Husqvarna 128C Petrol Trimmer

  • Product Details

    The amount of work involved in keeping a garden in good shape depends to some extent upon how much you care about your garden. Perhaps for some people, simply running a mower across the lawn once in a while is enough. For anyone who enjoys a well groomed lawn and a tidy, ordered garden, however, a little something extra is necessary, as most conventional lawnmowers will struggle to achieve a neat finish on edges, borders and other hard to access parts of your lawn. This is where a grass trimmer such as Husqvarna’s 128C is an invaluable tool; a tough but quiet running and easy to operate trimmer, the 128C will make light work of edging the borders of your lawn and is even powerful enough to be used for trimming larger areas of overgrown grass.

    It is in terms of user friendliness which this grass trimmer truly excels, with an ergonomically designed loop handle and light build (with an overall weight of only 4.4kg) helping to ensure that the 128C is pleasingly comfortable to operate and easy to control. This impressive level of comfort and control is further bolstered by the 128C’s specially extended shaft, designed to increase the reach of the trimmer and boost productivity by offering an optimised cutting position.

    Power, meanwhile, is provided by a hard working and clean running 28cc E-Tech® II petrol engine, built for reduced exhaust emissions without any loss in power. For added convenience, the engine also incorporates a number of features which combine to help you get the 128C running with the minimum of hassle; this includes a fuel pump which ensures easier hot and cold starting by pre-priming the carburettor, as well as a user friendly Smart Start® system which reduces the amount of effort required to use the recoil pull by up to 40%. A clever auto-return engine stop switch, meanwhile, automatically resets to the ‘ON’ position for completely trouble-free starting.

    Last, but not least, is the 128C’s efficient a dual nylon line T25 trimmer head, which is versatile enough to take on either precision trimming or more heavy duty work clearing larger patches of overgrown grass. Furthermore, for added convenience the trimming head also features a superbly practical ‘Tap & Go’ line advancement system; simply tap the trimmer head against the ground and the cutting line will be extended to an optimal length, thus ensuring outstanding ease of use as well as a pristine finish.

    About Husqvarna
    Believe it or not, Husqvarna did not start off by manufacturing any type of garden machinery at all. Instead they were established in 1689 as a weapons foundry supplying the Swedish Armed Forces. During the subsequent years, diverse and varied products have been produced, from sewing machines and cast iron kitchen equipment through to bicycles and motorbikes. It wasn't until 1959 that Husqvarna finally made its first chainsaws and engine-driven lawnmowers. The company's reputation for build quality and durability of product has never been in question. This is probably the reason for their line of professional petrol chainsaws being so popular with forestry workers across the globe.

    Husqvarna are not afraid to innovate either, introducing the robotic, solar powered Automower® in 1995 and continually looking to improve their existing products by listening to their customers. Jumping onto the grass recycling bandwagon, they also manufacture some of the best mulching lawnmowers available, incorporating Bioclip® technology into the vast majority of their petrol lawn mowers. Be left in no doubt, if you buy any product from the Husqvarna garden machinery stable, you will be buying into Swedish quality that is built to last.
