A high performance petrol chainsaw packed with innovations.
This 18 inch chainsaw boasts Husqvarna's latest technology to offer not only fantastic cutting performance, but also superb ease of operation.
Professional performance in a fantastic package
With Husqvarna's AutoTune system, you can rest assured that your chainsaw will be operating at its best. The engine settings are automatically adjusted based on fuel quality, the condition of the air filter, humidity, altitude and temperature, meaning no fiddly carburettor adjustments by the user. You can expect fast acceleration due to their RevBoost system, with higher chain speed also resulting in improved cutting performance.
Even with this high quality performance, low fuel consumption (up to 20 percent less) and lower exhaust emissions (up to 75 percent less) result from the inclusion of Husqvarna's X-Torq technology.
Straightforward maintenance and built to last
The Husqvarna 562 XP uses a forged three-piece crankshaft alongside a magnesium crankcase that is built to withstand the high rpms that result from heavy professional use, resulting in a longer service life and excellent durability. With air injection also on board, wear is reduced and longer operating times can be expected between filter cleanings.
An adjustable oil pump lets you set the chain lubrication to perfectly match your needs, while the quick-release air filter enables easy cleaning and replacement, and similarly the snap-lock cylinder cover results in less time changing or cleaning spark plugs. Retained bar nuts also keep things simple, preventing accidental loss.
Easy & enjoyable operation
For easier starting and to help minimise the risk of engine flooding, the 562 XP has combined choke and stop control, which is bolstered further by Husqvarna's Smart Start technology, reducing the resistance in the starter cord by up to 40 percent, plus a cleverly designed fuel pump. The chain tension is simple to set with a side-mounted tensioner, while a flip-up fuel tank cap and visible fuel level ensures you can stay on top of managing your fuel.
For reduced vibrations and less strain on your arms and hands, the 562 XP benefits from Husqvarna's LowVib technology, using anti-vibration dampeners to absorb the vibrations before they reach you. For enhanced safety, an inertia chain brake is provided, while distinct felling marks ensure you can work with precision and confidence.
Comes with a 2 year conditional warranty.
