Looks unbelievable. I have the 535i or whatever it is husky battery saw and love it. It's not so good for bigger cuts, but the t540i looks like it handles it no problem. Trying to buy one presently. Not sure how long it will take my local dealer to get them. Can't wait to get my hands on one!
My Husky dealer said the new production saws will be in by end of the month.
T540i XP looks like it handles 8 to 12 inch cuts well, battery 200 Li X is part of what delivered that level of cutting power - previous batteries will function, BL150 (?) charger is supposed to charge 50% faster.
Yes, agreed about the trigger although the fact I don't have to pull it over to start it is enough for me!Welcome to TreeBuzz LCT. That is a great visual of how incredible the 540i is for fast for all of us to see. I am now looking forward to them putting the same tech into the power pole saw.
I used the T540i for pruning last week and made it to lunch with one battery. (Light on the cuts and used the battery pole saw a bunch too.)
I think it is the first trim saw I will grab from now on unless there is a reason not to, it's very pleasant to run.
Things a person could complain about: The ergonomics feel a little different on the handlebar, the grip safety in the pistol grip takes a different motion to engage than one would expect. Those just take a little getting used to.
Yes I also agree, it's great at bores although continually bore cutting - I don't know why you would - will drain the battery faster than standard cross cutting.I was putting that up for those that haven't had the pleasure of using one yet LCT.
Someone somewhere said it won't bore cut.......well.......my results were different than that. It bores better than any saw I've run bar none.
