562XP B/C Recommendations
« on: March 09, 2014, 09:12:30 am »
Having just purchased a 562 from Spike60, I am wondering what the consensus is on bars & chain for this saw. What are you all running?

The 20" TechLite was virtually made for that saw, and is the longest I would put on it for regualar use.

I just bough a 20" Tsumura Ligh&Tough for my 560xpg, as the 20" TechLite isn't isn't made for the small mount (yet).

I do not own a 562XP but from what I have seen of them, they seem to be a 20" chainsaw. If I have a need for a longer bar, I have bigger saws with the longer bars already on them.

Anything longer than a 20" bar would make the 562XP unhandy.

OK, Troll, or anyone else, where in the USA can I get a 20 inch tech-lite bar for less than my leg?
