New series of Husqvarna walk-behind lawnmowers designed for homeowners who want better grass collection and easy manoeuvrability

15.12.2015

Husqvarna — one of the world’s leading producers of forest, park and garden products — unveils a range of three new walk-behind lawnmowers that brings together improved grass collection efficiency and enhanced usability into one product.

The LC 247 series of lawnmowers grants users one of the best collection performances on the market, with a newly engineered collect blade and cutting deck design that generates up to 18% more air flow into the chute compared to other lawn mowers currently on the market. This translates into improved grass collection, so less grass is left on the lawn after mowing, meaning users don’t have to spend extra time manually picking up clippings.

Two features contribute to an overall increase in mowing efficiency in the LC 247 range. An included collect bag is made from a durable fabric with dust blocker and has a 55 litre collection capacity, so users can mow their lawns for a longer time before having to empty the bag. Also, a wider cutting deck width at 47 cm (18.5 inch) cuts more of the lawn at one go, making the LC 247 series suitable for mid-sized lawns.

Smart solutions for easier and faster cutting
Six cutting height steps means that users can get more precise cuts, with the ability to choose from a range between 20 mm (1 inch) to 75 mm (3 inch), to suit each lawn and homeowner’s preference. Besides precision, adjustments can also be made easily and quickly, with a central cutting height adjustment system where one lever controls the entire grass cutting deck. This means no extra tools are needed, as heights can be changed with a one grip lever.

Made with a composite chassis and cutting deck means a walk-behind lawnmower that is lightweight,  and the new handle shape makes the lawnmower optimized for balance as well. This new handle shape allows users easy access to the drive bail, so mowing around obstacles is made convenient.

Handles on the LC 247 series are foldable, so it easier to transport as well as store when not in use. The height of the handle can be adjusted conveniently and without additional tools, allowing the LC 247 series to suit a variety of users. All three models are designed with users’ comfort in mind, with ergonomically-shaped handles that come in a soft grip, so mowing becomes more enjoyable.
