562XP (2020) and 555 (2020)
« on: October 20, 2020, 08:18:30 am »
I see the Husqvarna US web site is showing a 562XP and a 562XP (2020) as well as a 555 and a 555 (2020).  Are these just the cooling modifications, or did that come earlier and these have other changes? Can someone tell me what the changes are?

From what guys really in the know have been saying, while not a total redesign like the 550 MK-II, they're vastly different. Pretty much a new saw. Case, crank, bearings, filter setup and others. Some parts will however interchange with the older saws, the filter system on old saws can be updated with a few parts.

Thanks. I was disappointed that the 550 Mark II seems to have gained a pound with the update. Apparently the 562 did not.

The 562 has gained a measurable amount weight throughout it's lifespan.

I don't doubt it, but the weight specs at least for this last update to the 562XP (2020) didn't seem to change (not that their specs are always honest).

They updated them awhile back. And yes most of the specs in the husky site are not accurate.
