New Etesia fleets for two Welsh councils

Terry Harrison Machinery has recently equipped two of the largest councils in Wales with new fleets of Etesia PRO 46 pedestrian mowers.

After previously working in the groundcare industry for 23 years, Terry Harrison formed his company in 2012. Terry started his career as a service engineer before progressing into a management position, gaining experience and knowledge in every aspect of running a groundcare machinery business.

Over the years the company has witnessed continuous growth and is renowned for its excellent aftersales support and customer service. Terry has also worked hard on adding several market leading machinery franchises to its portfolio - one of which is Etesia.

Etesia UK is a company that specialises in building high quality grass cutting machinery for both the professional and domestic market. Started in 1995 with only one walk-behind and one ride-on machine, Etesia UK has grown rapidly and now offers a wide range of products that include a variety of walk-behind, ride-on mowers and the widely praised Attila range of brushcutters.

Terry has been an Etesia dealer for the last seven years and predominately distributes the equipment to councils, contractors, and local authorities. Just recently, he sold 34 machines consisting of PRO 46 PHTS3 single speed self-propelled and PRO 46 PHE3 push pedestrian mowers, to two of the largest councils in Wales.

5385736054?profile=RESIZE_584xFollowing the same concept of the PRO 46 range of pedestrian mowers first launched in the early 1990's, both models feature Xenoy cutting decks for increased strength, shear washer crank protection, individual height of cut adjusters, a new 22mm handlebar design, the latest Honda GCV170 engine and are supplied complete with 80 litre grass box and rear deflector as standard.

The design has been proven over many years and has an unbeatable record of quality and performance unrivalled in its class. It provides outstanding collection performance, even if the grass is long and wet – something that Etesia has prided itself on over the past 30 years.

One main feature of these models is the ‘one cut’ principle. This means the grass is only cut once before being sent to the grass box. The benefits of this are reduced power consumption from fast deck material ejection and secondly, as it is not multi-chopped, the grass does not stick to the cutting deck in the same way as multi-cut grass does preventing unwanted blockages. The grass box is manufactured for maximum strength and comes complete with a fill indicator.

Commenting on his recent business with the councils, Terry said: “The Etesia brand is hugely popular with our customers. They are comfortable for operators, well balanced and they do the job they are supposed to do. 

“Their ability to cut and collect and cut and drop in all weathers is an enormous benefit because there are not too many mowers that can do this. The Etesia machines are incredibly robust and reliable. Users find that they do not break down and they do not need to buy parts or take them to workshops. It is for this reason why they are so good for councils and local authorities, especially with the amount of use they have. In fact, the councils tend to order new fleets of Etesia every year – which shows just how good they are.

“The PRO 46 pedestrian mowers are incredible,” he continued. “They can deal with a wide range of grass areas and verges. They can also be used in small areas where tractors cannot get to.

“Working with Etesia UK means a lot to me.  We have had a great relationship with the company for many years and Les Malin (Managing Director of Etesia UK) has always been one of the most helpful people I have ever dealt with in this industry. I couldn’t say enough good words about Les and Etesia UK.”
