WLC 2018 Starts August 2nd!
The 33rd World Logging Championships will begin in Lillehammer, Norway on August 2, with more than 100 loggers participating this year for the World Logging Championship title. New for this round of the WLC is a seperate women's class, in which one woman from each country can compete. Women still have the possibility to compete in the regular elite and junior class.
Husqvarna will once again be participating with our competitors using the 576 XP, 572 XP and 372 XP championship chainsaws to compete in their challenges!
As always, the WLC will be divided into different individual disciplines plus the exciting team relay race, which are inspired by the same procedures as the professionals exercise in their everyday work. These include tree felling, fitting another chain, bucking by combined cuts, precision bucking and limbing.
Join us for three days of competition to crown this year’s Logging Champions of the World.
Husqvarna will be providing updates straight from Lilleheammer, so be sure to ‘like’ our Facebook page

Husqvarna protective wear: Materials handpicked for protection and flexibility
At Husqvarna, we’ve worked hard to learn what defines comfort in professional forestry and logging, how it can be improved, and what type of comfort is needed in each part of your workday.
Husqvarna protective wear: Washing and repair guides
Clean and whole clothes are safe clothes. Your protective clothes are regularly exposed to sweat and oil — substances that may reach the protection layer and reduce its function.
Husqvarna protective wear: Find your size
Husqvarna protective clothes are available in many different sizes, to fit all types of loggers and challenges. We have created the size guide below to help you. Take a few moments to check your body measurements against the guide to find your right size.
