Powered by a hardworking and superbly efficient 23.6cc X-Torq petrol engine, this is a professional quality single-sided hedgetrimmer fitted with an incredible 108cm single-edged trimmer blade (the longest in Husqvarnas range).
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.
