I was in at my Husky dealer first thing this morning and asked about the 560/562XP. He has no price list yet but will get me one when available. The latest info from Husqvarna is that it will be the 560XP and 562XP for Canada , the 555 seems to be deleted. The 560XP is 11.8 lbs [5.4 kg] 4.7 hp. The 562XP is about 1 lb heavier and the same 4.7 hp with a larger airfilter and large mount b/c. I picked the 560XP which has almost the weight of a 346, more power then the 357 and almost the power of a 372. Plus rumor is that it will be cheaper in price then the 562.
 
I'll keep a 22" b/c on my 372 and 16" on my 560.

Looks like a good saw. I have been looking half heartedly for a saw between my 394xp and my 455 as my main go to saw that 560xp may just be the saw for the job. I was really considering a 372.

 everyone needs a 372. In my worksaw lineup the 395-32" does the heavy bucking, felling extra large stems and lowers those big stumps. The 372-22" or 16" is my main saw and the 346-16" and 338XPT-13", MS200-14" do the light stuff.
I want to replace the 346 with the 560 and use the 346 for backup. :)

Supposedly, this is the second week of production for the 562 for North America. I'm still unsure if we'll be getting both the 560 and 562 in the states. Personally, I'd prefer to see the small mount set up, especially if there's a weight difference.

Given a choice between the two mounts, which one would you guys prefer?

Willard on the weight thing I am seeing posted.

560xp   11.9lbs PHO  and 562xp   12.3lbs PHO . Where the heck is the extra weight coming from on the 562?

Spike, I really dont count in your small bar or large mount question.  Buttttttt.  ;)

Since it is a saw that I would have used in place of the 357xp I would vote for a small mount for a light weight saw to keep the bars as light as possible too.  That 11.9lbs puts that 560 PHO with just a little more weight then some of my 49cc saws. Very cool.

I would choose the K095 mount. I would run a 15" 8 tooth .325 setup for spruce logging. If I could get it for around $700. Stihl 261 cuts any tree on the wood lots I work, for only $575. 560 at $900-$1000, no thanks.

I generally agree!   ;D

It looks like the weight difference is related to the air filter size/filter cover hight and the bar studs - a bit hard to believe that is as much as .4 lbs though...... :-\

It looks like Canada will get both.  :)

I take it that the 562XP will have the larger standard spline rim sprocket, maybe larger clutch drum, clutch . Of course larger bar studs and crankcase bar pad...everything that the 372-576 would have? Bigger air filter and top cover also.
Every little bit adds up.
