Brushcutter 129R features a powerful 27cc engine and professional quality.
Anyone who takes pride in a tidy lawn will need a grass trimmer to neaten borders and trim patches of long grass, but not every grass trimmer is quite as effective as Husqvarna’s superb 129R. This is because the engineers at Husqvarna have drawn upon their extensive experience in the professional horticultural equipment market to inform the design and engineering of this powerful yet user-friendly grass trimmer, so now enthusiastic amateur gardeners can achieve a professional quality finish in domestic gardens with pleasingly little fuss.
This is in part because Husqvarna’s 129R is supplied as standard with both a nylon line ‘Tap & Go’ trimmer head and a tough metal brushcutter blade. As such it is equally effective whether you are simply trimming lawn borders or clearing dense patches of thick weeds. In the former case it is the dual nylon line trimmer head which will serve you best, providing a quick and effective method of conducting precision maintenance in tricky areas. This is made easier still by the ‘Tap & Go’ line advancement system, which allows you to advance to cutting line to an optimal working length by simply tapping the trimmer head against the ground. The brushcutter blade, meanwhile, will make short work of nettles, thick grass and other tough scrub.
Both cutting modes benefit from the 129R’s high-torque bevel gear, which is designed to keep the cutting gear parallel to the ground for optimal results. The extra reach offered by the 129R’s straight shaft, moreover, means that no corner of your garden will be beyond your attentions, while the inclusion of a protective combi-guard allows you to work safely and effectively at all times. Husqvarna’s 129R is therefore capable of delivering great results in any garden, regardless of size or complexity.
Power to the cutting gear comes from a hardworking 27.5cc two-stroke petrol engine, which is capable of providing up to 0.8kW of cutting power at 8,000RPM. With this impressive clout you can probably see why the 129R is as effective as it is, but thanks to an auto-return stop switch, an easy-access primer bulb and a user-friendly Smart Start® system (all of which help to make starting dependably hassle-free) the 129R is also easy to operate even for inexperienced users. This ease of use is further enhanced by the 129R’s intuitive controls and lightweight design, with an overall weight of only 5.21kg without cutting equipment. Combined with the bike-style dual handlebar – which is great for getting a scything motion when clearing larger patches of longer grass – the 129R therefore allows you to work in comfort for longer without any risk of muscle strain.
Supplied as standard with a supportive double harness to help ensure freedom of movement, Husqvarna’s translation of their commercial-grade grass trimmer technology into the 129R means that this machine offers something that most domestic grass trimmers don’t; versatile, user-friendly performance with enough bite to ensure that tough jobs don’t become taxing.
