Wiedenmann UK known for robust reliable mowers that can be used day in, day out has launched a ‘Fold on the Fly’ cutting deck.
Aware that professionals need exceptional build quality and easy operation, they introduce an infinitely versatile front mounted cutting deck, the Super Pro FXL 230 H mower.
With up to 2.3 m cutting width, its ‘fold on the fly’ side wings enable operators to vary the width of cut through three width settings without stopping. This gives the potential for approximately 30% higher productivity in comparison to a 180 cm mower, greatly reducing the number of ‘passes’ required while minimising soil compaction and potential wheel tracks.
Both hydraulic wing decks lift and lower independently.* A unique double pivoting system means that while the side wings are raised, crucially the belt tension remains constant and there is no risk of the belt coming off. The height of the cut remains the same between the centre and the side wings, even on undulating surfaces. Overlapping blades ensure a stripe-free cut.
Ideal for use on both on level and graduated areas, the side units can tilt by 10° allowing them to cope with uneven surfaces. In tight areas the side wings can be retracted so the cutting width can be just 140 cm
The Super Pro FXL 230 H uses DuraBlades, Wiedenmann’s most elite blade, designed with a slight bend to maximise both the quality of the cut and safety. Friction disks protect the blades from damage when they come in to contact with a foreign object and the blade’s enhanced cutting edge is longer than the blade ‘bed’ so prevents damage to the blade support system.
The high overcut between the blades ensures uniform distribution of the clippings and clean mowing even in tight corners. Rounded edges on the mowing deck mean that the ‘flow’ of grass clippings exit freely without blockage. Anti-scalp rollers come as standard and the mowing deck can be easily raised for maintenance.
As many as 90% of Wiedenmann’s current mower customers request the optional Mulch Star kit to give their mowers recycling capability and the Super Pro FXL 230 H also has this option. Uniquely developed mulch blades and special deflectors create an air stream of mowing material, which is finely shredded before it falls to the ground reducing considerably the need for fertilizer or the disposal of cuttings.
Importantly, the FXL 230 H has a transport width of only 185 cm so taking it from site to site need not be an issue.
RRP is from £11,350 with the optional mulching kit at £930.
*Additional spool valves are required for the power unit
