Husqvarna 129RJ Petrol Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    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.

    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.
