Husqvarna unveils new wheeled edger

CHARLOTTE, NC—Making lawns look better will become easier with the new Husqvarna LE475 wheeled edger. This new, wheeled edger provides clean lines where grass meets the sidewalk, driveway and other areas.

It features two 7-inch front and two 8-inch rear retreadable tires to provide superior precision and handling.  The wheels are also adjustable to better maneuver curbs and other uneven terrain. Because it operates on four wheels, it has an ergonomic advantage over handheld edgers since the weight of the unit rests on the tires and not the arms of the user.

The cutter head adjusts to multiple positions inside of a 90-degree rotation – for edging, beveling flower beds and moderate trimming and brushcutting projects. The standard 9 inch steel blade’s 4-inch working depth delivers a precise cut along driveways and sidewalks.

With a 4.75 torque power Briggs & Stratton engine, it provides enough torque to edge through compact soils and grasses.

“For a homeowner or professional that takes great pride in their work, this is the edger for them,” said Gent Simmons, Product Manager, Husqvarna. “They will appreciate the ease of handling and overall cutting performance.”

The Husqvarna LE475 is now available at Husqvarna dealers nationwide.
