Husqvarna T525 Review

The T525 represents the next generation of top-handed chainsaws from Husqvarna. Lightweight and ergonomic, the chainsaw is designed for professional tree care workers, as well as part-time contractors. The low-emissions X-Torq engine delivers exceptional power during trimming and pruning work.


Flip-up tank cap

Easy to open and close when refueling. Even with thick winter gloves.

Belt eye let

Connecting the saw to the climbing harness is quick and easy.

Auto return stop switch

Automatically resets the switch to the ON position for an easier startup.

Chain tensioning from the side

Quicker and more convenient chain tensioning compared to front tensioning.

Quick release air filter cover

Facilitates cleaning and replacement of the air filter. Saves time when cleaning or changing.


Smart Start

Engine and starter design to start the machine quickly with minimum effort. And thanks to the air purge, starting a cold engine requires less effort.


Probably the best thing about newer Husqvarna saws. It reduces emissions by up to 75% and fuel consumption by up to 20%. You spend less on gas and breathe less fumes. It also makes the saw CARB compliant.
