well I sold the 455 rancher I had for almost 400$ cad to my step brother, it’s not worth that but I threw in a pro bar and 4 chains, xp oil, files guides etc to get him to pay that. I used the money to put toward a new 550xp cause I wanted a really small pro saw, well the 550 is exactly that. Just for firewood and cutting down smaller trees, something I could pick up and go Pros Light, like 12 pounds maybe 13 with bar and chain [email protected]” Came with a winter kit, orange screen filter and winter cover for freezing temps Excellent throttle response Sight glass for fuel which I find very very useful Narrow and short framed saw, feels like I have an ms170 all over again. Cons Oiler sucks, this was claims to support a 20” but time will tell! We will see how many times I have to re tension the chain or how long this bar lasts after 10 litres of fuel... Auto tune “learning” I hope this doesn’t happen all the time but worked great yesterday but today she was bogging terribly in a cut of 12” pine... I think it was trying to adjust fuel... after being patient (5 more cuts of this bogging) it cleared right up. For a goto saw not very cool, but hopefully this is just at the beginning. Heat This little guy gets extremely hot, as in too hot to touch the cover after you shut it off! I also noticed the top handle getting quite hot soaking up heat from the engine. The bar was extremely hot when I was done cutting much hotter than the 455 could ever get it seems! I think I’m gonna mod the muffler right away I can’t see heat of this magnitude being any good for the hoses and seals... Anywho onto the first problem and fix The Oiler hose connection to the bar is of a very poor fit, it barely makes contact with the bar towards the end, and near the clutch it is actually recessed about a 32 behind the Oiler tube/breather cover plate! It was spitting oil down the bar behind the dogs all over, what a waste. Gonna have to fix that! See pic above! I cut a piece of cardboard gasket maker just slightly thinner than the hose connection which was 1/16 thick. Tucked it in behind and put the tube back and put cover plate back on. Oiler no longer pukes and more oil is on the chain, quick and easy fix... too bad it’s like that out of the box. Any advice for me please give some feedback!
