The ideal brushcutter for dealing with tough terrain and heavy duty brush-clearing.

As a backpack machine, Husqvarna's 553RBX is perfect for use over tricky ground, while minimising strain and fatigue.

Excellent performance ideal for the toughest grass and brush-clearing

Powered by a 50.6 cc X-Torq Husqvarna engine, the 553RBX is able to boast high torque with excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions. You have the choice of two cutting attachments. First, a Tap 'n' Go trimmer head allows you to work on large areas of light grass quickly, and you are able to quickly feed more line simply by tapping it on the ground. The other attachment is a four tooth metal grass knife, perfect for tougher tasks and thicker areas of grass. 

Easy operation for stress-free trimming

The provided Combi-guard means the machine can be used with both a grass blade and trimmer head, ensuring simple switching between the two. The fuel pump has been designed for easier starting, while the starter itself is a standalone piece of equipment, making the starter cord simple to replace if required. The bevel gear designed with high torque and to keep the cutting equipment parallel to the ground results in the best possible cutting performance

Comfortable operation perfect for full-time use

The inclusion of the J-handle with his machine allows it to be used with both the trimmer head and grass knife, giving excellent versatility combined with safe, comfortable operation. In addition, the harness included with this machine helps spread the machine's weight, while additional padding ensures you can work for longer without strain.

Comes with a 2 year conditional warranty.
