    Ok ..Husqvarna Farm saw...a couple of pics. Have to say times have changed!

    Spike & Moto with old generation Mac 10-10 and Homey XL-12 working behind a 555 and 562..:) That 562XP is a true Pro level saw..its the real deal.

    Three Generations of Farm saws (In My humble opinion)....McCulloch 10-10, Husqvarna 455 & 555. 1960's thru 1980's. Then jump fast forward to year 2000 with the 455 and now 2012 with the 555...(Husqvarna may not see it this way BTW...:) but that 555 is what the 455 needs to be. I have to say it would be a tough choice between the 460 and 555 because of pricing..I like my 455 and for "refub" prices its a steal, but really liked this 555 based on first impressions. Why would a farmer & land owner type (like me) type get a top of the line box store offerings instead of finding one of these for a little more and end up with much more saw?..I probably will with a red one to replace my 455 when it goes back to the BIL's a few weeks from now.)

    I wonder how much wood all the 10-10's and XL-12's in the world have cut?

    Just had time with one to try yesterday, couple of hours & did some comparison testing...I don't own one yet, but liked what I saw; nice machine. (No pun intended) The 562 is yet again more saw BTW for the real serious saw guy.
