Husqvarna 555RXT is a very powerful brushcutter developed for full time work in tough conditions.
The most powerful brushcutter produced by Husqvarna, the 555RXT is a superbly tough machine developed for use in the very toughest cutting conditions. This makes the 555RXT ideal for heavy duty landscape maintenance work in all commercial settings, whether you are trimming verges and undergrowth on farmland or clearing overgrown thistles, nettles and brambles from long neglected gardens. Of course, the 555RXT is equally effective if you simply want to achieve a neat finish when edging a domestic lawn, but it is in the very roughest cutting conditions that you will truly appreciate the outstanding performance of this hi-tech machine. It might even be worth climbing a mountain or two and trimming something while you’re up there just so you feel like you’re using the 555RXT to its full, rugged potential.
Key to the 555RXT’s undoubted excellence is its sheer power, supplied by a reassuringly clean running 53.5cc X-Torq® petrol engine delivering up to 2.8kW at 9000rpm. This power is channelled into the 555RXT’s cutting system, which features a high torque bevel gear positioned parallel to the ground to ensure optimal performance. The 555RXT is also impressively versatile, with both an efficient T45X trimmer head and a sturdy metal grass blade supplied as standard. The trimmer head excels when used for precision work in hard to reach areas, but with a handy ‘Tap & Go’ line advancement system to save you time and effort it is also effective when used for cutting larger areas of long grass. The metal grass blade, meanwhile, is tough enough to make light work of dense undergrowth and other vegetation too thick to cut quickly with the trimmer head. Cutting equipment is locked in placed with a magnetic pin system which has been designed to make switching between the trimmer and blade quick and easy, while the 555RXT can also be equipped with an optional saw blade (available separately) to further increase its breadth of utility.
For ease of use, meanwhile, the 555RXT’s engine is fitted with a fuel pump and a Smart Start® system, both of which help to ensure quick and easy starting. This is perfectly complemented by a convenient auto-return stop switch which automatically resets when you are done to help make sure starting is completely trouble-free, while innovative LowVib® technology reduces vibration levels for even more comfortable operation. The 555RXT also features ergonomically designed ‘cow horn’ handlebars which are offset to provide greater freedom of movement and an optimal working position, thus helping to further ensure your comfort and boosting overall productivity. Were this not enough, the 555RXT is also supplied with an adjustable Balance XT harness designed to distribute the brushcutter’s weight evenly and prevent strain over extended periods of use, so you can be confident of working comfortably and safely until the job at hand is done.
This combination of power, manoeuvrability and convenience makes Husqvarna’s 555RXT a professional quality brushcutter with which few other machines can compare, perfect for taking on all commercial grass cutting applications in even the toughest conditions. In fact, I suspect that the only place the 555RXT possibly wouldn’t perform to an absolutely outstanding level is on the moon, and as there is famously very little vegetation up there that really can’t be considered a drawback
