I assume the New saw is supposed to replace both the 372XP and the 576xp, but you never know with the 372 - it was supposed to be replaced already in 2005 - but the market just didn't accept that..... 8)
The 576XP is a odd duck , I had in my possession 3 of them in the Auto Tune setup starting about 5 yrs ago and they were a darn good saw.
But I think Husqvarna should have made them a 85-88cc saw to replace the 390XP.

Hi! Long time since activity in this topic. What do you think, will the 572 be released next week?

Swelogg welcome to Forestry Forum!
Good post and you have some good undercover info there.
572XP looks like a oversized 562XP and should be much more robust.
Rumor says it won't make North American market for at least another year....same with the Stihl MS462C.

The 372xp has always been one of my all round favourite mid size saws. I bought one last tear at this time with a 562xp,I prefer the 372. Call me a skeptic but I am going to buy another 372xp this fall, hopefully by the time I need to replace them in a couple of years they will have all the bugs worked out.
I noticed the primer bulb on the new 372,does anyone else find this a pain in the butt to operate with gloves on?  also had a client look at my 562 and ask why I was not running pro line saws,his poulan had a primer bulb to so he assumed it was a cheap saw.

 I wish my 372xp had a primer bulb. It does fine without it but it usually always takes about 10-12 pulls to get it fired up if it has sat more than a week or so. I flooded it a few times trying to get it started before I figured out the trick.

My 372 is the same way Woodcutter_Mo
If it's sat awhile, it's a bear to get it running, 10+ pulls like you said. Once it's started, it's a one pull saw all day. Next day, 3 pulls cold.
I don't get why primer bulbs get knocked so much. Yeah they're on the cheapo saws, but why shouldn't they be on pro saws too? My Jonsered 2260 (similar to a 562xp) has a primer bulb, and that is hands down the easiest starting piece of 2 stroke equipment I have ever run. Hit the primer bulb a few times, choke it, pull till it coughs (one, sometimes two pulls) choke off, pull and she goes. Every time.

My old edition 372XP has a weird trait, it always starts on the first pull while choked no matter how long it sits.
I'm thinking maybe the carb leaks a bit of fuel into the intake manifold and is always primed. Saw runs great otherwise.

I'm confused about the primer bulbs on my 550XP and 562XP too.
I understand they pump fuel through the carb and back into the tank so you can never over pump them.
I heard pumping the warmed up fuel out of the carb after shutting it down after long hard cuts,  helps cool the carb down for better restarts.
Nothing in the owners manual seems to give any information.

This new 572XP touts a new insulated top cover. What looks like a layer of white Styrofoam on the airbox partition wall. It's supposed to keep the carb cooler from cylinder heat.
I'm thinking Husqvarna should make upgraded covers available for the 550XP/ 562XP also.

The new 550XP my dealer gave me last week to replace the old troublesome one, even has hot start issues on its first tank of fuel. After warmed up good I had to set the fast idle to get it to start >:(

My new MS261C never had a hard start issue yet and it's worked up into the high 90s with lots of humidity.

Here's a pic from my 550XP owner's manual  on how to start the saw after warmed up.
Sure a lot of trouble to start these saws :D
I hope the new 572XP has elimated this step of setting the fast idle every time you need to start the saw.

The new MS261C doesn't even allow you to set the fast idle . Only on choke position when you need to start it from cold.
