    Getting a 372 and woundering what length of bar it will pull. 28? 30? 32? Ill be running a 24" for most cutting but might need a longer bar for some larger trees. Ive never ran a 372 and im coming from a 394.

    Hey buddy. I run a 24” on mine exclusively and I think it’s perfect. I have a friend that has ran a 28” on his with skip since he bought it 5 ish years ago for part time tree work and it’s been just fine. I can’t personally vouch for anything bigger, but a 28 with skip chain is fine unless you’re really going to give it hell. It’d probably run a 30 or 32 in soft wood and oil it in a pinch if you werent heavy handed, but I think you’d likely be very disappointed coming from a 394 with the longer bars.

    Hey thanks for some insight. It will mainly be softer woods for the bigger bar. The 394 was just not needed anymore cause most of what i cut now is 10-20"

    If your keeping the 394, use that for bars over 24".

    28" max on a 372 in my opinion.

    Sold the 394 to fund getting a 372. Figure if the 372 isnt enough i can always get a 395 down the road

    I ran 32’s on my 372’s with no problems. Keep a sharp chain and it pulled fine

    IMO ide stick with a 24" for a 372. Like stated above it will run 28's or 32's if you need it to to buck up a big tree every once and a while, but I would not recommend anything over a 24 as a permanent bar for the saw unless your gonna do a bit of modding. Also I've had maybe 2 or 3 huskies that oiled like I want them too and I'm just not sold on a 372 oiling 28"+ adequately. Quick muff mod and oiler work will get you up to a 28

    My dad bought an oe 372 new set up with a 32 inch bar and skip chain, it does a pretty good job of oiling it and if you aren't ham handed it will pull it okay. If you were production falling big trees I'd say get a 395 but for moderate use it's okay. Of course, east coast woods are harder so y'all have different specs. As @Demontang is in Washington, just turn your oiler to the max when you put the 32 on it, run skip chain, keep your chain sharp and you'll be fine.

    I've seen a stock ms290 run a 36" semi skip. Doesn't mean it should. Isn't Piltz putting 28" on a ms180?

    I keep forgetting that all I ever cut with a big saw is oak, ash, cherry, and locust. If your not in hardwoods all the time, it will probably do fine with a 28+. (other than the oil, double triple check and make sure it oils enough)

    It should be fine with the 32. If you were going to run a 32 all the time I would say go bigger, but from the sounds of what you want to do with it, the 372 will be just fine.

    Mainly will see pine. Douglas fur, ponderosa, log pole, white or black pine, tamarack. Some random ash, walnut, apple. Really doubt id see oak, locusts etc here. Bigger stuff here is normally popular or something like it.

    He would put a 36 on a wild thing or mini mac. With his special treatment, list it on eBay for $1000.
