In small or complicated gardens, replete with various nooks, crannies, interestingly shaped borders and other obstacles, using a lawnmower alone is rarely enough to achieve a truly pristine finish. This is because there will always be patches of lawn, such as around flowerbeds and ornaments or under bushes, which a conventional lawnmower cannot reach. This is where owning a high quality grass trimmer can make all the difference. Efco’s STARK 2500 T, for example, is a tough, straight-shaft grass trimmer designed specifically for domestic use, combining superb reliability, great cutting power and pleasing manoeuvrability in one easy to operate machine.
Powered by a hard working 25.4cc two-stroke petrol engine, the STARK 2500 T features a user-friendly, primer-assisted recoil pull starting system to ensure quick starting and smooth engine pick-up. To help ensure convenience this engine is built with Efco’s clever ‘Burn Right’ technology, which reduces harmful emissions by up to 80% while also increasing fuel efficiency, thus minimising running costs and ensuring clean running performance at all times. This, along with the STARK 2500 T’s high-capacity 0.75 litre fuel tank (which is semi-transparent to let you keep track of the fuel level) makes using this impressive brushcutter a pleasingly hassle-free experience.
Supplied as standard with a handy ‘Tap & Go’ dual nylon line trimmer head, the STARK 2500 T is equally capable of precise trimming work and cutting larger areas of longer grass and weeds. The semi-automatic ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system, meanwhile, improves efficiency by allowing you to advance the cutting line effortlessly; simply bump the trimmer head against the ground and the nylon line is effortlessly fed on to an optimal working length. This saves valuable time and effort, while for added safety and comfort a sturdy plastic debris guard deflects clippings, stones and anything else thrown up by the cutting head during operation. Moreover, with a tough grass blade also included you can even use the STARK 2500 T for taking on denser patches of rough grass, weeds and scrub.
One especially impressive element of this excellent machine is the inclusion of an ergonomically designed dual-handlebar, more commonly seen on more expensive professional machines but here providing superb comfort and control to make even the toughest domestic cutting jobs easier than ever. As well as offering an optimal working position and complete freedom of movement, the dual-handlebar provides easy access to all controls, making operation even simpler, while self-lubricating bearings on the transmission work to reduce vibration levels for yet greater comfort. Moreover, with a forged-steel shaft and connecting rod, the STARK 2500 T is also amazingly tough, and thus able to guarantee reliable performance and an impressively long service life.
