Husqvarna 226HS75S Petrol Hedge Trimmer

  • Product Details

    Single-sided hedgetrimmers are perhaps something of an acquired taste these days, but there are many reasons for which you might choose to invest in a machine with only one cutting edge. Thankfully, Husqvarna’s 226 HS75 S is a prime example of the advantages of such a machine; a single-sided hedgetrimmer designed for heavy duty commercial use, the 226 HS75 S is tough, powerful and capable of producing a pristine finish on straight sections of hedge with magnificent ease.

    This is principally due to the fact that, by only having one cutting edge, single-sided hedgetrimmers can be fitted with a longer blade with no negative impact on handling or manoeuvrability. The 226 HS75 S, for example, features a 75cm single-edged trimmer blade capable of delivering up to 4,100 cuts per minute and featuring a tooth gap of 28mm. The blade’s razor-sharp, hardened teeth are designed to maintain sharpness and produce a dependably pristine finish, while the extended reach of the blade makes heavier workloads eminently manageable. This makes the 226 HS75 S ideal for trimming the extensive hedgerows of park and country estates, providing an accurate cut and satisfying efficiency.

    Another advantage of a single-sided hedgetrimmer is that it can be equipped with a cutting collector. This works by preventing cut material from becoming trapped in dense foliage and impeding your progress, removing clippings as you cut and thus significantly increasing productivity. This further improves the efficiency of the 226 HS75 S, while the lower weight (only 5.8kg excluding the cutting gear), well-balanced design and ergonomic front and rear handles of this impressive machine also improves handling for increased accuracy of cut and an even more immaculate finish.

    The 226 HS75 S is thus a truly professional machine, a notion further underlined by its powerful 23.6cc X-Torq® petrol engine. Featuring Husqvarna’s exclusive X-Torq® technology, this engine offers increased performance, greater fuel efficiency and lower emission levels than comparable two-stroke engines, ensuring a more environmentally friendly working experience and lower running costs in the process. The inclusion of a fuel pump and primer bulb, moreover, provides pleasingly hassle-free starting, while a capacious 0.5 litre fuel tank reduces the number of fuel stops required to allow you to work without interruption.

    Finally, the 226 HS75 S is also outstandingly durable (an important quality when taking on heavy duty cutting work), with gear components developed specifically for a long life in tough working conditions and a standalone starter unit making it easier to replace the starter cord if required. This means that the 226 HS75 S is more than capable of withstanding the day-to-day wear, tear, bumps, knock and general attrition involved in commercial landscaping work, thus ensuring excellent reliability and a long service life.

    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.
