Husqvarna 550xp MK2

Recommended Posts

So, after quite a large amount build up and fanfare, Husqvarna finally unveil their ‘New Generation ‘ saws.

They are the 545xp and 550xp Mk2.

I was rather hoping for something a little more special like the replacement for the 390/395 series, the rumoured 592xp, or maybe even some new development that rivals Stihl’s 500i saw.

Might not be all bad if the improvements on the mark 2 550xp are as good as the improvements made with the 346xp, annoyingly bought two 550’s last month though.

Yeah, it was released about 3 hours ago.

I can't find anything on google. I was of the impression that the MK1 550/560ss were the one with all the carb issues from a couple of years ago. Mk2 being the upgraded computer/carbs or whatever it was that made them stop being shit!

Anyone got a link of any info on the new 550?
