I'm kinda interested in the 562 if it ever makes it out. It sounds like it will be a strong light weight firewood getter.

555/562 have been scheduled for a second quarter release for a while now, and that isn't quite here yet. I didn't have to turn in my 560 sample until late last year. (Hated to give it back) All of those saws had to go back to Sweden for tear down and evaluation, so production wouldn't begin until after that was completed.

I would think that the 540 is a ways out yet. It's not in the 2011 catalog, but the 555/562 are. I'm supposed to get a 540 sample soon, like I did with the 560 last year. If they follow the same script of letting the samples get beat up for six months, and then call them back for testing, we won't be seeing production for a while.

As I said in another thread, the 562 is probably the first saw I've been excited about in a long time, but I'm hedging my bet until they are run for a while after the other problems we've seen with the 5 series saws.
But if it is the saw they say, how cool would it be if someone came out with a 22" bar? Split the difference if you will. I like to run an 18" on a 50cc, but most times a 25" is pushing a bit with a 60cc saw and the 20" doesn't balance right and the saw should easily overpower it. A 22", just enough reach, good balance, long enough for most all firewood duties, yeah, it's good to dream.
Remember, the answers you receive are worth exactly what you paid for them!

Windsor makes a 22" in the large mount.  Takes a 76 driver chain.

Here the T540xp is in the 2011 catalog, but none of the new 60cc saws are.
It looks like we will have the 560xp here, and not the slightly heavier 562xp - time will tell.....

Well here is my 1st post here!  :) Good job starting this site Kevin. Lots of familiar well respected names here.

I have run 22" Windsors on my 372, 576s for years, excellent match for these saws. But the most fun I have had is running a 14" Windsor Speed Tip on my 372, cut and piling small-medium spruce/ jack pine.
A 22" Windsor may have a little off balance issue for the lightweight 562XP.  A 20" Oregon Pro Lite laminated bar may be the way to go for the 562. Only downfall is  the non servicability issues with the laminates.

I can't wait to get a 562XP myself. Seeing they are coming with AutoTune will be a nice feature. I have 3 AutoTune 576s which are dedicated to a local chainsaw competetion I put on once a year. I just finished the latest one on Feb 19 and 2 of the 576s I sent back to Husqvarna to get fixed. One of them has a throttle linkage problem where the dual linkage on the 2 barrel carb gets kinked and only 1 linkage works and the saw runs really rough. The other 576 will die while idling after some steady use. I blame it on the NGK plug but its best to get the AT checked out just in case.
When you have a thousand people in the audiance watching while these saws are acting up is not good PR for Husqvarna.
 I bet the Stihl guys were laughing. My local Stihl dealer used to be my sponsor since day one almost 30 yrs now, but I switched to our local Husky dealer 2 yrs ago because of the Stihl guys constant whining and not wanting to spend alot of money on the competition.
