Steve have a look at my channel, I did a couple of videos doing fair size Beech with 28" and was happy how it ran. Since then I did a job on the muffler and it's better again.

I did see that as im a subscriber!! Do you think it could handle that size bar 24/7 ? is the clutch cover magnesium as some have said?

I wasn't sure you had Steve ! I'm  happy to run it like that all the time and have found that I'm using it more than I would have expected in it's present form bearing in mind the ported saws I have. The clutch cover it came with is a mag-alloy type with the captive nuts but I've since changed to the 390 XP HD type that came with the wrap kit, nothing wrong with the original. When I first got mine it was during the real hot weather and no starting problems and the air filter set up is one of the best around I think and I see they ( Husqvarna) have done the same with the mark 2 550 so I expect to see that on the re vamped 562 ?

Do you think the 572 out cuts your ported  372xpw/375?  just asking as i own one too.

Yes i saw the re vamped 550 with the hi top type air filter never had any problems with them, i think the new husqvarna 59??? will be out before a re vamped 562 imho

I wouldn't say that ! but cut  a lot better than a stock 372 with the new AT it keeps the power on even in tough stuff. On the clutch cover if you did have a problem then a 365-372-390 cover fits just the same.

cheers dave, how do you find the air filtration? do you get many fines through in the carb elbow?

Okay, so i got to use a 572 the other day in some scabby horrible beech and oak around 20" which was the ideal test material for me!! it wasnt quite broken in yet but you could feel the power was always there when you needed it compared to the 462 which has a slight lull when introduced to some wood at full revs but carries on through- its kind of hard to explain!!

Its well built and the rear handle didn't come apart in my hands!!  air filtration is miles better than the stihl, ive owned a 462 for 9 months now and you can notice the weight difference. Overall i think its a more all round saw compared to the 462 which has super fast pickup which is good for snedding but is more suited for softwood.
