Husqvarna brush cutter offers noise reduction with battery power
Husqvarna Battery brushcutters offer new possibilities to old tasks.
In public areas sensitive to noise pollution, these battery brush cutters can be used for longer periods due to noise levels being reduced by up to 18db(A). IPX4 weatherproof rating also allows work to continue in all weather conditions.
In additional a dual direction trimmer head offers the operator the option to choose from clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation from a button on the intuitive keypad, reducing the amount of debris scattered on roads and paths. The high handlebar increases freedom when working on slopes and the Balance 35B harness distributes weight evenly between shoulders, chest and back.
Husqvarna Bio-X biodegradable trimmer line is now available, made from a high grade polymer with a patented mineral additive that degrades the waste trimmer line in 7 to 12 years.
Husqvarna professional batteries are compatible with all 500 series machines allowing operators to choose from three integrated batteries and two backpack batteries.
