Husqvarna 562xp Mk2?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Decided I want a 562xp, but was told I should wait until the mk2 comes out. Anyone know If there is any news on a 562xp mk 2? Is it worth waiting for?

If the same difference applies as on the MK2 550 then by all accounts I would wait .

There is no mark 11 for the 560/562 just up dates, new crankcase, air filter and yet another change to the main bearing cages.

Same as me then. I've not used the 550 much yet though.

 

Did consider a 562 just for the smaller frame and to add the ¾ wrap handle, but there's not enough difference in size and weight from the 572. Also, i've probably bought "enough" saws by now anyway.

 

If i bought the 550 or 572 new i would've opted for the XPG, but they were used. You can retrofit all the heated gear anyway, so may do that at some point if i need it.

You can retro fit the heated handle kit but the price would mak it non viable, generator, flywheel, top handle, switch kit, rear heater pad and wiring.
