Efco DS 3800T Petrol Brushcutter

  • Product Details

    Having access to a large garden abounding with luscious green vegetation is a wonderful luxury. Such privilege, however, comes with its own responsibilities, and larger gardens often require arduous work to keep them from becoming overgrown. If this sounds familiar investing in Efco’s DS 3800 T may be a good idea, as in terms of brushcutters designed specifically for domestic use it doesn’t get much better than this; fitted with an ergonomically designed dual-handlebar for outstanding comfort and control, the DS 3800 T delivers a magnificent combination of power, manoeuvrability and convenience perfect for both dedicated home gardeners and semi-professional users taking on tough horticultural work.

    Driven by a reassuringly reliable 36.3cc two-stroke petrol engine, the DS 3800 T also benefits from the improved combustion provided by Efco’s sophisticated ‘Burn Right’ technology. The ‘Burn Right’ system works by ensuring that fuel is burned as cleanly and efficiently as possible, thus reducing particle emissions (including harmful polluting agents such as unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides) and improving fuel economy by up to 40%! The improved combustion process also means that fewer carbon deposits are left by unburned fuel, thus reducing service requirements. Moreover, for an even longer working life and optimum performance in tough cutting conditions the engine is built with sturdy aluminium housing and a high performance air filter.

    Next to consider is the DS 3800 T’s cutting system, which delivers superb versatility in the form of a dual nylon line trimmer head and a tough metal brushcutter blade (both supplied as standard). Both of these cutting modes benefit from the inclusion of a tough plastic blade guard, and Efco’s new bevel gear design makes switching between cutting modes quick and simple.

    The trimmer head is most effective when used for cutting long grass and tidying tricky areas of lawn, but is also notable for featuring ‘Tap & Go’ line advancement (allowing you to advance the cutting line by simply tapping the trimmer head against the ground) and a ‘Load & Go’ system (enabling supremely efficient reloading of the cutting line without having to dismantle the trimmer head), both of which help to make using the DS 3800 T pleasingly intuitive. The inclusion of a tough three-tooth grass blade, meanwhile, makes even tougher cutting work a breeze, including clearing dense undergrowth, weeds and longer grass.

    Furthermore, the inclusion of a spring-assisted ‘Easy On’ system to reduce starter cord resistance, along with electronically assisted digital coil ignition, means that starting the DS 3800 T is always admirably hassle-free. Ease of operation is similarly ensured by the ergonomic dual-handlebar, which has been designed to ensure an optimal working position, complete freedom of movement and unimpeded access to all controls. When combined with the self-lubricating anti-vibration bearings fitted within the drive shaft, this means that you can use the DS 3800 T in complete comfort even for extended periods, thus making it easier to achieve the magnificent finish your garden deserves.

    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.
