Efco 8460 Professional Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    While the idea of a professional gardener may occasionally conjure up the image of a genial old man pottering around a luscious green garden, in reality landscaping work can also involve long days clearing dense scrubland in hot and dusty environments. When taking on such work, it is important not to underestimate the challenges involved. Part of the ‘Sharp-Pro’ range, Efco’s 8460 is a professional brushcutter designed for taking on any tough cutting work you might face, supplied with both a tough dual nylon line trimmer head and a hardened three-tooth brushcutter blade to ensure great results whatever the situation at hand.

    Driven by a powerful 45.7cc two-stroke petrol engine, the 8460 also features a handy choke lever and a primer bulb to guarantee quick and hassle-free starting. Moreover, to make sure that it can stand up to the rigours of professional use the engine is built with a durable steel crankshaft, a magnesium alloy engine case, and a professional quality air filter designed to ensure exceptional reliability even in dusty environments. For added convenience, the 8460 is also fitted with a special high-capacity 1.5 litre fuel tank designed to reduce service requirements and provide increased run time between fuel stops.

    As mentioned above, the 8460 is also supplied with both a high quality ‘Tap & Go’ trimmer head and a tempered steel brushcutter blade to provide outstanding grass cutting versatility. The trimmer head is light and manoeuvrable enough to handle precise trimming work with ease, but with the semi-automatic ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system allowing you to advance the cutting line by simply tapping the cutting head against the ground it is also efficient enough to cut larger patches of long grass with no trouble. The brushcutter blade, meanwhile, is hardened for excellent durability, making it perfect for even the toughest clearance work.

    Both cutting modes benefit from the added protection offered by a sturdy plastic blade guard, designed to deflect grass, stones, soil and other debris thrown up by the cutting gear. Perhaps the most important ergonomic feature of the 8460, however, is its intelligently designed dual-handlebar, which is positioned to offer an optimal working posture, complete freedom of movement and easy access to all controls. Between this and the professional quality harness also supplied as standard, you can therefore be assured of working confidently and comfortably until the job at hand is done.

    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.
