Powerful, versatile machine for frequent trimming of thick grass and weed. Equipped with a strong, fuel-efficient X-Torq engine and an efficient air filter that provides less engine wear and service. Trimmer head, grass blade and combi-guard included.
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.
