Husqvarna Extend Battery Range

Husqvarna Extend Battery Range: Husqvarna — one of the world’s leading producers of forest, park and garden products — extends its range of battery lawnmowers with the Husqvarna LC 353iVX, a new battery walk-behind designed for demanding domestic use in medium to larger lawns. The mower is equipped with Husqvarna Connect which offers Bluetooth connectivity to a smart phone, variable speed self-drive and 53cm composite cutting deck and dual battery slots. Powered by high efficiency brushless motors, the new lawnmower from Husqvarna is quiet and without direct emissions.

The demand for easy to use, quiet battery products with no direct emissions and low running costs is steadily rising and people are getting increasingly interested in neighbourhood friendly garden tools. Husqvarna LC 353iVX does not release any fumes and with a brushless electric motors it operates at around 83 dB, which is significantly lower than a petrol walk behind lawnmower with similar performance.

Thanks to its Bluetooth connectivity, Husqvarna LC 353iVX can be paired with Husqvarna Connect, allowing users to get information and tips on maintenance and troubleshooting as well as finding guides and manuals. Furthermore, with the mobile app, it is possible to see battery status, helping users plan their garden work more efficiently. The app also allows direct contact to a local Authorised Husqvarna dealer.

With a runtime of up to 70 minutes coupled with a lightweight 53cm composite cutting deck, Husqvarna LC 353iVX is designed for medium to larger sized domestic gardens. The product features variable speed digital drive allowing the ground speed of the machine to be adjusted to suit the walking speed of the user. For increased safety, Husqvarna LC 353iVX has a transport mode which stops the blade from turning and leaves the engine running, enabling off-turf traversing and convenient stop and go operation.

Automatic battery switch and energy saving mode

The new LC 353iVX from Husqvarna has dual battery slots with a feature that automatically switches battery if one of them is out of power, letting the user continue mowing without having to stop to switch batteries. Continuous drive with two batteries means longer runtime and more efficient mowing. The mower can be used with a single battery or a combination of the BLi integrated batteries, ideal for users that already own Husqvarna Battery series products.

The digital control panel on the new Husqvarna battery lawnmower gathers all user controls, gives an overview of the remaining runtime and lets the user choose between four speeds, depending on their needs. The savE™ mode on the Husqvarna lawnmower is designed to lower the RPM, while retaining torque to preserve battery life. By simply pushing the savE™ button on the keypad the energy saving mode is activated or de-activated.

Husqvarna uses a compatible battery system which means it’s possible to use the same batteries for all Husqvarna battery powered products of the same voltage, such as lawnmowers, chainsaws, trimmers or blowers.
