Husqvarna 542i XP® is the world’s first professional battery chainsaw with a clutch, which provide a unique feeling and outstanding capacity. This powerful 36V battery chainsaw is a highly efficient tool for urban tree care workers and arborist ground crews, who want the control and response of a petrol saw combined with all the benefits of cordless electric power. The high chain speed and efficient X-CUT™ chain deliver fast, precise cuts in each application.
The centrifugal clutch provides kick-start energy at the start of every cut, and helps keeping the chain from getting stuck in the wood.

Intuitive, accessible keypad
The accessible keypad helps you to stay in control; start and stop easily by pressing a button. A savE™-function allows for a choice between max runtime or max power. Charge status is always clearly visible when the battery is activated, the oil drop symbol lit up when chain oil is running low and there’s a reminder if the chain brake is in ’on’-position.

Interchangeable Battery System
Able to be used in all Husqvarna battery tools, our lithium-ion batteries are durable, easy to swap and recharge quickly
Power-Conserving savE™ Mode
SavE™ mode maximises the run time, reduces noise levels and preserves product battery life by lowering the rpm. Ideal for tasks that do not require full power. Just press the button to turn savE™ mode on and off.
Retained bar nuts
The retaining function prevents loosing the bar nuts.
This battery-powered Husqvarna machine fulfils the IPX4 classification for rain resistance. This makes it a long-lasting and reliable tool that can be used all year round in all weather conditions.
The product is automatically shut down after 3 minutes of being idle, which prolongs the life of the battery and also lower the risk for injuries when left unattended. With the chainbrake activated, the shutdown occurs after 30 minutes.
Flip-up tank cap
The flip-up tank cap is easy to open.
Efficient brushless motor
Our in-house developed, advanced brushless motor is 25 % more efficient than a standard brush motor. This means that the motor provides a high and consistent torque.
Inertia-Activated Chain Brake
In case of a kickback, the effective inertia-activated chain brake immediately stops the chain to reduce the likelihood of injury.
