Heavy cutters added to range

OPICOS range of Bush Hog rotary cutters has been extended to include the mid-range, heavy duty 280 series, which are available in working widths of 1.5m, 1.8m and 2.1m (5ft, 6ft and 7ft).

Designed to cut material up to 5cm (2in) thick at a cutting height of 4cm to 26cm (1.5in to 10.5in), the machines are considered to be suitable for mowing grass or light brush.

Standard specification includes adjustable slip clutches, a 90hp-rated gearbox and solid rubber wheels. The machines are three-point-mounted with a flexible top link to allow a degree of float when operating on rough terrain. Prices start at £1957. &#42
