This year Husqvarna celebrates 50 years as a chainsaw manufacturer. As a result of all the demands that professional forestry workers have placed on us over the years, we now have one of the market’s strongest chainsaw ranges.

Here are a few highlights from the Husqvarna chainsaw history:

1959 - Husqvarna’s first chainsaw was launched in 1959 and it was black and orange. Husqvarna’s outdoor products have been orange ever since. The first model (Husqvarna 90) had 50% lower noise levels than other comparable products on the market when it was launched.

1960’s – Husqvarna 455 Rancher has been successful on the export market since the late 1960’s when the sales took of. Very important models during the 60´s were Husqvarna 65 and 180. Today, 95% of all our products are exported and the company is represented by some 18,000 dealers in almost 100 counties around the world.

1982 - The Husqvarna
Rancher® was launched 1982. This is a saw that was developed especially for farmers and occasional users. It became the first Husqvarna saw build for all-round use and was soon immensely popular, especially with farmers and forest owners in the United States. The saw is still in production, and after a numerous updates it’s now called the 55 Rancher. Husqvarna 55 Rancher.

1994 - Husqvarna 455 Rancher has a proud history when it comes to the World Logging Championships. Team Husqvarna has won the gold medal eight times since the first WLC in 1970. The contest is held every two years, attracting competitors from some 30 countries, who compete both individually and on national teams. Vasile Babata from Romania used a Husqvarna 262 XP® when he won the World Logging Championships in 1994.

2001 – In 2001 Husqvarna launched the first chainsaw model with the new TrioBrake™ function. TrioBrake means that the chain brake can also be activated with the right hand. This reduces the risk of injuries, but also promotes a more ergonomic working position. And just like the integrated vibration-damping system and the inertia-activated chain brake, TrioBrake has the potential to become a new industry standard from Husqvarna.

2004 - 575 XP® and 445 Rancher were the first models equipped with the X-Torq feature. X-Torq is an engine technology for Husqvarna chainsaws which results in more power across a wide range of rpms and lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.

To celebrate 50 years of Husqvarna chainsaws, a competition was launched last fall to locate the world’s oldest working Husqvarna 90 models, the first chainsaws manufactured by the company.

In the search for the oldest working Husqvarna chainsaw, hundreds of contributions were submitted to Husqvarna. The quest turned up no less than five models from Sweden, Russia, Germany, Denmark and Poland and the owners were awarded the Husqvarna 450e Jubilee Saw, equipped with a unique bar bearing the 50-year anniversary logo.

In Sweden, where the first Husqvarna went on sale in 1959, following a request from the owner of the Huskvarna saw mill, more than 50 chainsaw owners participated in the competition. The winner, Gunnar Löfkvist, 66, recalled buying his MS 90A, the first Husqvarna chainsaw model ever sold, when he was a 15-year-old apprentice logger in northern Sweden.
