Efco DS 2700 T Petrol Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    For many domestic gardeners, especially those with larger, more demanding gardens, it is often difficult to find a brushcutter capable of delivering the power they need without having to either compromise on quality of finish or resort to a more expensive commercial machine. Efco’s DS 2800 T, however, belongs to a range of brushcutters designed specifically for demanding home users, offering the best possible combination of performance and ease of operation to make even tough gardening tasks much easier to handle.

    To help ensure that it is environmentally friendly, the DS 2800 T’s powerful 27cc two-stroke petrol engine features Efco’s advanced ‘Burn Right’ technology. By improving the combustion process harmful emissions are reduced by up to 75% for a cleaner running, more pleasant working experience. Moreover, as well as decreasing emissions the ‘Burn Right’ technology also increases fuel efficiency, thus reducing fuel demands by a massive 40% for lower running costs and fewer stops for refuelling. A practical ‘Easy On’ system and digital coil ignition, meanwhile, mean that starting is always quick and hassle-free, saving time and effort from the very beginning of the working day.

    The design of the DS 2800 T’s cutting system is equally excellent, with a lightweight and compact bevel gear drive included to reduce weight at the head, thus improving handling and manoeuvrability. This tells most when using the DS 2800 T with its dual nylon line trimmer head, allowing you to trim lawn edges and other tricky areas of lawn quickly, efficiently and with admirable precision. A tough metal brushcutter blade, meanwhile, is also supplied as standard for clearing denser vegetation and overgrown weeds. Whether using trimmer or grass blade, the inclusion of a tough plastic blade guard offers added comfort and safety by deflecting cuttings and other debris thrown up during operation.

    Moreover, as the trimmer head is fitted with a practical ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system (allowing you to advance the cutting line by simply tapping the trimmer head against the ground) it can also be used for clearing larger patches of long grass in areas inaccessible to a conventional lawnmower. Clever ‘Load & Go’ technology, meanwhile, means that the trimmer head can be reloaded in a matter of seconds without any need for additional tools, making it ideal for less experienced users.

    For even greater convenience, the DS 2800 T is fitted with an ergonomically designed dual-handlebar. This handlebar offers terrific comfort by distributing the weight of the machine more evenly, while also providing quick and easy access to all controls. By placing the cutting head at the centre of the user’s body, the handlebar also works to ensure freedom of movement, making the DS 2800 T easier to operate for extended periods and bolstering overall productivity. What’s more, with the engine casing made from tough aluminium and a superbly effective air filter also included in the construction of this impressive machine, the DS 2800 T is superbly reliable and capable of offering many years of dedicated service even when used for tough garden maintenance 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.
