Updated Sep 10, 2014

IMG_1868For landscapers who are seeking a green solution, Husqvarna is set to release a line of battery-operated outdoor power equipment.

Each outdoor product is equipped with a Li-Ion 36 V battery that features SavE mode technology, which can be activated with a button to lower output performance and increase battery life in less demanding situations.

The line is set to go into production by the spring of 2014.

The products include:

  • 536LiHD60X Hedge Trimmer: Delivering 100 minutes of run time, it features a pivoting rear handle and a professional-grade laser-cut 60 cm blade.
  • Trimmers: Three new trimmers – the curved 136LiL; the straight loop 536LiL; and the straight bullhorn 536LiR. Each provides stepless electronic speed control, with the latter two models featuring a brushless motor and rotation direction change for professional use.
  • Chainsaws: Three new chainsaws – the 436Li, 536LiXP and T536LiXP (for arborists).

The company also released its latest accessories at GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky.
