Made for professional forestry and tree care work, the new Husqvarna X-TOUGH LIGHT bars offer a combination of lightweight, durability and cutting performance.

“We are very excited to finally announce our partnership with Sugihara. Their ability to produce the best chainsaw bars is well recognized in the industry. Our mission is to offer our customers the best cutting system possible, and these new bars are a vital part in that,” said Gent Simmons, Global Portfolio Director for Tree Professional at Husqvarna.

Husqvarna X-TOUGH LIGHT benefits from a solid, lightweight body with hard resin inserts that reduce weight, making it is easy to manoeuvre.

These features, along with the rail hardness of the new bars, gives longer maintenance intervals. Also, the sprocket nose adds to the high performance of Husqvarna X-TOUGH LIGHT and the new premium design provides a nice distinct appearance.

“With these new lightweight bars our customers get another addition to the complete cutting system we offer with Husqvarna chainsaws, chains and bars. With Husqvarna X-TOUGH LIGHT bars, users benefit from a durable and low weight option, which improves manoeuvrability,” Mr Simmons said.

Husqvarna’s new 3/8” lightweight bars come in lengths up to 36” and are available starting July 2021. The bars fit Husqvarna chainsaws from 60cc and up with a large bar mount.
