Oregon expanded the Oregon 40V MAX Cordless Tool System. The line expansion includes a new trimmer/edger, hedge trimmer, and rapid battery charger offering a system that operates on the powerful and lightweight Oregon 40V MAX Lithium Ion batteries.
Oregon first launched the CS250 chain saw one year ago. Utilizing PowerSharp, the chain saw has a built-in chain sharpening system, allowing the user to sharpen on the saw, on the job, in seconds. This innovation is just another way the Oregon tools demonstrate “always-ready” convenience.
As with the chain saw, the ST250 trimmer/edger and HT250 hedge trimmer continue to combine the convenience of cordless tools with power and performance. Both follow the Oregon CS250 chain saw in delivering high quality and ergonomic design and handling. The new tools utilize the Oregon PowerNow battery platform, a system of premium Lithium Ion batteries that are compatible across all Oregon cordless tools, including the CS250 chain saw and the ST250 trimmer/edger.
The ST250 trimmer/edger, with its dual line cutting head and flip-down edge guide, is a true 2-in-1 tool. The trimmer utilizes Oregon’s Swift Load trimmer head for fast, easy string loading and reliable bump feed line advancement. The ST250 features a variable speed trigger, allowing the user to determine cutting speed required and ultimately maximizing run time. The trimmer comes standard with Oregon’s Platinum Gatorline, which offers great cutting performance and additional resistance to cracking and breaking. Weighing only 9.4lbs with Endurance battery pack, the light weight, well balanced, straight shaft trimmer with adjustable large grip handle, offers excellent ergonomics.
The HT250 hedge trimmer features 24”, laser precision cut blades for long reach and cleaner, more efficient cutting for healthier plants. The Trimmer is built with dual action blades for reduced vibration, low noise, and smooth cutting action. The balanced handle placement provides comfortable operation. As with the ST250, the Hedge Trimmer features a variable trigger. The HT250 weighs 8.8 lbs. with standard battery pack (9.8 lbs. with Endurance battery pack.)
The C750 rapid battery charger (sold separately) charges either Oregon battery pack in 30 minutes. For the user with multiple batteries, this means one battery can power a tool while the other quickly charges.
