 I haven't had any problems with mine, i have learned that it starts easier if you put it on high idle each time you start it.The 357,359,562,576 385s all start better that way. I have to clean the clutch on the 562 every day too.

You should try a 576AT, then you wouldn't want the 372.

That actually is what most operator manuals say you should, but with many saws it isn't necessary when the saw is really warm.

Have had my 576XPGAT since 2010 and I had the same issue with the clutch. Installed aftermarket clutch for 372xp  (no holes)and last year  put the W clutch cover on for a huge improvment in clearing chips while splitting. My last 288xp sits under the steps now  ;D
