Efco DS 2400 T Petrol Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    There are all sorts of ‘premium’ products available to us these days; premium memberships to subscription film services, premium rate help lines for when your premium subscription film service doesn’t work properly, premium strength lager for when the premium phone line proves unhelpful… However, few, if any, of these are even half as practical or genuinely high quality as Efco’s Premium brushcutters. Built to professional standards, these impressive machines are nevertheless ergonomically designed for comfort and convenience, making them easy and intuitive to use even for less experienced users. The DS 2400 T, for example, is a straight-shaft brushcutter which offers a superb combination of power and manoeuvrability, making it ideal for either commercial users or dedicated home gardeners.

    With power supplied by an efficient 21.7cc two-stroke petrol engine featuring an electronically controlled digital coil and a rev limiter to improve combustion, the DS 2400 T offers an unbeatable power to weight ratio and much better fuel economy than many comparable machines. This is complemented by the inclusion of a spring-assisted ‘Easy On’ device which reduces starter cord resistance, with clear access to the choke lever and primer bulb further guaranteeing quick and hassle-free starting.

    Supplied as standard with both an effective dual nylon line trimmer head and a potent three-tooth brushcutter blade, the DS 2400 T is also exceptionally versatile. The trimmer head, for example, provides the precision required for cutting and tidying in hard to reach parts of the garden, such as along lawn borders or under bushes, while the sturdy brushcutter blade helps clear denser vegetation quickly and efficiently. Both cutting modes benefit significantly from the inclusion of a sturdy plastic blade guard, which improves safety by deflecting grass, stones, twigs and any other debris thrown up during use.

    The trimmer head is equally notable for featuring Efco’s ‘Tap & Go’ and ‘Load & Go’ technology, both of which offer extra convenience and hassle-free servicing. The semi-automatic ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system works by allowing you to advance the cutting line with a simple tap of the trimmer head against the ground, saving valuable time and effort. The ‘Load & Go’ setup, meanwhile, means that the trimmer head can be reloaded in less than twenty seconds without using tools or ending up with dirty hands, making it ideal for less experienced users.

    The remarkable power and performance of the DS 2400 T does not, however, come at the expense of comfort and reliability, with a range of features helping to make this splendid machine dependable and easy to use. Perhaps the most noteworthy of these is the DS 2400 T’s ergonomically designed dual-handlebar, designed to provide easy access to all controls and complete freedom of movement while you work. This, along with the DS 2400 T’s extended shaft and a comfortable cushioned harness, also helps to ensure good working posture at all times, thus preventing strain over extended periods of operation.

    Admirable durability, meanwhile, is also assured thanks to Efco’s high manufacturing standards, with a professional grade two-ring piston, a tough aluminium clutch cover, a die cast cylinder with nickel plating, and a forged connecting rod and crankshaft all helping to offer a longer service life and unwavering performance.

    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.
