    I stopped in at the nearest Husky dealer today to try and get a filing roller guide-"they don't have them and don't get any call for them-everyone just drops their chains off for grinding". Really? I asked - how much - $10.00/loop :jawdrop: Then I noticed a brandy new 372 on the shelf and asked the price - contractor price of $780w/20" bar. It was all I could do not to laugh out loud in his face. I quickly walked out before they charged me for breathing!!!:bang:

    This can't be real world Husky pricing is it? They did say that they had 346's at 445.00 ea.

    Try about 3 dollars for a new file. As for the 372 being 780 I hope that was just a typo. You can get them for $605, either a 18" or 20", I don't remember which. But anyway thats a waaaaayyyy off the $780. Keep shopping!

    Sounds like he has them priced the same as the Stihl 70cc saws.

    I have seen the 372's for $580 before taxes powerhead only.

    I knew that the dealer was located in a high-end area and was prepared for him to be pricey - but these numbers were insane. I seriously doubt I'll ever step foot in there again.

    Hey Charlie - that was my thought when I saw the tag on the saw - so I asked at the counter and he looked up the price and it was the same # (for homeowner or contractor).

    I purchased my 359 online. I really wanted to buy local but I am not made of money and local dealer bye me are a joke. I got a new 359 with 4 chains, hat, shirt, no tax, & no shipping for $405. My local dealer wanted $545 just for the saw + tax!!!!:jawdrop:

    780.00 I would snap it up as here the 2171 goes for a tad over a 1000.00 Cdn thats like 989.00 U.S dollars:clap: I would really like to know why they screw us so bad on the saw prices in Canada! Heated handles are like $75.00 more. I really want to get a 2171/372 but if Bailey's starts to carry the Makita 7901/Dolmar 7900 That will be my next choice.As everyone is looking for something light and powerful.

    It's 10.00 bucks here as well! I get it done for free well really it cost me a case of Big Rock {Beer} to get a few done but then I do get to look through the junk saw pile to see if anything interests me.

    Thanks for the info I even asked them on there FAQ section on the 6400 and they posted a reply. Saying they were having trouble with Dolmar/ Makita wanting to supply the saws to North America. If I new how to post the link I would but it is on Bailey's web page under the FAQ part on the 6401 Makita.

    Not all prices around the country are the same, I could buy the 372 cheaper from Baileys than I could from Husky themselves.

    Why not ask them to order in files for you instead of jumping out the door? They may be very nice and helpful!!

    At least you're in the continent, Kah

    If I was to buy the 372 I'd have to givem almost 1,400$ and no mistake.
    Can you believe it?
    They sell "Made in China" plasti-crap saws with funny names, they actually go for 400-500$ for 40cc.

    Kah the market is much smaller here. Supply and demand the demand is for homeowner saws and the supply is plenty= lowprice but prosaws low supply and low demand = high price. 372xp is $1000 440 is $1100 and 441 is $1100 want heated handle add $100 20" chain loop $30
    grinding $7.00 a loop. I used to feel like you until I read some posts about what the guys in a really low demand Country pay.

    a lot of dealers here sell MSRP only.

    two of them quoted me $789.95

    my dealer sold me my last one for $625 power head only. said he may be able to get me another.

    the other guy i deal with sells the for $659 with a 20" bar and chain.he's 45 minutes away.i only go on rain days when i'm bored.
