Hints & Tips
Brushcutters are an excellent way of keeping lawn edges in order and but are not the lightest of machines to use for long periods.
So here are two from a leading manufacturer designed to be light and easy to use with fewer vibrations.
The Oleo-Mac BC22S Ultra Lightweight Petrol Brushcutter weighs only 4.2 kg and with a 21.7 cc engine has been made to deliver high torque even at low revs.
The engine is also remarkably easy to start with only the lightest pull on the starter chord and will run for 50 minutes on a tank of fuel.
Another great point on this machine is the unique way of re-loading strimming line fed out via a tap & go system – just tap the head on the ground and the line is automatically fed out.
It also comes with a harness to make using it less tiring.
It costs £199, £80 less than the maker’s recommended retail price and has a three year warranty. We deliver it free the next working day.
The Oleo-Mac BC24T Ultra Lightweight Petrol Brushcutter is a similar machine made with the professional gardener and amateur with a range of tasks in mind.
This brush cutter is equipped with a similar engine and is very light in weight, an important point when it comes to using it for a longer period.
This has a 25.5 cm three–toothed metal blade to give it the power to cut through rougher weeds like nettles and dock and can also deal with thicker brambles as well.
And it is very simple to switch from brushcutting to strimming and it is designed with aluminium components to keep the weight down – it weighs 4.8kg.
It has a similar system to allow for very easy starting and to re-load the strimming head.
It costs £229, £120 less than the maker’s recommended retail price and has a three year warranty. We deliver it free the next working day.
