372 husky project
« on: January 13, 2014, 06:07:27 pm »
I know Kevin can find great deals on cheap 372's that run, but so far I haven't found much for lower priced project saws.  I am looking for a project 372, seems theres decent supply of parts out there for them & you can find the saws, however as a firewood hack I don't have to have new & shinny.  What is mostly seen is the really nice saws that bring a lot higher price for.  The super faded 372 on the bay for 300, well he didn't except my offer of $200 shipped & evidently his other offer didn't meet his expectations either.  What should be a reasonable price for an older 372 that needs rebuilt?

The last one I sold went for $175.00. It was complete but ugly and needed a top end job. Are you planning to build the saw up from parts? I have a pair of decent cases ugly but usable that you can have for $20 plus ship if you want them.

A buddy of mine got three basket case saws for 170 shipped from down south, so have a look on CL from down south.

If you have time and patience you will find the type prices Tim is talking about. 

I sold my ported and rebuilt stock ones for $400. Some had new oem crank kits $200+, oem tanks $100 etc. If I came even close to breaking even I was happy. If I would have kept them all for myself. I had a good deal.  I just decided to try and build another series of saws is my reason for selling.

I look for blown up 365's. They are usually less money and I like them better anyway....especially with a 372 top end.

I got a 365, 372, 394, $ 270 shipped to me.  Add $300 in parts and they will be good as new.  People on ebay are nuts for what they want for saws, and some people pay it.

Tractorsaw1, here is a 365SP on feebay appears to be a 2000 saw. However IMHO the 'ported' muffler he bought appears to be a stock 'EU' muffler!

Thanks guys, I will keep an eye on the 365.  Please enlighten me on the stock "EU", not sure what that means.  Also can you give me some pointers on telling the year of the saw?

The year is on the name plate near the bar oil fill hole. After you get familiar with them, you can get pretty close on the year by just looking at them.

Quick answer EU=European Union. The EU mufflers are the ones with the tube out the upper left corner and are MUCH MORE RESTRICTIVE than the US version with the outlet in the top.
