It may offer the sort of superior power and handling that will be familiar to landscape-professionals, but this high-performance straight-shaft brushcutter from acclaimed Swedish brand Stiga is nevertheless priced at a point that makes it a justifiable buy for the keen amateur gardener.
Supplying a hefty 1.2hp is a 32.6cc Stiga two-stroke air-cooled motor with an effective muffler that makes for a much more pleasant working-environment; and a butterfly-valve for optimum regulation of both engine-speed and power-output.
A capacious 0.8-litre fuel-tank combines with the engine’s efficient design to lessen the frequency of time-consuming refuelling-stops; while Stiga’s Easy-Start technology means the lightest of pulls on the rope will spark things into life.
The Stiga SBC-232 Brushcutter has been equipped with an ergonomic and compact ‘loop’-type handle that not only confer excellent user-comfort, but also makes it easy to operate in areas where space is restricted.
It comes with a single shoulder harness that reduces fatigue by distributing some machine weight across the shoulder; and it features Stiga’s AVS shock-absorbing system that limits vibration transfer, in turn making the job much less tiring on the hands and arms.
Suitable for both brushcutting and strimming tasks, the Stiga SBC-232 comes as standard with a 25.5cm three-tooth metal and a 43cm twin-line cutter-head (line-advance is via a convenient bump-feed mechanism).
