There are many qualities you will want from a high quality commercial grade brushcutter. Manoeuvrability and reach, for example, are important when cutting grass in hard to access areas or on rough terrain. Power, meanwhile, is necessary for taking on bigger jobs and clearing areas of dense vegetation. Likewise, precision is important as you will want your brushcutter to be able to tackle fine trimming work, such as edging lawn borders. All of these are, thankfully, characteristics of Husqvarna’s 500 series of professional quality brushcutters, among which the 545RX is indubitably one of the finest.
As impressively tough as it is easy to use, the 545RX features a powerful and clean running 45.7cc X-Torq® petrol engine built with a fuel pump to help ensure easy starting on colder mornings. The drive system also features Smart Start® technology and a handy auto-return stop switch which automatically resets after use to help make starting completely trouble-free. Moreover, although the engine is already superbly efficient and smooth running, the 545RX incorporates a clever LowVib® vibration reduction system to help further ensure your comfort and convenience during operation.
The 545RX is also notable for the range of cutting options it offers, with both a sturdy T35 dual nylon trimmer head and a tough metal grass blade for cutting denser vegetation supplied as standard. The nylon trimmer head features a pleasingly practical ‘Tap & Go’ feed system, enabling you to advance the nylon cutting line to an optimal working length quickly and efficiently, while switching between the trimmer head and grass blade is made simple by the clever design of Husqvarna’s protective combi-guard. Moreover, both cutting modes benefit from the inclusion of a high torque bevel gear positioned parallel to the ground for optimum performance, and for the very toughest jobs, including occasional forestry, you can also equip the 545RX with an optional saw blade (available separately).
Equally fantastic, however, is the ergonomic design of the 545RX. The extended shaft, for example, combines with the 545RX’s offset dual handlebars to provide a perfect working position and excellent freedom of movement to help boost productivity and ensure a consistent finish. Moreover, the handlebars can also be adjusted to suit your personal requirements and feature soft-grip handles to help ensure your comfort during extended periods of use. Husqvarna’s 545RX also comes with a supportive Balance X harness to help prevent strain when taking on bigger workloads, making this brushcutter ideal for even the most demanding landscaping jobs.
