Brushcutters are an important weapon in the dedicated gardener’s arsenal, perfect for trimming edges, borders and other hard to reach areas of overgrown lawn inaccessible to a conventional lawnmower, but also excellent for clearing areas of thicker scrub too rough for most grass trimmers to handle. Designed to be just as easy to use as it is impressively powerful, Honda’s UMK425 UE is a straight-shaft petrol brushcutter which offers cutting performance, versatility and outstanding convenience in a single compact package.
Key to the utility of the UMK425 UE is its dual cutting capability. For thicker areas of built-up vegetation, including nettles, brambles and weeds, the UMK425 UE features a tough three-tooth blade option which will cut through even dense scrub with admirable efficiency. When a more delicate touch is required, however, the brushcutter’s nylon line cutting system can be used to achieve a precision finish on edges and borders. Moreover, the cutting system also incorporates a protective head guard and tap-and-go line advancement for increased safety, efficiency and convenience during operation.
Power to the cutting system is supplied via a fuel-efficient and quiet running 25cc GX25 mini four-stroke petrol engine, incorporating a quick starting recoil start system for added convenience. As this engine is capable of delivering up to 810 watts of power at 7,000rpm, you will definitely appreciate the effect of the UMK425 UE’s anti-vibration clutch system, which makes the brushcutter pleasingly comfortable to use for such a powerful machine. For added comfort, safety and convenience, the UMK425 UE is also equipped with a comfort harness and adjustable ‘bike style’ handles which have been ergonomically designed to increase grip and control over extended periods of use.
The UMK425 UE is also admirably tough, with a heavy duty transmission head and a six-tooth transmission shaft bolstering the durability offered by Honda’s typical commitment to engineering excellence. Furthermore, the UMK425 UE can also be equipped with either a four-tooth blade or a tough saw blade (both available separately), further increasing the impressive versatility of this outstanding machine.
