“Samurai” arrive in UK

 

 

Bedford based ICB Plant & Machinery  has just been granted the exclusive distributor rights to market the Japanese Canycom range of brushcutters in the UK and Ireland.

 Marketed under the “Samurai” brand, they  believe these are the only mechanical 4WD – Shaft Driven deck equipped all terrain brushcutter mower in the UK marketplace.

ICB Plant & Machinery Limited, a family run company, also holds the exclusive distributor rights in the UK and Ireland for Canycom construction tracked machinery.

MD, Ian Staniforth, told  The Landscaper ,“We are delighted to be the sole importer and distributor of these quality Japanese made mowers. Their ability to destroy anything that passes under the cutter blades is incredible; their unique shaft drive makes them so much more destructive. The brushcutter videos on YouTube demonstrate their staggering capabilities.”

The shaft drive means that 100% of the power from the industrial Subaru engines is transferred to the cutting blades. This enables them to cut longer and taller vegetation and branches up to 36mm. In contrast, belt driven designs can experience a reduction of 30% of their power before reaching the blades and they tend to have problems with belts slipping and snapping.

The Canycom “Samurai” range of ride-on brushcutters are hand built using steel forged in their own factories, following centuries-old processes. Notably, the quick release cutting blades are manufactured using the same processes as those of a Samurai sword (which the family made for generations before brushcutters)

These very low centre of gravity four-wheel drive machines have a stability angle of 30 degrees which makes them extremely versatile, powerful machines. An additional feature is the Hydro + Mechanical Drive system, which has all the benefits of an automatic transmission with the power of a mechanical drive.

Dealer opportunities are also available in selected areas.
