X-Tough Light Bar
This is described by Husqvarna as “a guide bar that feels lightweight and works heavyweight.”
The name says it all really – it’s light but tough!

The winning combination of this lightweight bar with the X-Cut chain and 592 XP powerhead is exceptional.

The Husky 592 XP
As more info comes out about the Husky 592 XP chainsaw we’ll add it to this post.
If you want to hear the Husqvarna team talk about the 592 and the 585, check out this video introducing the new 90cc chainsaws.
For now, we just have to wait for it to be released so we can start getting a bit more user feedback from those using it in the wild.
For those not needing such a powerful chainsaw, consider the Husqvarna 460 Rancher here. This is from the Farm and Ranch series (rather than the pro series) of Husky saws. It’s a 60cc chainsaw that is great for around the home or as a backup for the pros.
Or, the Husqvarna 562XP is another excellent option for those needing some more guts.
