Husqvarna Continues Expansion of 500 Series

Innovative new trimmer joins the line of durable, versatile, professional products designed for the toughest jobs

MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 9, 2015 /CNW/ - 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 new trimmer Husqvarna most recently added to its extensive, ever-growing 500 Series platform of high-performance professional handheld equipment.

The new Husqvarna 525L Professional Trimmer is designed specifically to enable professionals to complete demanding jobs with optimal efficiency and effectiveness. Ideal for semi-professional use, this robust, sturdy and durable machine is built for demanding trimming at an economical price. Intuitive controls make choke and purge easy to reach and understand, and Smart Start® gets the engine running with minimal effort. Plus, like other Husqvarna 500 Series products, it features advanced X-Torq® engine technology that combines high performance with fuel economy and lower exhaust emissions; and the LowVib® anti-vibration dampener system that maximizes user comfort with a floating throttle handle. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) is $449.99.

"Tough jobs require reliable performance, and the stellar addition of this trimmer to the Husqvarna 500 Series is built to accommodate the needs of the professional," said Michelle Sordi, director of marketing, Husqvarna Canada. "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'."

With its 500 Series, Husqvarna is committed to providing the professional landscaper and tree care expert with the optimum tools needed to complete their demanding jobs. Products such as the new 543 XP weigh-in at only 4.5 kg making it the ideal companion on any job site for long hours at work. The 580BTs backpack blower is also the most powerful blower in the industry with 206 mph air speed at tube, and an ergonomic harness for greater comfort.
