Husqvarna 520iHE3 Cordless Hedgetrimmer

  • Product Details

    The Husqvarna 520iHE3 is a highly efficient battery powered pole hedgetrimmer, designed for maintenance work in noise sensitive areas such as parks, hospitals and public spaces. With zero direct emissions and extremely quiet operation (just 84dB at operator’s ear), this machine can happily be used around schools and hotels with relatively little disturbance. With a maximum reach of 3.5 metres, the high cutting speed Husqvarna 520iHE3 is designed to tackle both light and tough hedgerows with ease.

    Part of the charm of Husqvarna’s battery range is the fact that the batteries themselves are interchangeable. As a result, the tools are sold ‘bare’ (that is, without a battery or charger included). This massively reduces the costs, so you can purchase just one or two batteries and run all of your Husqvarna battery products off those. With this particular tool, Husqvarna recommend the BLi200 5.2Ah battery and the QC330 professional charger. The battery is designed to be charged up to 1500 times, which, given the 520iHE3 can cut lighter hedges for up to 2 hours and 5 minutes on a single charge, is quite a lot for your buck. Your battery will be 80% charged in just 30 minutes, or fully charged in 50 minutes, meaning you’ll be back up and running in no time.

    The intuitive key pad starts and stops your new hedge trimmer with a quick press of a button, and the high torque motor will give a constant level of torque no matter what the cutting speed. Choose between normal or save mode depending on conditions to get maximum power or to improve run time.

    High quality is ensured by the brushless motor which was developed in-house at Husqvarna. 25% more efficient than a standard brush motor. The magnesium gearbox is protected, along with the motor, is protected by robust metal housing.

    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.
