Husqvarna 572 XP (G) Review

Tested in the world’s most rugged environments, the Husqvarna 572 XP is ready for demanding work by forestry and tree care professionals. At just 14.5 lbs, the 572 XP has a better power-to-weight ratio and 12% higher cutting capacity than previous Husqvarna models in the same class. Excellent cooling and heavy-duty filtration maximize reliability, while a smart design accommodates longer guide bars. Thanks to AutoTune, Air Injection, and low vibration technology, the 572 XP empowers you to work all day. Get ready to cut faster, longer, and better than ever with the 572 XP.

There’s also a version with heated handles – Husqvarna 572 XP G. It’s a bit more expensive and heavier, but other than that, they’re identical.


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.

Quick-release air filter & air filter cover

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

Heated handles (only 572 XP G)

For improved comfort and productivity, the heated handles keep your hand warm. Maintaining maneuverability and control at the highest level also increases safety.


Equipped with a state-of-the-art filtration system

Large surface heavy duty filter for longer and better filtration. The filter has a larger filtration area compared to the previous generation. Providing a chainsaw with a healthier engine optimized for long working hours.

Excellent cooling capacity for a longer engine life

Husky’s new cooling system is optimized in every detail to give you a reliable chainsaw for any situation.

Soft cut-out system

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

Better chip ejection avoids clogging

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

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.

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.

Adjustable oil pump

You can control oil flow based on application and weather conditions.

Magnesium crankcase

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

Three-piece crankshaft

Forged three-piece crankshaft for maximum durability for the toughest applications.


Low vibrations

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.

Rubber handle inlay for a safer grip

The rubber handle provides a firm grip, while still allowing you flexibility while you work.

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.


Higher cutting capacity

The 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.

10 times quicker air/fuel mix adjustment

AutoTune™ ensures a correctly tuned engine setting and optimized engine performance in all conditions.

Better maneuverability gives full control

The front handle bar position is close to the center of gravity, giving 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.
