The BRD-280 features a 28.1cc Power Boost Vortex engine. The unit has similar characteristics to a wheeled edger, but the primary differences in the lower end, the gearbox and cutter. The gear box is 90 degrees with a flex cable drive straight shaft. The cutting claw is manufactured from high-grade steel with specially designed carbide tips on each cutter for improved durability and performance. The claw has a unique geometric shape that, when cutting, creates a crisp beveled edge. The cutting claw also has a unique scraper fin that reduces clogging.
