I have seen the 543 and 550 pics by now - the pic of the 550 is as expected, but the 543 pic puzzels me regarding the origin of the design, and makes me sceptical.... ???

As far as I know it is not an official Husky picture, so we don't even know if it is the final product, or if it is a prototype or pre-production saw. Then there is the possibility that it is a Zenoah design, of course.....

I don't like the looks of the 543. Looks like a cheap Poulan to me. Guess a 241 is in my future.

Not a Poulan at all. I do see a little Red Max in there though. Equally discourageing in my book. We'll have to wait and see.

Art I seen this video and thought it fit you to a T.  550xp  Wonder if it will be as nimble as the OE 346 feels.  The NE just feels different and I have no clue why. I even had them both side to side and cant figure out why. Anyone know why the NE feels and handles different then the OE 346?

The little 543XP would be a nice little saw to back up the 338XPT .
9.9 lbs 2.2kw,
I can see in my lineup, 338XPT, 543XP, 560/562XP, 272XP,372XP, 576XP-AT, 395XP. 8)

Did I forget the T540XP ? :D

Same max power rating as the MS241 and the PS421 (higher than the PS420), but a bit short of the ol' 242xp. A little less weight though, specially compared to the 421 - and of course an outboard clutch, that is the only sensible on a saw that size.   ;D
I am not really interested in saws this size though, as the weight is too close to some 50cc saws imo.

Thats the great thing about saws. They build something for everyone. As great as the 555/560/562s are I have no desire for one of them. A 543 however gets my attention bigtime.
