Honda is cutting $100 off the RRP of its advanced four-stroke straight shaft brushcutters for mowing contractors and commercial consumers.
The great savings apply to Honda's versatile UMK425 and UMK435 models in both loop and bike handle variants, and is available until 31 December, 2007, or while stocks last.
According to Honda Power Equipment Manager, Bob Donaldson, the Honda straight shaft brushcutter range has long been a favourite amongst garden-care contractors and commercial users.
Donaldson said, "Honda's brushcutter range has developed a strong reputation for durability, reliability and lower long term cost, making it ideal for demanding commercial applications."
"These qualities are crucial to contractors and commercial consumers' ability to operate efficiently and cost effectively."
Honda's UMK425 Loop features an all-new Generation II, 25cc, advanced four-stroke engine providing a perfect balance of power and efficiency.
Honda's UMK425 ergonomically designed easy-grip loop handle and anti-vibration engine mount also enable superior handling and operator comfort.
For slightly tougher jobs, the UMK425 Bike has the added benefit of a four-tooth metal blade, able to cut through the stubborn weeds.
Honda's premium UMK435 model is also available in both a loop and bike-style handle.
Powered by a Generation II, 35cc mini-four-stroke engine, the UMK435 model is ideal for clearing heavy weeds and undergrowth.
It comes complete with a heavy duty line head, four-tooth metal blades and two different guards to suit the application.
All Honda brushcutters are 360° inclinable, for continuous power on difficult angles and slopes, making them well suited for rough and demanding terrain.
Donaldson said there were several other benefits from using a Honda brushcutter. He said, "Our entire Honda product line-up is four-stroke, meaning there's no need for petrol and oil mixing; for the commercial user this means there is no wasting time mixing fuel."
"Honda's four-stroke brushcutters are also more fuel efficient, and produce lower noise and exhaust emissions than their two-stoke counterparts."
Donaldson said that owners would appreciate Honda's 'one pull easy start system' for easy-starting in all conditions, even after long periods in storage or in high temperatures.
All Honda straight shaft brushcutters include safety glasses and an operator harness.
