Husqvarna sets the bar high with new 543 XP® chainsaw

The new Husqvarna pro-range 543 XP® is lighter, faster and remarkably compact. Find out more about this saw.
When professionals need to do serious work, one chainsaw feature becomes more important than any other: weight. Ready for any professional grade task the new Husqvarna 543 XP® can be used for hours at a time, without the burden of heavy equipment. 

Outfitted with X-Torq™ the 543 XP® has 20 per cent less fuel consumption and up to 75 per cent less emission. Couple this with Husqvarna’s Smart Start® technology, which reduces pull cord resistance allowing for a quick start, the 543 XP® is designed to save time and money, making it the ideal companion on any job site. 

“Pushing the product weight down while maintaining pro-range performance was no easy task,” says Scott Ride, President of Husqvarna Canada. “That said, we couldn’t be happier with the 543 XP®. Not only did we succeed in keeping all of the prioritized features, but we’ve also managed to add a little extra something – noticeably increased engine efficiency.” 

Extraordinary limbing performance has been a main characteristic for the Husqvarna pro chainsaws for years. Now, with the launch of the 543 XP®, a new weight-standard of 4.5 kg has been set in the pro-range. This extends the gap to the closest competing product to 0.2 kg, a great deal to professionals using their chainsaw for hours on end.

This is the Husqvarna 543 XP®

  • Husqvarna’s lightest pro-range chainsaw – 4.5 kg: Minimized user fatigue and extreme maneuverability
  • Outstanding power-to-weight ratio
  • High rpm’s and quick acceleration equals high chain speed and fantastic limbing performance
  • X-Torq™: Up to 20 per cent less fuel consumption and up to 75 percent less emission compared to an ordinary 2-stroke engine
  • Air Injection: Reduced wear and longer operation between filter cleaning
The process of making a machine as compact as the 543 XP® automatically affects the point of gravity, which has been carefully placed to add instead of subtract from the overall experience. By moving the point of gravity towards the center of the top of the product, the result is a noticeably more balanced operation. In addition to the T543 XP®, Husqvarna has expanded their 500 XP series of chainsaw with the launch of the T540 XP®. Available at Husqvarna dealerships now the T540 XP® is the ultimate arborist saw combining superb manoeuverability, great engine performance, a reliable design, exceptional balance and ergonomics, and a low weight.
