Husqvarna 525LST String Trimmer

HUSQVARNA 525LST String Trimmer

Move Up To The Husqvarna 525LST For More Torque And Cut Capacity

While battery-powered string trimmers are very clearly expanding across the country, many professional crews rely on the power and longevity of a gas engine. Designed for lawn maintenance professionals, the Husqvarna 525LST string trimmer aims to help you cut more in less time.


Husqvarna 525LST String Trimmer: The Big Deal

Compared to the entry of the 525 series, Husqvarna gives the 525LST string trimmer with some updates. For starters, the cutting width increases from 18.1 inches to 19.3 inches, giving you more than an extra inch of cut capacity than before.

There’s also more onboard fuel capacity, increasing from 17.25 fl oz to 21.98 fl oz (0.65L). A larger tank capacity leads to less downtime and fewer stops to refuel.

The trimmer does gain a little weight compared to others in the series, but it’s still under 11 pounds dry.

There’s not a ton of difference between the Husqvarna 525LST and the 525LS. If you’re considering the two, the LST has high torque gearing and that tends to be the preference among lawn maintenance crews.

On the environmental side, the X-Torq engine design reduces harmful emissions by up to 60% and increases fuel efficiency by up to 20%.


This is a connectivity-ready tool. If you take advantage of Husqvarna’s FleetServices or other digital services, the LST has everything you need to get started. There’s also an integrated service port, making troubleshooting with the Husqvarna Service Hub an easier task.

HUSQVARNA has been and will be big box store junk. If you want anything that will last more then a few years get Stihl.
