If you’re looking to upgrade your chain saw, and are interested in getting a lot more power than your average lightweight homeowner’s model, a Husqvarna 575XP might be just the saw for you. Here are the pros and cons to this powerful but manageable chain saw.

Log Cutting Power

The Husqvarna 575XP was designed to be a professional chain saw. It’s a big saw at around 75cc displacement and can handle a bar up to 36 inches long. However, it’s easy-to-handle design makes it a nice option for the home owner that does an above average amount of cutting.

With a saw like this, you could have a 20 inch bar for most of your work around the house and then switch it for a big 36 inch bar when you hit the woods to stock up on your firewood.

Strengths of the Husqvarna 575XP Chainsaw

The power this Husqvarna exhibits is amazing. It’ll eat through hardwood like it’s pine, and it has really nice low-end torque. If you need it cut, this chain saw can handle it.

Despite the fact that this heavy-duty saw was designed to be a monster of a workhorse, it’s remarkably easy to handle.It has spiral steel springs separating the comfortable handles from the engine which means lower vibration on your hands.

The Husqvarna 575XP has X torque technology. That may sound like a bunch of sales talk, but what it means for users is a 20% reduction of fuel consumption. That’s good for both the environment and your wallet.

Key Weaknesses

One of the main weaknesses of the Husqvarna 575XP is that, due to its size, it can get rather heavy after 4 to 5 hours of use. This is hardly a deterrent for the professional logger, but might be a concern for the weekend woodcutter. However, if you break up your cutting times in smaller chunks, you should offset this weakness.

Another concern has to do with the air cleaner. Despite an air injection system, the 575XP’s air filter tends to block up more quickly than other chainsaws. Fortunately, Husqvarna made the air filter on these machines extremely easy to change. You may have to change air filters more often, but that’s a relatively small expense and is probably a fine tradeoff for all the benefits you’ll get from this tool.

A Nice Chainsaw Upgrade for the Homeowner

A Husqvarna 575XP is a never-say-die type of chainsaw that will keep going long after a professional replaces it for a newer model. You can get a great deal on a used one and it’ll continue to provide you high-powered value for years to come.
