The Husqvarna 550XP chainsaw has been designed for professional forestry use and is one of the new generation of chainsaw.
The Husqvarna 550Xp has a 50.1 cc engine that produces 2.8 kW / 3.8 hp power output and weighs 4.9 kg without the bar and chain. It has an X-Torq engine that reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% and emissions by up to 75% over conventional 2 stroke engines without the compromise of power! Just as a conventional two-stroke engine, the air/fuel mix enters the crankcase as normal. However, in Husqvarna’s X-TORQ engine, there is a second stream of unmixed, cleaner air moving through the piston and entering the transfer ports at the upper end. This unmixed, cleaner air then becomes the first element that enters the cylinder.
The chainsaw also features Husqvarna AutoTune – an automatic engine management system that adapts to air filter condition, fuel mix and weather conditions to ensure optimal engine performance at all times. It also has Husqvarna RevBoost – this delivers rapid acceleration and high chain speeds for suberb limbing performance.
The chainsaw also has a Husqvarna Low Vib anti-vibration system which delivers impressive figures – 2.7/3.2 m/s2 F/R. The air injection system pre-cleans the air before it reaches the engine and the air purge makes for easier starting. See our full range of Husqvarna chainsaws.
