Husqvarna has added the 220iL battery trimmer/edger and 230iB battery leaf blower to its Battery Handheld 200 Series. The new tools are ideal for all-around use by homeowners and offer the convenience of instant startups and simple-to-use controls, along with ultra-quiet performance and reduced vibrations, the company reports.
The 220iL battery trimmer/edger is designed with versatility and safety in mind – it features a Husqvarna exclusive dual-direction rotating head to control clippings and debris safely. It’s also equipped with a push-button boost mode that delivers 20% more power to tackle the toughest conditions. Additionally, it’s easy to handle and maneuver due to its light weight (just 10 pounds), flip-n-go trigger, edger grip assist and precise balance.
The 230iB battery leaf blower provides homeowners with both power and convenience. It features a 650 CFM to deliver best-in-class blowing power as well as a convenient scraper attachment on the end of the blowing tube to help with moving stubborn debris. Weighing in at less than 9 pounds, the 230iB also offers a cruise control option to make cleanup work more conducive.
The 220iL, 230iB and the supplied lithium-ion battery and charger are compatible with all other Husqvarna battery powered systems. The 220iL has 30-minutes of continuous use runtime, while the 230iB provides 22-minutes of continuous use.
“Husqvarna is proud to offer these new products to our customers, as it will truly be an upgraded experience with features not found on any other brand,” says Husqvarna North American product manager Arnie Fie. “The 220iL and 230iB have been designed to deliver all the convenience of battery power to get any job done with minimal weight using intuitive and natural ergonomics making for an unparalleled ease to achieve perfect results in your yard.”
