The 525P4S pole saw from Husqvarna delivers a precision cutting and an excellent power-to-weight ratio at your fingertips. Engineered with Husqvarna’s LowVib technology, it delivers low vibration levels for increased operator safety and comfort. The 525P4S is powered by an X-Torq engine that produces 20% greater fuel-saving and 60% fewer emissions. The automatic bar and chain oiler, commercial-grade, 7-spline solid shaft, tool-less air filter access, and tough armor plating all deliver the performance and durability you need to get the job done. Keep your productivity at its peak with the 525P4S pole saw from Husqvarna.

There are 2 more versions of this saw.
