HUSQVARNA 562 XP®
I like the new design
This saw is powerful and light weight. We have a tree farm and are actively involved in the timber harvests. I've been using this saw daily for a month now. I was concerned that the auto tune might cause trouble. But it's great. The saw starts and runs perfectly. No stalling out when first starting up the very cold saw. I have a $250 gift certificate from competition. I felt a little foolish not using it. But the other saws are heavier and more expensive for the same engine size. I'm glad I bought this one.

I traded in a stihl 460 magnum for my 562XP. So far I am very happy with the trade,reminds me of my 262XP which was my favorite.

excellent size, excellent power
I have run a great variety of chainsaws professionally for over 12 years, from Stihl 460 to Dolmar 7900 to this new Husqvarna 562xp. I was very impressed with the power to weight ratio, but also the handling while limbing and felling. I have only used it for under a week in Pine over 28" on the butt and it handles it with ease. In looking it over my only complaint is that it has an inboard rim sprocket. This I can not understand. This just makes it hard to change. Other than that I am very pleased with the product, and anxious to buy another!
