are history as well as the 455AT. The typical rancher customer wouldn't pony up the extra cash for the AT version. Obviously we'll never see the 465AT either.

So, before this silly thread get's out of hand; that's the story.  8)

Thanks Spike  :)

I gotta admit, even though I've never bought a new saw, I would be a bit miffed if husky quit producing some of there best saws.
But then that just doesn't make sense. Unless they were replaced with newer models.

The Canadian web site lists the 576XP as the largest model available. Seems Stihl has the only saws over 80cc, their days may be numbered too over sales and emissions regulations.

I got a 661 on my radar too. My 395 still has alot  of hours  left in her but it's 394/395 design is almost a quarter of a century old...side tensioner and all.

The 066/660 design is  as old but at least Stihl updated it with the  661

Well, Ed they are still here, PERIOD.

At least 50 of each in Troy ready to ship. (if by some chance you are right, they'll be in my warehouse shortly. LOL) Don't know where you are getting your info, but you are seriously off target. What you are encountering up in Canada might simply be an out-of-stock situation. This can happen at any time with any model.

As I said, this is just a SKU reduction of model variations that have low sales numbers.

 I made a post but someone took it down I guess, Spike they are gone , I got 2 husky dealers beside me that are very upset at this move and both have even phoned Echo to come on board with them, there are no 395's in the warehouse and very few 390's , our husky website has the 390, 395, 3120 gone from it and that happened a while ago , I was just at the one husky dealer this morning when they phoned Husky to see what is going on, husky would not tell them anything other than in Canada these saws are history and would not say if husky was being in a new saws to fill the hole left by these saws , epa is the reason as these are old designs and are dirty saws compared to the new designs but husky has not said anything about building a new design like what Stihl is doing , the 661 seems like a nice saw Pete has just over 100 tanks threw it at this point but I prefer to run husky as they are nicer on my hands as I get white finger fast . I honestly hope I'm wrong but I know I'm not , Just look at how long its been sense we were to see this new 572 and now the techs are saying not going to happen for a very long time if ever

Spike , I'm not trying to cause any trouble just trying to tell people what I was told and who told , we knew the 395 was history a while ago so most dealers stocked up on them as they sell more here than the 372's or 390's , Will they do the same thing they did with the 372 when it was to be gone and everyone rushed to buy every 372 there was then they built a ton more of them and did this 3 or 4 times I cannot say and I would honestly think this is the plan but no one is telling any of the dealers that this is the case

Ed, I can't comment on what may be going on up there; it may be a completely different story. And I suspect that is the core of our disagreement here. (nothing personal at all between us in my mind). Not sure what your sources are, or what "our" website means. If it's the consumer website, they are always a joke. I think the 346 is still on our consumer site down here.  :D  Have either of those dealers made a call to someone in the know, or are they drawing their own conclusions on this?

Anyway I just got off the phone with a "higher up" and everything that I've posted above is completely correct, at least for the US. It's all a matter of under performing SKU's getting cut from the team. I do know that the few 390 or 395 G's I sell always have an older build date than the regular saws and that gives an indication of how they tend to sit around. The G's and W's combined are a small fraction of the sales mix of any of these models. The only one that really means anything to me is the 562XPG, (not the XPGW), because I sell 6-10 of them a year. The wraps don't sell very well either. They only sell here in the enthusiast community because they look cool, but in the everyday world, they are not popular at all.

The "572" is definitely going to arrive in the future. Be a while yet, but it's not a case of it being late or having issues. When they have fully completed the development program, it will arrive. This talk of it being delayed is only because word leaked out and guys started a clock on something that nobody was supposed to know about in the first place.
