Gartner Melissa McPherson om Husqvarna 525-trimmeren: "Jeg kan arbejde hele dagen uden det mindste ubehag"

Ergonomi, brændstofbesparelse og en maskine, der er en fornøjelse at arbejde med. Det er de faktorer, der gør Husqvarna 525-trimmeren værd at kæmpe om, ifølge gartner Melissa McPherson. "Min lærling og jeg kæmper dagligt om at få den," siger Melissa McPherson og tilføjer: "Jeg vinder altid."

As a grounds manager at a shopping centre on the central coast, New South Wales, Australia, Melissa McPherson does everything from lawn care to weed hacking, hedge trimming and tree removal. She knows what kind of equipment she needs to be able to work at her best. Melissa has had the Husqvarna 525 trimmer – or whipper snipper, as said in Australia – for a year now. And though she was a bit wary at first, she soon became impressed with the way it enables her to perform. “I’ve worked in horticulture for 20 years and my experience with machines as lightweight as this one is that they break easily. But this is as good as it was when I got it from the shop. And the lightness of it makes it possible for me to easily whip for two days straight, eight hours a day, without hurting my arms and shoulders”, says Melissa McPherson.

How do you compare the Husqvarna 525 with trimmers from other brands?

“It’s extremely good on fuel. I’ve tried trimmers from other brands and they go through a tank of fuel in no time compared with the Husky – and they often rattle a lot. When I’ve done three hours of whipping with another trimmer, I feel like my arms are ten feet long. With the 525 I can go all day and not even flinch. The vibration level is much lower.”

Would you recommend the Husqvarna 525 to others?

“Oh, yes. People come up to me at the shopping centre and ask me for advice and I always recommend the 525. Even if you were going to use it in your garden at home I’d say it’s worth to buy the 525 instead of the lower-priced model. I think that you will get a better trimmer that will last longer. It’s just a really nice machine to use.”
