32 APRIL 2017 OUTDOOR POWER EQUIPMENT www.outdoorpowerequipment.com WOOD HANDLERS (CHAIN SAWS, CHIPPERS, LOG SPLITTERS & STUMP GRINDERS) EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY FOCUS Greenworks Commercial 82-volt chain saw The GS 180 chain saw combines Greenworks Commercial's 82-volt lithium-ion battery with brushless motor technology to power through every job from routine maintenance to felling trees with an 18-inch Oregon bar and chain. The brushless motor provides high torque, zero maintenance and zero exhaust all while decreasing vibration and noise levels. The GS 180 easily starts by pulling the trigger and is so quiet that it allows operators to start their day earlier without bothering clients, making it ideal for noise-sensitive sites. This professionally engineered and constructed product is gear reduced for higher torque output, and it features an electronic chain brake for user safety, auto oiler with oil view window, aluminum wrap-around handle and steel bucking spikes. This tough, powerful and lightweight chain saw is ideal for cutting firewood, trimming, and felling trees or doing forestry work. Greenworks Commercial Honda VersAttach multi-purpose system Honda Power Equipment entered the split-shaft trimmer market with the introduction of the Honda VersAttach multi-purpose system. Featuring 2 powerhead options and 6 different attachments, the VersAttach system combines the power and reliability of Honda 4-stroke engines with a robust lineup of tools to fit a wide range of lawn and garden needs. The VersAttach system offers 2 powerhead models: the UMC425, powered by a Honda GX25 mini 4-stroke engine, as well as the UMC435, powered by a Honda GX35 mini 4-stroke engine. The design of the Honda mini 4-stroke engine provides for full 360-degree operation, allowing the VersAttach to be used — and stored — upright, sideways or even upside down. The 4-stroke engine also eliminates the need to mix fuel and oil, saving the operator valuable time, money and frustration of trying to get the right fuel/oil mixture. Each model can be paired with an optional interchangeable pole pruner, hedge trimmer, edger, blower, line trimmer or cultivator that fits quickly and securely into the attachment shaft by way of Honda's SureLoc joint-locking system, saving time and effort for the user. Honda Power Equipment Husqvarna 550 XP chain saw Designed for tree care professionals and skilled landowners, Husqvarna's 550 XP chain saw is loaded with innovative solutions for efficient, convenient operation. The 550 XP is powered by Husqvarna's X-Torq engine technology, which provides more power with up to 20 percent less fuel consumption and 75 percent less exhaust emission. In addition, the saw comes equipped with AutoTune, an automated setting that optimizes engine performance by tuning the carburetor to compensate for fuel type, altitude, humidity, temperature and air filter status. The saw's productivity and reliability are complemented by ergonomic features such as the LowVib system, which reduces vibration levels to the operator to lessen fatigue even after long periods of use. A centrifugal air cleaning system removes larger dust and debris before it reaches the air filter. This results in reduced air filter cleanings over time and improved engine life.
