TrioBrake adds extra safety to this powerful 15 inch chainsaw.
The 550 XP also has the advantage of Husqvarna's X-Torq engine system, giving powerful yet efficient performance.
Top performance from the X-Torq engine
With its 50.1cc engine and X-Torq technology, the 550 XP benefits from being able to provide more power as and when you need it. Up to 20 percent less fuel consumption and 75 percent less exhaust emissions also make it an efficient saw to work with. Husqvarna's Autotune system allows for optimal engine performance, compensating for fuel quality, humidity, altitude, temperature and air filter quality, without the need for you to perform carburettor adjustments. RevBoost completes the performance package, for fast acceleration and a higher chain speed.
Easy operation courtesy of several intelligent features
The 550 XP benefits from a visible fuel indicator with a flip-up cap for easy refuelling. The chain tensioner is side-mounted so it can be simply and quickly accessed, and the bar nuts are retained so that they can't be lost. Comfortable operation is assured with anti-vibration dampeners used to absorb vibrations and reduce strain, while safety comes from the TrioBrake system, which means the chain brake can be activated automatically using an inertia mechanism or manually with your left or right hand.
Simple starting & excellent handling
This is also an easy machine to get up-and-running, thanks to Husqvarna's SmartStart system. This reduces resistance in the starter cord by up to 40 percent, while it also has the advantage of a fuel pump to facilitate easier starting. With its slim design, felling marks to increase accuracy and combined choke and stop controls (helping reduce the risk of engine flooding), the 550 XP really is a great saw to work with.
Superb build quality perfect for professionals
Using a forged three-piece crankshaft and magnesium crankcase, the 550 XP is a top-quality saw ideal for tough tasks and able to withstand high rpms from professional use. The use of a centrifugal air cleaning system means wear is reduced, with longer operating times between filter cleanings, while general maintenance is made easy thanks to the quick-release air filter and cover, snap-lock cylinder cover & adjustable oil pump.
Comes with a 2 year conditional warranty.
