The 372 is my answer. It has proven it's excellence, the 441 has not yet.
Cool, I'll remember that, no problem. BTW, this is not about Thall. I mentioned all sides in the beginning of this, if you were paying attention. You just can't get off it can you? Now the pantie thing.......LOL

Actually... doesn't Husqvarna make vacuums and sewing machines?
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!
:agree2: :agree2: :agree2:
...and so do Stihl - but those are 9-pin.
Don't tell us you run .325 on your 372???:jawdrop: :jawdrop: :monkey:
No - but I could........
I have never used a bar shorter than 13", and don't want to, even on the 339xp .......
Btw, that one was the saw of choise last weekend.
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........
Old post - and he didn't really.......
I had a good laugh at that one lol
Nothing wrong with that.........:hmm3grin2orange: :hmm3grin2orange: :hmm3grin2orange:
