Welcome aboard Taylor! Hope you enjoy yer stay!


Sounds like you've got a good group of saws already. Them 056'z are a hoss of a saw for sure.

Never run a 2077 (I don't think) but hear all good sorts about them. And you'll be amazed at how much the 372 wakes up when modded properly. Heck just a muffler mod makes them run a lot better. The 372 is one of the best saws out there - sounds like yours can only get better!! :bananaflash2: :bananarock:

That 056 is a cutting sucker, I run 32" bars on all my saws and the 056 will out cut my 372 by a fair amount, but my 372 is all stock and the 056 has a modded muffler. That's next weekends project for the 372 and its a 2004 model so from what I understand it won't have the catalytic muffler, is that correct? As far as the 2077, she's a tad underpowered, but that's nothing a little work won't fix :D

None of the 372's had a cat muffler that I know of.

Well that's good to know, I've modded bikes, snowmobiles, and diesel pickups, but this modding saws is all new to me :D

I considered using the 372 as a secondary saw and buying a 395 or a 3120, the trees I get into that I use for firewood are almost always fir that are 36-40 inches and that 372 feels underpowered, but I think a few mods will help it, maybe I'll snag a good, used 3120 to mod :D

A 372 done right will surprise you, but a 390xp would be the better choice for what your cuttin. Just my opinion.

The 372 modded should pull a 32" just fine. I like a 28" on mine but all I cut is hardwood. A 3120 is a heavy pig but will pull a long bar like nothing.

Glad to see that the rest of the world can afford a nice big saw.... sux 2 B me ! Anyway at 160 lbs I'd be whipped after cutting a truckload of tree with anything more than a 51 or so !

I'd be more whipped cutting a truckload of wood with a 51 than a 372 for sure!!! You gotta get your hands on one to see what I mean. You'll see ;)

I got the 3120 used. No way would I buy a new one for what I do. If I had a business I would probably get one for the deduction. :bananaflash2:

I can't afford new stuff, I bought all my saws used. The only brand new toy I've ever bought is my motorcycle haha

2 out of the 3 I have were bought new. My 372 is an xpw I bought in 2009 and the 2153 I bought this year. I've had over 30 saws in the past 3 years. I just keep buying/selling/trading around. Saws are much cheaper than diesel truck parts and guns.:beer:

A 372 is my favorite size saw to use to cut firewood or clean fence rows out. :cool:

It really is quite a versatile saw, I cut 14 cord of wood with it last year and it performed very well, she just needs juiced up a bit :D

The 372 is an awesome saw but don't let these guys convense you that it is the only saw to have a Stihl 044 or 046 would make a excellent firewood saw also.
