Kevin , there's probably a 1/2 lb of bar oil and sawdust on those saws you weighed.
Not including  the fuel and bar oil in the carb, oil pump and lines. :D

Something I've come across in my industry is that all the 5 series auto tune saws and even more so on the Stihl auto tune saws don't work well unless they are running flat out. Log home builders tend to do around 30-50% of their time at part throttle and the auto tune saws tend to seize within a month when run that way. I've heard from some of the firefighters that the smoke also screws up the auto tune saws. It makes sense that the otherwise older outdated model of 372 wouldn't still be around unless there was a demand the 576 couldn't fill.

I have more 372s come through my shop more than any other saw. That is because of the number of loggers I have for clients. The 576 comes at me from time to time. Great saws for a guy that pays his bills with a saw. You asked for experts... I shouldn't place myself in that category but I think the 372 would be my preference.
