562XP / 555
« on: March 22, 2012, 05:01:31 pm »
these two saws are my first out of the box and out the door.
the 562 went with 24" .058 JG oregon chain and powermatch guide bar. 100LL AV gas and mobil 2t syntetic mix oil. aint heard nothin' yet since 1/26/12
the 555 18" .058 LGX  not so lucky. today i just swapped carbs. the original was a EL44B141A. it gave me trouble right from the get go. would not idle.would not restart warm. would only start up cold. i ran 1 gallon of 100LL AV gas mixed with black bottle xp premium mix oil (now called low smoke) thru the saw cutting disc's. did 2 resets,and 1 master reset....no help. then i changed the carb that came on it with a carb husqvarna sent me EL44B147A when i told them of my problem with this saw.now the saw starts great and runs & cuts good,all i did was change the carb.this saw is well thought out and easy to work on (so far) i like the software that come with the hook-up tool you plug into the computer. i'm looking forward to working on these new saws,as they come in for service work because now i know the operator cant "play" with the carb adjustments.and the running info can be downloaded for me to see what the saw has been doing. what do you suppose the difference is between a 141a and a 147a is ???? I took the plug in off the original carb , and put it on the replacement carb-so i would not lose all the info stored in it from the beginning start up. i have pic's of all the downloads i have on this saw that you can see ,   if anybody wants to see them.  i'd like to know how everybody else's experience's of these two saws are. and how the customers like them.






this one is FINALLY ready to go out the door  ;)   ;D

That's way cool. I'd love to play with it, too. Do you need help? <grin>

Mr Greene

It would be very interesting to the rest of us if you could make a "copy and paste" of the data logger output (maybe on the 555) and make comments on the post for us to learn just what information is available. I have a half dozen Huskies but have stayed away from the "5 series" because of lack of knowledge of the computer interface.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

here's the first data download:

there is'nt a whole lot of info that is usefull at this point.now off to the second download:

i ran the saw cutting disc's for about 4-5 minutes at wot the first time let off throttle,it dies and cannot restart un till cold. download no.3:


i have 8 download sheets on this saw plus 2 comparison sheets after performing reset to saw trying to get improvement in running characteristics,without any luck.

i find that side by side sheets easier to read and think about. vs one above the other, like above. i'll post more after you guys have some comments.

Thanks for the nice post showing the data logs of a chainsaw. Looks like our future is going to be different relative to chainsaw service.

Like reading the data file of my pacemaker and the Dr. wanting to know if I was running a chainsaw again on Friday at 9AM.

In my career doing tech support in the "power" industry, I had a front-row seat working the change from analog to digital controls.
IMO, this is the future - smaller, cheaper, more feature-rich, eco-friendly. That being said, there will be occasions when you'll wish for the 'old, hands-on' tech.  Thanks to the poster for the excellent photos and the diagnostic info. Interesting stuff!

I fail to see were it is smaller, lighter or more eco friendly.

It will be lots of saws cooked and that is just recurses waisted. If you look at it from a global point of view, better would be to improve a model in use already so parts and tools/machines can be used for more than one product.

As you are in development, you know how much money and resources it is spent each new model.

There should not be problems like the crap William went thru on a pro grade saw. It is too expencive to spend this much time and effort on to get running. If they knew what problem there was, out with a service bulletin so the dealers know. No point in hiding it under carpet, it just **** people of as all need to learn the hard way instead of one or two, then all know.

Good to hear it is running, William.

On the data output under parameter values, current fuel setting (H/L), do these correspond to percentages?

i'm guessing that the higher the number the richer the setting

Is there a way to tell at what percentage the carb is flowing at wot in the cut? Say like a woods ported saw and if the carb is just about flowing all it can adjust to. Is there a way to tell?
