most likely you got a fuel line with a hole in it , the primer bulb is not a very good idea , but if its the carb they will just put a new carb on it just hope your dealer has the CD program kit from Husky to fix the new carb
I just bought one today, as my range of saws went from 50 to 85 cc and I was no longer content with the 261 and 18" bar. I demoed it on some hardwoods and summarily traded the 261. For some reason they wouldn't take the trade straight across, so they made me pay some. Haha.
A little vid of this thing in 22" honey locust. A beast, and really ergonomic. I like it now but new stuff is always cool. Time will tell...
Owner of the service I work for has a 562. My first thought when I saw it was, "what a weird looking little fake saw." I've been using it for the past few days, and it is lean and mean. For a saw that small, it really hauls chain around that 28" bar, and I mean hauls it.
I haven't had any hot carb/restart issues with it, but I definitely like the new power/choke switch technology they have on these 500 series saws. I like how the nuts over the bar cover can not separate from the bar cover, so you can't lose them.
The saw IS much more serious than I thought when I saw it sitting on our shelf. My only complaint is about the bucking dogs. They are so little, and they have that angled up bottom spike just so you absolutely cannot get that spike in the wood to pivot your bar. Made me mad, and I immediately thought they must sell a bigger set them separately for a lot of money.
I'm looking out for the 540. I asked my dealer about it, and he said his guy from Husky said they would be in around Feb. But I was also told that he had to laugh at himself because the release date has been delayed so many times already that nobody can actually depend on Feb. He really doesn't expect it to show up here until late in the year.
I like a 24" bar, in that vid I posted that is the length of bar I'm using. Less bending when limbing.
The real issue of using a longer bar & chain than recommended is due to the potential safety problem for throwing a chain. One opens up the potential for the chain to hit the operator when using a longer bar than recommended. It has less to do with the power or ability of a saw to pull the chain than the safety of use.
I was using the 562 with a 28" bar today to cut down a heap of brush. It was like running through a jungle mess. The saw worked like a sword in that junk. I've never had better; light weight, strong, and the long bar gives so much reach.
