Husqvarna T542ixp.. anyone tried it?


Recommended Posts

Just to jump in quickly. The 540i xp rear handle version has a metal side cover which is night and day compared to the plastic one you get on the top handle. Keep meaning to swap them over on my saws and run it on the top handle

Yeah weird that as they're making all the other X Cut stuff.

The new SP33G chain they're selling as fitted to the new 542iXP (.325 but 1.3G) is interesting plus the fact that the largest bar length offered is only 15" (still 16" on the older 540i and SP21G or S93G chains depending on sprocket change of course).

Pretty sure you cannot , the motor shaft is different, the deeper side cover will fit no problem, I do wonder about using the saw at lower rpm with the additional wait of the clutch, the biggest plus is the extra inertia of the clutch at full rpm.

Using the saw on 'Eco' mode doesn't seem to make much difference clutch wise. However spinning that extra weight up does seem to (surprise surprise..) drain the battery quicker. I notice Husky have some new batteries out folks.
