    I don't think those old saws have traditional cutters, things have improved over the years.

    They're just getting good if they're missing a few cutters:chainsaw:.
    As long as there is enough kerf they will cut :yes:.
    The husky ones are pretty nice if your hauling one saw(not really into that :laugh:), they have a plastic liner in the bottom like a heavy duty paint tray. I've used the one I have a few times when we go to the inlaws if I'm hauling a leaker or a saw I don't know in the car. In the suburban the saws go in the back on a wood shelf, the wood absorbs any small leaks of oil that gets past the old towels or shirts I put under them. I haul them front to front as James was saying like Mike does, but I don't normally put the bars through the handle, makes it too difficult to pull one out at a time over the top of the other saws especially when they are on the back of the shelf.
    Shoulda bought a husky :dumb::lol:.
    The husky ones will fit an xtorq, but it's a little tight putting it in, yours should have a lot smaller dogs than the 372xt and this one has larger dogs than those and it goes in although tight. It does seem like it would be a nice option for your car, the zipper is heavy duty also.
    It wouldn't fit well with a 20" bar though I don't think. I can try it with a standard handle and the large 372 dogs and a 20" if you'd like Neil, or if anyone wants me to check fit on any other saws let me know and I will try it if I have one.

    Right! Scratcher chain or at best, chipper chain (which is slower than semi chisel). And maximum engine RPM is 6000.

    Hey thanks chipper, I don't need one though. As I said, the 50 m...60 yards to the street to cut the neighbors stump is the furthest I've taken one of my saws! If I did need to, for the odd trip, it would be ok wrapped in old blankets and shoved in my massive expedition/duffel bag. If I had to carry it more regularly though I'd be keen on one of those bags.

    Welcome. Thats a nice situation to be in :yes:.
    I have a lot of tree gear in big bags like that, it's amazing how much stuff I've amassed just to cut a tree or two :D.
    Glad your enjoying that 365, they are great saws.

    I had a Super Wiz 77 and it had standard 1/2 pitch chain. Looked exactly like my 404, just a little bigger. Remember that the Wiz had about a 6000 RPM range with a 2:1 gear reduction, so the chain is only going about 3000RPM. If you look, it's throwing some pretty good sized chips. I bet if you stick a stop watch on it, that cut is faster than it sounds.

    Just brought it back downstairs and tried my 576 in it and it was a little longer than the tray, but it zips up with ease because the dogs are much shorter on the bottom/don't extend below the saw so it sets lower in the case, it also has a standard handlebar instead of the wrap the 372xt has. I wouldn't want to put a chain inside the sleeve, but it seems you could put a bar on the saw(leaving the chain in the tray) and it would fit nicely without scratching the saw up, or you could wipe it down real quick and just throw it in whatever car you are riding in. I just thought of this, maybe using a bar cover then putting it in the bag would allow you to leave the chain on, I'll check later, maybe lol.

    89C79940-A916-4945-A641-6C26A2FF80FC.jpeg Pick your brains. Neighbor asked me to sharpen a chain for him. It’s on an 026 Pro. From the white mark going right for 15 drive links it’s .050 and non safety. From the green mark going left they’re .063 and safety chain. Never seen anything like it. He said he bought it at our local creamsicle dealer. @Philbert?
