Utilising a new gearbox design, it delivers up to 50 per cent more torque at the cutting head than previous models, giving the same cutting performance as larger machines but with a smaller, lightweight engine. The 25.4cc two-stroke engine provides greater power with improved acceleration. A gear reduction ratio of 2.07 delivers outstanding levels of torque. Both Uand loop-handle versions are available.
The lightweight design features low vibration levels, reducing operator fatigue without compromising on cutting performance. A new fan cover design means less chance of cables snagging on branches. The combination pleated main filter and foam pre-filter has a tool-less cover.
