Efco DR 51 VB6 Wheeled Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    The DR 51 VB6 is a semi-professional wheeled brushcutter perfect for use in larger areas of up to 5000m2, such as orchards and paddocks, assisting with the removal of thick and overgrown vegetation such as thistles, weeds and brambles. This highly robust brushcutter features an impressive cutting width of 51cm and is a great tool for tackling substantial areas of vegetation too dense for ordinary lawnmowers and handheld cutters, while simultaneously being pleasingly comfortable and straightforward to operate.

    As the DR 51 VB6 is self-propelled, it requires far less effort to use than comparable brushcutters which require you to push, and even the simple fact that it has wheels ensures that bigger clearance jobs are far easier to handle than using a handheld machine. A quiet-running and fuel-efficient 190cc Briggs & Stratton 825 OHV series engine, offering three forward speed settings from 2.5km/h to 4.5km/h, provides propulsion the variable-speed gearbox allowing you to choose the right ground speed for your application. Large-diameter rear wheels meanwhile, provide excellent traction and smooth movement, which is particularly important when working in wet conditions. Moreover, the smaller front wheel, made from tough metal for outstanding durability, helps ensure superb manoeuvrability even on rougher terrain.

    For added versatility, flexibility of cut is offered via a central height adjustment lever on the brushcutter’s handgrip, making it easy to adjust the cutting height without having to stop and fiddle with complicated controls. To ensure outstanding performance in a wide range of situations, the DR 51 VB6 features four different height settings between 55mm and 120mm, giving you the ability to tackle almost any clearance job quickly and efficiently.

    About Efco
    Giacomo Ferretti set the foundations of the Efco brand on the road to success back in 1978, spotting an opportunity to satisfy an Italian market beginning to demand high quality outdoor power tools. He responded by producing Efco lawnmowers, brush cutters, and chainsaws. Due to the high quality of the machinery made, the manufacturing of these products soon developed an enviable reputation amongst forestry and agricultural workers, users that demanded the best performance possible from their equipment. Sales of Efco lawnmowers began to soar during the intervening years and the Efco brand is now internationally recognised as a leader in the field of garden machinery manufacturing.

    They take their role very seriously though, and were the first company in this sector to achieve official certification in three crucial areas of business sustainability: the ISO 9001:2008 certification for quality in 1996, the SA 8000:2008 certificate for ethical processes of production in 2006 and the ISO 14001:2004, recognising Efco's efforts to reduce their impact on the environment with an ongoing commitment to become Carbon Neutral starting in 2010.
