Lovely saw to use. The lack of vibration is a huge plus. Very well built I can see this saw in my long term future. Keep the saw sharp and basic maintenance up happy days.

The best chainsaw I’ve ever owned
I bought this Husky as a replacement for my previous ‘big’ saw (a Shindaiwa 757) which had an untimely mechanical issue. My first Husky and I am now a hopeless fanboy - it is the best. Same cc as the Shindaiwa - 70 - but cuts literally twice as fast. The saw feels just a touch higher rpm but I think the secret might be the Husqvarna X Cut chain which seems to cut better and last longer than what I was using before (Carlton).
This Husky feels extremely well made with the entire base half being magnesium rather than the usual plastic. Not to...o heavy with good balance and low vibration. Pretty good fuel economy for the size; way better than the Shindaiwa, better than my 50cc Stihl, and about the same as my 35cc Echo (adjusting of course for size but even in absolute terms it’s better than the Stihl). I specifically wanted to get a Husqvarna because I had read good things about their air injection feature which is meant to create a vortex around the filter thus reducing the frequency of filter changes. If this is true and it does reduce filter maintenance then this will literally be the perfect saw. The only downside I can think of is the price, which at $1989 is on the steep side. At the time I bought it though Husqvarna was throwing in a bunch of free gear which was nice. I bought it from Sharps power equipment in Benalla and he put a bit of discount on it too without me asking so he’s got a customer for life. As long as this saw keeps on going like it has done in the past few months I will be a happy camper. We rely on wood for all our heating and live in the mountains so we go through it pretty quick. This saw has made my cutting much faster and much more pleasant. The perfect saw so far!

The 572xp has far exceeded my expectations!
It starts first pull maybe second if not first and have been using it to cut fire wood (ironbark spotted gum and white gum) has not missed a beet out preforms old models with ease! Would recommend to anyone interested in them! Very low vibration compared to old models.
