Edge Styler PLUS
The high demand for robotic lawn mowers also increases the demand for machines that can bury the required wires into the ground. Eliet introduces the Eliet Edge Styler Plus, an attractively priced machine designed for burying cables into the ground. The design paid special attention to ease of use, safety and working speed.
WHEEL DRIVEThe machine has a wheel drive that pushes the moving knife forward. When the knife moves forward, the wheel traction helps increase the stabbing power. However, the resistance of the soil which the knife must penetrate will counter the stabbing, when the knife moves backward the wheel traction counteracts this, which creates a damping effect. In this way ELIET manages to counteract the vibration through the way the machine was built. In the machine's Pro model, an additional vibration damping system is integrated into the steering wheel. This also filters out the high-frequency vibrations.
GOOD VIEW OF THE WORKING AREAThe blade that digs the cable into the ground is on the side of the machine, offering the user an excellent view of the working area. It also ensures more freedom of movement in the curves.
LOW VIBRATION LEVEL
Because the machine makes stabbing movements to create the lawn edges, this logically creates pulsating or jolting movements, which is unpleasant for the operator.
SAFE DEPTHThe specially designed blade meticulously cuts through the grass turf without causing any visible damage. The DC wire is fed through the blade via a tube and dug into the lawn at a depth of approximately 5 cm. At this safe depth, the wire doesn't risk being damaged during later lawn treatment such as aerating or overseeding.
The ELIET Edge Styler has an engine with an integral reduction gearbox. This enables the torque to be increased approximately 6-fold. Consequently, the engine does not have to run at full throttle. 2,800 rpm is more than ample to provide enough power to the blade and the wheel drive. This characteristic improves the petrol consumption, and the operator also benefits from a reduced noise level.
PEDAL WITH RATCHETING MECHANISM
The Eliet Edge Styler features an "ratcheting step pedal" on the lower right of the machine, allowing the operator to use the strong leg muscles to position the blade to the desired work position prior to inserting it into the soil. The release handle for the blade mechanism is on the left-side handle grip. Elevate the rear of the machine off the soil and squeeze the handle to release the blade control mechanisim. Step on the pedal repeatedly until the blade has racheted to the desired work position. Then lower the rear-end of the machine and guide the blade into the soil.
It is important that you rachet the blade to the correct work position before inserting it into the ground, so as not to unduly stress the blade racheting mechanism.
This convenient blade control system is another example of Eliet's devotion to ergonomic excellence!
A football player has studs on his shoes to provide a better grip on the field. The wheels of the ELIET Edge Styler were also equipped with rubber studs to have a better grip on the lawn, especially when it is wet. This offers the extra advantage that your terrace will not be damaged when you drive over it.
The Edge Styler Plus comes with a coil support that can be adapted to several types of wire spools.
The machine is designed to ride on two wheels. Two wheels provide perfect sideways stability but still allow for extreme manoeuvrability. The machine does in fact have three wheels, but the third wheel is a swivel wheel and doesn't impede the machine's manoeuvrability, but it was added to the design at a later stage to increase the operator's comfort.
* The knife moves at the level of the axle line of the two carrying wheels which insures that it seamlessly follows the wheels' tracks. This makes it easier for the operator to form the desired round shapes. For cutting straight borders the swivel wheel can be locked in its straight position. This reduces the moveability of the machine, which is not desirable for cutting straight borders. The guidance arrow on the side of the machine serves as a guideline if the operator laid out the border in advance using a tie line.
