A World Leader in Chain Saws Just Got Better

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – October 28, 2010 - Husqvarna, a world leader in outdoor power equipment for forestry, lawn and garden care, has developed two new professional chain saws. The new 555 and 562 XP chain saws will change the way the industry classifies best-in-class.

These powerful saws boast a sleek and slender product design. The slimmed-down height and width of the saw chassis makes them easier to handle in almost any application. The distance between the front and rear handles has been optimized for efficient, comfortable operation. The innovative design also incorporates a lowered front handle with an overmold grip. On the inside, the 555 and 562 XP take advantage of Husqvarna’s revolutionary reduced gyro force technology. By reducing the weight of the saws’ key moving parts - fly wheel, crank shaft and piston – there is less interior movement in the engine, which creates less gyration. These unique features, inside and out, provide for the ultimate in control.

Not only do these saws look good, they’re also smart. Available on the 562 XP is the latest breakthrough feature from Husqvarna, Revboost. This feature allows for acceleration in chain speed over short periods to increase efficiency during cutting, specifically in de-limbing applications. Revboost is controlled by the ignition and enables users to increase to maximum RPMs for about two seconds. It is designed to provide an optimum ratio of power to RPMs without having the engine run wide open for extended periods of time. To make field maintenance easier, both new saws come with captive bar nuts that remain attached to the clutch cover. This clever feature reduces the possibility of losing parts and productivity while on the job.
In addition to these new developments, the 555 and 562 XP also incorporate many proven elements of Husqvarna’s existing professional-grade chain saws, such as:

• Husqvarna’s X-Torq engine technology, which enables the saws to deliver rapid acceleration and high power over a wider RPM range, even under heavy loads. Additionally, X-Torq increases fuel efficiency by up to 20% while reducing exhaust emissions up to 75%, a twenty percent increase in emissions efficiency compared to previous models.

• Husqvarna’s patented AutoTune technology to deliver maximum performance. Sensors check conditions such as outside temperature and internal airflow and automatically adjust the engine’s fuel-air mix to optimum levels.

• LowVib to dampen vibration and prevent operator fatigue.

• Smart Start for easy and fast starts.

• Air Injection to dramatically reduce debris in the engine resulting in smoother operation and reduced wear.

• Magnesium three-piece crankshaft for maximum durability.
  • Features:
  • Air Injection- Allows the saw to run cleaner
  • Smart Start- Makes the saw easier to start
  • Quick Chain Adjuster- Allows the chain to be tightened from the side of the saw
  • Snap Lock- Ables you to take the top of the saw off with no wrenches
  • Easy to work with becuase of the slender nature of the saw and percect balance

562xp Autotune Amazing! July 10, 2012
Reviewer: Sierrawoodsman from Dayton, NV United States  
The first real serious outing for the 562xp I bought from Amicks.The Autotune carb adapted very quickly to the 8000 ft elevation we cut at. I've never had a more positive "first impression" with any saw I've owned or even tried, which is saying a lot . I also own the 346xp,,372xp,372xpw,390xp,395xp,Makita DCS 6401
The 562 has amazing pep / performance. This saw just "sips" fuel and feels so slim , light, nimble, and Fast-cutting w/Revboost. After today the 562 is hands down my new "Go to Saw".
That is if I can get it away from my 16 Year old son. He fell in love with it too!
At the end of the day I congradulated my son on his inheritance of the 6401.."The 562's Mine", I told him.
You will not regret it if you buy the 562xp.
Will run neck and neck with the mighty 372xp in all wood up to 24" Dia. If you couple the powerhead with the 20" Husqvarna Techlite bar it makes for an amazing lightweight combination and perfectly balanced saw.
Cheers and safe/productive cutting guys.
