Haven't put fuel in it yet. Wanted to cut some with it but it was to hot out.

You think I should openup the muffler first?

Depends how loud you want it:jesterlaugh: Seriously though, a mm mod does make em louder than usual.


What am I saying, YES

For us non husky guys what does the G Stand for/ represent? larger displacement? I was very impressed with the 362 spike had a month or so ago...... very very smooth

Oh the G model is the heated handles and carb package.

Just got in from running it for the first few times. Running good now.
Pulled the spark screen for the first run in.
Running VP fuel.

On the G model the handle bar is a little thicker.
The air filer is lower in profile and a white screen is used.
The carb box below the air filter is blue not black.

I ran some of the protype 562/560 models when Spike had them about a year and a half ago.
This new saw is just the same.

Likes a light touch for now!

A spy photo of the 560 model taken at the Eastern Pa. GTG in the fall of 2010

Obviously! :agreed:

Btw, there was no delay with the 560xpg here, it was out at the same time as the xp - and mine is of course an xpg! :10:

Mitchy had a ported one at the MO GTG and that thing was anything but light handed. :yup: :banana: :rock2:

That was days after it received a pop up. Felt I lost a little high end after that so i went back in raising the exhaust, opening the trans up a bit and stepped the the exhaust port. If I don't have a tree job for a week....find myself in the shop just starting it to run through the revs. Favorite work saw ever, hands down.

Two members sent me a 361 and 440 today. I have a nice 372 stock mm for a four saw comparison. In another thread though :happywink:

The saw will be a little peaky for the first tank and maybe part of the second no matter what you do. The initial carb setting does calm it down some but it takes some longer learning to come into its own. By tank two it will be hamfisted from start to finish :rock2:
