Etesia launch new Bahia model at SALTEX 2017

Taking centre stage on the Etesia UK stand at SALTEX 2017 was the new Bahia Hydro 80 MKHP4 E-Connect ride-on mower, which also won the SALTEX 2017 innovation award.

Visitors to the show were able to get a first glimpse at the new model ahead of its official 2018 release.

Thanks to a series of clever technological innovations, the new E-Connect Hydro 80 is even easier to use and a pleasure to work with.

Featuring a membrane keypad and a new LCD display, the control panel on this machine is intended to be as simple as possible to work with while giving you all the information you need at your fingertips. Another innovation is the RFID antenna, with the key ignition replaced by the use of RFID cards for simple, touch-sensitive starting. This also means you can set up various user profiles to give particular people the right to use the machine, while it helps guard against theft, too.

Benefiting from a full shut down system, the battery can be protected and saved during extended machine stops. This also allows you to work on it in safety, and transport the machine without worry. An app is available to allow you to recognise and display nearby machines with Bluetooth, while additional information about the machine, instruction manuals and available accessories, straightforward ordering of parts and accessories, as well as easy monitoring of maintenance periods and costs are all close at hand.

The Hydro 80 is a versatile machine that can collect in all conditions, also benefiting from a mulching insert included as standard. The 80cm cutting width, 240 litre collecting box and impressive Kawasaki FS481H 11.7 kW engine give it the cutting performance and raw power to impress while operating. Thanks to a range of additional accessories, users are able to extend the versatility of your machine so that you are ready for any scenario when working.

Commenting on the launch of the Bahia MKHP4 E-Connect, Etesia UK operations director said: “This machine will appeal to fleet managers, who wish to keep accurate records on what the machine has been doing in terms of maintenance, costings, performance, and output. It can also be fitted with a range of attachments for a wide range of applications.”

"I use a Stiga Twinclip 55 (the 3 in 1) and it mulches as good as any dedicated mulcher I've ever used. I highly rate them."

" Shame about this one, but most apple trees which you can expect a crop from can be quite young so it's certainly worth replanting and starting again. If the client invests in a reasonable size tree it'll be cropping in no time. "

" Definately remove and re-plant.
It is always a shame when a nursery is prepared to let someone buy a poor specimin like this in the first place - at least if you go and choose one, you will make sure it does not have co-dominent leaders!"

"Thanks for that Gary, what a good idea.  I have looked at some draw bar springs but they are the wrong configuration. Perhaps as you suggest trailer manufactrurers may be able to point me in the right direction."

Gary RK replied to Mike Lish's discussion Tethering A Runaway
"I'd talk to one of the UK trailer manufactures - IforW or Wessex Trailers.
They build to spec and/or customise trailers and will probably have come across a similar requirement, so may be able to size/supply ?

Tethering A Runaway

I have been specialising in stump grinding for the past 18 years throughout Anglia.  Over that time period I have experienced  loss of drive to the wheels on a number of occassions while on site (a real bummer) and twice while up/down loading from…
