Husqvarna’s first chainsaw,launched in 1959.
When this saw was being developed, one of the requirements for the product engineers was to reduce its noise level to half of what other contemporary saws produced. The production department thought the existing muffler
”seemed too complicated” so the product engineers went to Husqvarna’s frame workshop, where frames for the company’s motorcycles and mopeds were made.
Their skill in bending pipe made it possible to realize a new design for the mufflers, and in November 1959 the Husqvarna 90 was presented, Husqvarna’s first chainsaw with noise levels that were half of the competition’s.
