This 40V battery-powered rear-handle chainsaw is the world’s first rear-handle battery chainsaw with a clutch. The 542i XP® delivers added torque and power output equivalent to 40cc gas engines. Ideal for tree care professionals and arborist ground crews, this saw has an IPX4 rating for use in rain or shine. And proprietary active cooling technology delivers more consistent power and helps extend battery life. Combined with our X-PRECISION® guide bar and SP21G chain, this saw feels like gas, performs like gas, but has all the benefits of battery. XP G model comes equipped with heated handles.

A user’s chainsaw choice comes down to preference. But you don’t need to compromise on power and performance just because you’re using an electric saw. Husqvarna battery chainsaws are high in torque, allowing many models to perform as well as their gasoline equivalents.

Featuring long-lasting brushless motors, high chain speeds and comfortable ergonomics, our electric cordless chainsaws offer an outstanding alternative to traditional equipment.

For a tree care professional, one of the biggest advantages to using a Husqvarna battery chainsaw is how amazingly quiet they are. The reduced sound level allows you to work in noise-sensitive environments for longer periods of time without the extreme disruption caused by gasoline chainsaws. That’s why many pros consider their Husqvarna battery chainsaw to be their best tree trimmer for use in urban and suburban settings.

Husqvarna battery chainsaws offer quieter performance, fewer vibrations, zero fumes and push-button startups. Plus electric saws don’t require engine maintenance, saving you time and money. Many cite battery units as the best chainsaw for home use, while more pros than ever agree that commercial battery saws offers major benefits over gas models.

Husqvarna battery chainsaws are the future and the future is bright!

A Husqvarna battery chainsaw lets you work on any part of your property, free of cords or gas cans. Each cordless electric chainsaw is designed to empower you to get the job done right anytime, anywhere.
