Husqvarna 565 Review

Promising next-generation cutting performance, the Husqvarna 565 lets you work faster and more efficiently with long guide bars. Excellent cooling capacity and state-of-the-art filtration empower you to tackle the most demanding tasks. Equipped with revamped AutoTune and Air Injection and offering low vibrations, the 565 is a powerful yet ergonomically designed chainsaw for fast, safe work.


Front handle ergonomics

The front handle is offset by 7° which provides better grip and reduces fatigue.

Side-mounted chain tensioner

Easier access to the chain tensioning device.

Quick-release air filter & air filter cover

Easily removable air filter, when you need to clean it or replace it.

Flip up tank caps

Easy to open and close when refueling.

Visible fuel level

The fuel tank is transparent, so you can see how much fuel is left.


Air Injection

The centrifugal air cleaning system prevents larger dust and debris particles from reaching the air filter. In return, you get improved engine life and less maintenance cleaning the air filter.

Magnesium crankcase

Sturdily built crankcase withstands high RPMs and tough professional use. This ensures a long service life.

Soft cut-out system

System for engine control designed to providea long engine life. It monitors the engine and assures that it’s always protected from over-revving.

Felling sight to last a lifetime

Perfect sight is critical when felling. Distinct, colored marks on the chainsaw body used for aiming the direction of tree fall.



The vibration dampening system called LowVib is present in all Husky chainsaws. Metal springs in the engine suspension reduce vibrations felt by the operator. This allows you to work longer without your hands getting exhausted and it also prevents developing medical conditions.

Inertia activated chain brake

In the case of kickback, the inertia mechanism will stop the chain from running. This significantly reduces the risk of injury.


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.

Better maneuverability gives full control

The front handle bar position is close to the center of gravity, which gives you better cutting control.


Probably the best thing about newer Husqvarna saws. It reduces emissions by up to 75% and fuel consumption by up to 20%. You spend less on gas and breathe fewer fumes. It also makes the saw CARB compliant.


Gives optimal engine performance throughout automatic engine setting. No time spent on carburetor adjustments. It compensates for different fuels, altitude, humidity, temperature and clogged air filter.

Smart Start

Engine and starter design to start the machine quickly with minimum effort.
