Northwest Oregon: WTB Husky 395xp
« on: April 16, 2021, 03:29:12 PM »
I am between Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Coast.
The local servicing dealer is out of stock until July on Husqvarna 395xp saws. I'm looking for a dealer with one in stock ideally the "965 90 27-39    28" Bar 3/8" Pitch .050 gauge"

Why THAT particular saw @Cindi  ?

Would something else work just as good? For example, I have a 372XP Xtorque. It works exceedingly well with that setup.
Trying harder everyday.

I just typed up a detailed reply and when I hit preview the forum logged me out and discarded my response  :(

I'm setting up a chainsaw mill using a Logosol F2+. The logosol dealer recommend a 70cc saw as the minimum and a 90cc saw as the best for most users. 

I don't think my current saws are really up to the task. My beloved Husqvarna 50 special I purchased new in 1990 and has tacked jobs bigger that it should have had to and keeps on running. I also have a somewhat pre-abused and clearly re-repaired 365 X Torque that showed up "in lieu of payment" some years back, it's a cantankerous bitch to get started some days.

I read though many posts here and on the Web (till my eyes were hurting) on what saws folks are using and the performance when milling. The 395xp has more torque and is well suited for milling applications as compared to the higher RPM saws. The most popular saws are the Husky 390xp and Stihl 660 series 90cc class saws. Many users are happy with a good quality 70cc saw (like your 372 xp x-torq  @Tacotodd ) and the clone 660 saws from farmertec.

My conclusion was that a 90cc class saw is the sweet spot for cost vs. performance. The 572xp is tempting as it is only one pound heavier than my 50 special and with a 28" bar I wouldn't have to bend over so much when Bucking (I'm getting old). I would sell the old 365 in a heartbeat.

I'm too tired now to re-type the table of models with HP, RPM, Weight and Suggested prices again.
