    Im really liking the 550, but not if a $250 diag tool is required for ongoing maintenance or minor mods.
    The diag tool is not needed for the 'normal' guy. Only for extreme chainsaw nuts.

    It's a tool to diagnose auto tune saws with problems. Reset computer, etc.

    The reviews on the 562 and 550 sound good. But I must say I am not ready to buy a computerized chain saw yet. Of course I have no desire to buy a tier 4 diesel tractor either. That is precisely why I upgraded several pieces of my equipment, including chain saws, before all this technology is all you can buy. These are tools that I plan on having a good while, I want stuff I can fix most of the problems myself.

    Oh yeah, I understand that. But what is the actual information it can provide?

    Does it give RPM while running? Can it store or generate error codes? Give troubleshooting suggestions? Can you modify the fuel curve?

    Seems to me it would just provide the bare minimums. There are no sensors on the engine are there? Like O2?

    Scoob , I just got the thing today . I'll let you know exactly what it does as I get used to using it .
    But , you don't need one to own and run the 5 series saws , I'm just kind of a dweeb on getting new stuff .
    I can't afford fast cars , airplanes , boats , or women , so I picked up the bad habit of being interested in saws. I'm pretty sure that if they come out with a 590 xp or a 595xp , I'll be sorely tempted . Heck , I'm debating getting a ms460r before they go away even though I don't like the dealer at all . ;-)

    Nixon, I think saws are cheaper than women... A chainsaw cant take half your stuff

    I look forward to the update on the saw computer's capabilities, thanks

    See you already know the right answer if you are married Nixon.. I was married for a long while and not right now so I can get away with the statements.
