Today we got our hands on the Husqvarna 572XP, from first start it was running in a slightly held back manner however our dealer informed us that this is a "running in setting" on the carb. Just short of a tank of juice it really opened out, cutting full (20inch) bar depth in oak with no real struggles. As far as first impressions, it's light, plenty of power and very comfortable to use. I'm keen to test it next to a 372XP on the same bar and see how they compare, it certainly feels a lot different to a 72. 
After running 550's and 560's we know what to expect with the auto tune and to be honest the 572XP does adjust a lot quicker than the 560's. 

The build quality looks to be of a higher standard than the recent models released, although time can will tell on that front. 

Anyone else got their hand on one yet? Would be keen to hear other opinions!

 

We will be putting it through it's paces over the next few weeks and will add the ongoing feedback to this thread.

Looks a really good saw and would also really like to put it against one of my 372's and my 390 as on paper it's pushing up to that sort of performance.

I keep asking the dealer when they are coming and he keeeps saying he’s still waiting ! I’d love to get my hands on one . Did you get it in the UK ?

Yeah we're based in Carmarthenshire, Wales - they should be readily available from the beginning of March apparently.

Are you going to wip out the spark screen or is it a must on the site you are working ?
