Your findings correspond to the fact that this saw (=Dolmar PS500) belongs to the Farm saws category.
(Anyway for $160 great buy!)
With MS261 C-M you won't make a mistake. If you want to spend less money, you may look at weaker Echo CS-490/Cs-501SX and heavier Makita EA5000P.
This is a typo in english version of the report!!! Correct value for 562xp is also 3,5 kW.
Dolmar PS7900 = Makita DCS7900
added decomp -> Dolmar PS7900HS = Makita DCS7901
added cat -> Dolmar PS7910 = Makita EA7900P
heated version ->...
I don't know when it was changed. In this Makita Canada January 2018 catalogue, the gas chainsaws are already red (as well as in the current 2019...

PS 460/500 are farm versions of professional PS 4600/5000.

Dolmar PS550 is the same as Makita EA5600, maybe you saw that one?
No, it is a farmer-range chainsaw.
362xp and 371xp are older models, I'd choose from 357xp, 359, 365 SPECIAL, 372xp nonXT.
Why don't you just have a look at www.husqvarna.com? It would be faster than waiting for an answer here... And to be a helper: answer is yes.
