  2. Does anyone know if the 560 has the same lengh crank shaft as the 562 or is it just the 555 that has shorter? Is the change over to 3/8 on the 560 just clutch/sprocket/wormdrive plastic thigimny etc?
  3. Yeah, we ran ours on an 18 originally but for reasons we put an old 28 bar and new chain from a 395 on and were surprised how well it worked, now it's one of our go to saws for in the tree with that setup (actually we fight over it for felling to). Keep thinking about changing our 560 to 3/8 and trying the same on that. Maybe I'll post a video of it if I get time. Actually the other week I 1/4ed a 3m oak log to lift out with it.
  4. I can confirm the 562 rips with a 28 bar. In a pinch we swapped out an old 28 from a 395, never gone back, awesome as a big saw in the tree. She's a weapon.
  5. Hey guys, apologies not been on for a bit. Andy, we often do work up your way might be worth having a chat about dropping off some timber when we are up there? Mike, I'll give you a call.
