Husqvarna’s roots reach far into the past, back to the year 1689. The brand, named by its home town in Sweden, has produced number of innovative products throughout their history. Yet, since the production of their first lawn mower in 1918, Husqvarna transformed into a global super power of the outdoor power tools market. While many of Husqvarna’s subsidiaries nowadays still expand into various endeavors, such as electro bikes, or demolition robots, the main branch has limited itself to what it’s best at — Gasoline-powered outdoor power tools.
Husqvarna is a traditional brand, building on their history of high quality and reliability. These values are reflected in both their product line and approach to the customers. Husqvarna is known both for their long warranties and reliable customer service. The company even boasts that it sits on a stock of over 1.7 million parts that are ready to replace any malfunctions if necessary. These signs indicate that the 325-year-old company is not going anywhere soon.
Pricewise, Husqvarna’s leaf blowers fall into the middle to high tier. Their portfolio is void of any cheap devices, since the company accents quality overall. Husqvarna’s orange glazed products are characteristically sturdy and powerful, yet elegant and easy to use. Even though they are outright noisy, they are unmatched in raw power. This makes them ideal for large scale and professional use. However, even more casual users are ought to find the right device for them amongst their wide range of products. Their portfolio features a variety of handheld and backpack leaf blowers, which are almost exclusively powered by gasoline. In addition, Husqvarna has recently expanded their selection by several battery-operated handheld devices.
All Husqvarna products are the result of extensive industrial research. While they certainly are one of the most conservative brands in terms of product design, they have kept up with the times and improved their lineup to reflect current regulatory needs. One of Husqvarna’s characteristics is their XTorq® 2-stroke engine technology, which is in the core of the entirety of their product selection. Even though they do require a mixture of oil and gas, the manufacturer claims that this technology saves 20% of the fuel and reduces emissions by up to 60%. This ensures a more comfortable experience for both the user and his neighborhood.
As mentioned, Husqvarna is a major manufacturer of other power tools as well, most notably lawn mowers, trimmers and chainsaws. Their products are commonly featured in all hardware stores across the world. Thus, the Scandinavian company remains one of the most popular outdoor power tool manufacturers to this day.
