Protea Greensmower
~ Options & Specifications ~

Optional equipment for the Greensmowers includes a wheeled transport cradle which simply slots underneath the rear roller. It allows the machine to be manoeuvred effortlessly across longer distances and protects the undercarriage from possible damage when moving across hard surfaces.

For those users who prefer a mower to be driven under its own power without the cutting cylinder rotating then dual drive versions of the 510G and 630S are available. By simply moving the control lever from “cut” to “drive” the cylinder is disengaged and the rear rollers can be driven separately to move the mower to the required location. Moving the lever back to “cut” restores drive to the cylinder. Both of these lever positions are locked by a positive “click”.

For those customers who wish to change cutting height quickly and accurately without the need to use a setting gauge, we offer the “G” mowers with dual “click” type adjusters. One complete turn alters the height by 1mm with four clicks per full turn.

An optional “wiehle” grooved front roller is available on all Greensmowers. This minimises turf flattening and resists worm cast pickup thereby aiding the most accurate cut possible. It is height-adjustable and removable and can be fitted by the user quickly and easily.

The transport cradle and grooved “wiehle” front roller can be ordered at any time as separate accessories. However, the dual drive system and “click” type adjusters are original factory-built specifications and cannot be retro-fitted to an existing machine.

For all applications where the Greensmowers are suitable, users should also consider the Groomer-Verticutter described in this brochure. Most of the routine maintenance work on a green is performed by these two machines working as perfect partners, with the pair costing far below the price of any equivalent cassette machines on the market.

Customer support for all PROTEA machines includes a comprehensive 2-year parts and labour warranty, next-day spares service and expert telephone technical assistance throughout the life of the machines.
