Husqvarna 226HS99S Petrol Hedge Trimmer

  • Product Details

    The vast majority of hedgetrimmers on the market these days feature a double-sided blade, largely on a ‘more-blades-the-better’ basis. There are, however, still advantages to having a single-sided blade, the most prominent of which is that it allows you to increase the cutter length without the machine becoming unwieldy. Husqvarna’s 226 HS99 S takes advantage of this fact to a pleasingly ludicrous extent, boasting a remarkable 108cm blade for incredible efficiency when trimming long, straight sections of hedgerows in parks or on large estates.

    This blade features razor-sharp, hardened teeth and a tooth gap of 28mm for a recommended maximum cutting diameter of 22mm, all while delivering up to 4,100 cuts per minute. This means that the 226 HS99 S is perfect for taking on tough hedges, shrubs and bushes, with the extended reach of the blade optimised for quick and efficient trimming of the extensive hedgerows of parks, large formal gardens and country estates.

    For even greater efficiency, the 226 HS99 S also features a powerful 23.6cc X-Torq® petrol engine. Husqvarna’s exclusive X-Torq® technology increases power output, but it also reduces harmful particle emissions and fuel consumption. This makes the 226 HS99 S cheaper to run and better for the environment than a hedgetrimmer fitted with a conventional two-stroke engine, as well as incredibly effective when faced with taxing horticultural work. For trouble-free starting the 226 HS99 S also features a fuel pump and a primer bulb, while the inclusion of a high capacity 0.5 litre fuel tank reduces the frequency with which you will have to stop and refuel.

    Another advantage of the 226 HS99 S being a single-sided trimmer is that it is lighter than an equivalent double-sided machine, which when combined with the 226 HS99 S’s well-balanced design and ergonomic front and rear handles helps to ensure ease of handling and increased accuracy of cut. This in turn makes it easier to achieve the kind of high quality finish required for professional work, as does the machine’s overall durability and reliability. The hardened steel blades, for example, are designed to maintain their sharpness over time, while the gear components have been specifically developed to withstand the tough working conditions faced by professional horticulturalists on a day-to-day basis. All of this helps to make the 226 HS99 S one of the best single-sided hedgetrimmers available on the market today, offering superb cutting power, reassuring dependability and exceptional manoeuvrability in a single easy to use unit.

    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.
