    I've had one for a couple of months . So far it's been a great saw . It has a lot of power for a 60 cc saw . Stihl also makes an auto tune saw in the 60cc range (362cq ?) that is worth a look at as well.

    I bought a 562xp a few months ago and love it! Smoothest saw I've ever run and the strongest sub-70cc also. It actually cuts as fast, or faster than many larger saw, but weighs a lot less. I've been running Husky saws over 12 years in a semi-commercial environment (firewood, logging and clearing) and they do very, very well.

    Yeah, I'm very impressed with the 562xp! I also have a 357xp which is the model the 562 replaced, nice saw too, but the new model has more power, weighs the same, is smoother and uses less fuel.

    That said, the 346xp is my all time favorite saw. Have two and they see a lot of use. Small, light and explosive power in a 50cc saw. But the larger saws are nice when the wood gets over 16-18''.


    Cheers!

    The XP models are not supposed to be available for internet sales. But some get around that. I don't think Baileys will ship an XP? It's also good to support local dealers, if they are a good dealer.

    Can't blame you , as that was my choice as well . Just wanted to be fair in my recommendation is all. Of course ,if you want real performance , get your saw ported .
    My 372,390 ,and 044 are. The 346 ,and 562 will be following shortly .
