While the idea of a professional gardener may occasionally conjure up the image of a genial old man pottering around a luscious green garden, in reality landscaping work can also involve long days clearing dense scrubland in hot and dusty environments. When taking on such work, it is important not to underestimate the challenges involved. Part of the ‘Sharp-Pro’ range, Efco’s 8460 is a professional brushcutter designed for taking on any tough cutting work you might face, supplied with both a tough dual nylon line trimmer head and a hardened three-tooth brushcutter blade to ensure great results whatever the situation at hand.
Driven by a powerful 45.7cc two-stroke petrol engine, the 8460 also features a handy choke lever and a primer bulb to guarantee quick and hassle-free starting. Moreover, to make sure that it can stand up to the rigours of professional use the engine is built with a durable steel crankshaft, a magnesium alloy engine case, and a professional quality air filter designed to ensure exceptional reliability even in dusty environments. For added convenience, the 8460 is also fitted with a special high-capacity 1.5 litre fuel tank designed to reduce service requirements and provide increased run time between fuel stops.
As mentioned above, the 8460 is also supplied with both a high quality ‘Tap & Go’ trimmer head and a tempered steel brushcutter blade to provide outstanding grass cutting versatility. The trimmer head is light and manoeuvrable enough to handle precise trimming work with ease, but with the semi-automatic ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system allowing you to advance the cutting line by simply tapping the cutting head against the ground it is also efficient enough to cut larger patches of long grass with no trouble. The brushcutter blade, meanwhile, is hardened for excellent durability, making it perfect for even the toughest clearance work.
Both cutting modes benefit from the added protection offered by a sturdy plastic blade guard, designed to deflect grass, stones, soil and other debris thrown up by the cutting gear. Perhaps the most important ergonomic feature of the 8460, however, is its intelligently designed dual-handlebar, which is positioned to offer an optimal working posture, complete freedom of movement and easy access to all controls. Between this and the professional quality harness also supplied as standard, you can therefore be assured of working confidently and comfortably until the job at hand is done.
