KENNARDS Groundcare has introduced a new ride-on slasher mower designed specifically for long grass, rough terrain and hillside mowing.
The 'Sumo', as it is aptly named, is built tough. Powered by a 21hp Kawasaki engine, a direct shaft drive to the cutting deck enables it to tackle and knock down long grass that up to now, a tractor and slasher attachment would have been required.
The Sumo is a four wheel drive giving it unique hill climbing ability, combined with four wheel steering that provides great manoeuvrability around trees and tight areas.
The 900mm mower deck is rear discharge with electric height adjustment. Additionally, the deck can slide out to the side an extra 150mm for close cutting along the edge or fence line of job sites.
The Sumo Mower is available for hire from Kennards specialist Groundcare Divisions in Melbourne and Sydney. It can be purchased from their sales arm, Work Smart Equipment based in Sydney.
