Sometimes you have a job that needs doing, but you don’t need to do it often enough to justify a dedicated tool. That’s why Shindaiwa offers the Multi-Tool, a powerplant and shaft that works with a wide range of add-ons that are built with the same quality as their stand-alone units. These accessories let you use your M242 or M254 for a wide range of common landscaping tasks.
This attachment uses Shindaiwa’s own Speed-Feed 375 head. Its small design is a perfect fit for small displacement engine like those found in the Multi-Tool, but it still has the same easy-to-load system found on their purpose-built trimmers and brushcutters. How easy is it? There’s no need to take apart the head to put in new line: Just line up the eyelets with the arrows on the head, feed in some line, and twist a knob to wind it up on the spool. That means faster changes with no tangling and no lost parts.
Articulated Hedge Trimmer
With 10 positions of articulation, the head on this trimmer can be positioned to give a comfortable operation position in any condition, while a 20 inch bar makes quick work of brush and bushes. The standard trimmer comes with a 28 inch shaft, but Shindaiwa also offers a mid-reach version that brings total length from 48 to 33 inches for trimming in tight spaces.
The rubber paddles on this motorized broom can move gravel, mulch and other debris off of any paved surface, but they’re gentle enough to use on turf without damaging the grass. Want to get rid of pine needles and leaves on your lawn? This is the perfect tool for the job.
An 8 inch steel blade digs deep for sharp edges, while an open-face shield and a single rear wheel makes it easy to position for a clean finish.
Need to cut up high? This pruner couples a 10 inch long chainsaw bar with a 58 inch shaft to reach distant limbs.
Need to cut close to the ground? Like the hedge trimmer, Shindaiwa also offers a mid-reach version. It has the same 10 inch bar, but a shorter shaft gives the unit an overall length of just 19 inches, making it ideal for trimming bushes and small trees or cutting limbs off of a downed tree.
The tiller attachment has a gear case with a 42:1 reduction, multiplying torque to cut through the toughest soil. Thanks to the shape of the blades, they can be used with the leading edges out for cutting through hard dirt or with the edges in for weeding and turning soft soil. Either way, this attachment cuts a 6.5 inch wide swath, leaving the dirt ready for gardening.
