Oregon ST275-E6 Cordless Trimmer/Edger

  • Product Details

    On 1967’s “Getting Better”, The Beatles sang the lyrics “I’ve got to admit it’s getting better/A little better all the time”. Had these words been written almost half a century later, they could easily have applied to Oregon’s ST275 Cordless Trimmer/Edger, which builds upon the success of the popular ST250 by offering a little extra clout. So when it comes to cordless grass trimming, Oregon’s ST275 is very much a sign of how things are getting better all the time.

    Take the ST275’s drive system, which features a superbly efficient electric motor and the same hi-tech 36V/2.4Ah lithium-ion battery pack used by existing tools in Oregon’s cordless range. This means that, like the ST250, the ST275 produces zero exhaust and next to no noise pollution, providing a superb alternative to petrol equipment in towns and other noise-sensitive areas. But in addition to this the ST275 produces 50% more torque than the ST250, so this tool makes it easier than ever to take on tough cutting and clearance work without the fumes and hassle of running a petrol machine.

    In addition to this the ST275 is four times quieter than a petrol machine and will happily start in an instant, with no warming up, fiddly pull cords or messy refuelling. Instead you need only push a button to get the motor running, and since the battery will hold charge for months you can set straight to work even if it has been in storage over winter; should the battery run low, all you need to do is use Oregon’s C600 charger (supplied as standard with this package) and it’ll be fully charged and ready to go in only two hours!

    Supplied with an Oregon® quick load trimmer head and tough .080″ Platinum Gatorline™ cutting line, the ST275 will make light work of most weeds and long grass. And with the flip-down edging guide you can also switch quickly between trimming long grass and tidying lawn borders without having to compromise on a precision finish. The quick reloading system and semi-automatic line feed – allowing you to advance the cutting line by simply tapping the head against the ground – are similarly convenient, meaning that even challenging workloads can be tackled with ease.

    Can things get any better? Or were the Beatles wrong? Well as battery technology is developing at an incredible rate these days, we’ll have to wait and see. But if you want to see how much cordless grass trimmers have already advanced in recent years, then the quiet, clean and effective cutting performance delivered by Oregon’s ST275 Cordless Trimmer/Edger is definitely the way to go.

    About Oregon
    You perhaps wouldn’t have thought that the timber beetle, a creature whose larva buries deep into wood while it develops, would be an obvious candidate for having inspired a revolution in chainsaw technology, but the world is a surprising place sometimes. The logger and inventor Joseph Burford Cox was almost certainly surprised when, after several months of searching for a way to improve the chains used on early petrol powered chainsaws, he had an epiphany in the shape of the jaws of a grub.

    The story goes that Joseph was chopping firewood one chilly autumn day in 1946 when he became distracted by the sight of a timber beetle larva, roughly the size of a man’s forefinger, easily chewing its way through the tough wood of a tree stump. It occurred to Joseph that the larva's alternating C-shaped jaws could be the solution for which he had been looking and set to work in the basement workshop of his home in Portland, Oregon, eventually emerging with a ground-breaking new saw chain. The basic design of Joseph Cox’s chain is still evident today in modern chipper type chains, which is impressive given that it was inspired by a creature often considered a pest.

    Joseph didn’t stop there though, and he and his wife, Alice, founded The Oregon Saw Chain Co. in 1947. Over the decades that followed The Oregon Saw Chain Co. grew, grew and grew some more, eventually morphing from a small operation run out of the Cox household basement into a massive multinational corporation, especially under the guidance of John Gray, who purchased the company from Cox in 1953. The Oregon Co. is also notable for its pioneering research into reducing the hazards of bar-nose kickback during the 1960s and ‘70s. The technology developed by Oregon helped to vastly improve chainsaw safety and Oregon engineers were heavily involved in the years of work that finally, in 1985, resulted in the kickback-performance requirements found in the voluntary chain saw safety standard known as ANSI B175.1.

    Today, the Oregon brand continues to be an industry leader in more than a hundred countries around the world. With over sixty years of experience in the business and a continuing dedication to safety, ease of use and innovation, the company is now well known across the globe for the reliability and quality of its products. As such, it’s fair to say that the Oregon Co. has come a long way since its beginning with a man out in the woods watching a bug chew wood.
