Husqvarna Introduces Professional Handheld Battery-Operated Products

Blowers, chainsaws and trimmers deliver performance and durability with zero direct emission

MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 11, 2016 /CNW/ - As the world's largest producer of outdoor power equipment, Husqvarna strives to offer new and improved ways to make the outdoors great. With the launch of the Husqvarna professional grade battery-operated products, users will have an even wider range of high-performance tools to get the job done more efficiently. The new series continues to offer traditional performance but with a new power source.

"This new handheld battery series features a unique combination of powerful machinery and cleaner operation," says Michelle Sordi, Director of Marketing, Husqvarna Canada. "We are providing environmentally-conscious professional users the convenience of emissions free tools that don't compromise on performance."

Each new product from the series is equipped with a high-capacity 36V Li-Ion battery that delivers the performance of a gasoline powered engine with a cleaner and quieter experience. Through battery interchangeability, users can also transfer the battery from one handheld product in the series to another and continue working uninterrupted. Additionally, these battery-operated tools require minimal maintenance. An electronically controlled drive system means less downtime and parts to service, resulting in reduced operating costs over time.

The Husqvarna Battery Series features an assortment of blowers, chainsaws and trimmers that provide high-quality performance for both professional users and do-it-yourself consumers.

Battery Chainsaws
