DJ Turfcare has introduced the new Bushranger Edger E35, specifically designed for local authority and contracting work. This is an extremely robustly built edger with an advanced 3.1hp Kawasaki FJ100 4 stroke OHV engine delivering plenty of power and long, reliable service.
The machine features a number of innovations with new controls developed to reduce operator hand fatigue, notably a 'dead man's handle' with a micro switch cut-out for greater safety and which negates the need for the operator to hold down a lever.
The Exposure Limit Value (ELV) of the Bushranger is 567 minutes per day, with low vibration and low noise, aided by a muffler and cover, allowing use for over eight hours. Controlled manually from the operator station, a simple lever is used to engage the cutting blade, with a similar arrangement for the cutting depth and kerb wheel; the third wheel dropping down to run in the gutter. The cutting depth has seven settings up to 72mm/2.85" and the cutter head tilts to the left and right to provide several different angles for border edging.
"The Bushranger has always been a very popular edger with professionals and local authorities," says David Jenkins, DJ Turfcare's Managing Director, "and the new Bushranger E35 offers rugged performance combined with a top class finish, whilst providing the user with near effortless operation and high productivity."
