    The 372 is my answer. It has proven it's excellence, the 441 has not yet.

    Actually... doesn't Husqvarna make vacuums and sewing machines? :laugh:

    But on a serious note... I have not had the chance to use a 441... but if I were ever to buy a Husqvarna... it would be a 372. Of the 372's I have run, they are top notch... I love my 044, and the 046's... but a 372XP is one fine machine!

    Sure, and the 441 probably will be beaten pretty badly by the 576xp, and never will........

    Yes my Oregon .325 , standard 7 spline rims are also 9 pin. Stihl here in Canada never offered this rim, but these Oregon rims I have must have been old inventory because they are not even radial ported. Just bought a couple of my last ones a few years back.The logging company I cut for years back had a policy of small radius bar tips only,[Oregon guard tip or banana nose, double guard, Windsor mini- pro tips] . When the young feller cut himself in the face [as I mentioned in my earlier post] 30 yrs ago,this policy wasn't in.
    In small pulpwood and medium timber I ran a 18" .325 on my Stihl 044, because with the small tip on a short bar the 3/8 would de-rail easily. the .325 was a lower profile cutter making it a more suitable chain for that bar & tip. On my larger saws 064,066 I ran longer bars [ deeper in the belly] with the mini-pro or oregon guard tips and had no problem with the 3/8s.

    I believe the 9-pin rims still aren't radially ported, nor are all the 8-pin ones (look it up on Oregons web-site).


    Another observation is that when you compare them, the Oregon and Stihl rims look exactly the same (except for the logo) - wonder who really makes them........
