Long service intervals

  • A strong Poly-V belt combined with our maintenance-free starter DuraStarter™ and efficient filter-system Active Air Filtration™ ensures long service intervals

Light and powerful

  • A light, compact and powerful machine with superior power-to-weight ratio.

Maintenance-free air filter

High power with less fuel

  • Our built-in automatic filter compensation SmartCarb™ maintains high power and lowers fuel consumption.

Active Air Filtration™

  • Our two-step filtration system with centrifugal cleaning and a single paper filter increases product life and extends service intervals.

Reduced wear

  • Reduced wear thanks to the drive belt with fully sealed transmission, which keeps out the cutting dust.

Smooth blade stop

  • Reduces the stop time of the blade when the machine is switched off, which enables you to quickly move on to the next job.


  • New DualCharge™ engine technology provides more power, lower fuel consumption and greatly reduced emissions.


  • Our built-in automatic filter compensation maintains high power during the air filter life time.

Maintenance-free starter

  • Patented, dust-sealed starter unit, seals the return spring and the pulley bearing. This makes the starter virtually maintenance free further boosting the reliability of our cutters.

Cuts close to walls or ground

  • The cutting arm is reversible which lets you cut closer to walls or the ground. The drive belt has a fully sealed transmission. This keeps out cutting dust, reducing wear on the belt.

Anti-vibration system

  • Our anti-vibration system reduces vibrations in the cutter handles, so they are more comfortable to hold and can be used for longer periods. The distance between the handles is large to enable the user a comfortable operating position and to reduce strain. The handles and the short engine body mean the user always stands close to the machine, for easier handling and control.
