HUSQVARNA 576 XP®
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.

Nice step up
I bought a 576xp to handle the bigger cuts that were a bit much for my 346xp. The 576 rips through red oak and is surprisingly nimble and easy to run for long periods of time. I ran an MS 460 for a while and the 576 is significantly easier to handle from a vibration standpoint.

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.
