Husqvarna 576XPG AutoTune Petrol Chainsaw

  • Product Details

    Alexandr Sokolov, winner of the gold medal at the World Logging Championship 2012 in Belarus and thus officially pretty good with a chainsaw, was more than happy to sing the praises of Husqvarna’s 576XP AT in the wake of his victory; “I have always used Husqvarna chainsaws,” he said, “I really like the performance of the 576 XP and I use it with great pleasure. It is more powerful and has higher turnover, which provides the additional speed needed for winning a championship.” Of course, this power and speed is also pretty handy for taking on tough forestry work, including felling large trees, de-limbing and log bucking, so the 576XP AT is also popular among professional chainsaw users worldwide. The 576XPG AT, however, is a potent rear handle forestry chainsaw which offers all of the impressive cutting power of the 576XP AT but with the additional advantage of having heated handles!

    This might not seem like much of an improvement to those who haven’t spent long days outside in the cold and damp cutting with a powerful saw, but for those who have the benefits should be obvious. Nor is it simply a matter of comfort, as the heated handles also prevent hands from becoming numb and offer protection against hand-arm vibration syndrome, thus ensuring that you stay in complete control at all times. With the 576XPG AT also featuring a heated carburettor (in addition to Husqvarna’s clever Smart Start® system) to help ensure quick starting on cold mornings, this outstanding saw is therefore much safer and more convenient to use when taking on heavy duty cutting work.

    Powered by a hardworking 73.5cc X-Torq® two-stroke petrol engine, featuring a design which optimises combustion for increased torque, enhanced fuel efficiency and lower emission levels, the 576XPG AT also stands out for featuring Husqvarna’s brilliant AutoTune system. This clever little device senses changes in the working/atmospheric conditions and automatically adjusts the engine performance accordingly. This includes factors such as the fuel mix, temperature, humidity and altitude at which you are working, so regardless of the job at hand you can rest assured of outstanding results. What’s more, with the 20% increase in fuel efficiency and a high capacity 0.7 litre fuel tank the 576XPG AT will allow you to work for longer without interruption than a comparable saw powered by a conventional two-stroke engine.

    Available as standard with a 45cm (18”), 50cm (20”) or 60cm (24”) guide bar and a 3/8” pitch chain (please call or e-mail to specify the preferred bar/chain combination for your order), the 576XPG AT will power through even tough material with almost insouciant ease and therefore makes even the most challenging cutting work much simpler. To further ensure consistently professional quality performance the 576XPG AT also features an easy-access side-mounted chain tensioner, along with an adjustable oil pump to help regulate chain lubrication. An effective inertia-activated chain brake, meanwhile, offers vital protection against dangerous kickback events.

    Surprisingly sleek, compact and well-balanced for such a powerful saw, the 576XPG AT has also been designed to be easy to handle and operate. The handles, for example, in addition to being heated feature an ergonomic design which ensures a steady, comfortable grip and exceptional control, while an innovative vibration cancelling LowVib® system is included to enhance comfort and prevent strain over extended periods of use. Equally handy are the centrifugal air cleaning system, snap-lock cylinder cover and quick-release air filter, which together reduce service requirements and facilitate routine maintenance. Moreover, with a forged three-piece crankshaft and a durable magnesium crankcase providing valuable protection against knocks, scrapes and general wear and tear the 576XPG AT can happily withstand the rigours of even the toughest commercial cutting work.

    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.
