Bertolinis 401 is a powerful two-wheeled tractor unit, supplied here with a 95cm cutter bar for effective mowing of long grass, brambles and other thick vegetation.
The best thing about Bertolini’s 401 is that it is essentially a two-wheeled tractor designed for home use, offering the same kind of versatility and power typical of professional machines in a reassuringly user-friendly package. This is because the 401 is compatible with an impressive range of compatible tools and attachments. This model, for example, is supplied with a powerful 95cm cutter bar for effective mowing of long grass, brambles and other thick vegetation, but thanks to a QuickFit coupling system you can quickly adapt the 401 for tilling, ploughing or whatever the task at hand, thus ensuring year-round practicality and brilliant performance throughout the garden and beyond.
The 95cm cutter bar supplied with this machine, for example, can be used to quickly cut grass in gardens (with the bar being wider than the wheel base to allow trimming around edges and borders inaccessible to conventional lawnmowers) but is also suitable for agricultural applications such as cutting hay or trimming longer grass along roadsides, as well as weeds on river and lake banks. This makes the 401 a great piece of equipment for smallholders and estate managers, but with other accessories including tiller attachments, a snow plough and a powered brush (available separately), homeowners, allotment holders and commercial users will also find plenty of ways to utilise of this powerful unit all year round.
Speaking of which, power is supplied via a hardworking 163cc Honda GX160 four-stroke petrol engine, featuring an overhead valve design which cools the engine for optimal performance and increased fuel efficiency. Made with a cast iron cylinder sleeve for proven reliability, the engine is just as dependable as the rest of the 401’s build, so you can rest assured of many years of dependable performance. This outstanding power is complemented by the inclusion of a two-speed gearbox (with oil-immersed gears) featuring forward and reverse modes. As well as increasing manoeuvrability in tight spaces, the extra control this offers allows you to work with magnificent precision for a pleasingly tidy finish.
The versatility of this machine is further underlined by the clever design of its handlebar, which can be reversed 180° depending on the currently attached accessory. The handlebar is also height-adjustable for added operator comfort, width-adjustable to help avoid treading on previously tilled ground and made with an effective anti-vibration system to ensure complete convenience during use. Unimpeded access to all controls (including the handlebar-mounted power take-off switch) further enhances ease of operation, so even less experienced users will find Bertolini’s 401 pleasingly straightforward to use. This powerful machine is therefore perfect for anyone looking for a versatile tool capable of performing a range of horticultural functions on larger plots of ground.
