Won't be a fair race, 372 owns that class for a reason. They gain more then most models with porting.
Yeah buddy, they are fast, and not bad for torque if done right. The mmws 2166 I got off you had some nice grunt but wasn't real fast, same with the 2166 I'm running now, little timing advance would probably fix that ;).
This one is strong saw but also fast.
Running a round chain, I have videos of it cutting slightly quicker with a square chain in the same wood, but it isn't frozen lol.
It's a great work saw :yes:.
I think I have an eight pin on it here Mike.

I did up a chain for my neighbors grandsons 271, it had no problem pulling a 20" 325 chain, and it sipped fuel, not the worse saw I've ran.
The good thing is you'll never sell it ;).
Just don't bury that 20" bar and lean on that 271 in anything that looks like a hardwood.

That was factory stock square file chain, which works well in hardwood. Steeper angles will cut faster (as shown in Bret's 2nd 460 cut), but they will also dull faster. They are the same angle I use for my woodcutting. For the competition, all saws had to be under 80 cc and use the same B+C.

I have stated for years, that in hardwood, anything less than 90 cc generally does best with 7 pin, and after the testing in the hard 18" White Oak cant, the participants agreed with that assessment. I realize that in 8" softwood cants this does not hold true.

In that video, you have to sort out the ones that used the same B+C, and the ones that did not.
