592XP and 585 Huskys
« on: January 09, 2021, 06:35:27 AM »
I guess I can talk about these things now.  8)

592XP product codes showed up this week and went "live" in the system. Nothing is available to ship until July 26, so they are months away at this point. If they are on time, and hardly anything is these days. Between the XP and XPG models there are an awful lot of SKU's for the different B&C combos. Price increase over like equiped 395's is a pretty reasonable $60. Not bad at all, and less than I expected.  :)

There is also a companion "5" model coming, a 585 priced $100 less than the 592. Figure the same concept as the 365/372, 565/572, 555/562. Not sure how well that will do. I sell a fair amount of 565's because they slot in between the 562 and 572. And most 565 buyers are stepping up from the 562, not down from the 572. But a $100 swing when you're up past the $1000 mark isn't a big deal.

I've had a couple of pre-production 592G's for a while now, for logger testing. Need to get a green light from Sweden, but maybe Walt and I can do a video with one of them.

Thats going to be a very good seller!

Finally there will be something to keep up with a Stihl MS661CM.

We shall see how it goes!

I honestly don't know the stats. Mine are G models and they feel about the same weight as the 395. Power is supposed to exceed the 395.  :)

I've been wondering when they were going to update the 395 class saw. It's basically the only saw I run these days.

I'm very anxious to hear and see this pro saw perform. I'm hearing bad things about quality control and present Swedish saws. If Husky can't make a blow-out saw for a little over a grand, then they're going to give it all away to Stihl. That would be a tragedy.

Looking forward to spending time with one of those. Always find it interesting how the spec sheet defines the discussion vs. the performance and life with a saw over time. But I understand how that a spec sheet is the first point of contact and folks love to compare numbers. It's simple. I'll get one regardless. Might go for the lower number to be contrarian :)

I was hoping the power of the 395 in the weight of a 346 in stock form

well Spike said this new saw is real good so I'm sure it is and to have the heated model already out thats good news , I'm sure he will have them a long time before we see anything on this side of the border but as soon as they are hear we will be playing with the 592

here a 572 is quite abit cheaper than a stihl 462 , lots can be bought for a grand our money where a 462 is 1200 plus tax so hope the 592 is not that much more

Chris, ya don't know how nice it is to hear someome say they like the auto-tune saws. So many guys who have no clue what it is, blame everything that happens to the saw on the AT. That includes half of the dealers out there, both Husky and Stihl, who are either intimidated or ignorant of all this new technology. Had a guy in the other day with a 2012 562 that lost the PTO bearing. "I'm not buying anymore of these auto-tune saws."  Perception is reality to some guys; nothing I can do about it. :)

When given the choice, I'm going with the auto tune saws. Every new technology has some hiccups. I'm sure glad I'm not out turning screws on a a carburetor on my wife's rig because it's not running quite right in the cold🤷🏽‍♂️

As a friend pointed out, software upgrades and resets should remain reasonable for the life of the saw. Prices for that now are all over the place as dealers explore this newer technology.

Unfortunately Kevin, even lots of seasoned dealers dont know what Im talking about.

Im just now getting my favorite local Husqvarna dealer to at least hear my FF learned opinions about quite a few things! I never knew what a difficult time my teachers, when I was growing up, had doing theyre job.

    I FEEL FOR THE GOOD ONES !!!!

Their not many (if any) left at all!

Teachers OR Dealers!

Ive got two 2260s (favorite saw ever) a 550, and the 572. Theyve always been flawless. 
Yeah a crank bearing is entirely auto tunes fault 🙄 
I bet you see a lot less saws that have had the carbs messed with and burned up and not running right. Someone with no clue and a screwdriver can make a mess quick.

Ive also not had hot start issues. Follow the procedure and its fine. 
I run the crap out of those 2260s. Wish husky made the 560 available in the states. 
I still have a bunch of old 372 and 2171 stuff Ill hang onto forever.

Very valid point. Been piles of saws ruined by owners with air leaks or tuning too lean. If anything, auto-tune will aid to the elimination of that scenario. And logically, if the system is bullet-proof and has longevity, it will make saws last longer. Maybe even affect resale value in positive ways.....we'll see.

I'm an old guy and run 'antique' saws and yet I'm fascinated with the concept of auto-tune. If I was looking for a new, large cc powerful saw, I'd be looking at that feature.
