When technologically caring for green spaces in urban areas, professionals increasingly prefer gasoline hedge trimmers (they are also called bush scissors, or garden shears, or brush cutters).
Husqvarna, one of the leaders in park and garden equipment, offers a wide range of such tools, allowing each professional to choose the most suitable model and get the most out of their tasks.
Husqvarna bush trimmer 122HD60
If you need a budget-level tool, but with structural elements like professional models, take a look at the Husqvarna 122HD60. This is a hedge trimmer with a modern engine (21.7 cm³ / 0.6 kW) that generates a high torque (0.8 N * m), equipped with an easy start function, has an advanced silencer (sound pressure to the operator’s ear 94 dB (A)).
The pivoting design of the rear handle and an effective anti-vibration system allow you to work for a long time without fatigue. Incidentally, this hedgecutter has the lowest vibration level in its class: 4.1 m / s² at the front handle and 3.6 m / s² at the rear.
A gearbox with a gear ratio of 4.44 develops a high speed of movement of the knives (4050 cuts / min). At the same time, the knives are double-sided, 59 cm long, have a three-sided laser sharpening and a distance between segments of 28 mm, which ensures high productivity and clean cut of leaves, shoots and young branches.
Husqvarna bush trimmer 522HD60S and 522HDR75S
In terms of the main engine characteristics (21.7 cm³ / 0.6 kW) the 522HD60S and 522HDR75S are similar to the 122HD60. But that’s where the similarities end.
The 522HD60S and 522HDR75S are professional grade tools. The engine was developed at the Husqvarna plant in Japan using innovative technologies. It is equipped with an easy start, creates a high torque (0.9 N * m) and is specially made “low speed”. In combination with a two-stage air purification system and the material of the housing parts of the crankcase and the gearbox (here “magnesium”, an alloy of magnesium and aluminum, like in professional chainsaws, is used), this provides a long service life during operation for a full working day.
The models have a different design of the gearbox, which determines the specifics of their application. The 522HD60S has a gear ratio of 4.09, which guarantees a high speed of movement of the knives (4400 cuts / min.) And the highest productivity when cutting leaves, shoots and young branches. Double-sided knives 60 cm long have a laser three-sided sharpening and a distance between segments of 30 mm. The vibration level on the front / rear handles does not exceed 3.1 / 2.8 m / s².
But if the task is to process overgrown hedges or their reconstruction, where the diameter of the branches is large, and some of them are dry, which requires a lot of effort and torque from the tool, then the 522HDR75S model is preferable here. Its gearbox is designed for “power” cutting: the gear ratio reaches 5.7, and the speed of movement of the knives is 3200 cut / min. At the same time, the length of double-sided knives with laser three-sided sharpening is 75 cm, the distance between the segments is 30.5 mm.
The silencers of both models are even more efficient: the sound pressure at the operator’s ear does not exceed 93 dB (A). The pivoting design of the rear handle and an effective anti-vibration system reduce vibration on the handles even more: the level on the front / rear handles is 2.5 / 2.2 m / s², which allows long-term work without fatigue.
Pole-type bush hedge trimmer Husqvarna 525HE3
There are situations where either very low hedges or extremely high hedges have to be processed, where the standard design shears are not very effective and the operator is more comfortable working with the bar-type structure. There is such a model in the Husqvarna range and is called the 525HE3.
The rod arrangement allows the tool to be held closer to the spine, which significantly reduces the stress on the operator’s muscles and ensures high productivity during the work all day long.
525HE3 is the most powerful unit. The engine (25.4 cm³ / 1 kW, 1.2 N * m) with the innovative X-Torq technology allows to reduce the exhaust level by up to 70% and the consumption of the fuel mixture by up to 20%.
Double-sided knives 60 cm long have a laser three-sided sharpening and a distance between segments of 37 mm and develop a speed of 4400 cuts / min. The operator has the ability to adjust the optimal angle of inclination of the cutting system in the range of up to 135 °. A rear handle, mounted under the engine, protects the structure from impact and damage, and also increases the reach and working area of the tool.
When choosing a tool, you should consider every characteristic that the user needs.
Before buying, it is recommended to hold the model in your hands in the store in order to feel its weight and balance. This will help you understand which model is the most convenient for you to handle.
The right scissors will be an indispensable tool and valuable purchase that will last for years.
