I'm looking at a 272XP and an older 268 a man has. Both are in very good cosmetic and great running condition. This thread has answered questions I was going to start in my own thread about strengths of these models. My question is what price range should I be looking at on these? I know it's very subjective but I just need some kind of starting point. The 272XP for instance, shows signs of use but not abuse so is not quite as nice as HT's in his above post. The 268 has a 1 inch square of plastic knocked out on the pull start cover and is the only cosmetic damage to that saw. Thanks for any input.

I ran the 266xp 268xp and the 272xp for around 12 years I bet I owned 10-15 of those models over the years they were a great saw the mounts wouldn't take a lot of abuse but that's the only weak point in the whole saw ive also had the 630 and 670 jonsereds and they were just as good as the huskys

First saw I ever bought was a well used 272xp. Loved that series of saws. You can swap parts from many different models.

I wonder if one could be bought in Brazil and shipped here?
I recognize that it's 2019... but I'm living in Brasil wondering which Husqvarna I should buy; the 272 or 372. (Buying to put on a 24" Alaskan Mill). Not Cheap: the 372 (new in the box) is about $700 USD. The 272 (new in the box) is $600 USD. Funny how things are... I probably could ship it to you for another $400 USD -- AND NO I'm NOT a commercial entity wanting to actually do this, I just thought super cool that I am experiencing this 5 year old thread from this perspective and thought you might find it cool too, i.e. yup they're still making them down here and probably not worth it, unless you got a spare grand socked away for just such a thing.

If the price matters a lot you can buy a used chainsaw.

I had my 272 hopped up.  The local saw shop ports the muffler, ports the cylinder and advances the timing and tunes to AV gas.  One of my favorite saws to run.
