    No no... Completely different chassis, looks similar to the 4700 5000, and the older 4600, 4900 and 5200, although the old ones had a different air filter set-up!
    I Almost bought a P 5300, before I knew of AS.

    The 5000 was also available as the "Formula 60 PLUS" , all black 60 year anniversary saw.

    Guess the original 500/5000 chassis is forever gone!

    okay heres my P55 this is my ride around in my truck just in case saw. while I was cleaning this up I noticed that the CYL looked nearly identical to a K650 I grabbed a old one off a 650 and it bolted right up so now its got a ported k650 jug it really cuts great now that I got the carb dialed in.

    Thats interesting on the K650 P/C.

    There easy to find and would keep a bunch of these going for a while.

    Bet it added some snort to it didnt it?

    Here is my P543, which I believe is the last of the 5000 family!
    Bought it brand new in 2007.

    I know that 543 is a mighty good saw but why did they make it look like a room heater? Please don't be insulted - I really would love one but we did not get anything like that down here in OZ.

    Like Bo said, it is the latest saw in the P5000 family - and I agree with you about the looks - that it surely is a bad design, regarding the looks! :msp_smile:

    Naw I'm heading up that investigation. Soon as we see pictures and proof, your in!



    I would think so.

    I bet it did but is the porting different on the K jug?

    I still say that its a nice saw.

    Well, I tend to agree but I think it could grow on you after awhile. :msp_biggrin:

    Just found this Partner thread hiding in the sticky section.
    Here's a picture of my P500. It's the first one I reach for, unless I need something larger...or smaller.

    It's by no means new but a very dependable saw. I've got another one of these with damaged plastic salted away for parts and/or when the time comes, it has a nearly new engine.

    Let's see some more Partners. :cheers:

    I'm by no means insulted :) I'm not all crazy about the design my self! I think the top cover looks kinda cool, but that starter cover just looks to cheap/homeowner to me!
    And it was a cheap saw when I bought it! The engine is basicly a Husqvarna 55, and the AV is better! When I bought it, I paid 2000 dkk, at that time a 55 was about 4200 dkk! And it was my first real saw, after a re-badged Poulan junk saw! So it is a very special saw to me!

    Well fellers,

    Guess what my friendly neighborhood mailman left on my porch today???

    It's not mint by any means but I think it is a pretty nice example.

    Before anyone asks, that is sitting on a water maple that used to be in my front yard and no the 5000Plus isn't the saw that brought it down!LOL

    That's a beauty Mike. I think the more you run it, it will become one of your favorite saws. :msp_smile:
