McMurtry have announced the arrival of its latest radio controlled robotic mowers designed to operate in dangerous environments such as sloping ground and close to waterways.
The RC-01 and RC-02 mowers enable operators to reduce risks and improve productivity at the same time.
With McMurtry’s radio control system and electric hybrid drive technology the RC-01 and RC-02 tracked machines allow safe cutting of grass and larger vegetation on sloping ground, unstable surfaces as well as under low hanging branches whilst minimising any risks to the operator.
Available in two sizes of rotary mower the RC-01 (610mm cut width) and the RC-02 (1015mm cut width) provide property owners and contractors two cost effective options of bank mowing up to 45°.
“Even a slope of 15°can be extremely hazardous to an operator of a ride on mower if there are unfavourable condition such as wet grass, uneven surfaces and even the type of tyre,” designer Richard McMurtry told The Landscaper . “From vehicle slides to full machine rollover, all these risks must be assessed. Even using an operator on foot with a strimmer has its own hazards from slipping, noise and vibration white finger. The RC-01 and RC-02 minimise all these risks as they are operated remotely from much safer conditions.”
With prices starting from £9995.00 ( +VAT) interested facility owners, contractors or indeed anyone considering maintaining sloped ground and reducing risks to personnel are encouraged to experience the cost effective benefits of radio controlled mowing.
