PROTEA is the market leader for professional-quality turf care machinery in southern Africa. Its products are used in every South African municipality, in all the region’s first-class cricket grounds, almost every bowls club, numerous golf courses and football stadia. The 914HD 36-inch Heavy Duty mower is officially approved as the standard pitch mower for the South African Football Association (SAFA).

PROTEA’s mission is to produce the finest quality professional machinery which can perform to the highest standards, under the toughest operating conditions at the lowest possible cost, season after season. Combining simplicity with solid engineering all machines are devoid of gimmicks with production costs focused where needed; strong chassis, highest quality components and the best engines available. Customer feedback and refinement over the years has led to a range of machines which are easy to operate, simple to maintain and a delight to use at prices far below competing brands.

European versions were first made available in 2005. Retaining the ruggedness and reliability of the South African originals they incorporate further safety, ergonomic and performance enhancing developments such as low vibration “comfort” controls allowing continuous use for long periods and folding handles to aid transport and storage on the Greensmowers and Groomers. Electrical interlocks provide a high level of operator safety whilst allowing the grassbox to be emptied without stopping the engine, and reversible cutting cylinders are fitted on HD models to prolong life before replacement. Honda GX motors are fitted throughout, chosen for their reliability as well as their clean, economical and quiet operation, and a range of options are possible allowing you to tailor a machine to your exact requirements.

The cutting quality and finish is exceptional; in blind trials carried out by a major publication PROTEA mowers equalled or surpassed competing brands. The open frame design of the machines makes them easy to clean, maintain and service. A long list of testimonials accumulated over many years is proof of customer satisfaction.
