Oregon ST250-E6 Cordless Trimmer / Edger

  • Product Details

    For just about as long as anyone can remember, horticultural power tools have relied heavily upon the ability to extract the decomposed remains of prehistoric organisms from deep within the Earth. These fossils then require processing and refining to make them into a fuel, which when burnt can power a tool. But if this seems like a slightly convoluted process for the sake of tidying your lawn, then worry not; Oregon’s ST250 Cordless Electric Trimmer/Edger is here to make things a whole lot simpler.

    By eliminating the need to rely upon petrol equipment, the Oregon ST250 places itself at the forefront of a horticultural revolution. This is because it’s battery-powered and electric tools are cleaner, quieter, simpler to operate and cheaper to run than comparable petrol equipment. And with the power provided by Oregon’s B400E lithium-ion battery pack and an efficient electric motor, the ST250 is no slouch when it comes to cutting either.

    The motor delivers a no-load cutting speed of 7,000rpm, which when combined with the ST250’s tough .080″ Platinum Gatorline™ nylon cutting line is more than enough to deal with the vast majority of trimming and edging jobs. The Oregon ST250 also features an Oregon® Swift Load trimmer head with a semi-automatic feed system, making it reassuringly simple to advance or reload the cutting line when required.

    This user-friendliness is evident throughout the ST250’s design, ranging from the ergonomically designed handles and intuitive controls to the simple-yet-clever flip-down edging guide, which allows you to quickly switch between trimming and edging. Lightweight (only 4.3k with battery pack) and well-balanced for added manoeuvrability, Oregon’s ST250 also ensures that you can cut accurately, with variable throttle control included for added precision.

    The ST250 is also four times quieter than similar petrol machinery, which when combined with the lack of fumes makes it perfect for use in built-up areas. This superb cordless trimmer/edger from Oregon is therefore better for you, those around you and the environment. And with this package including both the B400E Battery Pack and C600 Battery Charger as standard, it won’t take long before you come to appreciate its many benefits.

    About Oregon
    You perhaps wouldn’t have thought that the timber beetle, a creature whose larva buries deep into wood while it develops, would be an obvious candidate for having inspired a revolution in chainsaw technology, but the world is a surprising place sometimes. The logger and inventor Joseph Burford Cox was almost certainly surprised when, after several months of searching for a way to improve the chains used on early petrol powered chainsaws, he had an epiphany in the shape of the jaws of a grub.

    The story goes that Joseph was chopping firewood one chilly autumn day in 1946 when he became distracted by the sight of a timber beetle larva, roughly the size of a man’s forefinger, easily chewing its way through the tough wood of a tree stump. It occurred to Joseph that the larva's alternating C-shaped jaws could be the solution for which he had been looking and set to work in the basement workshop of his home in Portland, Oregon, eventually emerging with a ground-breaking new saw chain. The basic design of Joseph Cox’s chain is still evident today in modern chipper type chains, which is impressive given that it was inspired by a creature often considered a pest.

    Joseph didn’t stop there though, and he and his wife, Alice, founded The Oregon Saw Chain Co. in 1947. Over the decades that followed The Oregon Saw Chain Co. grew, grew and grew some more, eventually morphing from a small operation run out of the Cox household basement into a massive multinational corporation, especially under the guidance of John Gray, who purchased the company from Cox in 1953. The Oregon Co. is also notable for its pioneering research into reducing the hazards of bar-nose kickback during the 1960s and ‘70s. The technology developed by Oregon helped to vastly improve chainsaw safety and Oregon engineers were heavily involved in the years of work that finally, in 1985, resulted in the kickback-performance requirements found in the voluntary chain saw safety standard known as ANSI B175.1.

    Today, the Oregon brand continues to be an industry leader in more than a hundred countries around the world. With over sixty years of experience in the business and a continuing dedication to safety, ease of use and innovation, the company is now well known across the globe for the reliability and quality of its products. As such, it’s fair to say that the Oregon Co. has come a long way since its beginning with a man out in the woods watching a bug chew wood.
