New generation, new thinking Husqvarna 400 series chainsaws get a face life.

The popular Husqvarna 400 series chainsaw range has been given a new lease on life,
with new advanced features that users will really appreciate.

Already built with classic Husqvarna features, the evolution of the 400 series chainsaw range
introduces new features including slimmer design, improved starting and easy refueling.

With a starter housing that is 50% slimmer than the previous design, these chainsaws are
exceptionally easy to handle and manoeuvre. The centre of gravity is close to the front handle,
ensuring optimum balance.

Easy starting is of the utmost importance and with this in mind Husqvarna has improved the
starting on the new generation chainsaws. The new slow pull design significantly reduces the
amount of effort required to start the chainsaws. Less than half the pulling speed is required,
thanks to the low RPM ignition which means the engine now gives a spark from 350rpm as
opposed to the previous rate of 750rpm.

Another simple improvement on these chainsaws is the new flip-up tank cap, which provides a
better grip, making it easier to loosen and tighten. The cap is threaded like a normal tank cap
and can also be retro fitted to older models. The fuel level window allows you to easily and
quickly determine your fuel usage.

In addition to these new features, the 400 series chainsaw range retains class leading Husqvarna
innovations; X-Torq® engine, Low Vib® anti-vibration system, Air Injection™ filtration system and tool-less chain tensioning, making this range evolutionary in the homeowner/landowner chainsaw market today.
