Forest, landscaping, and outdoor power equipment products manufacturer Husqvarna is adding two battery-powered products to its handheld products—a trimmer/edger and a leaf blower.
Part of the company’s 200 Series of products, each product is battery powered so they free up landscape work from power cords and gas. “Husqvarna’s 200 Series is designed to energize users’ yard work as the battery solutions deliver the power to get the job done and feature some of the best-performing and lightest products in class,” the company says.
The 220iL battery trimmer/edger is designed with versatility and safety in mind. Featuring a dual-direction rotating head to control clippings and debris safely, the 220iL also is equipped with a push-button boost mode that delivers 20% more power to tackle the toughest conditions. Additionally, it weighs 10 pounds, features a flip-n-go trigger, edger grip assist, and precise balance making the 220iL easy to handle and maneuver during any project or outdoor task.
The 230iB leaf blower features a 650 CFM blower and offers a convenient scraper attachment on the end of the blowing tube to help with moving stubborn debris. Weighing just under 9 pounds, it also has a cruise control option that makes cleanup work more conducive and truly a breeze, the company says.
Both new products are ideal for all-around use and offer the convenience of instant startups and simple-to-use controls, along with ultra-quiet performance and reduced vibrations, the company says.
“Husqvarna is proud to offer these new products to our customers as it will truly be an upgraded experience with features not found on any other brand,” says Arnie Fie, Husqvarna’s North America product manager. “The 220iL and 230iB have been designed to deliver all the convenience of battery power to get any job done with minimal weight using intuitive and natural ergonomics making for an unparalleled ease to achieve perfect results in your yard.”
The company explains that the new tools are ideal for big or small projects and adds that the supplied lithium-ion battery and charger are compatible with all other Husqvarna battery powered systems. Husqvarna lithium-ion batteries offer long run times and most importantly speedy recharges. The 220iL has 30-minutes of continuous use runtime, while the 230iB provides 22-minutes of continuous use, the company says.
