We've been waiting for months to have a demo saw at the store. Sold and started a couple of the 572 but have not cut with one till today. We cut with a stock 372 wrap handle first then switched to the 572. Night and day difference. I never thought I needed a $1,000 saw till today. I highly recommend it to anyone that is considering buying one. [Linked Image]

I'd love it. I have a hardly used 6 year old 660. It's like new. Carb version that's a 6 years old. I traded some things I don't use anymore for it. It's a runner. I'd trade it for a 572.

I did a bit of research and ended up with a couple of Stihl saws instead. I do have a small Husky for the Missus though and like it for what it is. For grunt, the MS661 is tough to beat ... aint no lightweight though.

That's the thing about the 572, light enough to pack around with a big bar.

For that I have a 388 with a 28 " bar with 70cc it still has enough power for most things the 661 travels in the truck or the 6 wheeler

About 10-12 yrs ago I got a 575xp. Use it with a 24 bar for hardwood over 16. Never have had a problem.

My money was on the 372 also. The husky rep told us it's %15 faster, but I think it was way faster than that. We were cutting a oak log, about 20 inches The 372 was a 2015 model almost no hours on the saw, factory bar and chain. The 572 had the new x cut chain. It was a huge difference in cut time. There was no slowing down the 572

What does a new 372 cost now, if they still make them?

I hope husky did something with those crappy plastic cage bearings they used in the other autotune saws . We sold jonsered saws at my work and I have rebuilt one and had 4 others husky wouldn't even think about standing behind and warranty them. I have held the 572 and it just seems a bit bulky to me. I have a js2166 that I made into a 372 and that saw is way better than the 372 that someone stole off my porch. Good looking saw and I have heard good reviews from some that have run them.

$880.00 roughly can get them for less end of year or sale. I recall when I was in the shop this summer. Bought a husky limbing saw for pruning apple trees.

I got my 372 at an auction- get this, they had a Homelite xl12 advertised with pictures, nothing else. I see this Husqvarna handle sticking out from under a table, I pulled it out and saw it was a 372. I was a nervous wreck and knew of one other logger there and about 30 amish. I figured I would go 350 and got it for 90.00. I been around a lot of saws and could tell this one didn't have many hours on it. It was however, heavily stained with pine pitch. The xl12 got 35.00 LOL.

I own a tree service and I've ran 372xp for 15 years but this 572xp is a beast, probably the fastest cutting saw I've ever used

I wouldn't take a 576 for free........ heavy and they don't cut that fast. for the weight you might as well buy a 395......

I worked on a 3120 a couple months ago, it had a 20 inch bar on it, and I don't think it cut as fast as the 572.

I don't get it.

Lots of opinions but, no hard facts. What is the horsepower? At what rpm? Weight? Durability?
