Here's a couple of more pics of my new 550XP.
I bought it last week for a good paying cottage lot clearing contract.
Ordered a new MS261CM originally from my Husky/Stihl dealer but didn't come in on time so I bought this 550.
I already have a older 550, NE346, OE 372, 395 and a 562 but with these kind of jobs I need lots of spares.
Ended up I used only my 562 and for the bigger wood the 372.
Burnt less then a tank of fuel through the 550 because it was too embarrassing to run. Way too cold blooded popping and farting while warming up, so just put it back in the truck and grabbed the 562.
New 550 looks like a beautiful little saw with the upgraded vented cover and flippy caps. H25 NK .325 chain is a perfect match too.
The NE MS261CM did come in so I guess I'll have to go down to the dealer and pick it up. First new Stihl for me since my MS200T I bought about 15 years ago.

My solo operated tree service saw stable will have to be culled. Get rid of the stragglers and just run Husqvarna T536 LiXP,  338XPT,  550XP,  562XP,  Stihl MS261CM.
Along with the old 346 also get rid of the OE372XP, 395XP and replace them either with the MS462C or the 572XP.

Still have to replace its dog with a smooth aluminium bumper I have for it.
