Regardless of whether you are a professional user or a demanding landowner, the Husqvarna 500 series chainsaws are extremely ergonomic and aggressive machines, with a compact and low weight design, which includes a narrow body for ease of handling, a centre of gravity close to the front handle for better manoeuvrability and reduced weight in moving components, which reduces gyro forces to improve acceleration and allow better control – making this family of saws extremely responsive.
The range consists of five models; the heavy-duty landowner 555 and 570, and the high performance professional models 550XP, 562XP and 576XP.
Equipped with the tried and tested Husqvarna X-Torq® engine, making the chainsaws as powerful and efficient as can be, by lowering both fuel consumption and emissions while at the same time increasing power. The 500 series also boast the unique AutoTune™ feature, which provides optimal engine performance without the need for manual adjustments to the carburettor, and automatically compensates for different types of fuel qualities, blocked air filter, altitude and temperature.
In addition to this, the 550XP and 562XP are also equipped with the new RevBoost™ technology, which maximises engine acceleration when needed.
Built with classic Husqvarna advanced features
Advanced engine technology aside, the 500 series has been built with advanced features synonymous with Husqvarna chainsaws.
The angled front handle provides plenty of room for the left hand, making felling and limbing applications easier, while the asymmetrical rear handle is perfectly positioned to provide a natural working stance. To make felling tasks easier and improve accuracy, the chainsaws also feature distinct, coloured directional felling marks.
For ease of operation and improved control, they are equipped with Husqvarna’s Low Vib® anti-vibration system, which uses heavy-duty steel springs to separate the handles from the engine, resulting in low vibration levels.
Advanced air filtration is provided by the Air Injection™ system, which removes up to 97% of dust before it enters the air filter, resulting in smoother operation, longer intervals between filter cleans and reduced wear on the engine.
Professional grade durability and performance is maintained with heavy-duty components, including a forged three-piece crankshaft and magnesium crankcase. As with all Husqvarna chainsaws, they feature an inertia activated chain brake, which provides excellent protection for the operator.
The Husqvarna 500 series chainsaws are the most innovative saws on the market today. Husqvarna has compromised on nothing when developing these products to ensure users are provided with the ultimate combination – More power, fewer emissions and no time consuming adjustments, without compromising on performance.
