Husqvarna continues expansion of 500 Series with two new products

Professional landscapers and tree care experts demand durability, power and versatility from their power equipment products. Those attributes – plus innovative technology – are key features in the two products that Husqvarna most recently added to its extensive, ever-growing 500 Series platform of high-performance professional handheld equipment.

The new products – Husqvarna 525L professional trimmer and Husqvarna 525HF3S hedge trimmer – are designed specifically to enable professionals to complete demanding jobs with optimal efficiency and effectiveness. Like other Husqvarna 500 Series products, the 525L professional trimmer and 525HF3S hedge trimmer feature advanced X-Torq engine technology, which combines high performance with fuel economy and lower exhaust emissions, and the LowVib anti-vibration dampener system, which maximizes user comfort with a floating throttle handle.

Ideal for semi-professional use, the Husqvarna 525L professional trimmer is a robust, sturdy and durable machine built for demanding trimming at an economical price. Intuitive controls make choke and purge easy to reach and understand, and Smart Start is designed to get the engine running with minimal effort. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) in the U.S. is $299.95.

The Husqvarna 525HF3S is a powerful yet low-weight, fixed-pole hedge trimmer with a durable design, including an innovative in-line gearbox, to withstand tough work. It is ideal for the professional landscaper who balances extreme durability with safety, as it allows the operator better control through superior balance and optimal positioning. The MSRP in the U.S. is $439.95.

“Tough jobs require reliable performance, and these stellar additions to the Husqvarna 500 Series are built to accommodate the needs of the professional,” said Jeff Dewosky, vice president and general manager, Husqvarna North America. “The entire line is popular with professionals who demand versatility, durability and innovative features. Professionals can expect further additions to the 500 Series, which will extend Husqvarna’s reputation for building long-lasting, high-quality products that are ‘ready when you are.’”

The Husqvarna 500 Series of trimmers, brushcutters, clearing saws, backpack blowers, hedge trimmers and chain saws is available at authorized Husqvarna dealers throughout North America and globally. At these dealerships, specially trained authorized technicians service all Husqvarna equipment, and dealers have easy access to Husqvarna genuine spare parts. Professional landscapers and tree care experts have the option of financing their purchases through the Husqvarna Fleet Finance program.
