    Yes, Husky has what they call the "X-Torq" system which it supposed to lubricate better and give more power and reduced emissions. More can be found on the system here: X-Torq

    I think that just about all of Husky's current saws are "X-torq", even the low end 240. Now XP saws are a different animal, that's the professional range of saws. Lighter and higher performance.

    Well, there are lighter XP models to consider also. Lots of choices.

    As others have said, look at something in between.

    A 460 to 372xp is quite a jump. Not only in power/speed, but in price also.

    Im not sure what your experience/skill level is, but a 372 is certainly not for a beginner who just wants the biggest and fastest. Its a serious saw.

    And the weight difference is almost nil. And I'd be willing to wager a bet that a if you cut one cord of wood with the 460 and one cord with the 372, you will be less fatigued with the 372. Because allthough it is a "tad" heavier, it will be in your hands far less than the slower 460.

    And it just wouldnt be "me" if I didnt say something like "take a look at dolmar if you have a dealer around"
    ".........there is only one way to find out."

    The 365xt is actually 71cc and basically the same saw as a 372xp. Same weight, but with a bit less power.

    I'm not young anymore either, that's why I love the 346xp and 562xp. Both light weight with very good power/speed. I cut 20 cords a year, log and thin 400 acres and the 346xp is used the most. 357xp and 562xp come out for wood over 20". My highly modified 75cc 365 Special rarely gets run.

    I do not really want or need a saw as large as 372xp, but it's a great saw and a classic. The XP saws will have the best power to weight ratio. 555 is also an excellent saw, same as a 562xp, with a bit less power, but for less money... I wouldn't take a 460 for free, but would gladly pay for a 555, 357xp, 359, 562xp.

    You also need to get to a dealer and handle some of these saws. Not a box store, but a real dealer...

    The new 365 x torq is a 372 at 70.7cc with a divider in the transfer covers. Remove the divider and you got a 372xp in the $660 range

    From what I read. The 365 xtorque is a pro saw.Is that not true ? Just asking,what would be the difference in xt and xp ,other than the xtra . hp/cc with the 372xp

    Thanks LD. I don't consider myself a beginner.I've been using chainsaws since a kid,I used my Dad's old homelite back when they made good saws.What I worry about with a saw to large is starting.Like I've said.I'm not a young lad anymore I checked & No dolmar dealers near me

    What I understand is that a 365XT is basically a detuned 372 "XT". Its a simple removal of a baffle to unrestrict the 365 and turn it into a 372. However that change doesn't make it a 372 XP because there are still several parts that the XP has that the XT is missing. That said a 365xt that is turned into a 372xt is probably 9/10ths a 372xp.

    Is a 372 xt "pro" saw? Id say yes.

    See the 365-372 comparison and how to do the conversion here:
