Efco DR 65 HR 8.5 Flail Mower

  • Product Details

    The Efco DR 65 HR 8.5 is a highly robust flail mower designed for tackling the toughest areas of brush and thick vegetation, perfect for use by professional landscapers and contractors. Ruggedness is with a major feature of this impressive machine’s design, as it has been developed expressly for heavy-duty applications that other mowers and cutters simply cannot handle, such as overgrown verges, steep slopes and thick undergrowth. Featuring 38 y-shaped flail blades, and with a cutting rotor supported by reinforced bearings and seals for maximum durability, the DR 65 HR 8.5 offers an extraordinary 65cm width of cut to make cutting dense areas of scrub and brush a quick and simple matter.

    The self-propelled Efco DR 65 HR 8.5 features an industrious 270cc GX 270 Honda engine, providing reliable power to the four-speed drive system, which is controlled via a tough gearbox featuring oil-bath lubrication for enhanced performance. As well as three forward speed settings (1.2km/h-3.4km/h), the Efco DR 65 HR 8.5 also features a reverse gear to improve manoeuvrability when you are mowing in a tight spot and haven’t got room to turn. The two extra large rear wheels, meanwhile, feature deeply-grooved chevron tyres for maximum traction, which is particularly important in wet and muddy conditions. Moreover, the control this provides is further enhanced by the mower’s two pivoting front wheels, which can even be locked into place to ensure a straight line of cut.

    Comfort and precision are also very important aspects of Efco’s design philosophy. The DR 65 HR 8.5, for example, features four height settings and five different width positions for added comfort, all controlled via ergonomically designed levers mounted on the handlebars for ease of access. Centralised cutting height adjustment, meanwhile, is also controlled via a lever on the handlebar, offering a selection of cutting heights between 20mm and 80mm for increased versatility in a wide range of cutting conditions. Weight: 155kg

    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.
