Efco 8535 ERGO Professional Backpack Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    Despite the compact design of Efco’s many and various brushcutters, there are some situations in which a little extra support is very much welcome. This is especially true when clearing rough scrubland, cutting tough grass on steep or uneven ground, or roving post-apocalyptic landscapes fighting off radioactive mutants. Sadly even the 8535 ERGO is of limited use when faced with radioactive mutants, but thanks to an ergonomically designed backpack harness it does excel when taking on heavy duty landscaping work in unforgiving environments, providing the power and reliability you would expect from a machine in Efco’s ‘Sharp-Pro’ range along with the added convenience of complete freedom of movement.

    Made from cushioned, breathable material to ensure operator comfort, the harness is designed to allow the user to negotiate rough ground and work in complicated areas freely. The extra mobility this provides helps you get work done quicker and to a better standard than would be possible with a conventional brushcutter, as the additional support makes it much easier to find an optimal cutting angle on slopes and rough ground. Moreover, the harness also helps protect your shoulders and lower back by distributing the weight of the engine evenly, thus preventing strain over extended periods of use, while a quick-release system provides added safety in hazardous situations.

    The engine itself, a hardworking 52.5cc two-stroke petrol model, provides reliable and smooth running power, with a high capacity 1.5 litre fuel tank helping to extend run time between service stops. Built with only the highest quality components, including a tough steel drive shaft, a professional grade two-ringed piston and a highly effective air filter, the 8535 ERGO is also brilliantly dependable and able to withstand the rigours of sustained professional use. Moreover, with a spring-assisted ‘Easy On’ system to reduce starter cord resistance and a digital coil and primer included to make starting reassuringly hassle-free, the 8535 ERGO is pleasingly easy to operate from the moment you begin working.

    Supplied with both a tough dual nylon line trimmer head and a tempered steel grass blade, the 8535 ERGO is magnificently effective in a wide range of situations. The trimmer head, for example, can be used for everything from tidying lawn borders to mowing overgrown verges, with the inclusion of an efficient ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system meaning that you can effortlessly advance the cutting line by simply tapping the cutting head against the ground. The brushcutter blade, meanwhile, will make short work of even dense scrub and undergrowth, providing a little extra bite when you most need it.

    For even greater convenience the trimmer head also features Efco’s ‘Load & Go’ technology, enabling the cutting line to be reloaded in less than twenty seconds without any need for additional tools. As with everything else about the 8535 ERGO, this is designed to save valuable time and energy and make your work easier, making this impressive machine ideal for the busy professional taking on tough landscaping work.

    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.
