Husqvarna Functional Forest Chainsaw Jacket

  • Product Details

    Many things are much more fun and/or practical while topless. Activities when topless-ness is recommended include sunbathing, swimming, sumo wrestling and, judging by the television coverage on Match of the Day, attending Newcastle United’s home matches. Using a chainsaw without a top on, however, is dangerous, irresponsible and unprofessional, so if you are planning on any heavy duty forestry or cutting work in the near future you would be well advised to invest in Husqvarna’s superb Functional Forest Jacket.

    Part of Husqvarna’s oddly yet aptly named ‘Functional’ range, this hardwearing jacket is suitable for professional foresters, tree surgeons and arborists who require attire capable of withstanding the rigours of heavy duty cutting work in hostile environments. It is also far more than just ‘functional’, offering the wearer comfort and convenience in addition to superb year-round, all-weather protection. The bright orange design and reflective ‘Husqvarna’ logo and arm bands, for example, ensure excellent visibility when light is poor or when other conditions mean your visual range is restricted. Also featuring two easily accessible pockets for superb convenience, as well as ventilation zippers under the arms for extra comfort when the weather is warm, the Functional Forest Jacket therefore makes prolonged periods of tough cutting work significantly less stressful. Made from durable material with reinforcement on the elbows, along with elastic wrist bands and an adjustable waist band for even greater comfort and convenience, Husqvarna’s Functional Forest Jacket is available in five sizes (ranging from 36”-54”) to help ensure a perfect fit.

    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.
