Product Description

The Efco LR48TH petrol lawnmower offers a rare combination of both quality and sensible price tag in a machine that is sure to satisfy the needs of many gardeners the length and breadth of the U.K. An impressive specification starts with a reliable 135cc Honda GCV 135 petrol engine mounted to a 46cm steel cutting deck. This Honda engine is one of the most popular models and fitted to many high quality lawnmowers, including Honda’s own machines. The steel deck is of a premium grade and is easily adapted to suit different terrain with a central height-of-cut adjustment lever allowing mowing between 28mm – 75mm. A panel on the handlebars keeps all important control levers at your fingertips, including the OPC cable.

The Efco LR48TH is supplied with a very large 60-litre fabric grass collector and also a mulch plug, enabling you to cut and return grass clippings back into your lawn without the need for collection but also without leaving great clumps of cut grass-clippings all over your lawn. Running is smooth due to the excellent bearing mounted wheels and high-grip tyres that incorporate a new tread design keep traction at a premium and ensure the drive wheels of this self-propelled lawnmower work without fault. Weight 31kg.

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.
