“The new machines that we launched during 2016 and those that we will preview at the Bologna show stand out for their high level of technological innovation, which allows us to respond effectively to the evolution of consumer demand, increasingly interested in comfortable, high-performance machines. We concentrated our investments on improving the aspects of handling, weight distribution, ease of start-up, and simplicity of use of the machines, managing to reach the goals we set ourselves at the design stage». These are the words with which Giovanni Masini, Marketing Director of Emak, presents the novelties from the Reggio company (headquartered in Bagnolo in Piano) for EIMA International 2016. In the forestry field; the new MTT 2500 and MTT 3600 pruning chainsaws by Efco, plus the GST 250 and GST 360 by Oleo-Mac, featuring a design by Giugiaro that harmonizes appealing aesthetics with the quality and functionality of a product designed to offer manoeuvrability (thanks to its compact size and low weight) and high performance. These are characteristics that make these new chainsaws ideal working tools for pruning, grafting, and tree surgery. The design is guided by ergonomics also for motocultivators 405 S and 407 S by Bertolini, and BRIK 5 S and KAM 7 S by Nibbi, also anticipated for their debut at the BolognaFiere spaces. The differential and reverser levers require minimal operating effort, to avoid tiring the operator during continuous use of the machines. The positioning of the controls “at hand” also provides a solid mastery of the vehicle even in the toughest situations. The new clutch control with EHS system also makes it extremely easy to work with the Bertolini and Nibbi motocultivators, minimizing the user’s stress and effort. The Emak stand, where the Sabart, Comet, Raico, and Geoline brands are also exhibited, also hosts the debut of the Aluminium Pro professional range of lawnmowers with 51 cm cutting, ideal for working over larger areas (over 2,000 sqm). In particular, the Ar 53 Tk Aluminium Pro and Ar 53 Vbd Aluminium Pro models by Efco, and the Max 53 Tk Aluminium Pro and Max 53 Vbd Aluminium Pro models by Oleo-Mac can count on four-stroke engines, designed with advanced technology capable of offering ease of start-up and high performance even in the face of prolonged use over time.
