May - June 2022 | Back

The Reggio Emilia-based company Sabart, specialised in the distribution of spare parts and accessories for the forestry, gardening, agricultural and accident prevention sectors, offers important new products with the Forestal branded range. It starts with the new FOR6000 and FOR8000 Extreme Line electronic pruners, designed for the care of vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees, equipped with a 4.0 Ah rechargeable lithium-ion cordless battery with quick coupling. Comfort and safety are ensured by a double emergency switch and an ergonomic handle equipped with a hand protection system, while a small display allows the battery charge to be monitored. Both models are available with a 1/4" chain with 1.1 mm - 48 links and the 8" bar protective cover and weigh approximately 2 kg. The two pruners differ only in the presence of an additional handle for two-handed work in the FOR8000 model. Also new in the chainsaw segment, the Widia Forestal chains are designed for professional use in harsh conditions and in the presence of debris. Designed for a longer cutting life compared to other models, Widia Forestal chains tend to retain their sharpness over time and offer a high cutting capacity even when they come into contact with sandy soil when working on roots and stumps of felled trees or on wood consumed by fire - the Reggio Emilia-based company emphasises. They are available in four sizes: 325 pitch and 1.3 - 1.5 - 1.6 mm thickness and 3/8" LP pitch and 1.3 mm thickness. Two other new entries in the Extreme Line are Carving oil and Strong K70 Super Synthetic Evolution oil for professional use. The first is a biodegradable oil specifically for lubricating small electric pruning saws. The second, on the other hand, is an evolution of the current Sabart lubricant range and has been specially created for highly stressed two-stroke engines (air- and water-cooled engines, engines for gardening equipment). Strong K70 Super Synthetic Evolution oil can be mixed with all types of petrol and high-octane fuels.
