Terra Firma expands machinery portfolio

Terra Firma has significantly increased its groundcare machinery offering by adding four new brands to its portfolio.

Terra Firma, one of Scotland’s largest specialist suppliers to the amenity and local authority markets, has recently announced dealership agreements with Kioti UK Ltd, Muthing flail mowers, Woods finishing mowers and Shibaura slope mowers.

First imported into the UK in 1996, Kioti has had a rapid impact in the groundcare sector with its range of tractors, utility side by side vehicles and WD1260 cut and collect mowers. UK sales of these products continue to grow and the ranges continue to evolve.

Woods high-performance finish mowers ensure a clean, crisp, manicured appearance year after year and the unique rounded front, tapered-side rear discharge deck allows operators to mow with better manoeuvrability – reducing trim time and increasing productivity. Heat-treated, alloy steel blades provide maximum performance and precision cutting for all turf care applications. The combination of a deep deck, baffling and unique rear discharge design ensures premium results.

The Muthing Mulching range is manufactured in Germany to the highest of standards and is renowned for producing high performance flails for the agricultural and groundcare markets. Notorious for their high quality of cut and mulching capability, there are a wide range of flail mowers available whatever the requirement.

Shibaura manufacture professional multi-purpose slope mowers for precise daily maintenance of slope areas. The machines are notoriously high powered, feature a low centre of gravity and allow operators to work comfortably and safely over steep inclines.

Commenting on the new dealership agreements, Allan Wright of Terra Firma, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to further extend the portfolio of machinery offered by Terra Firma. The Kioti product range has proven to be robustly built, well-designed and offers top quality products at a competitive price. We look forward to further promoting the Kioti brand across our territory in Scotland and Northern England and building new relationships with our ever-expanding customer base – we feel it will fit perfectly for our customer profile.

“We are also delighted to announce our partnership with Muthing flail mowers, Woods finishing mowers and Shibaura slope mowers - further expanding our capability to provide our customers with a wide range of quality specialist equipment.

“In my opinion, Muthing flail mowers are recognised as one of best flail mowers on the market with fantastic reliability and quality of finish; Woods finishing mowers are rugged, dependable and are proven to be very productive in terms of area cut per day and Shibaura is unique in offering bank mowers that can cut on inclines of up to 30 degrees.”

Terra Firma is well-placed to offer an excellent customer experience for sales and after-sales support, spare parts and service, and the new machinery is available with immediate effect.

The full range of groundcare equipment will be showcased in the all new Terra Firma Machinery Catalogue which will be released in January 2019.

"Yes, loads of people on the forum seem to rate etesias very highly. I just worry about buying second hand. I'm sure you could get a bargain but I guess you could also get a "duffer" with no comeback. I'm not really in a position to risk that. "

"I have the Stiga twinclip which is 95% the same as the mountfield. It has the GC 190 engine. And it is an excellent bagger. I dont think the 0.5hp is really going to matter much as my kaaz mower is an even better collector and has a less powerful en…"

"Thanks Dave. Good point. I think Mountfield must be replacing the gcv190 with the gcv170 you can get the sp555v with either engine at the moment. Decent pick up is paramount.. I wonder whether the dual blade in the Mountfield actually collects 20% m…"

" You don't say whether you need ramps for hand mowers or a ride on machine. If it is a ride on, then get some proper ramps and don't even think about timber/boards. Apart from potentially and most likely not being strong enough, you will spin wheels…"

Dave Colton replied to Jon Perry's discussion Honda GCV 170
"The thing that would sway it for me is the basket, the Alko with plastic basket should be the better bagger when wet due to greater air flow vs a fabric bag but the Mountfield does look like quite a good wee mower for price."

I'm in the market for a new mower. I have a £600 budget. Probably using for about 2 hours a day on average. I've looked into, and dismissed, battery mowers. I was on the verge of buying an Alko 527 vsh with the tried and tested Honda gcv160 engine.…
