I have recently weighed a couple of very clean NE's as well as a very clean OE. Both weigh about 11lbs 4oz. I weighed my 261 which I got used but would guess it has no more than 3 hours of cutting time on it. I blew it out very well, then cleaned and dried the tanks. I got a weight of 11lbs 14oz.
I have not weighed a 555, but based on the history of Husky weights, I would be that saw is very near 13lbs.

I assume that was PHO?  The Husky US website says 12.35 lbs  (= 12 lbs, 5.6 oz)

99% of the time we refer to PHO dry for weights.   smiley_hydrogen

I would have expected that to be the case if you, or many others here on FF weighed it, but when it's "was told by owner...", I didn't know
