The AutoTune™ feature provides optimal engine performance without the need for manual adjustments to the carburettor, and automatically compensates for different types of fuel qualities, blocked air filter, altitude and temperature.
“Achieving the perfect carburetor settings manually, can be a time-consuming and difficult task. Temperature, air humidity and the quality of the fuel, all comes into play. With AutoTune™ this is a thing of the past. Now the user can start the chainsaw and begin working immediately - without interruptions”, explains Mike Enderby, Husqvarna Product Manager - Handheld.
AutoTune™ runs continuously as long as the chainsaw engine is running and the carburettor auto-adjusts continuously – and this works regardless of the speed, idle or even at full throttle. AutoTune™ also compensates for dirt in the air filter, which helps to increase the chainsaw’s performance and reliability. Thanks to the constantly perfect settings, the fuel consumption overall is also reduced.
The electronics of the AutoTune™ feature will also be instrumental in pushing the boundaries when it comes to service and repairs. With Husqvarna’s new Engine Diagnostic Tool, servicing dealers will be able to monitor the chainsaw’s operational information via a computer program – a solution that will lead to a quicker and more accurate diagnosis.
AutoTune™ is currently available on the Husqvarna 570 AutoTune™ and 576 XP AutoTune™ chainsaws, which come packed with additional advanced features including Husqvarna’s X-Torq® engine technology, LowVib® anti-vibration system, SmartStart® easy starting solutions and for added convenience, a side-mounted chain tensioner, plus a quick-release air filter and cover for simple maintenance.
Mike concludes that, “With the introduction of the AutoTune™ chainsaws, Husqvarna provides users with the ultimate combination – More power, fewer emissions and no time consuming adjustments, without compromising on performance”.
