Hedgetrimmers join the range

THE range of machinery available from dbi Machinery now includes two hedgetrimmers. The FC470 has a 4.7m reach and is equipped with a 1.2m flail head while the similarly headed FC500 boasts a 5m reach.

Both machines are fitted with taps on the main rams to allow the operator to restrict the speed of their response – should the cable control system prove too active.

Other features include a hydraulic break-back system – the smaller model having a ram which can also be activated in the cab to provide a degree of slewing action. The FC500 has a purpose-built slewing action

Prices of the two models are £5995 and £8995, respectively.
