They've been commonly available about a year and most have been very reliable

The 562 is a lightweight and powerful 60cc class chainsaw with the auto tune feature. It is very economical on fuel.

It is not as powerful as a 372 but is lighter.

I must agree it is not quite as powerful, think about it 72cc v 61cc.

However I have got to say this saw will hold its on against a 372 unless you bury the full 20" or 24" bar length.  The beauty is if you keep good fresh fuel in this and let it warm up then run it like you stole it, this saw will rock - n - roll.

can anyone tell me about the break in of these saws in the manual it says to run it under a full load for 3-5 minutes without letting up. that just seems like a long time to keep the saw wide open,is that what they mean or am i miss understanding this

Take a piece of log that you cut. Say 18'' long. Stand it up like your going to split it. Then cut it from top to bottom. That should take 3-5 min to cut.
