Efco LR48-TK Essential Self Propelled Rotary Lawnmower

  • Product Details

    Ideal for use in medium to large domestic gardens, the LR48-TK Essential Series self-propelled rotary lawnmower will happily tackle tough mowing jobs while offering superb value for money. This is because it combines Efco’s high-quality engineering with a user-friendly design which makes it straightforward but dependable, taking the hassle out of routine lawn maintenance.

    Power to the self-propulsion system is provided via a 140cc EMAK K 600 OHV petrol engine, delivering a steady forward speed of 3.6km/h. When combined with an ergonomic one-piece handlebar and bearing-mounted wheels, as well as a 46cm (18”) cutting width, this means the LR48-TK is perfect for maintaining lawns 1400m2 and 1800m2 in size, even on rough or gently sloping ground.

    The LR48-TK’s cutting performance is equally impressive, with a mulching blade fitted to reduce the size of clippings. This maximises the collection capacity of the 60 litre grass collector, saving time when mowing larger lawns. The LR48-TK also features centralised cutting height adjustment from 28mm to 75mm, so you can quickly adapt the mower to the conditions at hand via a single convenient lever.

    Furthermore, with the addition of a mulching plug (available as an optional extra), the LR48-TK can also be converted for collection-free mowing: in this mode grass clippings are ejected back onto the lawn to serve as a natural fertiliser.

    And since the Efco LR48-TK is constructed with a sturdy steel cutting deck for resistance to impact damage and corrosion, you can rely upon this hardworking machine to provide years of exceptional service.

    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.
