    Glad you like the saw, Rich, I might be the only one to say or think this, but that's a lot of HP for such a small bar. If all you need is 20" I'd venture to say a 60cc saw would pull it fine and save some weight. Lets hope you get to some bigger jobs soon.

    And if you're nearly stalling a stock 70cc saw with 20" bar in oak you're definitely doing it wrong.

    Also, not sure that I understood you, but are you saying you're using this saw as a limbing saw? ... on 18 foot trees, where the limbs are like 4-5 inches? Again, I think you're schlepping too much saw and could have gotten by with a lighter saw.

    I agree with all you said 100 percent. In fact this debate was had in my introduction post. My company runs 8 or 9 372's a 562 a 395, and a few top handle stihls for pruning. I bought a 372 because that's what we use. We have parts saws, and frankly its what I wanted. The debate about too much saw is a good one but I don't care to get into it again. Thanks for your input.

    This alone would be a good enough reason. Nice saw you bought.

    You know what you're doing, and prefer. Just go with that.

    Any of these "posers" who think a log, and a tree are the same thing, can think whatever they want to.

    Is there a reason you removed the original serial number for another?

    I didn't. I'm guessing the saw builder did.

    I knew you didn't. Saw builders usually don't remove serial numbers.

    I believe he said he built that saw from NOS parts from scratch. So the crankcase would never have had a serial number plate.
