What is the difference between grass trimmers and brushcutters?
A grass trimmer is a smaller, lighter machine, made for trimming the lawn where the mower is unable to reach. Brushcutters and forestry clearing saws are more powerful machines; they can clear high grass, heavy brushwood and small trees.
I want to trim the lawn and clear brush. Do I need two machines?
You can use the same machine for both jobs if you choose the right model. Many models come complete with trimmer head and grass blade. Combi-trimmers offer flexibility for changes between weed trimming, brush cutting and edging.
I live in a quiet residential area where noise can upset the neighbors. Do you have any quiet-running machines?
We have models specifically designed for residential use. The Husqvarna 122C is designed to operate at lower noise levels than other trimmers.

The fundamentals of operating techniques, safety and maintenance are found in the manual of your husqvarna product. There are also training courses available.

What type of fuel should I use in Husqvarna grass cutter?
Husqvarna grass cutters with 2-stroke engines should always be run on a mixture of gasoline and good-quality 2 stroke oil. If you use Husqvarna’s 2-stroke oil, which is optimized for Husqvarna’s engines, a 2% mixture is sufficient. Machines with 4-stroke engines must use straight gasoline. Ask your dealer for advice.
What types of cutting equipment are available?
Grass trimmers are used with a trimmer head with trimmer line. Brush Cutters can be equipped with either trimmer head, grass blade or saw blade depending on type of application.
