Operator Friendly Kawasaki Trimmer Is Field-Tested

KGT27B provides perfect mix of comfort and performance.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—With years of “in the field” experience, the Kawasaki KGT27B commercial string trimmer ranks as one of the most popular trimmers with professional landscape managers. This is due to performance characteristics and durability as well as ongoing recommendations from crews using the KGT27B on a daily basis.

This unit is a favorite with workers because of its light weight plus low engine noise and the trimmer’s low vibration. “This string trimmer is engineered with a vibration damper where the engine fits to the aluminum drive shaft tube,” says Brian O’Neil, Kawasaki product specialist. “The damper reduces vibration to the shaft and, with its variable position rubber grip handle and light overall weight, the KGT27B is one of the easiest trimmers to operate during long summer days.

“By removing any unnecessary weight in the trimmer’s design, we have been able to deliver one of the best power-to-weight ratios in the industry, without sacrificing durability,” O’Neil says.

The KGT27B trimmer is powered by Kawasaki’s reliable 26.3cc engine, designed with a heavy-duty crankshaft and roller main bearings. The TJ027E is engineered with a “stratified” two-barrel carburetor design that buffers fresh air between the outgoing exhaust and the incoming air/fuel mixture. The design cuts the amount of unburned fuel in the exhaust and delivers a fuel savings of up to 25 percent over the previous TJ027D. The catalyst exhaust system further reduces emissions for a cleaner environment. The engine is also equipped with an enrichment starting system instead of the typical choke, which helps to eliminate the chance of flooding the engine when starting.

A heavy-duty felt panel air filter keeps incoming air clean to protect the engine, and the air filter cover is easy to access for filter maintenance.
The KGT27B trimmer can be outfitted with extra accessories for added work capabilities, including a hedge trimmer attachment that features a 20-inch effective cutting length and is easily maneuvered for straight or angled cuts. The KGT27B also can be equipped with a twin turbo blade accessory for added cutting capability. The dual blades rotate in opposite directions for precise cutting and to eliminate clogging.

The KGT27B string trimmer features Kawasaki’s “Leading Edge” warranty, which covers commercial use for two years and consumer use for five years. This warranty also includes lifetime drive shaft and electronic ignition module protection. Buyers have a 10-day money back guarantee on Kawasaki handheld power products.
