Husqvarna 536Li XP Review

For professionally oriented users who want a lightweight, high-performance, lithium-ion battery-powered chainsaw. The Husqvarna 536Li XP is perfect for carpenters, contractors, and tree care workers. Features excellent ergonomics and high chain speed. Battery and charger not included.


Intuitive keypad

It couldn’t be any simpler. There are just two buttons. One for power and the second for savE mode.

Gear up for nonstop operation

Husqvarna battery accessories allow you to carry on and get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Flip-up tank cap

The flip-up oil tank cap is easy to open and close, even with gloves.

One battery fits all

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


Retained bar nuts

Prevents losing the bar nuts.


The chainsaw is IPX4 rain resistant, which makes it long-lasting and you can use it all year round in all weather conditions.

Low maintenance

Unlike gas chainsaws, this one doesn’t need any fuel refilling. There are also fewer parts to serve and an electronically controlled drive system means less downtime and low operation costs.


Inertia activated chain brake

In the case of kickback, the inertia mechanism will stop the chain from running. This significantly reduces the risk of injury.


Gas performance

The battery pack provides equally high power, reliable operation, and a long lifetime as gas-powered chainsaws – without any direct emissions. And you also get as much done on a single charge, as you would manage on one tank of gas.


A power-saving mode. Depending on conditions, you can choose between normal or savE mode, for maximum power or maximum runtime.

Efficient brushless motor

Husqvarna’s 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

For fast and smooth cutting.
