I was at my Husqvarna dealer this morning and had a 540XP in my hands. Looks impressive .......like what the  560 /562 look like.
Not buying one right now , still have a ms200 and 338XPT to wear out........but I'm itching to try one out this 540.

My dealer says he's bringing in a couple of 562XP's in a few weeks, appears his distributer in Edmonton Alberta has some in.
The 560XP won't be available for at the earliest 1 year.

Why do you think Husky would make two saws so close in size? 560 & 562?

I got to run a 555 today. If the 560/2 is much better then It should be awesome. This 555 really impressed me. I'm not usually impressed with the sub 70cc saws but I like this one almost good enough to get one. I'm going to run it a little more in the next few days with a 20" 3/8s if I can find a bar reasonable.

Willard what is the Canadian prices on the 540xp and 562xp ? 

Did they remove the primer bulb on the T540 or is it still there like on prototypes?

My dealer said he'd sell the 562XP to me for $800 plus tax. I didn't get a price on the 540.

I didn't make it into the dealer today and seeing tomorrow is Remembrence Day / Veteran's Day they'll be closed.
Will drop in on Sat. and check if the 540 has a primer bulb and get some prices. He has a 555 in stock also.
 He reasured me yesterday the 562 is at his distributer.

Nikko have you made any extended long cuts with 13" bar buried yet?  Just joking on 13"  part ;) .

 The 560xp's in the UK are giving the guys fits. Missing misfiring (cutting out in the cut) in the cuts and hard to start when warmed up. Dealers there said they dont have the right tools to do diagnostics on the new saws and are throwing parts at them like chips etc to find the problem. Even after changing chips they are still having the cut out problems and hard to start.

Kevin ,I was at my Husky dealer today and he just sold the T540XP a few hrs earlier to a line clearing crew from the big city who are doing work in town.
He'll be getting more 540 s in a short while, then we'll see if it still has the primer bulb.
