The interplay between you and the machine

Jonsered takes the interaction between man and machine extremely seriously indeed wherever tools are designed to be strapped onto the body. The design and individual adjustment options of the harness play a crucial role in this respect, as it's the harness that distributes the machine's weight so that the body is not put under unnecessary strain. Therefore the harness should not hang loosely, but sit tight against the body. The machine's suspension point should also be adjusted so that you obtain the correct working angle to the ground.

There are also several other fixing points on a saw, partly so the cutting equipment works parallel to the ground and partly so the machine is correctly balanced.

Most brushcutters are equipped with vibration damping between the engine and shaft. However, as soon as the cutting equipment starts to bite, other vibrations and types of impact occur. To overcome this Jonsered has developed a unique anti-vibration system. The whole of the upper section with the handle and the section that rests against the body is isolated from the engine and shaft. Jonsered also has a full anti-vibration system on machines fitted with loop handles.

The ideal starting point when clearing is this: A straight back, the hands extended comfortably in front of you and the cutting equipment directly in front of the body.

As Jonsered brushcutters have an angle between the double handle and the shaft, offset 7 degrees to the left, a left-hand sweep is not obstructed by the body and handle colliding. It is this which allows you to effectively sweep in both directions, without excessive twisting of the back.
