Husqvarna 325RJx

Husqvarna claims this model combines the manoeuvrability of a trimmer with the efficiency of a brushcutter. And the 325RJx does. It has a straight shaft, bevel gears and a J-handle so it can be used with a blade. It’s also lightweight but can tackle heavy vegetation. It makes work easy.
We have no trouble starting the 325RJx; it’s equipped with air purge. It’s also stable for fuelling up. The transparent fuel tank means you can keep an eye on the level.
Husqvarna clearly understands life in the commercial world. The wearplate under the engine and the reinforced spark-plug guard are designed to protect the engine against impact and shocks. And this engine is one of Husqvarna’s E-Tech units. It’s two-stroke, but emissions are remarkably low — seemingly without any trade-off in power.
“This may be a lightweight trimmer but there’s plenty of power for thick grass,” says one tester. The hard chromium-plated cylinder bore should provide increased durability and extend the product life.
The 325RJx has a combi-guard and comes as standard with both a grass blade and a trimmer head.
