Husqvarna T540i XP Review

The T540i XP is Husqvarna’s most powerful battery-powered top-handle chainsaw, equivalent to a 40cc professional gas saw when fitted with a BLi200X battery. This saw is the ideal tool for all professional tree care. Designed for arborists who want a smooth, high-performance chainsaw. Features excellent ergonomics, high chain speed, low weight, and all the benefits of battery power without compromising cutting performance. Plus, the integrated connectivity makes it easy to keep track of usage stats, service history, and last known location in the Husqvarna Fleet Services app.


Husqvarna Connect

With the smart Husqvarna Connect app, you’ll have easy access to helpful tips, manuals, and spare part recommendations. For your connected Bluetooth equipment, the app also provides additional information such as runtime and charging status as well as maintenance and service needs. The app can be downloaded, free of charge, from the App Store or Google Play. Not yet available in all markets.

Unobstructed view

While doing precise cuts, the handguard design allows for an unobstructed view.

Rope attachment

Hoisting the saw into a tree is easy thanks to a sturdy point for fastening a rope.

Intuitive keypad

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

Flip-up tank cap

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

Belt eyelet

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

Gear up for nonstop operation

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

Retained bar nuts

Prevents losing the bar nuts.

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.



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

Automatic shutdown

The saw automatically shuts down after 3 minutes of idling. This prolongs the battery life and lowers the risk of injuries when left unattended. If the chain brake is activated, the shutdown occurs after 30 seconds.


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.


High chain speed

For fast and smooth cutting.

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.


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