Efco DS 2700 S Petrol Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    One important factor which some forget when choosing a grass trimmer or brushcutter is to pick a machine tailored to the size of your garden. Efco’s extensive ‘Home-Plus’ range includes a wide variety of machines, each adapted to meet the specific challenges involved in different horticultural settings. Efco’s DS 2800 S, for example, is designed and built for intensive grass clearance work in larger gardens, but with a range of ergonomic features to ensure ease of operation even for less experienced users, combining performance and convenience in a machine ideal for tackling everything from precision trimming work to tougher clearance jobs.

    Driven by a powerful 27cc two-stroke petrol engine, the DS 2800 S also incorporates Efco’s excellent ‘Burn Right’ technology for greater fuel efficiency and eco-friendly performance. This reduces harmful emissions by 75%, helping to protect both you and Old Mother Nature in the process, but also improves fuel economy by up to 40% for reduced running costs and fewer fuel stops while working. For even greater convenience, the DS 2800 S also features digital coil ignition and an ‘Easy On’ system, both of which help to guarantee quick and hassle-free starting time after time.

    Supplied as standard with both a sturdy dual nylon line trimmer head and a tough three-tooth grass blade, the DS 2800 S is also magnificently versatile. The trimmer head, for example, excels when it comes to tidying and edging lawns, but can also be used for cutting longer grass in areas inaccessible to a conventional lawnmower. The metal grass blade, meanwhile, enables quick and efficient clearance of denser patches of thick undergrowth, weeds and rough grass. Both cutting modes also benefit from the inclusion of a protective blade guard, which deflects clippings, stones and other debris thrown up during operation for added comfort and safety.

    Moreover, the trimmer head also stands out for featuring a couple of cleverly designed features which improve efficiency and ease of use; a ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system and innovative ‘Load & Go’ technology. The first of these is a handy semi-automatic feed system which allows you to advance the cutting line by simply tapping the trimmer head on the ground. The ‘Load & Go’ functionality, on the other hand, saves time and effort by allowing you to reload the cutting line in a matter of seconds without having to dismantle the trimmer head.

    For even greater convenience, the ergonomic design of the DS 2800 S means that it is always easy and comfortable to operate. A lightweight and compact bevel gear drive, for example, reduces weight at the head in order to improve handling and manoeuvrability, while a comfortable rubber coated loop handle further increases control. Moreover, with the tough aluminium engine housing to absorb knocks and bumps during operation and a high performance air filter to protect the engine against unnecessary wear and tear, the DS 2800 S is also reassuringly reliable, making it ideal for even the most dedicated home gardeners.

    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.
