CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world's largest producer of outdoor power equipment, Husqvarna strives to offer new and improved ways to make the outdoors great – which means continually innovating and expanding its extensive product line, making life easier for do-it-yourself (DIY) consumers and commercial users alike.
This month, at Green Industry and Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO), Husqvarna will display numerous new and upgraded products – including a push-button ignition switch for riding mowers, new models in its All-Wheel Drive walk mower line, and an extensive range of new battery-powered products.
SmartSwitch by Husqvarna brings the convenience of one-touch starting, real-time feedback and "key-less" security to its line of riding mowers.
"In developing SmartSwitch, we really listened to our loyal customers, who were eager for intelligent feedback, easier starting procedures, and increased security from their Husqvarna riding mowers," said Sean Dwyer, Husqvarna. "It is truly a revolutionary advancement in riding mower technology and it sets the stage for the future."
SmartSwitch is a microprocessor enabled electronic interface designed for use with Husqvarna's exclusive Endurance Series engines featuring ReadyStart® automatic choke systems. The feature will be available on select RZ series Zero Turn Mowers and GT series garden tractors initially.
Key features include:
Products featuring Husqvarna SmartSwitch will be available in February 2014.
New All-Wheel Drive mower
Last fall, Husqvarna launched its All-Wheel Drive walk mower*, designed for uneven terrain and the toughest mowing conditions. This spring, Husqvarna is adding to that line with the launch of the HU675AWD model.
Powered by a 675 Kohler engine, the HU675AWD features the exclusive Husqvarna All-Wheel Drive System and high-traction wheels, with an aggressive tread pattern to provide traction and maneuverability. It also features a heavy-duty steel deck, a straight over mold bail system, a full autochoke and a mulch and bagging system.
For homeowners and commercial users seeking more environmentally-friendly outdoor power equipment, Husqvarna is adding to its line of battery-operated products. Each new product is equipped with a high-capacity Li-Ion 36 V battery that offers the performance of a gasoline powered engine with a cleaner and quieter experience; and also features SavE mode technology, which can be activated with the push of a button to lower output performance and increase battery life in less demanding situations (e.g., light grass trimming or small branch cutting).
Among the new products are:
These new battery-operated products are among Husqvarna's many product line offerings that provide new options to help complete projects more efficiently.
Husqvarna will display many of its latest products October 23 - 25 at GIE+EXPO, booth #9094, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. Visit www.gie-expo.com for details.
