HEAVYDUTY (HD) DUAL-DRIVE
Amongst the most rugged and reliable cylinder mowers now available in the UK, Protea Heavy Duty “HD” mowers, in 24-inch, 30-inch and 36-inch widths, are suitable for a very wide range of fine turf applications from cricket squares through to outfields.
Standard features include an 8-blade precision ground cutting cylinder, dual rear rollers with removable roller scraper, tip-over steel grassbox, and the reliable and fuel efficient Subaru Robin EX17 6 hp and EX21 7 hp engines.
Every component has been proven in the harsh conditions of their South African home market, earning these rugged machines an enviable reputation for reliability. Industrial-quality bearings, heavy gauge steel chassis, heavy-duty transmission components and cable-free drive controls all contribute to a long service life. Simple, positive operator controls are combined with ideal weight and balance, making even the 36-inch version feel light and easy to operate.
Designed to be easy to handle, simple to use and maintain, extremely rugged yet give a first class cutting performance, these mowers will reward domestic and professional users alike.
Customers can order any of the “HD” models to suit their exact requirements from a wide choice of options. For example, a 12-blade cutting cylinder with shaver blade can be fitted for precision cutting of very fine turf where a heavy machine is preferred to roll as well as cut. A low-ratio sprocket set can be added to increase cutting pitch from 96 cuts/metre to 121 cuts/metre (and up to 181 cuts/metre with 12-blade cylinder). A highly effective and densely packed nylon brush strip can further enhance cut quality. A detachable sulky seat is available for those who require a ride-on facility and finally, a choice of reels can be fitted for grooming or brushing. Further information on reel action can be found in the 500SVGsection.
Reassuringly for professional users, a full range of spares and service parts is readily available at sensible prices with a next-day delivery service. A two-years parts and labour warranty is provided together with full telephone technical support.
Priced far below any comparable machine, every model in the “HD” range offers unbeatable value.
