I was at the shop two days ago looking for a new saw to buy soon. The dealer recommended the  555. Told me he has sold 20 or 30 of  them and everyone thinks its a great saw.

Do the 555 and the 562 share the same basic components like the 365 and the 372?   I notice their both 59 cc saws but the 555 is a 1/4 lighter (12.3 vs 12.5)lighter but the 562 has a half more horsepower (4.7 vs 4.3)  THE 555 can be had in the $550 range on ebay and seems like a real bargain while the 562 is $150 more.  Is it worth the extra coin for the 562?

555 differences off the top off my head, transfer covers, no bells on crankshaft, small mount bar, no rev boost.
