The Oleo-Mac PPX 250 Telescopic Pole Pruner from Parklands Power Products Pty Ltd , extends to 3.12m, to easily reach up to 5m from the ground, without the need for ladders. With a pole diameter of 38 mm and a two-stroke engine with high power output, the operator can cut and prune branches of all types of trees with less effort.
The 25.4 cm3 1.2 hp (0.9 kW) provides high torque output that remains linear even at low speed. Low fuel consumption and a 0.6 l fuel tank allow the user extended running time before refuelling.
A high strength aluminium shroud over the engine provides added support in rough working conditions.
The chain lubrication oil reservoir is made of tough polymer to provide protection against accidental impact or piercing.
Extremely easy to use, the pruner fixing system allows the operator to adjust to five cutting positions (from 0° to 90°), providing greater visibility of the cutting area and allowing more precise cutting.
The rear grip has all the controls within easy reach. Chip expulsion is facilitated by the wide discharge chute at the guide bar attachment point.
The rear handle features a throttle lock system to prevent accidental revving. Made of soft oil-resistant rubber, the grip is slip-proof. Together with the locking rings, guided and shielded bearings prevent accidental disengagement of the mobile section of the pole.
Without the need for special tools, the fixing and adjustment rings are easy to set and lock the telescopic poles. Adjustment is further assisted by internal steel springs.
A lift starter device automatically disengages the starter when the throttle is opened fully, to prevent the engine from flooding.
Electronic ignition (capacitive type) provides easy starting and high performance, while providing long service life. A special priming device facilitates cold starts, restarts after fuel top-ups and assures quick starts after long periods of storage.
With lower noise emissions, reduced vibration with rolling supports and spring spacers, as well as a sturdy anti-vibration mount on the engine shroud, operator comfort is not disregarded.
