The second generation of Husqvarna’s 550 XP® chainsaw is ready for demanding use in felling, limbing and bucking operations. The saw delivers maximum power in the 50cc class. Designed for professional forestry and tree care crews, this durable saw has improved power and a slimmed-down design. Plus, heated handles increases comfort in cold and damp conditions.


  • RETAINED BAR NUTS: The retaining function prevents loosing the bar nuts.
  • SLIMMED-DOWN DESIGN: Low, slender saw body makes the chainsaw easy and convenient to handle in any situation.
  • LOWVIB®: System designed to reduce vibration levels to the operator, which lessens fatigue.
  • ADJUSTABLE OIL PUMP: Allows you to control oil flow depending on application and weather conditions.
  • MAGNESIUM CRANKCASE: Sturdily built crankcase withstands high rpms and tough professional use, ensuring a long service life.
  • X-TORQ®: Delivers lower fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emission levels in accordance with the world´s most stringent environmental regulations.
  • AUTOTUNE: AutoTune 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.
  • 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.
  • FELLING SIGHT TO LAST A LIFETIME: Perfect sight is critical when felling – so we made one that will outlast the chainsaw itself.
  • AIR INJECTION®: Centrifugal air cleaning system removes larger dust and debris particles before reaching the air filter. This results in reduced air filter cleanings and improved engine life.
  • VISIBLE FUEL LEVEL: Transparent fuel indicator makes it easy to check fuel level.
  • SNAP-LOCK CYLINDER COVER: Saves time when changing spark plugs and cleaning.
  • SIDE-MOUNTED CHAIN TENSIONER: Easier access to chain tensioning device.
  • THREE-PIECE CRANKSHAFT: Forged three-piece crankshaft for maximum durability for the toughest applications.
  • RETAINED STARTER SCREWS: The retaining function prevents loosing the screws holding the starter.
