Pros & Cons

  • Lightweight
  • Build quality
  • Easy to start, use & maintain
  • Pricey

Design

Intuitive keypad

Keypad with On/Off button for safe and convenient activation and savE function for longer runtime. LED feedback when the product is active.

Battery through body design (pat. pend.)

Smart battery pack position placed horizontally through the body of the machine. Reduces the risk of having dirt, chips, dust, and water accumulate in the battery compartment, causing connector issues. Also, it means the weight of the battery can be placed in or near the desired center of gravity and in the rotational axis of the product, resulting in increased maneuverability. The through-body design also offers a high degree of flexibility since it allows battery packs of different sizes to be used.

Intuitive keypad

The keypad is very easy to operate.

Ergonomic handle

Ergonomically shaped handle for greater comfort and easy access to the controls.

Harness eyelet

A harness relieves weight for both arms and shoulders and provides a less strenuous working position.

Telescopic tube

The tube has a telescopic function for a quick cutting height adjustment.

Durability

Weatherproof (IPX4)

This battery-powered Husqvarna machine fulfills the IPX4 classification for rain resistance. This makes it a long-lasting and reliable tool that can be used all year round in all weather conditions.

Retained bar nuts

The retaining function prevents losing the bar nuts.

Low maintenance

No refilling of fuel, fewer parts to serve and an electronically controlled drive system means less downtime and low operation costs.

Rear impact guard

The rear-impact guard protects the integrated battery from wear and damage.

Performance

savE

Choose between normal or savE mode, depending on conditions, for maximum power or maximum runtime. Either way, you’ll always get a perfect result.

Efficient brushless motor

Our in-house developed, advanced brushless motor is 25% more efficient than a standard brush motor. This means that the motor provides high and consistent torque.

High chain speed

High chain speed for fast, smooth cutting.

Silent operation

The noise levels from Husky’s battery machines are up to 13 dB(A) lower than a petrol machine – which is a huge difference. A reduction of 3 dB(A) is usually perceived as a halving of the noise level. This makes work a lot more pleasant for you – and also allows you to work in the most public of settings.

One battery fits all

The battery pack is designed for demanding, long-lasting professional use. It’s designed for the products in Huskys Battery Series line-up, which allows you to quickly switch the same battery between different product applications and keep you working.
