Husqvarna 522HD60X Petrol Hedge Trimmer

  • Product Details

    As Billy Ocean once sang; when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Wise words indeed, and when it comes to tough horticultural hedgerow maintenance work there are few machines tougher than Husqvarna’s 522 HD60X. A professional grade hedgetrimmer designed for heavy duty agricultural, horticultural and commercial use, the 522 HD60XS is durable, exceptionally well-balanced, powerful and reassuringly reliable. Pretty much everything you want from a top quality hedgetrimmer, in fact.

    At the heart of this impressive machine is a hi-tech 23.6cc X-Torq® two-stroke petrol engine, built with a design which reduces harmful exhaust emissions by up to 75% while increasing fuel efficiency by up to 20%. This means that the 522 HD60X is cheaper and cleaner running than many comparable hedgetrimmers, which has to be a good thing. As well as being good for your pocket and the environment this powerful engine also features a fuel pump to ensure hassle-free starting, so is thus pleasingly easy to get running (even on cold mornings).

    Cutting power, meanwhile, comes via a potent 60cm double-edged trimmer blade. This tough cutter is capable of delivering up to 4,100 cuts per minute and features a tooth gap width of 28mm, providing a recommended maximum cutting diameter of 22mm. The blade’s razor-sharp, hardened cutting teeth, moreover, are specifically designed for optimum cutting performance, tackling tough vegetation with satisfying ease. To ensure accuracy of cut, meanwhile, the 522 HD60X’s rear handle features a five-position swivel mechanism, allowing you to adapt the working angle to the situation at hand. When cutting the sheer tops and sides of shaped hedgerows, for example, adjusting the rear handle will allow you to maintain a neutral hand position and thus achieve greater comfort and precision as you work.

    Other handy ergonomic features which the 522 HD60X can boast include Husqvarna’s clever LowVib® technology, which isolates the user’s hands from engine vibration to prevent strain during prolonged periods of use, as well as a standalone starter unit which makes it easier to replace the starter cord if required. As the 522 HD60X is designed for professional use, however, it is important that it is also rugged enough to stand up to the rigors of such work. Luckily, Husqvarna’s exceptional engineering and dedication to build quality means that this machine is just about as sturdy as they come, with its components developed specifically for a long life under tough conditions. As such, the 522 HD60X would make a steadfast companion for any professional gardener, providing an excellent method of keeping unruly, fast-growing hedgerows under complete control.

    The 522HD60X superceeeds the 226HD60S.

    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.
