    lmao

    460??? My butt, all you need is a 440 to stomp his girly self with all the epa crap they have on the 575's. If you really wanna stomp a mudhole, get yourself a PS-7900 and tell him he needs a 395 before he can even talk to you, lmao.... Smack is smack dude, let'em talk. A 575 is a good saw for starters. If he knew what he was doing he'd have something more proven and tested in the field with guys that use'em all day every day...

    :cheers: eh?

    I thought the actual work on the 575, other than a weight gain over the 372, was it was holding up and performing well... :popcorn:

    Maybe it is one of the slightly lighter 5.8hp ones that is in the 2008 catalog?

    Has anyone seen one of those in real life at all?

    Tell him not to burn the bar and chain up in 10 minutes.:ices_rofl:

    Then be there to remind him why he should have bought a 440, 441, or 460.:clap:

    This was all done in good fun, although my brother really is looking at a 575xp. I hope to have my 460 my Good Friday though. Will keep everyone posted when i do get it:D I have run Huskies, and Stihls, I prefer Stihls, he likes Huskies. But when we go to the woods, at least we usually have at least 2 saws on hand:D. Have fun out there everyone:greenchainsaw:

    +1


    Tell your bro if he must have a husky, get a 372, or the bigger 385 if he wants to keep up with your 460.

    Give into the dark side, we have cookies. Once you start running Huskys, forever will they consume your destiny.

    It was a dry joke, LOL. A 372 can't hang with a 460 so it's closest comp is the 385.....:cheers:
