Maruyama launches new brush cutter for spring summer 2013
We're delighted to tell you that Maruyama is launching a new power tool for spring and summer! It's the Maruyama BCV5020 50CC Semi Clearing Brush Cutter, and we're looking forward to supplying it to professional and keen gardeners alike.
Maruyama is a company which constantly develops its techniques and ideas; this latest model benefits from their fastidious strive for excellence as it exceeds the company’s already high standards of technology, performance and design.
The ultra lightweight BCV5020 has a new anti-vibration system, which uses oversized volumetric anti-vibration dampers, located in tandem on the front side and the engine side. The round shape of the vibration damper is streamline and compact for smooth operation.
It also has a new gear case. The revised-size gear wheel provides more durability than conventional brush cutters and a pressed gear blade shaft for reducing backlash. The inside gear case has improved machining accuracy, and the blade shaft angle has been revised to 60 degrees (55 is conventional for brush cutters).
The BCV5020 has a useful tool-free handle adjustment: the central wing nut enables easy adjustment without the use of tools. For transportation and space-saving storage, the handle can be rotated 90 degrees.
Maruyama NE engines are engineered with high compression ratio (7.5) resulting in higher torque and power. Optimised intake, transfer and exhaust port timing contributes to delivering optimum power and efficiency, as does the shape of the port itself. The cylinder is precision machined to exacting tolerances after the chroming process, all sharp edges around the ports are relieved to prevent piston damage, and the base of the cylinder is chamfered to allow for easy installation of the piston. The cylinder is made of chrome-impregnated aluminum, which is machined to exacting tolerances for the greatest durability and highest performance. Finally, it is polished to a smoother finish than conventional honed chrome.
Maruyama drive shafts are precision manufactured of high-carbon steel, and polished for low drag and less vibration. Six durable pre-lubricated bronze bushings support the drive shaft to reduce wear, vibration and power loss.
The Maruyama range includes hedge trimmers and brush cutters, multicutter systems, edgers, blowers, long reach hedge trimmers and accessories.
In field trials, at a Manchester BMX park in heavy rain and sunny conditions, the new model performed well. The operator reported that he “... found the machine to be very good. Replacing the line is a lot easier and quicker than other makes and models currently used. The machine started on the first pull of the pull cord almost every time, when it did not, it started on the second. The machine powered through the material being cut very impressively; sometimes other makes of brush cutter, when cutting the length of grass being cut, clog up with the grass wrapping itself round the cutting head, but this did not happen with the Maruyama.”
Our verdict? This is an excellent, hardworking power tool representing a good value, quality investment. We’re delighted to be able to handle its UK launch, and we know it will be well received by gardening and landscaping professionals.

Hand Held Blowers for grass not just leaves!
Hand held blowers are ideal for clearing leaves, but they are also useful now - in grass cutting season - as a hand held
blower can help tidy up grass cuttings from the lawn plus paths, patios etc.
Tidying up in the garden can be a very repetitive and seemingly never-ending job, more so with leaves and grass cuttings, but a hand held blower saves time and back ache, and is an alternative to raking.
We're ready to talk about the Maruyama Hand Held Blower 3100 – it offers great value, durability and performance. In short, it works hard season after season.

May Gardening Jobs
We’ve put our heads together here at Country Field Garden HQ and come up with some of our suggestions for things to do in the garden in May – and we’d love to hear yours!
Once all risk of frost has passed, you can start sowing vegetables and salad plants outside however while it is still nippy at times keep an eye on the weather and ensure vulnerable plants are protected from continuing late frosts. Mulch around newly planted trees and shrubs to retain moisture and reduce weeds. Talking of which, keep removing weeds as they attract pests and diseases which will attack your plants. Mow the lawn regularly and repair any bare patches. Keep adding fresh garden refuse to your compost heap as it should be kept damp and turned frequently so that it will turn into flower food a lot quicker! Weather permitting, dahlias, lilies, gladiolas and other summer flowering bulbs can be planted this month. Look out for slugs and snails as they are out in force now – control them before they start reproducing and take hold! Here’s an idea worth trying: container grown plants, such as hostas, which are prone to slug damage can be protected by coating the rim of the pot with Vaseline as the slugs won’t be able to crawl through it. Happy gardening!
