Blowers SA 3000: technology which is clean, pleasant to use and easy to maintain

Ergonomical and eco-friendly: this is the combination of qualities which make the latest generation of Efco SA 3000 blowers so unique. These multi-purpose tools can be used for everything from cleaning pedestrian footways, streets and wider areas, to collecting twigs, leaves and grass cuttings back home in the garden.
The compact and rounded shape, the hose and the light weight ensure correct work posture, while the VibCut system noticeably reduces vibrations transmitted to the operator when working.
SA 3000 blowers are equipped with a Euro 2 engine, which guarantees a notable reduction in emissions and fuel consumption without compromising on power and efficiency. Not only this, noise pollution is now a thing of the past thanks to this innovative engine.
Easy to start and simple to maintain, the blowers may be converted into vacuum cleaners. Thanks to the steel mulching blade on the suction fan, the collected materials - leaves, grass cuttings and other debris - are chopped up into fine fragments. This reduces their volume inside the bag to as much as 1/12 of their original volume, thereby ensuring fewer emptying stops.

Lawnmowers MR 55 TBX - MR 55 TBI - MR 55 HXF: reliability and performance that make light work of large surfaces

This new family of lawnmowers with aluminium deck represents the dream of all landscape professionals: Toughness and reliability over all types of surfaces, guaranteed by the large diameter metal wheels. Furthermore, these tools offer considerable load capacity of up to 75 l (thanks to the aerodynamic shape of the deck interior and the broad expulsion channel), even when working with wet grass. MR series lawnmowers are the ideal solution for areas over 2,300 m2. They are also designed to deliver constant performance and high quality, even during more intense and prolonged use. The mulching kit (blade and plug) is supplied as standard. 

Scarifiers AG 40 R45 - AG 50 H60: strength and power to take on the toughest of terrains

Scarifiers, which promotes lawn growth and prevents grass from being suffocated by moss, thatch and other coverings, is a delicate task that requires strong machines and powerful engines: these are characteristics found in the new range of aerators from Efco. The hardened steel blades are ideal for even the toughest surfaces and the deepest cavities, while the Robin and Honda engines ensure a constant work rate and perfect power transmission. Besides being built for demanding applications, AG 40 R45 and AG 50 H60 scarifiers have been designed and developed to enhance user comfort: the ball-bearing wheels provide optimum manoeuvrability under any working conditions, while the height-adjustment system with memory enables the machine to be rapidly repositioned at the desired height after being transported.

Wheeled Bruschcutters DR 51 B6 - DR 51 VB6 - DR 52 VBR6: comfort over the long run

Manoeuvrability: this is the highlight of the new range of Efco wheeled bruschcutters, which is intended to cater for landscape professionals. The centralised cutting height control, which is located on the handgrip, ensures maximum comfort. Thanks to the large rear wheels, holes or bumps in the working surface are no longer a problem. The DR 51 B6, DR 51 VB6 and DR 52 VBR6 models are the ideal solution for demanding jobs, such as clearing and removing high or dense grass, cleaning in undergrowth and around ditches. No job is too demanding thanks to the reinforced cutting blades, reinforced steel cutting plates and the tubular steel frame and handgrip, a guarantee of long-term durability.

Transporters TN 2700 and TN 3400: just the job for awkward spaces

Practical and compact, these machines are particularly suitable for agricultural use, for example transporting firewood or harvesting fruit. The tight turning radius (700 mm) and 50° dump angle, which is operated manually by means of a convenient lever, make them ideal for handling tight spaces and steep gradients.
