Hyundai Promotes Safer, Easier Grass Trimming

Hyundai walk-behind grass trimmer
Supported by two heavy-duty wheels, the new Hyundai HYFT56 Field Trimmer has a flexible cutting mechanism making it ideal for controlling grass and weeds in areas that may be difficult, unsuitable or unsafe for a conventional mower or hand-held trimmer.

Known as the Hyundai HYFT56 Field Trimmer, the machine uses a 4mm diameter, high-speed revolving nylon cord to sever vegetation cleanly at any height from 38mm to 76mm (1.5in – 3in) above ground level.

The use of a flexible cutting mechanism minimises the risk of injury to the user or of impact damage being caused to walls, fences, trees or outdoor furniture. The possibility of stones and other solid objects being thrown at the operator or at people, animals or vehicles in the vicinity is greatly reduced as is breakage of bottles and other glass litter. Also eliminated is the potential costly damage that can result when a steel cutting blade strikes a solid object hidden in grass.

Powered by a Hyundai 5.5hp four-stroke petrol engine and supported by two 350mm (14in) diameter heavy-duty wheels, the HYFT56 has a maximum cutting width of 560mm (22in), giving a potential workrate of around 1,800 sq m/hr (0.44 acre/hour) at a constant walking speed of 54 metres/min (2 mph).

The comfort grip handles can be adjusted easily to suit operators of different heights and reach or can be folded completely for compact transport or storage. The height-adjustable cutting assembly is supported in work by a robust steel height guide and the cutting mechanism features a two-stage engagement system, both handle-mounted. There is a trimmer head drive engagement lever and a separate operator presence control (OPC) lever which, when released, stops rotation of the cutter head in less than a second.

Available for demonstrations through Hyundai Power Equipment’s national dealer network, the Hyundai HYFT56 Field Trimmer is priced at a competitive £415.83 (+VAT).
