Husqvarna has announced the launch of its 40cc T540 XPMark III professional chainsaw as well as a new line of arborist gear.
The new top-handle T540 XPMark III was redesigned following user feedback, reports Husqvarna, resulting in a lightweight, balanced and agile chainsaw for climbing and cutting. Featuring a high cutting capacity, the T540 XPMark III also boasts a lightweight ergonomic design that aids operator comfort and AutoTune 3.0 technology that enables simple start technology and ensures peak performance in tough environments.
“We listened to the feedback given by arborists and redesigned the T540 XPMark III specifically with their needs in mind,” says Carlos Haddad, vice president of North America, professional products at Husqvarna Group. “Our top handle 40cc chainsaw offers maximum performance and precision in a durable package to enable the arborist to get the job done efficiently and effectively.”
Other features of note for the T540 XPMark III:
- The chainsaw’s engine power is enhanced with Husqvarna’s SP21G X-CUT chain, maximizing precision and productivity.
- AutoTune 3.0 technology allows tree pros to use the same starting procedure on hot or cold starts, with no risk of flooding.
- Husqvarna’s X-Torq engine design delivers impressive power and LowVib technology reduces handle vibration.
- Added versatility comes from double eyelets that make it easy to attach and remove from the climbing harness, keeping it closer to the body while climbing.
Husqvarna also has introduced a new range of arborist climbing gear, designed in collaboration with industry leader Teufelberger, including a climbing harness, positioning lanyard, anti-shock chainsaw lanyard and mini-carabiners. Husqvarna also designed and created a new gear bag to keep gear organized.
“Tree care professionals require durability and smart design in the gear they use day in and day out, and we’ve worked to meet those needs and provide additional comfort to improve the quality of their working lives,” says Haddad. “We’re proud to partner with Teufelberger to create a complete ecosystem of high-quality products for our customers.”
The T540 XPMark III and arborist gear are now available at dealers and online. A new rear-handled 540 XPMark III chainsaw will be available this summer, the company reports.
