Husqvarna’s horticultural equipment has long been popular among professional gardeners and landscapers due to its toughness and dependable performance. But these qualities also make Husqvarna tools perfect for dedicated home gardeners, so enthusiastic amateur horticulturalists will be pleased to hear that the new 129RJ petrol-powered grass trimmer has been designed specifically to offer professional quality performance in an easy-to-operate package which is even suitable for less experienced users.
Key to this is the hardworking 27.6cc two-stroke petrol engine at the Husqvarna 129RJ’s heart, which as well as providing smooth-running power to the cutting gear also works as a counterweight for improved handling. With this powerful engine the 129RJ can deliver a maximum cutting speed of up to 8,000RPM, while an easy-access primer bulb and a user-friendly Smart Start® system are included for hassle-free ignition. Here we begin to see how the 129RJ manages to strike an impressive balance between outstanding cutting performance and user convenience.
On which note we will take a moment to consider the pleasing versatility offered by the Husqvarna 129RJ’s cutting equipment. This incorporates both a dual nylon line ‘Tap & Go’ trimmer head (ideal for edging lawn borders and trimming long grass) and a tough metal brushcutter blade (perfect for tackling tougher vegetation). Being able to switch between these cutting heads means that you can use the 129RJ for all domestic trimming duties, with outstanding results guaranteed regardless of whether you are simply tidying up spots missed while mowing or clearing denser patches of nettles and thick weeds. Both cutting modes also benefit from the inclusion of a high-torque grass bevel gear, designed to hold the cutting gear parallel to the ground for optimal cutting performance.
The semi-automatic ‘Tap & Go’ line advancement system on the Husqvarna 129RJ’s trimmer head is another handy addition, allowing you to simply tap the cutting head against the ground and feed the nylon line to an optimal working length. A protective combi-guard, meanwhile, is included to prevent stones, clippings and dirt from being kicked up during operation. Additional features included to further ensure safe, comfortable operation include the auto-return stop switch and a loop handle. The latter of these combines with the 129RJ’s light build (only 4.75kg without cutting equipment), single-shoulder harness and intuitive controls to help ensure accuracy in tricky areas, such as when trimming around ornaments and along lawn borders. As such, with Husqvarna’s 129RJ you’ll find it remarkably simple to achieve professional quality results in your garden.
