I drool every time I see a 372. I am too cheap to pull the trigger however. If it was something I made money with I would.

My wife's cousin got a screaming deal on a near new 395 but I have not seen it yet.

My use is minimal, since the only wood I cut is for the shop wood stove. What you all think about this saw?
Good saw , I had a Husky 460 with a 18" bar but downsized to a 445 / 16" bar - plenty for trail clearing on my atv .
I would downsize to a 18" bar - how many huge logs are you cutting ?
