Nice addition to 550 the 572xp

Recommended Posts

 Took delivery of a new 572xp this evening. 

Got a good deal on the ciber Monday. How are they running for you all? 

Any problems etc? 

Got it with a 24" husqy bar and stihl chain and 20" sugi bar with the new husqy chain.

Looking forward to trying it tomorrow. Nice saw to handle for a 70cc. Feels lighter than it is. 

Well pleased.

The only problem I have heard about is maybe a slightly fragile clutch cover .....?

Funnily enough as I fitted the b&c I thought it was on the light side but I hope it's tougher than it looks.

Are they known to crack or break I wonder?

Have heard a few people saying that they cracked .  I think that a 372 or 390 cover fits though . Think they are a little bit more robust .

That's good to know that the other covers will fit. 

Tbh the 550 does most of my work but was waiting for this saw to come out for a while. When I seen it on sale I jumped on it. 

Be nice for the bigger stuff

Had my 572 for almost two years with a 28" most of the time and it's got a lot of work under it's belt now with no problems. I also run a 500i and prefer the 572 for felling it has a better "feel" to it for my work. Put the C 85 chain on and you will do a lot of work very easily !
