The Husqvarna T540 XP® is designed for the high-end top handle saw market, targeting professional customers like full professional arborists and landscapers, garden contractors and utility services and other qualified users who need excellent performance and reliability in combination with the best ergonomics. The 37.7cc engine features AutoTune that automatically controls the flow of fuel to the engine to optimise performance in all situations. 

The Husqvarna T540 XP® boasts reduced fuel consumption and emissions thanks to the unique X-Torq engine technology. Air injection removes larger dust and debris particles before reaching the air filter to improve engine life. A magnesium crankcase helps keep the weight of this saw down to an incredible 3.6kg which makes it one of the lightest arborist saws available. The T540 XP® also features snap fit quick release covers, horizontal rope eye let and a full inertia safety chain brake system.

Details of the kits available with this machine are at the bottom of the page. Extra savings available on some kits when bought with a machine.



AutoTune gives optimal engine performance throughout automatic engine setting. No time spent on carburettor adjustments. It compensates for different fuels, altitude, humidity, temperature and clogged air filter.


Deliver lower fuel consumption and reduced exhaust emission levels in accordance with the world´s most stringent environmental regulations.
