    I got a sad email today from Bailey's today, saying that the Husky 372 is finally done and they are closing out the last of their 372 inventory and that many of the dealers across the country are out or running low, a sad day. I bought one two years ago on the advice of many on this forum and have never regretted it. The saw has worked great and helped put up many cords of oak and pine.

    Damned EPA, they mess with many of my favorite toys, from chainsaws to snowmobiles. :cry:

    Very inaccurate post/e-mail I'm afraid.

    They may have finally run out of their stock of XPW's. But the 372 is alive and well in it's new X-Torq form. Hasn't lost a step, and if anything it's actually a better saw. There were some supply issues near the end of the year but most backorders should have been filled by now.

    I've got plenty of 'em!

    You can still get the non-X-Torq 2171s, can't you?

    I can't wait till the x-torq ones make it to Canada, as it seems the 372xpxt is already become a legend in its own.

    Nope, all gone. They have had the 2172 out for a few months already.

    Really, so the new X-torg is the same as the "classic" 372, that is basically a legend. Same power to weight, etc.

    I'm sure you have plenty of X-Torqs, the email I'm talking about is referring to the 372XPW, not an X-Touqs. I have an X-Torq saw, it sits in the truck most of the time.

    Too funny. I'm not even sure why Tilton has a website...it's not like it's ever kept up to date!
