by editor arbor age

Whether you’re pruning, limbing, or shaping, you’re sure to find your perfect upgrade from Husqvarna’s line-up of arborist tree care saws and pole saws. They offer the ideal combination of manoeuvrability, durability and cutting capacity – tailor-made for just about any requirements, making easy work of any challenge, no matter how hard the job.

Designed for use in treetops, the battery-powered T540i XP® is a game-changer. The ideal climbing saw, for quick cuts, and the thickest of branches. The T540i XP® takes on the very same challenges a climbing arborist meets every day.

When used with the Husqvarna BLi200X battery, this powerful workhorse has capabilities equivalent to professional 40cc class petrol chainsaws, making it ideal for tree removals and smaller cutting tasks. With a completely redesigned, optimised system, power has been increased by more than 30 per cent compared to previous Husqvarna battery chainsaws, opening it up for applications that have been exclusive for petrol chainsaws.

T540i XP®
A tree cares professional’s work position can be 20 metres in the air, in the bucket or on the ground; therefore, arborists need a tool that has been designed for versatility and easy handling. The Husqvarna T540i XP® chainsaw has an advanced, user-friendly interface for quick control. A balanced saw body provides the manoeuvrability needed for difficult cuts.

The battery status is easily visible on the newly developed intuitive interface, and the chainsaw starts and stops effortlessly at the press of a button. The absence of direct emissions is one of the benefits with a battery-powered chainsaw. The user is also subject to reduced noise and fewer vibrations, which equals less strain on the body.

Keeping in mind the tough everyday work-life of arborists, only premium materials and durable components have been used, resulting in a robust chainsaw. The saw is also IPX4 classified, meaning that it can operate in challenging weather.

Power, convenience and precision, all in the same package.

T535i XP®
With superior performance and excellent ergonomics, the battery-powered T535i XP® is the ultimate arborist chainsaw. This lightweight, robust battery-powered chainsaw features excellent ergonomics, zero emissions, high performance and a high chain speed to give the perfect cut.

Weighing in at just 2.4 kg (excluding battery and cutting equipment) means you can cut with reduced strain on the body. Built to give you all the power and intuitive design of its petrol counterparts, the T535i XP® is designed to offer maximum flexibility, convenience and productivity with zero emissions. A single charge of the battery is equal to one tank of petrol in workload, and, the range of battery accessories allows you to power up from quick jobs to all-day work.

An intuitive keypad and effortless push of a button to start/stop the chainsaw are handy when stuck in a precarious position with tight and limited movement. The efficient brushless motor provides high and consistent torque, and the fitted inertia-activated chain brake reduces the likelihood of injury due to kickback.

T525
Making light work of all your pruning and trimming jobs is the Husqvarna’s T525. Designed with tree care professionals in mind, this top handle chainsaw, is one of the lightest on the market, perfect for maximum productivity with minimum downtime.

Like every other chainsaw Husqvarna makes, the T525 has powerful performance that pro users appreciate. But perhaps the greatest advantage is the maintained professional level of engine performance packed into a lower weight saw. Weighing a mere 2.7 kg (excl. cutting equipment) means that users can cut with less strain on the body.

Built-in quick acceleration makes light work of pruning, while Husqvarna’s signature X-Torq® engine ensures higher power output compared to other tree care saws, which means getting more done with the same amount of fuel. X-Torq® also means lower levels of exhaust emissions, giving users a cleaner environment to work in.

When you’re sitting high up in a tree, reliability is essential. A spring-assisted start allows for lower pull force, meaning less effort is required to start the engine, which is useful when movement is tricky. A side-mounted chain adjuster allows for easy adjustments.

Easy maintenance solutions on the T525 come in the form of a quick-release air filter, flip-up fuel tank caps, and retained bar nuts. These simple maintenance solutions make it easy for users to maintain their products, to decrease unnecessary downtime or breakdowns.

Not only does this top handle chainsaw use up to 20 per cent less fuel, but it also reduces the emissions up to 75 per cent, helping to keep the amount of exhaust gases caught in the canopy of the tree to a minimum.
