As part of a large roll out of new products at GIE+EXPO, Husqvarna has added several things to its powerful roster of tree care saws and accessories, including the Husqvarna 565 70cc chainsaw, the new T525 top-handle saw and new arborist helmets and essentials.
The Husqvarna 565 is a powerful new saw in the 70cc class and part of Husqvarna’s new Endurance Collection. Designed and built in Sweden, it comes with a clutch cover that was designed to optimize rapid, safe saw chip ejection to prevent clogging, even when cutting long fiber wood. The efficient air injection system filters out 98% of incoming dust to deliver full working days with maintained performance and less wear on the engine.
Complementing Husqvarna’s strong and innovative 2019 forestry offerings, the company announced a new line of arborist helmets and arborist essentials, designed for the professional arborist looking for comfort, safety and style. The helmets come as Class C or Class E variations, depending on if the user is working near power lines, and three different visor versions: clear, mirror and smoke. Both helmets meet ANSI and CSA requirements, are ventilated and come with universal fit and depth adjustment settings as well as wheel ratchet adjustment along with a three-year warranty. Husqvarna Elevation—Class C arborist helmet and Husqvarna Spire—Class E arborist helmet will both be available for a low MSRP of $139.95. The new Arborist Essentials for 2019 include accessories for line setting, climbing, positioning and equipment transportation.
