Ride-on, rough-cut mower

We currently run TurfTeq rough-cuts in our hire fleet at County Hire, and would like to add a ride-on machine but know very little about them. Suitable-size ones we have looked at on the net seem to have a cutting width of 90-100cm; does that sound about right?

Any information from fellow-members who have had previous experience of using ride-on rough-cuts would be much appreciated.

    Rough cut as in capable of handling foot long grass like a side discharge machine or a ride on brushcutter like an Etesia Atilla?

  • PRO

    Past experience of Etesia AK's & AS-Motor's rough cut ride-on's

    Ideally criteria would be to fit thru most gates but there in lies a problem as most of the smaller ones are physically 1m wide (with an 85-90cm cut), loadable into a Medium sized vans (like Vivaro/Transit etc) provides best flexibility.

    Suggest there a few other options.

      Hi Gary,

      What was your experience of Etesia and AS?

      • PRO

        Both did a fine job, but preferred the AS simply because at the time it was hyrdostatic where as the Etesia AK was a manual gearbox.

        Very similar in capability and they could both be loaded into our vans.

          Thanks v much Gary. Did you hear any opinions about the Orec or the Iseki SRA950?
