Featuring a 70.6CC petrol engine with a powerful 4.3kW output, the Husqvarna 572XP® Petrol Chainsaw has been designed to work harder for longer. This well-balanced, reliable and durable piece of equipment has been designed for professional forestry and arboriculture use. It boasts a cutting capacity that is 12% higher than previous models of equivalent spec and the autotune feature ensures this chainsaw will stand the test of time. With a choice of 18-inch (45cm), 20-inch (50cm), 24-inch (60cm) or 28-inch (70cm) bars in the range, this chainsaw is the latest generation of petrol-fuelled machines.

Ergonomically Designed with the User in Mind

The Husqvarna 572XP® Petrol Chainsaw includes features that make it more comfortable to handle for long periods of time. Firstly, at just 6.6kg it’s a light-weight machine that offers a superior weight-to-power ratio. With built-in LowVib technology, the user experiences less fatigue in the hands and arms – Husqvarna achieves this by separating the vibrations from the user with buffers. To offer better control during operation, the front handle is positioned near to the centre of gravity. A rubber inlay on the handle ensures the user maintains a secure grip on the machine during operation. The overall slim line shape has been designed to offer better sight when operating the chainsaw.

Features of the 572XP

A number of features have been incorporated in the design to ensure reliability and durability. An AutoTune™ system ensures The Husqvarna 572XP® Petrol Chainsaw is perfectly tuned for all conditions by adjusting the air/fuel mix up to 10 times quicker. The air cooling system has been newly developed and works alongside the Air Injection™ system that uses a tough, large surface filter that keeps 98% of incoming dust out for optimised performance. Better chip ejection is provided by an improved clutch meaning clogging is kept to a minimum. The fuel indicator has been built in transparent material to make it easier to check on fuel levels, and the tank has a flip-top cap that can be removed even when wearing gloves. A soft cut-out system monitors revs during operation and provides engine protection from over-revving.

Higher cutting capacity
New engine design offers a wide usable RPM range for peak performance even under heavy loads. 12% higher cutting capacity (compared to previous models in the same cc-range) makes the saw ideal for productive operation – even when using long guide bars.

Excellent cooling capacity for a longer engine life
Our new cooling system is optimised in every detail to give you a reliable chainsaw for any situation.

Equipped with state-of-the-art filtration system
572 XP® carries – as standard – a large surface heavy duty filter for longer and better filtration. The filter has a larger filtration area compared to previous generation. Providing a chainsaw with a healthier engine optimised for long working hours.

10 times quicker air/fuel mix adjustment
AutoTune™ ensures a correctly tuned engine setting and optimised engine performance in all conditions.

Low vibrations
Husqvarna’s anti vibration system efficiently separates your hands from the vibrations generated by the engine and the cutting equipment. This is to protect your body but also to reduce the fatigue in your arms and hands and in the end of the day contribute to make your workday more productive.

Flip up tank caps
Easy to open and secure firmly, even when wearing thick winter gloves.

Better chip ejection avoids clogging
The clutch cover is designed to optimise rapid, safe saw chip ejection. Prevents clogging, even when cutting long fibre wood.

Soft cut-out system
The innovative system for engine control is designed for providing a long engine life. The system monitors the engine and assures that the engine always is protected from over-revving.

Better manoeuvrability gives full control
The front handle bar position is close to the center of gravity, giving you better cutting control.

Felling sight to last a lifetime
Perfect sight is critical when felling – so we made one that will outlast the chainsaw itself.

Rubber handle inlay for safer grip
The rubber handle provides a firm grip, while still allowing you flexibility while you work.

Visible fuel level
Transparent fuel indicator makes it easy to check fuel level.

Air Injection filters 98% of incoming dust
Give you full working days with maintained performance and less wear on the engine.

  1. C Woods

    Great saw! Makes my 346xp seem gutless.
    The new choke/kill switch takes a bit of getting used to works perfectly. Even with a 24inch bar it doesn’t sweat. Great service from Radmore & Tucker!

  2. Paul Forster

    Excellent saw, runs like a swiss watch nicely balanced and doesn’t feel as heavy as my older husqvarna 575 that it has replaced.

    This is a nicely built saw that’s really robust, I can see myself running this saw long into the future.

  3. Rob (verified owner)

    Haven’t used it much yet but, it cuts better with a 20″ bar than a 560XP with 18″. More power with an even longer bar is more like it:) Good saw and still not too heavy, can carry it around all day.

  4. Caradoc Thomas (verified owner)

    Excellent. I have switched from Stihl . Heavier but more muscle and some very good features. Very happy customer.
