Simon Davies is making good use of his stable of Kubota workhorses on the family farm in the New Forest where his wife keeps competition horses at their equestrian complex covering 30 acres.
The priority is to ensure that paddocks, lawns and other grassed areas are maintained in immaculate condition.
Five acres of ornamental lawn around the lake are cut to a top quality finish using the Kubota G23 ride-on rotary mower. Using a 23hp Kubota three-cylinder ETVCS water-cooled diesel engine, the mower offers plenty of power to ensure a clean, smooth cut every time.
“The finish is exceptional, and the mower is able to cut and collect the clippings on the first pass regardless of conditions, which was not the case with our previous machine,” comments Mr Davies. “I really like the large collector which fills completely to its 530 litre capacity, so I am not always running backwards and forwards to empty it. It also tips hydraulically so I don’t have to leave the seat.”
Cutting at a fixed height of 2in with two passes at right angles to each other, the G23 gives the freshly mown lawn an immaculate, smooth appearance, he points out. But it is also versatile. “In autumn it will pick up and collect all the fallen leaves,” he says. Clippings and debris are mixed with stable muck, making an excellent compost.
