Husqvarna LC 551iV Lawnmower: A battery-powered lawnmower with high capacity cast aluminium cutting deck designed for full-time commercial use.
Based on the same platform as the petrol powered LC 551SP and VBP models, the Husqvarna LC 551iV offers the same performance levels with the added benefit of no direct emissions, much lower noise and vibration levels. All this is possible due to the high performance weatherproof, IPX4 rated battery power unit which replaces the traditional 4-stroke engine. The power unit provides the user with the option of both one or two integrated BLi batteries, or a BLi backpack battery with the adaptor accessory to power the mower.
The machine is self-propelled and features four speed options enabling operators to select the most suitable ground speed, the ergonomic mower handle is also height adjustable maximising operator comfort. High performance brushless blade and drive motors vastly reduce noise levels when compared to equivalent petrol machines. This allows use in noise sensitive areas and public spaces without disturbance, increasing productivity. The digital drive system also significantly reduces the vibration levels through the handle bar, and the machine has an ultra-low vibration level of 0.3m/s2.
The machine is Fleet ServicesTM capable allowing easy integration into the Husqvarna fleet management tool. Fleet ServicesTM allows fleet operators to track machine location, monitor machine use, service intervals and much more from a smart phone or desktop.
Assisting in a variety of working conditions, operators can choose between the machine’s normal or savE™ mode for optimum runtime based on the application. The machine features a PowerBoost mode where the lawnmower will automatically increase its blade speed when mowing in heavier conditions, which ensures extra power is guaranteed when needed. All this is controlled from the machine’s easy to operate intuitive keypad which also shows machine and battery status. To aid storage and transportation, the handlebar is fully folding.
The LC 551iV features a 65 litre canvas collector with dust blocker, the mower can also be used as rear eject and in mulch mode with the optional mulch kit accessory. The collector is easily lifted through the one piece handlebar allowing efficient removal and re-fitting. To improve durability the mower features cast aluminium deck with side protection bumpers to protect against bumps and scrapes as well as aluminium rims.
