Husqvarna 562XP chainsaw

Husqvarna 562XP chainsaw is it over kill ?
I am needing a good chainsaw to replace my old pioneer p60 chainsaw it was my Dad's logging chainsaw it is 22lb. dry. I Use it for years did not think it was heavy .The 562XP is Weight (excl. cutting equipment)12.57 lbs so that looks good and 4.7HP that maybe as good as the p60 or better I don't know.
Who can say some thing about 562XP?

It's a great saw. But, before recommending, what do you plan to use it for? What size bar do you want to run? What size wood do you cut?

Silly me order one with a 18'' bar .Before I have even got it I been thinking of getting 20'' bar and chain . I have some land that has pine trees that are about 24'' cross section. I do not think the 562XP will out do the P60. I use it to cut some fire wood it will real do sum fast cutting and that is with all it's problems. when I was cleaning it up I notes the out putt shaft was floppy, low compression, air filter has issues and so on.
