Husqvarna launches 525i Battery Series, new 40-C80 Charging Rail


Husqvarna has launched its 525i Battery Series product line, featuring a powerful new string trimmer and two dedicated edgers, as well as a new overnight charging rail enabling users to charge up to eight batteries, in parallel on a single plug.

The new 525i Battery Series products are equipped with a Husqvarna E-Torq motor, which supplies the power needed to meet the performance of 25cc gas equivalents while exceeding them in torque, reports Husqvarna. A metal skid-plate over the gearbox protects the machine from daily wear and tear and accidental drops. Each tool also includes ergonomically placed rubber grips for comfort. Additionally, the series is IPX4 certified for weather resistance, so users can operate the equipment rain or shine.

The Husqvarna 525i Battery Series product line includes:

  • 525iLST String Trimmer: The 525iLST String Trimmer is a robust, high-performance professional battery grass trimmer that’s lightweight, well-balanced and achieves a clean and precise cut. Designed for full-time use and complete with an 18.1-inch cutting diameter, this trimmer is also equipped with a metal skid plate to protect the motor from daily wear and tear.
  • 525iES Straight-shaft Edger: The 525iES Straight-shaft Edger can power through harder dirt (with high clay content) and grass on a daily basis without getting bogged down, notes the company. The 525iES has an 8-inch standard steel blade, giving landscapers the ability to cut clean, crisp lines in the grass and dirt against solid perimeters. The 525iES features a comfortable loop handle and intuitive keypad with a 3-speed mode and battery status indicator.
  • 525iECS Curved-shaft Edger: The 525iECS Curved-shaft Edger features a faster blade speed that’s nearly double the speed of a straight edger, making it an ideal tool for lighter-duty edging. The offset design also gives the operator a better view of the blade and while deflecting debris.

“With noise and emission regulations rapidly changing in North America, we are delivering a portfolio of battery-powered handheld tools that not only meet these new requirements, but also meet the performance of petrol products landscapers depend on,” says Carlos Haddad, vice president of North America, professional products at Husqvarna Group. “Husqvarna is ushering in the future of professional outdoor maintenance equipment with battery equipment and a suite of solutions to charge, store and transport the batteries needed to power a landscaper’s fleet of tools.”

To complement the 525i Series line of tools, the company is also introducing the Husqvarna 40-C80 Charging Rail – an overnight charging rail to help landscape and greenspace professionals charge up to eight batteries, in parallel on one plug. The 40-C80 Charging Rail charges batteries slowly overnight, helping to support a longer lifetime for the batteries. The charging rail can also be mounted on a workshop or trailer wall to keep workspaces clear and organized.

The new Husqvarna 525i Battery Series is now available at local dealers and online. Husqvarna has established a dedicated web page for the 525i Battery Series.
