Asked Bob about it, he can't find anything on HVA nor has he seen the piston problem.

If husky is dissecting saws to figure out what is going on with ones sent back. I doubt anything has been out on SB's etc. JMO I dont care one way or another.

But understand why dealers and husky wouldnt want stuff getting out. It would hurt bottom line sales.

I'm starting to remember that thread now, but some how must have missed the ring locator issue?

Lost the ring keeper pin let the ring spin around and caught the exhaust port and wasted the piston and cylinder.

The saw you got in came from the NY NJ area didnt it?

I was just thinking. What are you guys talking maybe 10-15 saw failures out of how many maybe thousands sold.   Just like anything new IMO even cars first 2 years you work through the bugs and do upgrades when needed.

Many of folks have no problems from these saws, stock and ported. 

If I had one I would run them like I stole and not worry. 

I would imagine firefighting guys are putting saws through hell during their burn work.  Most probably dont know when something is wrong and just keep running the pizz out of them.  Just like the guy I loaned a 60cc saw to  while I was working on his 310. The impulse line came off and he new something wasnt right, but ran it at half choke and continued on. When I got the saw back it was scored up.

Right after that happened to you, I watched my DIL's father run her plastic 45cc Homelite with a plugged filter and with the choke "ON" until it wouldn't run any more. He wouldn't quit. I kept saying lets put it on my truck and I'll put a new filter on it. He ran it until he couldn't get it to run any more.

When I got it home and replaced the filter, it seemed fine though. Probably because the saw is not such a highly tuned device?  It never run more than about 7000 in the cut even when new.

I know of a LOT of cooked 560's, don't get the 562 here.

There is a bunch of corrections and changes in 560, but it still won't do.

I think the engine type is the cause. They run lean with symptoms of airleak.
Heat development that cause a bunch of things.
Cooked top ends, broken cranks, cases etc

the 562 I'm cutting with is the first 562 I ever got and the piston is cut to hell in it .080 above ring land , side ports inlarged a ton and motor screams hard all day long and no problems of any kind , in this heat it runs alot better than the carb saws, I have not seen or ever heard of a piston problem up here nor has Red ever said anything of a problem as he has sold a ton of 562's , biggest problem is the carb setup but once you figure out how to make them run proper that is not a problem either . I NEVER use the decompressure of any 562 or 365/372xt ever

I'm keeping a ported 357xp around, but would rather run the stock 562xp, as it cuts faster. I ain't worried at all.  ;D
