Husqvarna, the global leader in outdoor powered products, is offering consumers a free 2010 Farmers’ Almanac when they participate in Fall Demo Days, September 8 through October 31, by testing Husqvarna outdoor power equipment designed to tackle the toughest tasks on their to-do lists. The Farmers’ Almanac has long been a compass for people who want to gather information to better prepare for the seasons, just as Husqvarna is a resource for landowners who relish the power of “Mastering their Great Outdoors.”

From blowing leaves to tilling the soil and cutting firewood, Husqvarna equipment gives users the power of satisfaction with premium results and precision performance. For example, Husqvarna’s X-Torq® engine technology, featured on the 460 Rancher chain saw and the 150 BT backpack blower, produce maximum power with up to 20 percent less fuel consumption and up to 60 percent less emissions.

“The 2010 Farmers’ Almanac combined with Husqvarna’s legendary line of outdoor power equipment gives do-it-yourselfers the tools necessary to accomplish many seasonal tasks,” said Peter Geiger, Philom. Editor of Farmers’ Almanac.

In addition to weather forecasts, the 2010 Farmers’ Almanac offers many practical ideas and articles on what to do now for a better lawn and garden in the spring, a 12-month gardening by the moon calendar, and a year’s worth of “best days” to mow grass (for both increasing and decreasing growth), prune, dig holes, cut firewood and more.
