Husqvarna puts versatility in your hands

Hard work challenges both man and machine. A physical profession like landscaping or grounds maintenance is demanding, which is why Husqvarna builds machines that are not only reliable, powerful and efficient but also ergonomic, well-balanced and light weight so that your job becomes a little easier on you.

Husqvarna grass trimmers, brushcutters and clearing saws are equipped with X-Torq® engine technology, which reduces exhaust emissions by up to 75% and increases fuel efficiency, without compromising on power. Intelligent design features deliver exceptional ergonomics including a well-balanced design for easy manoeuvrability and adjustable off-set handles to ensure a comfortable operating stance. The engine and starter on Husqvarna’s machines have been designed with Smart Start® ensuring quick starts with minimum effort.  Effective Low Vib® anti-vibration dampeners absorb vibration, reducing the impact on the user’s arms and hands.

Finding the specific machine to meet your needs is a key decision when equipping your fleet:

  • A trimmer head successfully tackles dense grass and weeds and cleans up areas where lawnmowers cannot reach and that are not suitable for lawn mowing.
  • A grass blade is suited to dense, coarse grass but not woody growth. It slices through tough brush and mows down weeds with ease, reducing the time spent cutting and clearing by almost half.
  • A saw blade excels on woody vines and other thick growth, making short work of saplings and small trees.

The Husqvarna 345FR brushcutter is equipped standard with trimmer head, grass blade and saw blade making it ideal for those who are looking for a flexible solution. The 345FR incorporates three benefits in one effective package. Use the trimmer head to trim lawn edges and clear nettles and unwanted shrubs. Attach the grass blade when you need to clear higher grass or heavier brushwood. Finally attach the saw blade when you need to cut down smaller trees.

To ensure comfortable operation, the 345FR is sold with a Balance XTM harness.  The comfortable chest plate and hip belt distributes the load evenly while the floating pad system reduces the risk of back strain.  The ventilated back plate and wide shoulder pads also assist with even weight distribution.
