Bill, not sure I understand your question. However I run 32:1 in all my personal saws also.
Not really a question.  I wonder if the lack of oil (50:1) was a contributing factor in the piston failures.

Does the 555/2258 have the same issue as those 562's? Or do their slightly different top ends avoid the issues? One of the posts prior (Think it was Magnus) implied the engine type might be the issues. What about 550xp's?

At husky dealer I tested 357xp with 20" and 562xp with 20" both filled up ready to use. I couldnt tell abit of difference in the weight of either.  Felt the same.

.....

There isn't much weight difference between the 562xp and the 357xp.

However the 560xp, 2260, 555 and 2258 are about halv a pound lighter (small bar mount, and lower air filter/cover).

Looks like about 5 ounces difference in PHO weight dry between husqvarna 555 and 562

Me I would prefer the small mount and even lighter bar weight, of the husqvarna 555 560xp or the jonsered 2260. What is the 555 version of jonsered 2258?

Thanks for the info... To do over, I'd take the 555 over the 562xp. I also prefer the small mount and 5 ounces less...

The 560xp was the original, and likely should have been the main xp model on all markets.

the problem is a heat problem, the piston is growing faster than a normal piston in a normal saw like a 357, 372 so as the piston heats up to the point where the piston grows more than the steel pin so the pin comes loose , this can be caused by more than a couple things BUT the biggest thing is the muffler is choked off to the point the cylinder is running real hot , just feel the air coming off the flywheel on a stock 562 after a long hard cut , its real hot and in my small mind its to hot to last , my ported 562's run alot cooler than a stock 562

Another good reason to open up the muffler!
