Title: Husqvarna 572 565 590
Post by: Cut4fun . on December 10, 2012, 01:11:31 pm
With 570 575 576 already used what are they going to call the 372 replacement with the 562 550 autotune class saw? I'm going to guess they are going with husqvarna 572xp.

They are out there in several different people hands being ran right now. So far all I have read  is good feedback just like the 550 and 562.  Stronger then a XPW one said.

Be interesting to see a 572xp if it feels as good in the hands as the 550 does and see if the weight is kept down too.

Kevin you have to stop teasing us. :D Please post some information what you've heard through the grapevine.
 Sounds very interesting, what is Husqvarna gonna do , make the 575-576 non XP?

Maybe husky will just discontinue the 570/576 when this comes out along with the 372. Unless they keep wanting to use the 372 as a selling point with the number I would think it would be a 572xp.

If they take the fresh air engine out of 372 and put in the active ignition they will have a good strong saw.
I hope they quit that X-torq/strato thing, it isn't doing anyone any good except cost a lot of money.
But it would still be a 372, just as it is now. Perhaps 373 would be a better more correct name then.

I bet you had to translate those searches on the net to English :D
I'm thinking if Husqvarna was field testing a new 70cc prototype saw it would be done close to home, like Sweden, Finland or Norway. I'm sure some of those end users would have lot's to talk about.

The only negative I have heard is that they will continue to use an inboard clutch on the 70cc saws...

Test saws arrived in the USA quite a while ago - they test in different conditions around the world.

Mangus,  I haven't heard or read anything bad about the Husqvarna X-Torq/Stratos other than it takes them quite a few tanks to break in.

It is more that it isn't a very effective way of saving the environment, as the emission and fuel consumption improvements aren't really substantial. At the moment it is good enough to satify the EPA though....

Personally I don't complain as long as it results in lighter and better performing saws - but that is far from always the case... ;)

Nothing new there, but as far as I know the new 70cc saw will have an inboard clutch, unlike the 560/562, which likely takes something away regarding handling. I have no idea about the cc or power rating.

Next fall at the earliest. The saws that are being replaced, (372XT and 576), are both EPA compliant. So, there is no need to hurry this to market.

Reading that it has an inboard clutch should not be a reason to draw automatic conclusions. Picking it up might reveal the saw to be a great handler. The 372 has an inboard clutch and people don't complain that it handles poorly. The impact of clutch location on a larger frame 70cc saw is different than on a smaller frame 50cc saw.

Interesting reading,,,,
Guessing the USA and other countries are testing all the new prototypes in the field, same here in Australia.
A very certain few here test and report new products over several months in different environments.
No one sees the saws or hears anything about them because the test pilots are not allowed to discuss or show new prototypes.
If a test saw is stolen or word gets out amongst the industry of new products about to be introduced, that test pilot will be removed from the program forever.
Its a prestigious thing to be asked to test new products by major manufacturers such as stihl or Husqvarna and not taken lightly by the very few who are privileged to do it.

I suspect you are right about that, but they are holding the cards really tight this time!

I agree that the impact is smaller than on smaller saws, and the bar that is on the saw surely is a factor.

However, lots of people have said that they prefere the handling of the 272xp over the handling of the 372xp, and I am sure that is caused mainly by the outboard vs. inboard clutch!  ;)

I'll be the first to admit I like my 272's handling over my 372. I like limbing and bucking big hardwood with my 272XP and it's nicely balanced inside centered b/c sure is nice to work with. The bulkier wide spread to the right 372 b/c makes me feel like I'm all thumbs ha ha.
But since I got my 562XP with outboard clutch I have since put my 272 into retirement, hoping one day to get it full race modded.

Interesting comment from someone I respect. Many of my customers have also left the 70cc world and are running 562's. This may or may not happen in a given area depending on the size of the timber being cut. But we are hardly a small log area and the trees are 2/3 hardwoods and the rest pine and soft maple. But either way, the 562 is really getting a following.

I could well imagine the trouble it will cause if pic's are posted on prototypes, especially a new design the opposition does not have.
A couple of things on the subject I do know is,,,,
..The major manufacturers are spending big on new designs, they are also buying technology from other smaller manufacturers for ideas which they are adding to their own concepts.
..Sample saws are being built (without a patent) and tested in countries with the potential to sell the product.
..Some work well, some do not, some need adjusting or tweaking etc. etc.
..Some test well but are shelved for the future, for various reasons.
..Test saws are meant to be worked hard in the every day practice it is intended for, it the saw breaks for what ever reason, its no worry to them as they can look at how to rectify the problem. And so it goes, getting hours on the machine and reporting on its progress, then they recall them and strip them to assess the wear.
.. There are a lot of factors considered when a new product is introduced globally and sometimes they are tested in 1 country 1st.

Here in Oz, stories go round all the time in the timber industry, blokes yap on about this sort of stuff. Some times the bush grape vine is right, mostly its not.

I've seen a picture of the saw as it was accidentally setting amongst several other chainsaws in the background of a picture. But there was no detail. None of this really means anything as between then and when the saw is finally introduced, there will likely have been many changes. Likewise, what these people would have to say about the new chainsaw would be meaningless as the example was not a production model. We'll just have to wait and see what comes out.

I agree, talk is just talk, my guess is it can be something if it come from the wrong person to start with and others add a little.
I'm also guessing a test saw isn't even given a name at that point just perhaps a test number. (guessing that of coarse)

an example of bush talk,,,,
years ago (here in oz) when the 394 was a very popular log falling saw, a bloody lot used them including myself, the 3120 was my 1st choice in old growth.
Some where along the line, talk started on a new husky coming out, better, smoother, bigger and most of the talk was about a new 3120 with more power. This was thought (by some know all's) in response to the new stihl 088.
When the new saw did finally arrive it was not a 3120 but a 395. We still have the same old 3120, which as every body knows has not changed much since it introduction.

I was at a husky dealer today and he was talking about some prototype 572s that husky had sent him to try he said that they worked good and were less weight than a 372xt and would out cut them I was Wondering if anyone on here had tryed one of these prototypes yet and if they had how they liked them. He said that there was no word on how long before they would be able to be bought but I would definitely like to try one when they are available

There is no doubt that an outboard clutch makes a better handling saw, provided the designer of the saw knew what he was doing, and why! Husky designers do know. ;)

Well the replacement to the 372XP is on my 'just buy it' list! Do not need another saw but have to learn about the new saws before a customer comes in with one. I wonder if there will be a new version of the carb firmware specifically for the larger saw. Logic says yes but who knows.

Spike60 when you get word they are on the way set one aside for me!

Quote from: leak
the newer husky that nobody has seen yet is all orange with a silver clutch cover :D the clutch cover looks identicle to a 372 one too so making the saw all orange might be possible. ;) the one i ran did not have captive bar nuts and looked to have the same large dawgs as a 372 as well. the bar nuts looked out of place though so it is a possibility that the captive ones fell off and was repaired with the old style. it's gonna be a saw that will make everyone forget the 372
fact of the matter is that i have seen and ran the new husky while everyone else here is just left wondering :D ya'll won't be disappointed though. i'm tempted to just start selling off all my other saws right now cause that's the only saw i need once it's in my possession.
it was pulling a 36" no problem. to be honest though, a 372 pulled full skip around a 36" pretty good in our woods too but this one did it far better. i can't wait.
 the day before a ran that prototype i ran a 562 building a heli pad. it's really hard to compare though as the 562 was setup with a 24" and the mystery saw setup with a 36". the 562 did have a very minor hesitation issue but the mystery saw did not. the 562's hestation was dealt with by **** revving it all to hell.

Yes.  Here in the US they were imported/sold for a short time, and then recalled.  Supposedly they were going to be available again in September of this year.  Didn't happen.  I know a guy that demo'd a pre-production 661 for three months a while back.  After that, he ordered a production saw....................and they were recalled right when his arrived at the shop.  He's still waiting.  That's a long time to be out $1K-ish for a work saw.....

once your stihl distr. sells the remainder of the 660's you will get your 661's , its just a normal game they play but they know the 661 is better than the 660s so better sell thou 660s first or they will be stuck with them

As the 550 is the 562's little brother, this is the big brother. No word on when yet. They're taking their time. It's not right to think of it being late or delayed. But guys have started a countdown on something no one was supposed to know about, so that impression is to be expected.

Post by: Cut4fun . on July 02, 2015, 10:14:04 pm
Neat info on a 572 590. All copy pasted below. I saved the pic of a suppose rear handle but after reading this.

Just dropping in to let you guys know that you guys don't even know how sweet this new saw is. The rear handle pic IMO is likely not legit as the one I've ran a few times now was stripped of all stickers including the serial tag and looked to have never had them. Probably some kind of protection thing in case one of their testers got sloppy and accidently let the public see it. as a matter of fact i know exactly where the prototype i ran is stashed right now. it's up on a hill on the tree line of a half havested cut block stashed under and old stump in the pissing rain. it's also got nearly 2 years of regular production falling on it now and still runs great. the rep testing husqvarna products has turned out to be a real good friend of mine. he told me yesterday that testing is almost done and apparently alot of guys are already done with their testing. i asked him if he had to kill the saw and he said it's based on hours so if it's still alive after the hours mark it'll still be a runner. The saw i ran was 70cc class. and that's about all i could get out of him. Even to this day i keep fishing for info everytime i see him and he is careful of what he tells me. He did tell me that there is a 90cc class saw in testing right now too though. The guy is from swedan and is the only guy i know from there.
it looks nearly identical to a 562 but a little bigger and has an orange case. the one i've ran also had a full wrap rather then a 3/4. had no hesitation/stumble at all. one thing i do feel is a need to ***** about is the AV. i never liked the 372 AV because i was to mushy with longer bars and the new saw is the same way. i didn't get to remove the top cover but i'm sure the filter is similar to that of a 562. it did have a grey clutch cover and looked like a basketball shoe if that's what the 562 looks like to you LOL. was a real nice saw to run though and i'm pretty stoked to get one. i was stoked to get me a 661 but after running them both i just decided to wait for the husky.

I call mine a weed wacker or weed eater.
Speaking of weed eater I have read the interesting story from the 1970's /80's of the guy who invented  the gas powered  weed string trimmer with just a tin can and string tied around it. Turned into a huge corporation eventually  buying out Poulan.

First string trimmer I came in contact with (in 1977-1978 or so) was the corded Black and Decker machine that my Dad bought.  Think it's still in the garage somewhere.  It has a spoked wheel that the line is laced around.  If I find it I'll snap a pic...

Post by: Cut4fun . on July 12, 2015, 06:12:45 pm
copy and paste info. No clue how accurate.

Although most of us lawn & garden power tool historians can credit the Houston, TX entrepreneur George C. Ballas, Sr. for the invention of the Weed Eater string trimmer, which he'd invented in 1971, something contradicts this claim: Black & Decker made its first electric grass trimmer in 1970 (model #8200).


(link to Popular Science, May 1971) https://books.google.com/books?id=ngAAAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA135&dq=Black+%26+Decker+8200+trimmer&hl=en&ei=fBVFTfHaJov6sAPFvJiOCg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CEAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=Black%20%26%20Decker%208200%20trimmer&f=false


(Link to Popular Science, August 1971) https://books.google.com/books?id=9wAAAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA100&dq=Black+%26+Decker+8200+trimmer&hl=en&ei=FRNFTdjoOJKWsgOwz_2vCg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CEQQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=Black%20%26%20Decker%208200%20trimmer&f=false



But unlike Ballas's invention, which he'd devised using a tin can, fish line and a blade from an edger, B&D's earliest portable grass trimmer still relied on steel blades that its edgers had used. It was around 1976 that B&D had produced and sold its first nylon-line grass trimmer, model #8205. The following year, B&D introduced two bigger sized string trimmers with 10" and 12" cutting swaths (models 8207 and 8209 respectively; both have automatic-feed devices so you don't have to stop to take out more line).

Ballas's idea for his Weed Eater was inspired by his visit to a car wash. Those nylon brushes spun against his car window with no damage. He decided to grab an empty popcorn can, punched holes in it, threaded the fishing line through them, and replaced the steel blade of his gas edger with the popcorn can. The first model was powered by a 2-cycle gas engine, but one customer, an old lady, didn't like its size, so Ballas then made an electric version of his invention. He sold his Weed Eater company to Emerson Electric in 1977, which in turn merged with Beaird/Poulan in 1986.

Post by: Cut4fun . on July 16, 2015, 06:59:24 pm


WC = No idea man, the one I ran was stripped of all ID. It really was just a big 562 with an all orange case. IIRC it still had the silver clutch cover though. Ran a 36" and still light pretty sweet for 70cc. It really is hard to gauge performance without having them side by side but I don't remember it running any better then a 576 other then it seemed to have rev boost or some stuff. cause it was zippy limbing but the 576 is a good limbing saw as well.

WC = The one I ran had the classic warm up bog like the 550/562 but it goes away in a 30 second warm up and was flawless the rest of the days. Just imagine a 562 only a little bigger. It for sure isn't built on the same case. Same case design but bigger. What gave it away when I first saw it was the muffler and orange case but it took a while for me to realize it. I at first thought in my head " this mad mans running a 36" bar on a 562?" Caught on as soon as I got a better look. Muffler is exact same as 550/562 only bigger too. I'm sure they won't interchange. If for some reason it was a 590 holey crap and chit that's the lightest 90cc saw I ever held. Lighter then a 372 for sure. Buddy called it husqvarna's secret weapon. I believe him as even though the power head is larger then a 562 it don't feel much heavier. The selling point of it will likely be power to weight as if it was much stronger then a 576 I think I would notice right away. He expected me to be another person who wouldn't ask questions. He turned beat red when I started questioning what the saw was. I know a little more about it but he has turned into a friend of mine. Kinda shouldn't have said what I already said LoL fact of the matter is, I'll own one the day they hit the dealer shelves

Your welcome, there is a pic of it further in being held by a operator felling a spar with a pull rope.
Beefy looking saw for a 70cc class. Unless they skipped right up into the 390 class.  But I think thats doubful .
Must be more pics amd info of it out there from the list of countries that Ed Carpenter stated.

Spike60 = An interesting item was uncovered today by Onan in the Husky EPC, (electronic parts catalog). Seems there are 2 new model entries in there. The new IPL files won't open yet, but the model numbers are now listed on the saw page: 565 and 572XP/XPG

Post by: HolmenTree on May 11, 2017, 09:48:13 pm
That's really interesting, kudos to Spike 60!
Looks like the 572XP and the Stihl MS462 will be out about the same time. But I have a funny feeling the 462 will be lighter  and more compact if that Husky on the above picture is the 572.
Even though the lady holding it is tiny, that saw looks more like a 88cc compared to the 562 or 550 whatever it is next to it.
We just may have proof of a 590XP in the works ;D
Title: Re: Husqvarna 572XP?
Post by: mdavlee . on May 12, 2017, 06:11:44 am

Post by: HolmenTree on May 12, 2017, 08:47:30 am
A 590/595XP for sure I need, then my low hour 395 will just make a permanent home on my 36" Alaskan mill.

But it would definitely be a toss up between the 572XP and the MS462, might just have to get both :D

At this stage in my life these would probably be the last saws I'll ever need to buy again.
One more saw in my needs, a MS241C with 16" 63PS.....

NOT ME.  Just read this.

Talked with a Husky rep today for several minutes. He says there is a 572xp in development. It will be AT but they are going to great lengths to make damn sure and certain there are no bugs when it goes to market. The 372xp has been a solid work horse for them for a long time and they have a very loyal 372xp following.
He said it is likely the 372xp and 572xp will be joint offering for at least 12 months just incase the 572xp isn't up to snuff.
Once the 572xp comes out the 576xp will likely no longer be offered.

He was also familiar with porting saws and says that hes heard of some pretty spectacular and fun gains out of the 372xp from porting.

Visited about some other models as well.

Husky is also working on a new model that will replace the 390xp and 395xp.

Saving info from chainsaw repair group =  I am a member of the Husqvarna dealer council and I talked to one of the guys while at corporate in Charlotte several months ago and the next generation should be out in less than 2 years. Hoping for this year. 595xp will be sick. They will make the 395's and 372's for about a year alongside the new big 5 series saws. The remaining 395s are also being made in Brazil. Have sold 10 of the made in Brazil 395s so far 0 issues.
Sadly the 3120 may disappear in a number of years. Currently no plans for a 5 series 3120.

Same hp as the 576 (4.3kw/5.7 hp)
Doesn't appear to show weight in the specs.
Be nice if it's a big block 562 with a larger fuel tank and still in the 12 pound range.

14.5 is pretty heavy for a 70cc saw. Old edition 372 was under 13.5 .Same with the old school 044.
New MS462 is 73cc and under 13.5

All of my OE 372 were 14.4 range. Even though paper specs said 13 range.

My first Husqvarna is my 2006 372XP. Still going strong but never was my favorite saw.
Will have to blow it out clean with empty tanks and weigh it.
If I remember correct my 272XP was close to 13.5

If those 572 weight and hp specs are correct the MS462 may just be my favorite new 70 class saw......

Post by: HolmenTree on June 19, 2017, 10:52:19 pm
My 272 is brand new. Shouldn't have 3/4 lb of crud throughout it ;D
Saw weights are based on a saw off the assembly line before run up. No fuel in the fuel lines, carb. No chain oil ever put in it. Some weights are without dogs and other accessories on the saw.

Not all models are equal in weight throughout the years. Brother had a Jonsereds 670 that was a first year early unit off the assembly line it was a half pound lighter then the later units.

My early first year 064 was 14.1 lb  then the 064 ballooned almost a lb by the next year.

The early 272 like mine without the decomp were lighter too from what I was told after the 268XP transition.
So I guess I better dig it out of storage and weigh it. :D

Member that weighed the 272 said it had inner outer spikes, but no crud =   Doubt those spikes weigh a 3/4lb   :D

272 XP PHO, drained all the fluids and ran saw till it was dry of fuel.   Cleaned up all the debri around the clutch and the clutch cover.   Has double bucking spikes.

Is that early non decomp 272?
Still haven't weighed  my early 272, my tree removal business is presently at WOT.  Working solo all day and doing estimates after supper.
My winter off seasons from now on will be dedicated to a chainsaw sharpening business and will be a Oregon sawchain and accessory dealer. No fixing saws.
I have enough inventory already of b/c and sprockets to get rid of.

Here's a few pics from today . My favorite saw, my low hour 2008 395XP with 36" .050 .404 Oregon 50AL chisel bit chain.
I still got 30 feet of new 50AL and a little over 20 feet lightly rocked out.
When I aquire a couple loops of some Stihl. 404 High tooth chain I want to put those High tooth cutters on a loop of this 50AL chain.
Only need to find some Oregon .058 .404 presets if any one can help me out.
Thanks.

IMO it dont really even matter. Most of us already know husky used to lie about their paper spec weights anyways.

Looks at the OE 346 and 357 weights  (owned both). They both weighed more then stated too.  IMO something written on paper by factory with weights can be used to wipe our azzes with.  ;)

JMO stihl seems to be more accurate with their PHO weights on paper.  When checked with real weights by owners.

But husky has seemed to gotten alittle more honest with it since the newer saws has been coming out. All JMO

Yes me three. With the recent intro of the 462 and now the 572 we have a real reality show to watch now.
Just as I predicted the model numbers turned out right , also interesting new X chain Husky introduced with a Stihl design incorporated haha.

I like the setup of the 572 and all its new upgrades. I'm sure there's no longer a fast idle indent on its master control switch like what the new MS261-MS462 have.

I just got anothet new 550XP yesterday and first tank of fuel I still had to set the fast idle for it to start after heated up.

The X chain will definitely partner the 572's performance something Stihl probably already has in the works. They pretty well have out done everybody with all the different chains they developed already.

I still think the 462 if it's as light as they say is will be a 73cc saw I want to make a living with.
And with the mini 462 (MS261C) I'm running right now I see a bright future for the 462.

 CP from article Husqvarna 565

Along with 572, there is also a Husqvarna 565 chainsaw in the PDF. This saw seems to have the same block as the 572 but is not an XP saw and has less power compared to 572, 3,7 kW @ 9300 rpm.

I forgot about this email I got back in April from a former training company I used to train with.
What looks to me what the young woman is holding is a very high top new saw. Smaller saw looks like a 562XP.
Anyways I'm sure Ed Carpenter had lots of information on the saw.

And here someone on another site said the 572 wasn't going to make North American shows in 2017. Unless I was mistaken and he meant Boonsville
Was there any hands on demonstrations of the saw?

good read https://www.forestryjournal.co.uk/media/uploads/cat-288/husqvarna-launch.pdf

This has been achieved, despite a beefed-up
crankshaft and exhaust weighing more,
by reducing the weight of some other
non-critical items such as the top cover,
clutch cover and ignition module.

Husqvarna 565 PHO weight dry. No chain break as it was broken in shipment guy said. 

So add chain brake and suffers for 572 weight.

This just popped up on my Facebook feed an hour ago.
Husqvarna Canada posted this picture of the 572XP and wrote:
"Nothing is as strong as the power of love on Valentine's Day_Except maybe the power of the 572XP. "

So I just got off the phone with a buddy and he says rumors are it's already in the country.
Still not on their site yet.

Bob was saying it looks like August for here and his WAG is retail about $100 more then 372. 


Great video to watch and learn in the shop talk.

Per Bob aka spike60

August time frame and WAG $100 more then 372 retail.

372 will run concurrently for a year along with the 572. So, it should be around through 2019. 576 will go away this year.

572 462 saws that are in US right now (not being SOLD in US yet). Shipped in. XPG weighs 😮. I know the fly etc add weight being heated handles but cant be that much. Randy said it had maybe a few ounces of bar oil in it at best.

We were talking that as big as the 572 is compared with the 390. 
Maybe the 572 with that bigger beefed up crank could be the platform for the 590.  Nate brought this up in the thread at chainsaw repair group a few days ago.

Post by: HolmenTree on July 28, 2018, 06:14:34 pm
Yup put a 87cc P/c on that 572 and you now have a production saw.
390XP looks pretty fat width wise.
Title: Re: 390 572
Post by: HolmenTree on July 28, 2018, 06:18:03 pm
And put the 572 P/C on a 562XP
I wonder how much work to do that?

It appears the 562 has a 36mm stroke and the 572 has 39mm. Which is about 0.120"not very much.
Be interesting to see the 572 and 562 cylinder bases side by side.
