    That too, but I've read of the 357 cyl on the 359 bottom and it just ain't got the poke.

    True dat. I wonder though if the 565/572 are going to be very close to each other mechanically like the 365/ 372 X-Torq models. If both saws have full circle cranks stuffers aint needed;)

    Here's another logger perspective. Guy is the analytical type and loves that I can plug in the AT saws and tell him how many hours he's getting on them. He can run run 8 tanks of fuel through a saw by lunch time. Every cut is a money cut. No cookies and doesn't go to GTG's. (but did supply some wood to a couple of mine; thank you Mike :) ) Runs 562's and gets about 300 hours on them by which time they are begging for mercy. Exception is his last one that got crushed the first week he had it. :(

    But, the way he sees it, if he's getting 300 hours on a saw, then it's only costing him $2 an hour for that piece of equipment. (not counting the gas and oil and chains/bars). Not too bad at all from his viewpoint. Most of us look at a saw and think, OMG, $800! And I already have three dozen saws, so how the heck can I justify something like that? LOL

    Don't get me wrong; I'm as much a saw geek and have as much fun as anyone here. But those guys do have a different way of looking at things. :)

    More volume can make more torque and lower the powerband.

    Make it more Stihl esque? Wouldn't that be more beneficial in a long bar set up (mill etc). I've not seen a build thread with them being removed. Interesting, but doesn't sound like what I'd want in a port job for a 50 class saw.

    Ok, we have some first little issues over the pond (german forum). Broken bar stud (out of the case) and a broken clutch clip after maybe 5h. But nothing to worry about in my opinion, seems like a rare material defect (or maybe owner mistake?) to me. Like i said in the 462 thread, a fresh 572xp for porting is on its way and i have the delightful option to put it against a stock 462 (later both ported):b1:

    Thanks for sharing this info. It's nice to hear from someone with hands on experience rather keep on speculating on the "what if's" of these new saws. Looking forward to your comparison.

    Wider power band is always welcome in smaller saw for me.

    I would think the 565 would be to the 572xp what the 555 is to the 562xp, or the 545 to the 550xp.
    All orange (not two-tone), different cylinder, different piston (possibly), no crank stuffers, no rev boost, cheaper.

    I heard that on the older 3-series saws, when new there was ~1.6 thou clearance, and 3 thou clearance between piston and cylinder when about worn out. Now these 5-series come from the factory at 3-thou clearance. They run hotter, have more piston slap and require higher quality oil to cushion the piston.
    Between bearings wearing out, seals crapping out, carb diaphragms and pistons wearing, what else wears out on a pose head? When it all goes at the same time and requires a complete overhaul, I can see it being an expensive fix, but I wonder how a saw is determined to be worn out beyond cost effective to repair?

    Still, 300 hours, makes me want to know how many hours I have on my 562xp.

    Not much is easier to work on or more straight forward than a 044/440 or 046/460/461, IMO.
