    I have one.

    Its awesome. At first I was having starting issues, but once I got my head around the technique its a pretty good starter.

    Lots of power and real light and flickable.

    I have a Husky Model 51. Its only a 16" bar.

    The 562 destroys it in acceleration and power. Plus its lighter and narrower. And feels better in the hand. XP saws rule

    I have a 20 on the 562 and it pulls it no issues.

    NEver ran either saw. But based on what I have read elsewhere and other specs, I dont think you will notice an appreciable difference in power between a 361 and a 562.

    Nice pile. Wood is real hard to get here, 6 week wait or more!!

    As LD says though, you might not notice a huge difference with the upgrade. The 2 saws are almost equals. I havent ran a 361 but did run a MS362 of a friend, and prefer my Husky. Plus he has had his share of issues, much of which wasnt covered under warranty even though he should technically be in the warranty period!! Hes had a couple sub-$100 bills on what is essentially a new saw.

    If your looking for a slight upgrade to replace an older saw, youll be real happy with the 562

    I've run saws for 36 years and the 562xp is by far the most impressive stock saw I've ever run. Smooth, slim, light and fast! It will cut a little faster and have a little more power over the ms361. Had a 562xp for close to 3 years now. Easy starting and No problems!
