We had a fleet of 560's were I used to work. And my one was hammered in thinning works for 2 years, few tinkering problems, mainly clutch springs and brake bands but they have since sorted it out. I have since bought my own 560xp. ImageUploadedByArbtalk1435596017.509962.jpg.2835e4e65ef742d7d980aa64b5d08f62.jpg

560 is a big greedy saw for thinnings, that's where a 550 would've came into its own

 

 

I have a 346xp to but I tend to always pick up the 560xp.
