CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Oil and water don't mix, but
oil and limited consumer extended warranties do-- at Husqvarna.

Today, Husqvarna-- the world's largest producer of outdoor power products--
announced the launch of a limited extended consumer warranty program for its
2-stroke, gasoline-powered products purchased by consumers. The standard
two-year limited warranty can be extended to three or four years with the
purchase of specific amounts of Husqvarna brand 2-stroke oil or pre-mix fuel
when purchasing the 2-stroke, gasoline-powered products.

Eligible items include the following designated Husqvarna-branded handheld
products: chainsaws, blowers, hedge trimmers, pole pruners/saws and trimmers.
The program is only available for consumers who use the products for
non-income producing personal use or household purposes¹.

"By purchasing and using our 2-stroke oil or pre-mix fuel, consumers will have
the opportunity to extend the warranty of their Husqvarna 2-stroke,
gasoline-powered handheld products," said Jim Parello, Director of Marketing,
Husqvarna. "Equally important, their new Husqvarna product will benefit from
the use of our high-quality oil and fuel products, which will heighten the
performance and lifespan of their new handheld piece of equipment."

Consumers may extend the warranty by up to two additional years, as follows:

  oOne-year extension (three years total). Consumers must purchase at least
    six bottles of Husqvarna brand 2-stroke oil at the same time as the
    qualifying handheld product purchase, with both purchases on the original
    product receipt.
  oTwo-year extension (four years total). Consumers must purchase at least
    three bottles of the new 32oz. Husqvarna brand Pre-Mixed 2-stroke Fuel at
    the same time as the qualifying handheld product purchase, with both
    purchases on the original product receipt.

Consumers must also register their product online or directly at the retail
location where purchased in order to qualify for the extended warranty.

Husqvarna's new Pre-Mixed 2-Stroke Fuel is an ethanol-free, 95-octane fuel
mixed with Husqvarna's best synthetic blended oil. The fuel does not degrade
or oxidize like pump gas and stays fresh for years, which solve long-term
storage issues. Additionally, it provides easier, more dependable starts and
protects fuel systems and saves carburetors. There is no mixing required. To

Husqvarna Dealers nationwide, Lowe's and other supporting retailers. For a
