    I'm a firewood cutter for myself and really the 562 takes care of all my needs. I just got rid of the 346 because I needed the money more then I needed the saw. I can always get more saws. The 254 and 262 were pretty much shelf queens. Great running saws but to nice for me to use them in the woods. I have 2 rare 254s left. At one time I had 20+ saws and 13 were ported. I'm down to 3 ported saws now.

    More cc in a 254 as a start.
    You ever wondered why Husqvarna did these odd size cc saws ? Im thinking mostly about the 254 - 357 .
    The 254 ends up being that bit more HP than most 50cc saws of there time and the 357 ends up a little less than the 60cc class saws.
    Both are plenty of saw in there own right but just out of step with the usual groups. Then there was the Husq 55 at 53cc !! then there is the 257....that... WAS ...57ccc and the husq 51 also ...51cc o_O :D.Just how did they end up at the numbers I wonder. There very well may be reasoning for it all but I don't know for sure.

    I agree, that mid 50cc size is a bit weird. Maybe they had a pair of dice with bore and stroke on them and built what they rolled...lol! But whatever they did, the 254 and 357 sure do run good.
