Complete Guide to the Husqvarna 550xp

HLSupply previously gave away a Husqvarna 543xp and a 562 using our email contacts, Facebook and OPEforum.com. If you're not on our VIP email list, you can join by clicking here. Now that the 550XP has been out for a while, I'd like to talk about that model. Of course HLSupply stocks parts for many Husqvarna models for fast delivery.

A couple of noteworthy features on the Husqvarna 550xp are the replaceable sprocket nose, auto-tune, bar nuts that don't fall off, air injection, and and advanced air cleaning system.

The ignition module on the 550 XP works in conjunction with the auto-tune module on the carburetor that adjusts itself automatically all the time. The auto tune will constantly accommodate different conditions that affect carburetors. The flywheel has two extra magnets to run the carb's module. With this saw, there's no need to spend time on carburetor adjustments. It compensates for different fuels, altitude, humidity, temperature and clogged air filter. Husq AutoTune gives optimal engine performance throughout automatic engine setting.

When you remove the bar nuts, they stay captured to the side cover and won't fall off. You'll find a side adjustment near those nuts. Also noteworthy on the subject of bar replacement is the replaceable sprocketnose.

The air injector gets clean air from the flywheel where it gets rammed up into the air box. Oh, there is also a quick-release access to its air cleaner where the air injector is also found. Just pop open four clips that hold the cover on.

This saw also has a centrifugal air cleaning system that removes larger dust and debris before it gets to the air filter so that you won't have to clean the air filter as often. This will give your saw improved engine life.
