HUSQVARNA 562 XP®
With a sharp chain, you stand waist deep in sawdust in about 30 seconds.. Works really good.. I buck stovewood, and one thing that happens with this saw is it won't start when it's really hot. It starts on 2 or 3 pull when the saw is cold, but after you buck through a tank of gas and let it set for 5 - 10 min, it won't start. But that's on a 85+ degree day too! Other than that, it is an MEAN MACHINE!

Total animal of a saw
Ive used many husqvarna and stihl chainsaws over the years and this is by far the best handling and the fastest 60cc saw I have ever used this little saw screems and cuts like and animal uses very little gas I used to use 372xp almost all the time but this little saw kinda makes it look bad which is a hard thing to do Ive used my 372 xp for years and totally love the saw 372 has slight advantage in the really large oak but other than that the 562xp takes the cake I has about 40 hours on the saw as of now and it starts first pull dont even need the primer bulb cant say enough about this saw as far as Im concerned Stihl is definitley losing in the 60cc class big time!!! the revboost tears through limbs and smaller wood but still has the grunt for the 24" and over without the heavy weight of a 70+ cc and can run it all day with little to no fatigue

This one of the most Impressive 60cc Saws I have run and that's saying a lot having a Pro Tree service company! Explosive power everywhere. Light weight and balanced handling.

The Saw is Family!
The 4.7 hp to 12.57 lb horsepower/weight ratio is the best in the business. Outstanding handling, performance, ease of use, this saw will have you grinning from ear to ear the first time out in the woods! The initial cost was the only major hurdle but once made you won't regret it!

This is make me have 8 Husqvarna .Husqvarna 562 XP was purchase to replace a old Pioneer p60 that was my Dads favorite chainsaw and is still a good and fast cutting chainsaw but it weights 22lb. use gas like it is pouring on the ground. So 562XP is my new favorite chainsaw .I love everything about it ,specially the RevBoost it is awesome.Air filters stays clean, lot of power, you can not loosing the bar nuts.

Like the 357 or 262? Then you must power up the 562xp!!!!
Fast and responsive! I increased productivity by 1/3. You can't replace time so buy some back w/ this upgrade. Husqvarna did it again. Little to no vibration and great balance so less fatigue. Better plan you next step because this saw will be waiting for you to catch up.

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.
