The ‘loop’-handled ABR 42 is supplied with two cutter-heads (brush-blade; line-head) and features a 42.7cc two-stroke engine. A double-shoulder harness is included in the package. Capable of handling tougher domestic grass-trimming and brush cutting tasks, the powerful Alpina ABR 42 combines a torque-optimizing 26mm-diameter drive-shaft with a high-capacity 42.7cc two-stroke air-cooled engine rated at an impressive 1.7hp (1.25kW). Alpina’s provision of a luxury double-shoulder harness ensures the comfortable completion of extended landscaping applications; while their Easy Start system makes getting started a rapid, no-stress operation. The ABR 42 comes with two different cutter-heads - there’s a three-tooth metal brush-blade for heavier-duty jobs; and a nylon-line head for lighter-duty trimming and mowing (the line-head benefits from a time-saving Tap & Go mechanism). The compact ‘loop’ handle on this model means you’ll have no trouble working in space-restricted areas.
