Ag Rhino came to Lamma last year with a natty on-board pressure washer system. This time they had something different, a front-mounted, vertical-transport mower.

The prototype on show was a 3m unit, but the production will use a more mainstream 3.2m version. It can be raised vertically to the right or to the left and is mainly aimed at farmers doing zero grazing.

Most butterfly mower systems on the market are relatively bulky, points out David Henderson, especially getting through narrow gateways into fields. However, his machine is much slimmer and easier to move from field to field.

He expects the first production versions to be available in late summer and plans to sell through agents. List price is expected to be about £15,000.
