The Gadget Show

The new Countax Williams FW-4WD will feature on Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, due to air on Monday 4th August at 8:00pm. The programme reviews several lawnmowing products currently available, including a robot, and a mower which operates on a rechargeable battery. Now in its 9th series, The Gadget Show has become well known for it’s unbiased review of new products and technology.

The new Williams FW-4WD is equipped with a 16hp twin cylinder engine, and with 4WD capability, this new mower has been designed to cut and collect grass on slopes up to 30°, and in marshy areas of the garden where greater traction is required.

The four wheel drive ‘4TRAC’ technology has been developed by Countax specifically for its ride-on lawnmowers, with a unique transmission design which automatically increases and decreases the turning speed of the front wheels to eliminate scuffing. This ‘Dynamic Traction Control’ offers ultimate scuff-free slope performance for the perfect lawn. A unique Countax built in safety feature, the Electronic Slope Alert, sounds an alarm to warn the operator before reaching an incline too great for safe mowing.

The Williams FW-4WD sports the latest Williams F1 team colours, as is fitted with a 107cm/42” cutter deck as standard, however alternative cutter decks are available including 97cm/38” mulching deck, and for really tough areas, the 92cm/36” high grass mulching deck will tame any paddock, scrubland or high grass area. Dense weeds, nettles and brambles can all be mulched into small particles, and large areas can be cleared very quickly

All Countax tractors feature the unique Operating Management System, with microprocessor control, which keeps the operator fully informed with a dashboard display of functions including indication of 4WD engaged, and correct RPM for optimum performance. The Williams FW-4WD has the added benefit of electric deck lift, allowing the operator to adjust the cutting height with the touch of a button.

The new Williams FW-4WD ride on mower comes with complimentary cover and security wheel clamp, and is available from all Countax dealers, SRP £5245 inc Vat, 107cm/42” cutter deck and powered grass collector.
