Congratulations on your choice to buy a Husqvarna product! Husqvarna is based on a tradition
that dates back to 1689, when the Swedish King Charles XI ordered the construction of a factory
on the banks of the Husqvarna River, for production of muskets. The location was logical, since
waterpower was harnessed from the Husqvarna River to create the water-powered plant. During
the more than 300 years of being, the Husqvarna factory has produced a lot of different products,
from wood stoves to modern kitchen appliances, sewing machines, bicycles, motorcycles, etc. In
1956, the first motor driven lawn mowers appeared, followed by chain saws in 1959, and it is
within this area Husqvarna is working today.
Today, Husqvarna is one of the leading manufacturers in the world of forest and garden products,
with quality as our highest priority. The business concept is to develop, manufacture and market
motor driven products for forestry and gardening, as well as for the building and construction
industry. Husqvarna's aim is also to be in the front edge according to ergonomics, usability, security
and environmental protection. That is the reason why we have developed many different features
to provide our products within these areas.
We are convinced that you will appreciate, with great satisfaction, the quality and performance of
our product for a very long time to come. The purchase of one of our products gives you access to
professional help with repairs and service whenever this may be necessary. If the retailer who sells
your machine is not one of our authorized dealers, ask for the address of your nearest service
It is our wish that you will be satisfied with your product and that it will be your companion for a
long time. Think of this operator's manual as a valuable document. By following its' content (using,
service, maintenance, etc) the life span and the second-hand value of the machine can be
extended. If you will sell this machine, make sure that the buyer will get the operator's manual.
