    I was reading below that the Jonsered 2171 is a 372 in red. How true is this? I have always been a Stihl man but love my Jonsered 670, It is my second favorite saw next to my 660. I have always wanted to Try a 372 but they are gone, If the 2171 is the same I will be adding a new member to the crew. What do the experts here say?

    Virtually identical. Only differences are color and different angle on the front handlebar, which I like better. (Both!)

    I love mine!

    Get a 441 and put the others out of your memory.

    If I were to buy another stihl it would have to be a 440 or 460. I'm not sold on the 461 and can not figure why anyone would by one when the 460 has so much more power at the same weight. But that is beside the point, and I dont want to side track my own thread. My sthil's are great but the way my little 670 cuts I just have to try another Jonsered or Husqvarna. I hate to cheat but once in a while a man needs a change.:biggrinbounce2:

    Get the 372, you will not be disappointed. I love mine. You probably won't want to pick up that 660 near as much after you run a 372.

    Too late on the side track!;)

    After you get the 372, run a 441 and let us know what you think. I have been kicking around a 372 for a while now.

    I keep hearing the cheerleader squad squawking about this saw, and it's making me want to see what all the hooplah is about.

    You'd have to, because the buyer's remorse would be unbearable. :buttkick:

    I just bought a new pre EPA 372 about 3 weeks ago and love it. However I've never run a 440, 460 or a 441. I'd still bet there would be no buyers remorse. I know the feller I bought mine from had 5 of them left. If you want his number give me a call. He got mine to me 2 days after I ordered it.

    Mow, as I finished reading your post just now, it occurred to me: that's two seconds of my life I'll never have back. :buttkick:

    WAIT A SECOND!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just checked for buyer's remorse and didn't find an ounce. I appreciate you being concerned about "our" mental health, though.

    Actually, I think it is the gentle healing powers of great antivibe and not hardly ever having to clean my air filter. Keeps my mind free to worry about other things, like which saw to buy next!

    I'll tell ya man, I am still kicking around that 372. Not sure why I can't get that saw out of my head.

    Must be all the lound screeching teeney boppers waving their pompoms shouting... Go Husky!
