Schmeg, 
Have you noticed any issues with hesitation when coming off idle or trouble with warm restarts since owning the saw?  I know there was a thread here discussing it and it seemed many owners of the saw were having the same problems.  This is an AutoTune model, correct?

Also, I just went on a popular shopping website with a "rainforest name"  and see they are selling Husqvarna 562xp's! Showing the price also!

Yes, its an autotune and that technology works perfect. Understand the Autotune only works on the high speed circuit, so the slow speed left to its own devices which is lean for EPA reasons which is why the saw has a stalling problem. Some people claim changing the carb will fix the issue, but that is probably due to jetting differences (tolerances) from carb to carb. Thats why it works for some people and not others. If you are a climber, I would look elsewhere. On the ground, I wouldn't worry about it. Its more of  an occasional annoyance than anything. Hopefully there will be a fix soon. I would buy the saw again if given the chance. I also would give the MS362 CE a closer look. But I understand they have their issues too.

Welcome and yes the 562 XP does run like a scalded dog. It goes from zero to 60 faster than any saw I ever owned.

Thanks for the answer.  I have a 545 AT and it's great especially when I'm changing from home altitude of 1000 ft to 8000 ft at our cabin.  I just heard complaints from the 562 AT owners.  I'm a firm believer in electronic engine management.

The 562 will handle a 24" b&c in pine with no problem.
the 562- 24" is too slow for me plus the poor balance turns me off......thats where my 372XP with 24" comes in.
The balance is way off with a 24 "bar. I bought a 24" bar and put it on and picked the saw up and set it back down and took the bar off. Yes, the 372 XP handles it with ease.

Lol, west coast balance means nothing for the application in this thread.
The OP and the majority of posters on this thread are from no where near the left coast :D

Sorry, there is nothing left of center in my life, but anyway, had the saw out again today. Purposely trying to get it to bog just playing around with it. Outside temp 35F. Clear, low humidity. A good day for working. Here are some findings:
1. Saw doesn't bog at all after start-up and for first few minutes of operation. Runs real clean.
2. Once the saw is up to temp, it won't bog if it idles for less than 5 seconds.
3. If you let the saw idle for a couple of minutes, it bogs bad for a split second then either rips hard or stalls. Not much smoke, but some when it revs up, so it acts more like the saw is loading up than leaning out, but it actually could be a little of both.
4. Outside of this small issue which can be annoying at times, this saw runs like a motocross bike with a bar attached to it.

Schmeg,  when I bought my 562  new after some use it started to give some erratic behaviors.  I put a new spark  plug in and has been running good ever since.

I'm heeding over to the saw shop tomorrow to pick up my 2 year old grandson a plastic chainsaw so he can help me with cutting this weekend. I'll pick one up then and give it a try.

Seeing the saw is new you still have warranty on your side if worse case scenario the plug doesn't help.

Well, I went in for a plug today. I discussed the bog issue with the owner of the shop. He said that Husky is coming out with a new carb later this spring. If the saw still has the issue when the carb comes out, he will replace the carb under warrantee. When I brought this up, he was well versed in the problem. He stated some saws do it, some don't. I'll be trying the new plug later today.

These problems are often misinterpreted on forums like this. Only a very small number of the saws have a carb with this issue. But the pending arrival of a new carb leads some to the mistaken conclusion that all of the EL-46 carbs have the same issue.

If your saw is actually bad enough that it will stall, another of the current carb can be installed and the problem will most likely disappear. It's not like you have to live with the problem until the new carb is available. Did the dealer plug it in and hit the fuel setting reset?

Some other mis-information in this thread: AT does NOT only work in hi-speed. There is no manual Lo speed mixture or even an idle adjustment screw. The entire RPM range is controlled by AT and the throttle position sensor.

It is often possible to create some slight hesitation on an otherwise perfectly running saw by frequent and unecessary throttle blipping between cuts. I discovered this as I'm one of those chronic throttle blippers that's annoying to be around.  :)

How about when you shut the saw down to move limbs, does it fire right back up easily?

I was thinking the same too Spike. Seeing I noticed the OP mentioned earlier he was "trying to bog" the saw.

Re-starts are good. It always fires right up with or without high idle. The only issue is a lean spot just off idle. I flooded it yesterday during the cold start, but that was probably my fault. I'm interested to see if the saw works out of this with more use. After all, its only had a total of a half gallon of fuel put through it. I understand sometimes they work out of this issue. jay.

Jay, did you do the 5 minute at WOT in the wood as the owners manual instructs?

What's that old joke?

"Then don't press there anymore."
