    I have my eye on a Jonsered 2071 that was owned by an elderly man that can not lift it anymore. It was only used to feel a few trees a year then he used smaller saws to cut the firewood. It looks nearly new, have been wanting a Husky 372 for some time and this seems like it may take care of that. The guy wants 225 which I feel is fair, What to you think and how close it this to the 372, If im not mistaking it is dang near the same saw. Thanks for any help.

    372 is the same saw.Except the handle a bit different angle and color .At this price,its a no brainer.

    I would feel bad but that is his asking price. Jonsered's are not well known in my area and have a terrible resale. Now, I know I could get him down to 175 or 200 and even tho I am tighter than tree bark I can not do it to him. Thanks for the advice, Got to go, headed to the ATM

    Sorry if it seemed like I asked the same question. At the time I did not know this 2071 was gona be on the market, At the time I was trying to educate my self on the HUSKEY's. Then the 2071 cam up and I wanted to know how close this saw was to a 372. Of course I got good sound advice on both post. I asked this specific question about model and Price because you never know If there may be a problem with a specific saw unless you ask.

    Congrats on a great price for a virtually new 2071. I'm sure it is going to run great, just like a 372XP.

    the 2071 is one of those saws that fly under the radar and most people don't know what a great saw it is.
    your right the j-reds have a horrible resale value around here too,that 2071 is a"wolf in sheep's clothing",a red 372 with a different top handle....great find!!!!!
