Husqvarna Madsaw dielectric gas-powered pole saw
By Anthony Capkun
March 13, 2021 – Husqvarna says its new 525DEPS Madsaw (“MAD” stands for “minimal approach distance”) is the first and only dielectric gas-powered pole saw tested to meet OSHA 1910.269 for electric power generation, and T&D.
The tool is insulated to prevent electrical conductivity and comes in two lengths (9 feet and 12.5 feet) to make it easier to access hard-to-reach areas. The Madsaw can be separated into pieces for easier storage.
Included with the saw is Husqvarna’s 525 powerhead: a 25cc 2-stroke engine with 1.34 hp and X-Torq. Meantime, the saw’s aluminum couples with shaft seals and sealed bearings make it suitable for all-weather use.
