Can someone please explain the Husqvarna website ?

They always show one of each model of saw, then when you click on it, you are given the various guide bar choices to click on, which then shows you the price of that particular saw and bar combo. Nothing difficult to understand about that.

Not that way with the 390XP. When you go to the "pro saw page" they show two distinctly different 390XP saws. One has a low-top air filter cover and the old style fuel and oil caps. The other has a high-top air filter cover and the new style fuel and oil caps.

How do you know which style 390XP you are buying?
For that matter, how do you order a high-top 372XP when there is no distinction between high or low top 372XP saws?
Additionally, if you buy a 390 or 372 with the new style fancy flip-up fuel and oil caps, can you change the fancy caps, and install the old style regular caps instead?

¿Alguien puede explicar el sitio web de Husqvarna?

Siempre muestran uno de cada modelo de sierra, luego, cuando hace clic en él, se le brindan las diversas opciones de barra guía para hacer clic, que luego le muestra el precio de esa combinación de sierra y barra en particular. Nada difícil de entender sobre eso.

No es así con el 390XP. Cuando va a la "página de sierra profesional", se muestran dos sierras 390XP claramente diferentes. Uno tiene una tapa de filtro de aire de techo bajo y las tapas de combustible y aceite de estilo antiguo. El otro tiene una tapa de filtro de aire superior y las tapas de combustible y aceite de nuevo estilo.

¿Cómo saber qué modelo 390XP está comprando?
De hecho, ¿cómo se pide una 372XP de alta gama cuando no hay distinción entre sierras 372XP de alta o baja altura?
Además, si compra un 390 o 372 con los tapones de combustible y aceite abatibles y elegantes del nuevo estilo, ¿puede cambiar los tapones elegantes e instalar los tapones normales del viejo estilo?

Los tapones son intercambiables

SKU numbers. Go back to the site and check the specifications tab on each saw. I would suspect either saw to come with the flip caps because that is just what Husqvarna uses now. Don't much care what the photo shows. The flip is just a grip, the cap screws into the tank just like they always have.

I didn't even know you could get a low top 390xp, last I looked locally they all had the high top versions on the shelf. The sight also lists out the xpg ad a different model as well, which adds confusion to the mix when going back and forth. If your set on a 390xp I'd hit up @Robin Wood and see what he has.

Thanks Sean.

As far as I know the only difference on the high top and low top is the filter and cover, rebuilt one the other day and looking through my box of filters I was thinking do I want to make this a high top or a low, only difference is the filter and plastic cover and as far as the G is concerned it just means heated handle grips and carb for colder weather.

Thought the filter elbow was different as well (?) May be I'm thinking of the 395xp....

Robin, Sean referred me to you. Been meaning to contact you on a 390XP, but I've been busy making the rounds to dealer's yesterday, and one more dealer today.
Dealer's here all say $1,199 + tax for a 390XP high-top with a 20" bar and chain. They won't sell just a power head by itself.

That's a good price, about what I paid for mine back in 2014 with a 24" bar out the door.
