Remember to scream the 550 out of the box.

I'm waiting for the delivery of a Jonsered 2253 from the states any day! (HUSKY 550XP clone) better be good or my saving will be spent on the diagnostics software!

When my 560 came back from Husky having seized it was transformed, no hot start issues, just refuel and pull the cord. 12 months later by and large its still pretty good not that it gets a lot of use, it is a bit hesitant when picking up sometimes.

Isn't it the exact same saw but red and looks slightly different?

I would not use any saws but 550's/560's... best saws I've ever used, the 560 makes a 70 cc saw redundant its that good.

The 550 is almost as good as a 254 which is a bold claim i know. If the reliability could be sorted it would be better than 254 and it pains me to say it but its true.

 

As for the 560 kill off 70cc saws i guy i use to work with only used 70cc saw till he tried the 570. I know a few other people who have put the 70cc STIHL and Husky to the back of the shed for the 560 too.

 

I very interested in getting myself a 550 size Dolmar and then do a review of the three.
