One thing I noticed is the tracking of hours at full throttle (warranty considerations?). But I'm really surprised how much adjustment is being performed in real time.

last saturday the problem 555 found a new home. i'll report back the downloaded data it has accumulated when it walks back in.

  i took number 2 555 out of the box and hooked it up to the computer, getting it ready for sale.AND it flunked out too!!! the auto tune unit hooked to the carb did not work.could not hear the "ticking" that is needed to pass test. luckily i had auto tune unit from the last saw job. i put that one on this saw,and it starts good,runs good,and restarts warm good. so its on to the shelf ready for sale.

The "ticking" sound, that a solenoid or stepper motor?  Anyway, frustrating in situations like this. Part of the learning curve for both field forces as well as the manufacturer. One would expect these probs eventually work themselves out.  And valuable experience you wouldn't get any other way.
As for the digital data bus, only a matter of time before the software is hacked and then let the (real) tuning begin <g>

YES!...your right on all accounts.

i just sold 562 # 2   and it fired right up and ran good.restarted warm too.
i wonder why my track record with these two model's is like it is????  i sure am glad that 562 start's right up and run's good in front of buying customer! and as you can see why i get 555 ready before hand. i firmly beleive that anyone buying a new version saw like these saws-is not going to put up with much "running troubles demonstrated to them" ......before they even leave the dealers establishment  :o

i'd like to know more about these saws,AND i'd like to read here about other dealers "stories"
        one "little bit" about this latest version of saw i'd like to share. the "XP" version is much better cutting than non-XP version. always has been.even since i started back in the early 70's.the power to weight ratio certainly is getting much better that's for sure.the package you lug around sure does cut good.

Feel your pain as I, too, have been baffled going word-for-word in the instruction manuals with no luck, only to find-out the instructions were wrong. That happens a LOT more these days than back in the day, the old military and Bell System manuals being especially detailed and precise.
In your case it could be as simple as an improper digital handshake or some such nonsense.
I agree it would be beneficial for all to involve other dealers in the learning curve. Maybe you should re-title and re-post your thread, and post in this and other good forums (Arboristsite, ForestryForum, others).
Good luck!  If I'm up your way I'll stop in for a chat. Steve

we donot even have the 562 up here yet and I know my dealer close to home asked Husky about the programming equipment and husky knew nothing of this stuff nor knew anything about that saw , seems very strange they put out something not 110% tested

thanks for the info, seems that i've seen the same type of comments on different forums. i'm with you on how they market their product(s)
  my own salesman asked "how'd you get that" .....when i was telling him about my first 555 i was having trouble with!!

i sure am looking to see more info / comments in this thread

you looking for auto tune outfit?  pm me if interested

William, when I was demoing the 562 at my dealers. I had ask about the autotune diagnostic tool etc and they didnt have it.   

From what you have shown here. It seems it should be a  must for the dealers to have to set the autotune up correctly with updates etc before being sold.  Do you feel the same way on this?

Agree 100% 

It seems Husqvarna does a terrible job keeping the dealers informed.  The dealer that I purchase my saws from does not have the tool and did not know it existed.  A guy is flying blind without one.
From what I have read, it is not a percentage of fuel flow.  I ran mine with an intentional air leak to search for the limit.  The info is written down somewhere......will do some searching as one of my "notebooks" is missing.

It seems you are having a high rate of failure though.  It is a misconception that these new saws are set/ready to roll out of the box(not saying you fall into this category).  There has been many instances of the metering lever being way to low, causing the saw to accelerate poorly and start hard warm and hot.  Also the pop off pressure is for some reason very high.  I clipped one ring off my 562 and it starts well at any temp.

Why the 100 fuel?  Just curious.   My 562 handles the transition from 87 to 92 flawlessly but vice versa, it takes a tank to adjust.
