Weight and handling points in the direction of the Husky - and it is a legend that is about to be discontinued because of EPA.....

I am sure either will serve you well though!

What's wrong with using the search function ?

372 is lighter, power is equal stock (372 can be easily and heavily modded), both are smooth to run, both have good air filtration (the 372 probably a bit better), dealer support is usually better at Stihl.

I recommend the 372. It's a legend. Let the strato saws develop a bit first, they need a diet.

the way things are going in europe, I see a future where a non EPA saw will be no longer allowed in the woods. I hope I am wrong though.

372-5.3hp or 5.4? for the 75cc model

441-5.5hp

How is it that the filtration is better on the 372?

Max hp and max torque are just two snapshots of the power curve(s), the numbers doesn't tell the whole story on the capability of a saw.

That makes the 372 look worse then. It doesn't have enough area under the curve. It's the 70cc 361.

Looking for a 70cc saw to cut firewood for OWB and right now I'm on the fence between the two. Anyone have the plusses and minuses of one over the other? Thank you
I had this exact predicament a while ago.

I went with the 441. Decent local dealer support (and I like how it looks!).

I would encourage you to give them both a run. Then... eeny, meeny, miny, moe......
