Emak presents its new range of the word’s most lightweight brushcutters, establishing a new benchmark in their


The BC 240 S was developed for demanding private users who need to use a brushcutter regularly and are looking for a tool that is:

– lightweight: easy to handle and guaranteeing lasting efficiency,

– simple: easy starting, operation and maintenance

– compatible with fatigue-free operation

To meet these requirements, these new brushcutters use a series of technical solutions that are normally standard features only on professional models. Special attention was devoted to compliance with the most stringent anti-pollution regulations (Euro 2) and compatibility with alkylate petrol.

Thanks to the new super economy engines, these brushcutters will provide more than 50 minutes of continuous operation before refuelling.

• 21.7 cm³ 1.1 HP (0.82 kW) 2-stroke engines, in compliance with regulations (Euro 2), compatible with alkyl petrol and featuring a high linear torque curve even at low revs.

• Piston with 2 rings, diecast cylinder with Nickel plating, forged con rod and crankshaft: guaranteeing an extremely rugged and durable engine.

• Digital coil with electronic control and revs limiter: for easier starting, improved performance thanks to uniform combustion, and reduced fuel consumption.

• Aluminium cover and clutch support : optimised and reduced weight of the tool while imparting high strength and lasting reliability.

• Ø 24 mm aluminium tube, nylon sheath , 7 mm internal rigid shaft  and aluminium bevel gear pair for unimpeded power transmission.

• Air purge primer  visible on the engine cover ensures easier access and operation.

• The on/off switch  returns automatically to the “on” position after each stop (always on).

• Choke lever integral with half-throttle setting for fast and easy starting.

• “Easy on” device composed of a double spring in the starter cover combined with driver with two ratchets means reduced force with each pull and fast starting with fewer rope pulls.

• Filler cap with two grips (side and top) and tank filler neck in vertical position for easier refuelling.

• Transparent fuel tank for instant view of the quantity of fuel remaining.

• Innovative 130 mm Ø “LOAD & GO” line head: for straightforward line replacement – just 20 seconds to rewind the line and resume work.

• Built-in antivibration system: greatly reduced vibrations felt by the operator during use of the tool.

• Ergonomic loop and handles: clad in soft rubber offer an anatomic and comfortable grip of the tool in all operating conditions.

• 150 mm drive tube: the operator is always able to maintain an erect posture.

• New stone guards for efficient protection against projected debris. In addition, simply removing the skirt with line cutter knife makes the line head suitable for use with a metal blade.

• Harness, supplied as standard  is easy to adjust and imparts greater freedom of movement allowing improved weight distribution in accordance with the operator’s stature.

• Generously sized cloth air filter: guarantees high filtration efficiency and easy maintenance.

• Filter support (Emak patent) with anti-backflow element (prevents the filter from becoming fouled by fuel) for longer operation between filter maintenance procedures.
