Husqvarna 543RS Petrol Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    Maintaining a large property will necessitate a variety of landscaping jobs, so the more tasks you can tackle with one tool the better (lest you are forced to convert part of said estate for storage of excess horticultural equipment). When it comes to trimming grass this means you need a brushcutter which is just as effective for precision cutting around lawn borders and obstacles as it is clearing denser areas of scrub. This kind of versatility is where Husqvarna’s mid-range brushcutters excel though, so private and professional users alike will find themselves well served by the new 543 RS petrol brushcutter when faced with challenging landscaping work.

    Powered by a hi-tech 40.1cc X-Torq® two-stroke petrol engine, the 543 RS is capable of delivering up to 1.5kW of cutting power at a maximum of 9,000RPM. The 543 RS’s impressive clout doesn’t come at the expense of efficiency, however, with Husqvarna’s famous X-Torq® technology optimising the combustion process to reduce harmful exhaust emissions by up to 75% and increase fuel efficiency by up to 20%. And with an auto-return stop switch and an easy-access primer bulb both also included to facilitate quick starting, the power of the 543 RS doesn’t come at the expense of user-friendliness either!

    The versatility of the 543 RS, meanwhile, is underlined by its dual cutting system, with both a nylon line ‘Tap & Go’ trimmer head and a tough metal brushcutter blade supplied as standard. The nylon line trimmer head is a great tool for general grass cutting work, especially when precision is required or when maintaining lawn borders. The brushcutter blade, on the other hand, comes into its own when clearing scrub or dense weeds, providing a little extra bite then the going gets tough. Both, however, benefit immensely from Husqvarna’s optimised bevel gear design, which as well as increasing the torque available at the cutting head also holds the cutting gear parallel to the ground to improve the quality of cut achieved.

    Regardless of whether you are currently using the blade or line trimmer, however, you’ll receive outstanding protection from the 543 RS’s tough plastic combi-guard, which helps to prevent stones and other detritus from being thrown up by the cutting gear. The ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system, meanwhile, enables quick advancement of the cutting line without interrupting your working day; simply tap the cutting head against the ground and the line will be set to an optimum working length.

    As this might indicate, unlike some commercial-grade brushcutters, Husqvarna’s 543 RS is reassuringly user-friendly. In addition to the ‘Tap & Go’ system, the 543 RS features a bike-style dual handlebar and a well-balanced design to ensure complete control as you work. This dual handle system is particularly handy when dealing with larger areas of long grass, allowing you to achieve a natural scything motion with the cutter head to boost efficiency when taking on heavier workloads.

    The bonus inclusion of a supportive double harness, moreover, means that the 543 RS provides freedom of movement to match its ease of handling. And since the 543 RS is built for professional use Husqvarna has made the sensible precaution making it tough and reliable, with a heavy duty clutch, a die-cast handle clamp and an efficient air filter all ensuring unbeatable dependability. As such even challenging jobs can be tackled effortlessly with Husqvarna’s 543 RS, with years of superb results guaranteed.

    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.
