If you’re a hardworking amateur gardener looking for a powerful but lightweight and easy handling petrol brushcutter capable of handling tougher jobs and heavier loads, this high-performance machine from top Italian brand Oleo-Mac ticks all your boxes!
Providing that power – a substantial 1.5hp – is a medium-large displacement 30cc Emak two-stroke engine, which, thanks to Emak’s EasyOn technology, will prove quick and easy to fire-up.
Desirable engine-features include an automotive-type pleated-paper air-filter for superior protection against damaging, performance-limiting debris ingress; a see-through fuel-tank for instant checking of the fill-level; and a semi-pro-grade transmission designed to handle extended periods of high-rev use over time.
Not just a strimmer for putting the after-mowing final-touches, the Oleo-Mac BC-300T Petrol Brushcutter can, by swapping the line-head for the included three-tooth metal blade, be turned into a more aggressive machine that will tear through the sort of out-of-control vegetation you might find around the outlying, less well-maintained areas of your property.
Despite its sizeable engine and solid feel, the Oleo-Mac BC-300T Petrol Brushcutter weighs-in at a mere 6.3kg, with that weight being comfortably distributed across the user’s body by an ergonomic padded shoulder harness.
The bump-feed line-head on this model benefits from Oleo-Mac’s Load&Go technology – you’ll be able to reload the spool with new cord quickly and with zero hassle.
This is a ‘cowhorn’-handled machine, so it will remain easy to control and manoeuvre for as long as it takes to complete lengthy strimming and brushcutting sessions.
