Whether you are a home gardener or a professional contractor, there are a lot of different jobs which need to be tackled in order to keep a lawn or garden looking its very best. There are also a lot of different tools available with which to take on these tasks; trimmers for trimming, edgers for edging, pruners for pruning, and so on. You can, of course, buy a dedicated tool for each of these various jobs, but a far less expensive and more convenient option is to invest in a quality multi-tool, such as Shindaiwa’s excellent M243S system.

Benefiting from Shindaiwa’s usual high engineering standards, with every Shindaiwa manufactured component individually inspected to ensure quality, the M243S is a professional, space saving multi-tool with a variety of quick-fit attachments (available separately) which make it ideal for taking on almost any garden maintenance task. The M243S power unit comes with an industrious 23.9cc two-stroke petrol engine, delivering reliably smooth running power and featuring a Soft Start system to ensure quick and hassle-free starting.

Moreover, the ergonomic design of the M243S makes it fantastically easy to use. An injection-moulded loop handle, for example, provides excellent grip and control while also helping to ensure your comfort during operation, while an intuitive and easy to access control system further increases convenience. In addition to this, the inclusion of a transparent, high-capacity 0.62 litre fuel tank makes it easier to see when refuelling is required to help you manage the working day.

However, and at the risk of stating the obvious, the most prominent virtue of the multi-tool system is its fantastic versatility. Featuring a positive coupler design which allows for quick, tool-free changing of attachments, there is an impressively wide range of tasks to which you can turn this outstanding machine. A commercial grade Speed-Feed® 375 trimmer attachment, for example, is ideal for precision trimming and clearing long grass, while an edger attachment makes it easy to achieve perfectly pristine lawn borders. Other attachments include a long-reach pruner, a potent hedgetrimmer and even a powered brush, which together might well combine to make Shindaiwa’s M243S the only tool you really need, thus handily also freeing up a lot of space your shed.

About Shindaiwa
In 1955 the ‘Shindaiwa Hurricane' hit the marketplace, an electric chainsaw that proved to be an instant success with the construction industry. Since this time numerous design awards have been bestowed upon the legendary Japanese manufacturer, including the ‘Good Design Award' in 1985. In fact, Shindaiwa claim to have invented the hand-held leaf blower market in that same year and have continued to produce some of the most respected professional outdoor power equipment in the world. Painstaking research is at the centre of all Shindaiwa products that are developed and tested by skilled engineers before being manufactured using the highest quality components available.

It is this attention to detail that gives the company the confidence to offer a 2-year commercial use guarantee on all of its products, happy in the knowledge that it will be a rare occasion when a Shindaiwa tool lets you down. In 2002 their first 4-cycle product, the T2500 petrol brush cutter, was developed and paved the way for the cleaner running and more environmentally friendly range of power tools of the future. There is no doubting that as customers' needs have changed, the Shindaiwa product line has moved with them.
