I guess the 562 should really beat the 357 since it's supposed to have more power than the 555.

I would think if the 562 is ANY stronger than this saw......Husky is in the lead..  I'm on the fence if it is necessary though (for the extra $130).

Just curious, mounted the 24 full ch.

 8) 8) 8) 8)

Watching your video's makes me jealous of the test wood you are able to keep on hand. 

I was thinking that too, IF the 560xp with small mount isnt available in the states.

Not sure what the point of the 560xp is. 

I am fortunate to have near unlimited test wood.  Its easy to take for granted until I see a new visitors face when then see the pile lol.

I did find the saws limit, 32 is a bit much but I'll say this, handles it better than a 365.

What kind of wood was in that video Mitch? I'm thinking if the 562 will handle a 28" bar with semi skip just fine then that does away with the need for a 70cc saw.

Well, I've been drooling over the possibility of a 560 or 562, even though I probably can't justify it for the amount of cutting I do. I may have to consider the 555.

Is the construction on the 555 similar? I wonder how much of a problem that plastic oiler getting hit by a thrown chain is likely to be (as pointed out by mweba in his tear down video).

Talking with guys in the UK tree service in the background. They are having troubles with their 560xp saws cutting out in the bucking cut. Losing power etc and sounding terrible.
Wonder if something to do with rev boost stuff?

They have about 8 560xp doing it so far and have went back to their 357xp and 361 for now.  Not happy campers right now over there. Be interesting to see what is happening.

After messing with the saw since purchased, I see it very unlikely the chain catching the oiler.  Hope I'm not proven wrong.

The 555 and 562 are built on a common platform.  For the most part, the differences are in the ignition, cylinder and carb.  Basically, the 555 is a xp level saw not designated as such.  Kind of like the 359 was considered land owner and 357 professional.  BTW, with just small adjustments to the ports, the 359 will stomp a 357.

No wonder with the 359, as it is "detuned on purpose" - like several other "semi-pro" etc saw models.  ;D
