HUSQVARNA 576 XP®
25 year upgrade
My new 576 XP replaces a 25 year old 266 XP. The improvements in ease of starting and ergonomics are very nice and I expect the new saw to last just as long.

I bought this saw because it had the best power to weight ratio of any large saw on the market. Over the last year of ownership I've cut over 10 cord of wood and couldn't be happier with the weight, performance, and trouble free operation. This is a very powerful saw that's comfortable to run all day and uses very little fuel for a saw of this caliber. A must have in your arsenal of saws. I would buy another in a second.

Husqvarna 576xp with 24" Bar and chain
I purchased a 576xp chainsaw from my local Husky dealer. The saw came with a 24" bar and chain. This is my first Husky saw. I normally use dolmars, and stihls. All I can say is this saw has exceeded all my expectations, and some more! It cuts faster than my stihl ms 460 in pin oak. I am really happy with the purchase. It's lighter, and just a pleasure to run all day. The anti-vib sys. is awesome! you can run this saw full throttle all day, and not have your hands fall asleep.

All I was hoping for and then some
I've owned Husqvarna for 30yrs. Ive never had a problem and they just keep getting better. However, the hole for the bar oil is to close to the handle which makes it too hard to fill with certain jugs of oil.

I am starting a firewood buisiness and needed a bigger saw. I went with the 576xp. I didn't the money for the next saw up saw but I am convinced I did well with this purchase. I ran the saw for about four hours yesturday and was impressed. I was somewhat concerned with the weight difference over my 455. I like the 576xp better. I am running a 32" inch bar and full skip chain. The tree i was working on has a huge trunk, the diameter is bigger than the overall length of the saw and bar. It never slowed this beast down. Husqvarna, thank you.

Being a farmer and not a full time logger I was hesitant to spend the money for the 576xp saw. Glad I did though, as I do go through quite a bit of wood clearing fence rows, groves, and cutting firewood for an outdoor wood furnace. It has the power to go through wood quickly. It does have a little heft, but the chainsaw is well balanced, and the weight is expected of a saw of this size and power. Starts easily and runs smooth.

The power and build quality are amazing. Easy to start and quite economic on the fuel considering the size and power. Cuts through wood like a knife through butter and is a beautiful saw as well. wouldn't choose any other saw in hindsight.

Very Impressive so far.
Definitely beats the hand me down 30 year old Echo I was using. I bought this saw along with a blower and am very impressed with both. I'm clearing my backyard of 12 trees, all about 50 yrs old. I've gotten through three so far and the saw has performed excellent so far. Switching bars is relatively easy, the bar lubrication system is superior to any of the other makes I looked at and the ergonomics/ weight placement seem better than the rest of the field too. I'm confident that when I hand this one down in 30 years it will still be an efficient tool.
