Tocal Winner

And the winner is …


Jo Eyes, from Wyong Creek, was the lucky winner of the Ecotech brush cutter gate prize donated by Coast & Valley Tractors for the recent Tocal Field Days.


Known fondly as the ‘brush cutter on steroids’, the Italian-made Ecotech High Wheeled Trimmer is popular with small acreage owners, maintenance organisations and gardening contractors who need to clean up heavy grass and vegetation growth.


“We call it the brush cutter on steroids because it has a four stroke petrol engine and a 600mm cutting width trimmer cord,” said Josh Plevey, Sales Manager at Coast & Valley Tractors. “But despite its power, the Ecotech brush cutter makes trimming and slashing really light work compared to a traditional shoulder strap style ‘whipper snipper’. The wheels also reduce the risk of back injury and improve occupational health and safety.”


“The DCS 60 model that we donated for the Tocal gate prize has 410mm diameter rubber tyred wheels and there’s also a DSC 06 traction model with pneumatic floatation wheels. The larger diameter wheels provide excellent stability when mowing on slopes, uneven ground or rocky surfaces. Users can replace the long life cutting cord in under 10 seconds and the cord is a much safer alternative than a metal cutting blade, which could create dangerous sparks from striking exposed rocks.


“Ecotech also has an offset version for working along fence lines and a series of heavier walk-behind slasher models for dealing with dense overgrown areas.”
