Not many people give much thought to how the large and luxurious lawns and extensive hedgerows of country manors and public parks are kept the pristine condition to which we are accustomed, but any professional gardener or landscaper will tell you that such places require a lot of intense work to keep them looking good. When faced with such a challenge, it is important that you are well prepared; a serious piece of horticultural machinery, Husqvarna’s 525RXT is a brushcutter ideal for taking on even the toughest commercial landscape maintenance work around estates, farms, parks and large gardens.
One of the obvious challenges involved in maintaining any large garden or estate is the sheer variety of jobs which need to be done, including neatening edges and borders of lawns, thinning out undergrowth and cutting back encroaching nettles, thistles and brambles. The 525RXT, however, is more than capable of taking on any of these jobs. When precision is a priority the 525RXT’s T35 dual nylon line trimmer head provides the reach and exactitude required for a pristine finish, while a handy ‘Tap & Go’ quick line feed system helps ensure ease of use; simply tap the cutting head against the ground and the cutting line will be advanced to the required working length. In situations where long, thick grass and dense weeds make using the trimmer inefficient, however, the 525RXT can also be used with a sturdy metal grass blade, ideal for clearing otherwise impenetrable areas of brush and scrub.
Both cutting systems benefit from the inclusion of a high torque bevel gear positioned parallel to the ground for optimal cutting results, while switching between the two is facilitated by the design of Husqvarna’s protective combi-guard. Moreover, if you find yourself needing to prune or trim saplings, larger bushes and other woody growths, the 525RXT can also be equipped with a durable steel saw blade (available separately). Power, meanwhile, is supplied via an efficient 25.4cc X-Torq® petrol engine, built to reduce harmful exhaust emissions by up to 75% and with a fuel pump to help ensure quick starting on colder mornings. For added ease of operation, the 525RXT also features a convenient auto-return stop switch and a clever Smart Start® system for trouble-free starting.
Despite all this power, it is equally vital that the 525RXT is also easy and comfortable to use. The adjustable ‘cow horn’ style dual handlebars, for example, are offset to place the cutting head at the centre of the user’s body, enabling a smooth sweeping action to increase productivity when cutting long grass. A vibration-dampening LowVib® system and a supportive Balance 55 harness, meanwhile, help ensure that you remain comfortable and in control in even the toughest cutting conditions, while also enjoying the effortlessly outstanding results this potent brushcutter is able to achieve.
