HUSQVARNA 562 XP®
this is a great saw i have ran many husqvarna saws before i was a little skeptical of the auto tune but it works very well i cut a lot of firewood and some logging this saw will do it all being right under a 372xp for power .if you don't have this saw get one, you will love it very nice well built saw

Excellent power in lightweight saw
The 562XP has sufficient power to handle almost all cutting tasks without the burden of excessive weight. Runs smooth and accelerates very quickly. Perfect saw for seniors who cut wood often. The only saw I've operated that matches this saw in accel. speed is the Solo 656. The 562 is superior in top end H.P. Any woodsman would be impressed with the performance.

I have used the 562xp for several months now and have cut 25 cords with no problems!
it starts very easy, uses a lot less fuel than the Stihl I use.
I am completely sold on this saw and would recommend the

The 562XP is an EXCELLENT Chainsaw
I purchased the Husqvarna 562XP as my first Husqvarna I have owned. After my initial internet review of the saw and visiting my Dealer, I decided on the 562XP because of all the features and the awesome balance,weight, and power. When I finally got out in the woods with the saw, I was rewarded with a very good purchase. The power is outstanding,the chain speed and torque made me glad I purchased this model. I can say that Huqvarna did their research on the 562XP! Very High quality,durable chainsaw that won't let you down in the woods.

balance very good.
Replaced 372XP with the 562XP has lot less power and has a hesitation in throttle and starts hard.
When I registered Web site said I would receive a XL TEE SHIRT I never did!

I bought this saw this morning based on the reviews. Best saw I have EVER used. The dealer said it was a little overkill for my use cutting firewood ( about 25-30 cord a year ) and recommended a 357 or similar saw with a 2 year warranty.
I liked this one because it had more useable power, 2 lbs. lighter, narrower chassis, higher revving engine. The price was a little steep but well worth it once I used it.
I upgraded from my John Deere CS56 and its like going from a Ford Model T to a new Mustang Cobra.

Another awesome saw in the Auto-Tune family
This is my third AT saw. 576AT, 550xp and now the 562xp. Very impressive 60cc saw. It's got the grunt to hang with the 372xp! No tuning required. It's a start and go saw, winter or summer. Awesome torque and rpms will simply leave a smile on your face. My AT's have not had any hot start issues and I'm happy thus far. Well balanced and low vibes. Try one and you won't be disappointed.

Step up my game
Been using a 455 for years and still happy with the saw. Wanted a saw with a little more muscle; so decided to upgrade to an XP..... Great decision!
Light weight, but so much power and speed. The 562 is a life saver after hurricane Sandy and strong nor'easters. I like the ability to adjust the oiler and the vibration dampening can't be beat. I use a MS460 at work and its a handful.....tiring.
I can use the 562 all day and still feel my hands...nice.
Price was a bit steep; however, you get what you pay for.
So far I like the autotune feature. My Husky dealer is also top notch.
New England firewood does not stand a chance.
