BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: Honda India Power Products Limited (HIPP) has unveiled its new 1.3hp Backpack Brush Cutter across different regions in India. HIPP offers a wide range of models ranging from 1hp for light usage and up to 2hp for heavy duty usage. A brushcutter is an essential part of any serious gardener’s tool kit, useful for tackling a variety of jobs ranging from precision trimming to clearing thicker patches of scrub and brush
Announcing the product launch Vijay Upreti, Sr. Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Honda India Power Products said “With increasing scarcity of farm labour and shrinking farmland sizes, customers are seeking more portable solutions for their regular de-weeding and crop harvesting requirements. A large number of consumers today have started using brush cutters for their daily de-weeding, crop harvesting, farm and road-side maintenance needs”.
The objective of launching a new variant is to offer a cost-effective solution to customers in the hilly and mountainous regions of the country. The new model has been designed for efficient removal of weeds in sloping farmlands and fruit orchards through its dual cutting system. For clearing thick patches of weeds, brambles, nettles and long grass, a three-tooth metal blade option is included. In situations where greater delicacy is required, however, such as when trimming the edges of flowerbeds or around ornaments, a nylon cutting line system combines with the UMR435 T’s flexible shaft to offer outstanding precision. The machine offers an effective solution for precision weed removal amongst closely spaced row crops.
The compact UMR435T backpack brush cutter model comes in two variants, L2ST with 2-teeth bar blade and LEDT with 3-teeth blade and Nylon Line cutter. Driven by an industrious 35cc GX35 mini four-stroke petrol engine, it is designed to be superbly fuel efficient and potent enough to prove reliable in even the toughest conditions.
Ergonomically designed backpack harness with flexible shaft and coil spring mounted engine minimizes user fatigue so essential for long duration working.
