HUSQVARNA 576 XP®
I purchased this saw August 2014. I run it most with a 36" skip tooth chain and am amazed at how it cuts oak and hickory with the same ease as when I use the 24" regular tooth chain. It starts easily. I added dual "dogs" as soon as I got the saw to replace the standard single dog; I always use 93 octane fuel. Biggest tree was a 64" oak.

Great Saw, Bad dealer
Picked up a new 576XP today.
$889.95 MSRP? I don't know what happened to that price because the dealer charged me $949.00 for it! On top of that, I received no manual, or scabbard to protect the chain, just the saw...
On a better note, the saw started right up and ran perfectly. 20" logs were cut like butter.

Pro Arborist use this saw every day great for big removals, not to heavy just enough power to get the job done. Best saw for the price. Just keep your maintenence up and its a great saw.

This is the best saw ever!!
This saw has no problem getting the job done, everything that I put it up against it handled no problem, I burred it in to a 34" red oak and it didn't even know it was in a piece of wood. The hickory doesn't phase it at all I love this saw well worth the money and I bought a six pack of oil and got another year warranty for a total of three years. Great buy!!!!

Powerful, Low Vibe, East starting saw
I bought one of these in the spring and have cut about 4-5 cords of firewood with it so far. Mostly Elm and Oak here in WI, and I am running a 24" bar with full chisel chain. It cuts through hardwood like butter and is very fuel efficent for something with this much power. It is a tad bit hefty, but would you expect anything else for a 70+ cc saw!?!

does not last
i am a logger that works 7 days a week alot. this was my 2nd 576. it didnt even last 90 days before the barrings went out. i went 2 years before trying it again. same thing happened to me again. husqavarna took care of me both times first time they gave me a 372 nice saw but lasted 4 months. this time going to try 390 hope i have better luck or i will have to go to stihl. i really like the 576 and it would be great for cutting fire wood on the weekends but running it 10 to 12 hours a day it wont last. if it lasted at least a year i would buy one every year i really like the power it has. it really rips when it is running.
