The screnches come with the saw.  If you didn't get one, they are still at the dealer with the service pack (allen wrench, bar tip greaser and something else?)

Yep. Just wasnt thinking of needing the stuff on 545 and didnt ask to make sure was in box. I seen the one that comes with them  yesterday and they dont appear to be  as long or deep as the ones I ordered.
 
The new 550 was on a trade half way across the state.  Did get winter kit with it.



Even when I was buying the 346's local I told him no need for stuff from what I can remember.

Had the 545 out today. It was wearing a 60 DL X 16" X 3/8 Oregon CL square chain. Was a little lean at idle when first started.

Cut like mad in the green wood. The clutch could be stalled if you pressed down on the saw in a buried cut and the saw held very good rpm in the cuts if you let it do its thing.

I didn't intend to do any buried cuts but got roped into it by the neighbor across the street in making a stump chair for his wife. This was really work for a bigger chainsaw?

Eventually, the points were rounded on the square chain teeth and it wasn't lightning fast any more but stihl cut pretty good.

The 545 got a good workout. The temperature was probably 84 degrees? Humidity was like 99% and a thunder storm was nearly on us.

If the algorithms in the chainsaw computer are not adjusted properly now - they never will be?

Did a lot of "HOT STARTS" - no problem - one pull hot starts. Every time, I put the choke "ON" then "OFF" to set the fast idle then pushed in the compression release. "ONE PULL" and she was going again.

I used the 545 again today. First I sharpened the 3/8" square with a free hand file. Gassed and oiled the chainsaw

The 545 started up with a couple pulls with the choke on and then a couple with the choke off and away she went. No lean low speed or anything.

I cut up 4"-6" limbs to firewood length for a while and The 545 ran flawless from the beginning and remained that way. I'm a old guy so I got tired. The temperature was in the low 80's but the humidity was very high. I thought I'd get a bigger saw ready to noodle some of the crotches . . . .

Checked my chain. Looking at the chain, There was little detectable evidence that it had dulled any today. I opened the gullets a little and resharpened the chain and then checked the rakers. I found a couple rakers that were marginally high. The chain is a 3/8" LGX that I made square - first with a Atop and later I ran it through the square grinder. This time I thought I would resharpen it with a file to compare the effort compared to round filing. Square sharpens up as easy as round chain is my conclusion.

I then went on to one of my 365's and touched up the round chain and gassed and oiled this chainsaw as well to. Then company came and that was the end of the chainsaws. Oh well . . . The crotches will be some other day.

Randy settles it.

The husqvarna 545 and 550xp has the same transfer covers and port timing in cylinders, even though different numbers listed. 

Thanks Randy for comparing both cylinders.

Randy said he used a jonsered 2252 and not a 545 cylinder.

Mastermind = Absolutely no difference in the cylinders or transfer covers. I've checked them side by side.

100% sure. Same port timing, same transfer covers. I was told that the transfer covers were different. That's the reason I got the 550XP top delivered to me. But after careful mapping and examination there were no differences anywhere.

Is it possible that the 2252 is different than the 545? I've never compared the 545.

The ones we go were not from Husqvarna. We went by the spark plug and bar nut sizes. seems like 5/8" X 1/2" without going out to measure?

Well I've been kicking around the idea of getting another saw, 543xp or a 550xp. I think I'll just get a 545.  ;D
