Dec. 7, 2012 — Oregon is expanding its 40V Max Cordless Tool System to include a trimmer/edger, hedge trimmer and rapid battery charger.

The ST250 Trimmer/Edger and the HT250 Hedge Trimmer combine the convenience of cordless tolls with power and performance. They utilize the Oregon PowerNow battery platform, a system of premium lithium ion batteries that are compatible across all Oregon cordless tools.

“We’re excited to introduce more tools and accessories into the Oregon Cordless Tool System,” said Alan Lofurno, business unit director for Oregon. “Battery powered tools continue to grow in the industry as users demand the convenience of no gasoline and no cords.”

The ST250 Trimmer/Edger, with its dual line cutting head and flip-down edge guide, is a true two-in-one 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 9.4l pounds with an endurance battery pack, this lightweight, well balanced, straight shaft trimmer offers excellent ergonomics and an adjustable large grip handle.

The HT250 Hedge Trimmer features 24 inch 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 pounds with the standard battery pack, or 9.8 pounds with the 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 charges.

All three products will be available in spring 2013. For more information, visit www.OregonCordless.com.
