Design award: reddot design award 2013

Husqvarna 550 XP Chainsaw

Garden power tools by Husqvarna AB

Working with a chainsaw requires concentration and experience. Since wood as a natural material differs in structure, the chainsaw user needs to be able to react quickly at times. Thus, under ideal circumstances, man and machine work together as a perfectly matched team for efficient and safe sawing in any work situation. The design of the Husqvarna 550XP redefines the principle of a chainsaw and, thus, optimises sawing in many respects. Sophisticated ergonomics allow for a convenient, easy operation, while the use of well thought-out dampening elements reduces vibration, sparing the user’s arms and hands. In addition, this chainsaw is very light and lies well-balanced in the hand. Its weight was reduced by a novel construction as well as the innovative use of exposing the magnesium crankcase. The way in which this innovation was integrated into the design of the Husqvarna 550XP is impressive: this chainsaw appeals as a well-proportioned tool, conveying the attributes of power and efficiency in a highly convincing manner. A design that focuses closely on work situations created a powerful tool with a new design language and a high performance. It eases demanding forest work considerably.
