Husqvarna 525LST Mark II

Husqvarna releases new 525LST trimmer and 580 backpack blower

The Husqvarna 525LST string trimmer is the perfect choice for commercial sites and combines a high-torque gearbox with a larger fuel tank. The 22-ounce fuel tank feeds a 25.4cc displacement engine pushing 1.34 horsepower. Concealed cables prevent snagging and damage, while the solid-steel driveshaft and rugged skid plate offer increased durability to this lightweight, powerful trimmer. Weighing only 11 pounds, the 525LST string trimmer also incorporates LowVib anti-vibration technology, rubberized grips and flexible trigger, reducing stress and strain on hands and arms, and offering extended comfort throughout the workday.

Providing 15-percent more blowing force than its predecessor, the 580 backpack blower also boasts best-in-class support with cushioned straps, ventilated back pad and hip belt that reduce fatigue and provide all-day comfort. With an industry-leading fuel tank capacity of 89.7 fluid ounces, the 580 allows more running time. More running time in between refueling and all-day comfort means fewer stops, and more efficient work time. The high-compression X-TORQ engine, coupled with large-diameter high-flow elbow and carbon plastic fan design, instantly delivers 1,000 cfm of air flow and 220 mph air speed.
